Featured Review

Current Employee - Customer Service Representative

I have been working at Ace Hardware part-time for less than a year

Pros

Usually dealing with local customers that value your input and knowledge. Help people understand their issues and work through projects with them. When it's not busy there usually isn't much required... to do.

Cons

Can be boring if the day is slow. Depending on the store and the owners it can be understaffed when busy. Deceivingly large product base that you need to understand.
