    I have been working at Ace Hardware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The incentive program is phenomenal, at peak performance you can earn over $30/h, average around $22/h to $25/h - Doubletime after 12 hours in a single day - Hours earned in incentive count towards overtime & doubletime rates - Management will go out of their way for you, and that's not an exaggeration - The work is engaging, and it's mentally and physically stimulating - Free, quality lunches once or twice a week - Extra work/hours almost always available - Department Cross training available

    Cons

    - Hours fluctuate seasonally (Which could also be a pro) - Daily hours fluctuate, we leave when the work is done & do not have a set amount of daily overtime - Very physical work, heavy items, and fast paced environment
