    I worked at Ace Hardware part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at a suburban Chicago Ace for over four years. I was paid minimum wage, even after those four years. The main reason I stuck around was because of my co-workers. They're my second family and I've never felt that genuine connection between employees anywhere else I have worked. Our "regular" customers were another reason I worked there for so long. They were more like co-workers than customers - many of them knew their way around the store like the back of their hand.

    Cons

    Over my four years spent with Ace, I only made minimum wage. I was a good employee who attained a 100% on all the mystery shop evalulations I had recieved. The store manager was rude to both employees and customers, and drove sales down during the period in which she was there. It was also extremely difficult to take time off - even one day. Management required you to find someone to cover your shift in order to take that time off - but they never once allowed anyone to work overtime.
