      I worked at True Value full-time

      Pros

      The people are absolutely fantastic, there is a very strong culture from Halloween parties where the departments compete in costume contests to 5K runs and summer barbecues. There is a fun work hard, play hard atmosphere at the Reunions and it is great to support the store owners who embody local, small business. Diversity is prioritized and there are a lot of ways to get involved from the diversity council to the foundation...
