High turn over

Management changed for the worse. In 24 months, 46 employees came and went. No positive feedback only negative. Having a good work ethic goes completely unnoticed. Bonuses awarded for beating sales goals went umpaid multiple times! Hours worked "mysteriously" didn t show up on your paycheck. When minimum wage went up in 1/2020 no adjustments were made for supervisors. I would not recommend employment here!!

Pros

Buying product at cost plus %20

Cons

Ownership, Management, Lack of Training, Benefits

Management needs work

I loved the job. But if you are sick, or appointment it's frowned on. I learned everything that was asked, yet to do propane they knew the danger and still had you do it without being certified. Not all Ace hardware's are like that.

Collaborative work environment

I enjoyed working there, the people were welcoming and it felt like a community. The managers were looking out for their employees and always making sure they were happy.

Pros

Free stuff if things were about to expire - the treatment from everyone was loving

Cons

nothing

Franchises don’t offer much opportunities

Good for part time employment or retired individual. No room for advancement and if there is an opportunity the compensation isn’t much. Customers can be very demanding and at times entitled and inconsiderate. They expect you to know everything and even want you to work on their projects for them in the store. You try to explain to them you are not a professional or a contractor and if you were you wouldn’t be at a retail store making minimum wage.

Nice place to work.

Owners were nice caring people. Managed well. Appreciated and acknowledged hard work. The owners valued taking the time to get to know the customer and make sure they have everything to complete their project.

Enjoyable place to work.

Ace was a fun place to work with mostly enjoyable co-workers. Customers came to Ace because they wanted to and were a pleasure to wait on for the most part.

relaxed job but low pay and no benefits

Ace Hardware was a temporary job while looking for better pay with benefits. Standing on concrete floors for long periods of time was problematic. Good job for someone content with perhaps part time and low pay not an issue.

Pros

friendly work culture

Cons

low pay, no benefits

Great place to work

I was blessed to have worked for such a great company. There's nothing that I couldn't say about just how wonderful this place was to work at. The management was always helpful they go out of their way to make you feel like family. This is a great place to get all your hardware at a real reasonable price. The store is very clean organized as well as the employees very knowledgeable of their products. If you need a entry level position start to becoming a customer service rep this place is where you would want to start.

Pros

Everything good here

Cons

they always open except two holidays.

Relaxed and Fun But exremley disorganized

Ace is a fun company to work for, but every store is individually owned, and after working for 4 different owners I can tell you that your experience is completely dependent on the owner's role and participation in the store.

A great place to work if you enjoy learning new things

The opportunity to learn new things from co workers and customers alike abound. Must be willing to listen to customers needs and respond appropriately.

My Nine Years at Tamarac Square Ace Hardware

I learned a lot about work ethics. From working at Tamarac Ace, and I learned a lot about. The different merchandise that I we carried. Like Ballists (a electricity component). And PVC Pipe, Copper Pipe, and other plumbing related parts. That would be compatible with it. And I learned some mechanic skills. Like how to assemble a utility / grocery hauling cart! And I sure learned a whole LOT!!

Fun, Family oriented atmosphere

I began working at Ace Hardware immediately, upon moving to Denver Colorado. However, although the work atmosphere (most of the time) was family, friendly oriented. The location where I worked was not run very much professionally. Most of us found ourselves not trained properly and therefore unable to assist customers to the best of our ability. Although it was like a 9-5 type job, it paid low, and employees weren't given enough hours to qualify for benefits. The opportunity to move up in the job was null. On the positive end, employees were given lunch breaks, and had the experience with one on one time with customers.

Pros

Lunch Breaks, Face to Face experiences with customers

Cons

No Benefits, Low Pay

Assisting customers as needed

I daily assisted the public, stocked the shelves and whatever else was needed to attempt to keep the store operating efficiently. Occasionally I would assemble an item that was being purchased.

Pros

Working some very enjoyable customers

Cons

Learning about the retail business

Productive and fun work environment

I enjoy working in a busy environment. The company pushes employees to further they're knowledge and skills. They show interest in helping they're employees further their work and customer service skills.
