Senior IT Auditor

Employment Type

Ace Hardware is in the business of helping communities across America and around the world. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proud to remain open and essential to the communities we serve. To ensure we are able to do that, our leadership team has made the difficult decision to temporarily pause on hiring across all corporate positions in order for Ace’s Talent Acquisition Team to focus its efforts in providing recruitment support to our Distribution Centers. They are on the front lines in supplying our retailers with product so they can continue to operate as essential businesses in their communities. Unfortunately that means we will not be able to reach out and recruit in the interim for this position. We still invite you to apply and will review your application as soon as we resume our corporate hiring efforts. Thank you for your interest in Ace Hardware Corporation!
