    Great culture, great core values

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNorthern Tool is growing fast but still maintains a small company culture where you feel like an asset, not a corporate cog. Management sets high expectations and gives you the tools to achieve them. This company has a great work/life balance and puts a priority on family. Northern Tool lists 6 "Core Values" as its foundation. One of these core values is to HAVE FUN! We are given opportunities to have fun and encouraged to do so. What more can I say?

    ConsI can't think of any cons

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Northern Tool loves it's managers

    Store Manager (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsTakes great care of management on all levels. Great perks, wonderful benefits and they are instated quickly.

    ConsInventory receiving program could be a lot more tight.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStore level management - focus on working ON your business more than IN your business. Delegate your work and show much appreciation for all of your employees.

    Family Company with great management

    Cashier (Current Employee) Murfreesboro, TN

    ProsPay is great and everyone at my store is a big family. Hours they are open are wonderful too...not too late or too early!

    ConsCan't get benefits as a part time employee and stores are so small that if someone is sick or fired....you end up working for them.

    Great family friendly company who offers flexibility and work life balance.

    Corporate Office (Current Employee) Burnsville, MN

    ProsFamily friendly company who offers a lot of flexibility and work life balance. Managers empower employees to do best work. Very fun work environment. Core values are: Know Your Customer, Provide Value, Act With Integrity, Empower the Individual, Be Entrepreneurial, Have Fun. The company definitely lives by these values. The Kotula family is amazing!

    ConsSmaller company (400 employees at corp HQ) so not a lot of options for moving up the corporate ladder quickly, however you definitely are able to grow in your positon and take on more responsibility.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing! One thing I have noticed is that I don't think all department heads live by the core values as much as others and certain areas might be a bit more rigid than others. I absolutely love my department, management team, etc. and hope that others have as great of a mangement team as my group.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
