    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Harbor Freight Tools in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is all online. Very quick process depending on the hiring manager. One phone interview followed by a personal interview. Standardized interview questions. Must pass background check but it is very vague. No drug screen required. Level of training is dependent on the store management. Computerized training now for standard procedures. Rest is trained by experienced employee or manager. Typical training is a couple days of process training followed by being thrown into it and you sink or swim.

    Interview Questions
    • Knowing what you now know about this position, why will you be successful?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiating is pointless. Unless you are going for Assistant Store Manager or Store Manager your pay level is set and experience doesnt matter. ASM and SM you have very little room for negotiating; we're talking cents not dollars.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Harbor Freight Tools in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was extremely long. I initially applied at the end of november. As the month of January was coming to an end, I began to lose hope. Suddenly, I was finally contacted by a recruiter from Harbor Freight Tools by February 2, 2011. Then it took an addional 3 weeks to go through the interview phase.
