Pros

Wonderful management and co-workers to work for. Straight forward working requirements.

Cons

The computer softwares are antiquated. Having to work 5am every Monday because of lack of dedicated receiving staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The computer systems and software need to be brought into the 21st century within a reasonable amount of time.

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As an employee there are no pros

    Cons

    Abusive tyranical leadership. "The emperor wears no clothes" I have watched so many really good executives crash and burn. As review and bonus time comes each year it is the same story cut cut cut..find any reason. Recruiting is in a tough spot trying to find replacements. With each generation of new leadership rercruiting, the pool is diluted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you should leave

    I worked at Harbor Freight Tools part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only good thing I can say is that it was a very short drive there.

    Cons

    $7.50 an hour in Victoria TX. My superior was ALWAYS in the back & no where to be found for help. Many co-workers where no show constantly & if they did come in they where high. I was told by two employees my first week "everyone here smokes weed". I started looking for another job & got one. I quit Harbor Freight by walking out when I was confronted. Today was my last pay day and the check is no where to be found.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone, close store, hire people who actually want to work, restock the many empty shelves, open with a crew & new management that doesn't spend majority of their shift in the office on the phone.
