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

Pros

Real low pressure, definately has a small shop feel. You can easily befriend your managers and customers will sometimes know you by name. Sales goals are fairly easy to meet because of the no nonesense esp's and the high customer loyalty. Pay is competitive and raises will come twice a year if you earn them.

Cons

Needs more staff! traffic is unpredictable even during weekdays so you will have a massive rush of customers for hours with only a cashier and a manager on the floor. Also there are absolutely no full time jobs outside of management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

try to keep a third person (preferably one with cashier duties) as backup, customer service and facing/store duties every night until close or at least an hour before close.

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you work here you will get a paycheck, accrue PTO time, and get to work around tools. You will learn from the customers.

    Cons

    What was once the best place to work for has become an abyss. The founders son is not concerned with the associates and their families welfare (his father was, and is). The son is only concerned with lining his pocket and amassing wealth. If you work here, you will have a job. Not a job you can count on keeping.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to a good person who cares about people and their families.
