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

Pros

reasonable work schedule, good bonus structure for management

Cons

upper management let there egos make poor decisions(regional level).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your good managers/employees who are always there when needed. Also, you can't retain good employees by giving them a 15 hours a week work schedule.

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

    Pros

    Great work schedule, flexible hours if you are an exempt employee, decent benefits package and paid time off. Company is growing, room for growth at the store level.

    Cons

    Plenty of turnover in upper management/executive level at the corporate office. HR department needs a solid leader that understands what the employees need in order to be successful. Lack of recognition to corporate employees that actually do their work instead of "brown-nosing" to their boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better managers that know how to get the best out of their employees. There are plenty of employees that skate by doing less than average work while high performing employees are not recognized.
