Pros

Customer Service is expected at a low bar, but if you love to help people it's a great place to wow customers!
One of last companies that offers profit from non-merch sales!
Run into a lot of creative professionals!

Cons

It's growing and still creating it's management identity.
Lack of positive culture, a lot of former Home-Depot management (Those that were shed in HD's change.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consistency, clear direction through HQ to Retail Associates and active managers (not passive)

Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    HFT is opening many stores every year and has lots of opportunities to advance your career. I also found the compensation to be good once I had been there awhile.

    Cons

    HFT has change a lot of over the years. The company seems to have a lot of negativity flowing down from corporate and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on creating a positive environment where employees enjoy working for HFT.

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Always busy, nice managers, great break room, awesome spif bonuses. Morning meetings are cool. Love being part of a team.

    Cons

    Wish I could get more than 25 hours a week, but I understood it to be part time. I also wish the registers were faster when there are a lot of coupons. The more coupons a person brings, the system starts to crawl.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really. You guys are great.
