Great, if with right management!

Head Cashier (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsCustomer 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!

ConsIt'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 Senior ManagementConsistency, clear direction through HQ to Retail Associates and active managers (not passive)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No accountability

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools part-time


    Pros: Flexible with schedule, and middle management is decent. Cons: The company is very inefficient, and hemorrhages money. Advice to Senior Management: Communication is life or death for a company. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
