I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (More than a year)

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 Management

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

    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.

    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.
