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

Pros

I enjoy being a part of the HFT team for many reasons. The company has grown so much and in its evolution, I feel our leadership team really works with all levels of the organization before making any drastic changes. I feel my opinions are valued. I can honestly say that the owner of the company as well as our senior most leaders truly care about its employees, are appreciative of all our work and genuinely exercise our core principles.

Cons

Meetings can often times go off track, run late, start late or get cancelled. Lots of work with a lean staff. However, it is refreshing to see how teams pull together and accomplish great things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to management would be to bring back the employee engagement survey. I feel it is important to allow all employees to voice thier thoughts, concerns and ideas.

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A lot of room for advancement and the company supports growth as long as you execute the company plan. The customer base is amazing and the most loyal customers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. The company structure is a pay for performance environment and if you execute the company plan and follow the rules the reward is very nice.

    Cons

    Distribute more payroll for training purposes. .

    Cons

    some of the challenges is poor management and lack of communication and not enough team work and not treating there employee with the respect they deserve and they dont respect ur availabilty at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    my advice is that they work more as a team and communicate more and teach there management staff to have more respect for there employees instead of taking to them like they are a piece of garbage
