Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Kansas City, MO

I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Generous vacation and sick time accrual. Many stores opening across which should translate into opportunities.

Cons

Extremely poor communication at store level. Totally lacking true accountability. Company needs to have a feedback system that protected against retribution.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

District managers should talk to the team when in the stores and not ignore issues.

Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Its a pay check with benefits if you are a manager. The potential for growth and success exists. But current management is clueless.

    Cons

    The worst retail operation I have experienced in 30+ years of professional experience in the industry. Routinely asked to perform tasks for which little (but more often NO) training has been given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers how to properly train their employees. Cleanliness standards do not exist. Operational policies routinely ignored.
