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

    Pros

    The people were the best part as we had to stick together to make the misery of working there be a bit better

    Cons

    Many of the VPs and above were mainly there for themselves not the company (ie: Too many power maneuvers and CYA activities); NO respect for work-life balance; Jekyll and Hyde bosses were they act nice to others but behind closed doors, they're really office-psychopaths toxic environment who demean and berate their employees; overly-political; bad culture overall from all POVs: customer - they tweak online product reviews, delete many bad ones so only average to good ones apprear); employee - see above and; suppliers - they don't look for win-win solutions only win-lose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management won't listen...employee engagement surveys were ignored.

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

    Pros

    As it stands - I haven't seen much in the way of pros because I am too busy picking up after everyone else that leaves!

    Cons

    Turnover rate is incredibly higher than any job I've worked in my life; ill managed, poor work conditions, and generally a negative place to be!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bouncing around the scheduled, treat your employees with some respect, and don't make the place where you work.... a place where you can potentially die in!
