    I worked at Harbor Freight Tools part-time

    Pros

    The company is mid-sized but growing, so it is more personal than larger hardware companies. On the first day, I met the District Manager for the region and he actually helped us set up the new store. I got a great sense of community from this company.

    Cons

    The management of a new store was a bit unorganized. I wasn't aware of scheduling until a day or two before, which proved to be inconvenient.

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools part-time (Less than a 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 Management

    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!
