I worked at Harbor Freight Tools part-time (More than a year)

Pros

as long as you can get ITC's and ESP's your paycheck can either be very good, or very bad.

Cons

parking lot sales are literally hell on earth. It will make you or break you.

Advice to Management

Managers and assistant/store manager were great people to work with, district management needs to breathe before they get a hernia. Quit moving things every week, it confuses the already overworked cashiers, and the customers.
