    One of the best benefit packages in the state of South Carolina.

    Pay for associates low but trending upward.

    Advice to Management

    Heavy investment into a reliable CCTV covering inside and outside of the D.C needed to take the guesswork out of incidents.

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and management. Reasonable, but not awesome pay. >90% of the customers are happy to be buying tools, and are friendly. We won't talk about the <10% or the 1%.

    Cons

    Work schedule. Since Atlas/Kronos came on line, hours are unpredictable and change at a moment's notice, you have to check your hours every night before bed, even though a few days ago you weren't scheduled for tomorrow, you might just be now. This makes it hard to plan events around work.

    Advice to Management

    Better scheduling, make employees know when they will work in a manner that less frequently messes up their off-work life.
