    I worked at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good hourly pay plus commissions.
    Opportunity to advance if you show effort.

    Cons

    Typical small store, high volume retail store.
    Very stressful at times, especially during "Sidewalk Sales" "Parking Lot Sales".
    Employee turnover rate is very high like most retail spots, so get ready to do your part and more.

    Advice to Management

    As long as you're honest with fellow management and you guys know what needs to be done and when, everything should be fine.

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun and fast paced. You have the support of senior managers and HR. I have been with the company for some time and it really has come a long way and much more to come.

    Great 401K program and great benefits. The owner of the company and the CAO are working their hardest to make this company one that eximplifies a fair, honest and productive place to be.

    Cons

    Lots of work (fun) but often time departments are pretty lean, but this too is getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with your employees while being kind and professional.
