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

Pros

Variety in duties and great co-workers makes it a fun company to work for.

Cons

Not enough hours available. They hire too may people so that everyone get 12 hours a week. Not acceptable.

Advice to Management

Give the dependable and hard working employees more hours and let the lazy ones go.

    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".

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