    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job. You stock the product and then sell the product. Some companies have a seasonal room that always changes. Harbor Freight Tools doesn't have that issue.

    Cons

    Senior management does not have a clue how things work in a store. Pushing mailing cards hurts selling Inside Track Club memberships. Why should customers pay for something they just signed up for for free.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone that comes into the store wants to fill out a mailing card. There is not supposed to be a quota but apparently there is.

    I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bonus structure was good. As long as you hit sales & profits, you made decent money, which was not difficult.

    Cons

    Negative atmosphere from upper management. Did not train or develop their store managers. Expected them to be perfect from day one, with little or no support.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people instead of opening 40-50 stores every year. You need Quality people and training to continue your growth. Don't just rely on your cheap tools to keep the growth going.
