Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Its a pay check with benefits if you are a manager. The potential for growth and success exists. But current management is clueless.

Cons

The worst retail operation I have experienced in 30+ years of professional experience in the industry. Routinely asked to perform tasks for which little (but more often NO) training has been given.

Advice to Management

Train your managers how to properly train their employees. Cleanliness standards do not exist. Operational policies routinely ignored.

    Pros

    The work is relatively easy

    Cons

    If you are in a store that has one or two assistants, you will work a lot of closing or overnight shifts. Manager and head cashier seem to get all opening shifts. Raises are a maybe.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the work / life balance. Everyone needs a good schedule and needs of the business can still be taken care of to achieve this.
