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

Pros

Great place to work for someone who is just starting out in the workforce and doesn't have very many skills, and managers seem pretty willing to work with just about any schedule.

Cons

Very little opportunity for advancement, managers seem to stay managers, assistant managers stay assistant managers, and associates stay associates. Hours are divvied out based on sales performance, so working in the warehouse and having little interaction with customers means you might just see your hours dwindle down to 8 hrs a week.

Advice to Management

Find a way to promote and reward hard-work aside from basing it on sales. Create a policy requiring schedules be posted a few days before the beginning of the week. Appreciate your employees.

    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.
