I have been working at Harbor Freight Tools full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Harbor Freight is a great place if you are a person looking to make an impact. The company is growing like crazy adding 50+ stores a year, this gives the right person a great opportunity to showcase their talent among a very driven peer group.

Cons

With any company that is growing you are going to have "Growing Pains" Harbor Freight Tools is not without its own. The company is in the process of developing and rolling out new programs related to Freight Management, Pricing as well as many others, for the wrong person looking for a ultra stable work environment this may not be the right time for you. Those leaders looking to help grow a company will find it a very enjoyable setting.

Advice to Management

The leadership at Harbor Freight Tools has never been better! They currently have what I consider to be highest quality management team that the company has ever had.

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

    Pros

    Performance based culture, great opportunities to contribute, flat organizational hierarchy provides great exposure to senior management and opportunity to make a difference; non-political environment, deliver for HFT and let HFT take care of you

    Cons

    Unique culture requires associates to understand it and become a part of it; processes are being defined, shaped and implemented continuously, but requires associates to work with fluid and an evolving environment presently. Dealing with ambuiguity, communicating well and working well with other team members is important to success and associates that do the above well are destined to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay transparent and communicative, staying on course to grow steadily and generate value for our customers
