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

Pros

Offers interesting projects and new challenges which allows one to leverage all of their skills and KNOW they've added value at the end of the workday. Very satisfying. Ego is checked at the door and everyone has an equal seat at the table. Highly collaborative culture. Opportunities around every corner if you want to grow your career. Coworkers are friendly, and the executive team really cares deeply about their work family. Very strong Human Resources department staffed with a caring team of professionals.

Cons

Collaboration can be challenging to folks that aren't used to it. No free rides here, everyone from the top down roll up their sleeves to get the work done.

Advice to Management

Keep working to instill corporate culture and values to all employees whether they are full time or part time. Continue hiring from within by recognizing potential.

    Pros

    Generous vacation and sick time accrual. Many stores opening across which should translate into opportunities.

    Cons

    Extremely poor communication at store level. Totally lacking true accountability. Company needs to have a feedback system that protected against retribution.

    Advice to Management

    District managers should talk to the team when in the stores and not ignore issues.

    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
