No opinion of CEO

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

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
