    Pros

    Harbor Freight has afforded me great career growth as well as person development. From store manager to district manager, HFT has been patient in my development and has allowed me to grow into new roles. Not only is the pay competitive with AWESOME benefits, our work life balance is untouchable in the retail world!!

    Cons

    We are growing so fast that its sometimes challenging to keep up, but that's what makes it fun!

    Pros

    HFT offers countless programs, pillars of operation, benefits, incentives, opportunities, and reliefs which aim to ensure and provide for the needs and well-being of their employees. They are both employee and customer driven, making it clear that they go above and beyond to consistently make their employees feel appreciated and treated fairly. The pay is also better than average for similar work, and the store I work at has a great environment.

    Cons

    As with any retail or face-to-face customer service operation, there are times in which chain of command fails and employees face disciplinary consequences for things that are either unclear or could be considered unfair. Expectations for results are high, and can sometimes be stressful and/or unforgiving. Some of their systems and procedures could stand to be revised and updated, which would include fixing inabilities to achieve desired results due to simple systems or structures being added, removed, or replaced.
