I worked at Northern Tool + Equipment full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Retail managers lead by example.
1 hour lunch.
Top to bottom the management is very human.

Cons

Pressure to sell warranties ad nauseum.
Perpetually shifting inventory into new configurations based on plan-o-grams created outside of the building with no exceptions possible. Occasionally making no sense for a particular location but no exceptions.

Advice to Management

You guys are doing just fine.

    Pros

    A few decent people here and there. Work and home life pretty fair most of the time. That's about it

    Cons

    Pretty much everything, horrible pay, shitty raises, awful management from store and corporate levels. Breaks non existent, like pulling teeth to get your OWN paid vacation days.

    Advice to Management

    Employees run this store, maybe you should start listening to those people instead of doing nothing.

    I worked at Northern Tool + Equipment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A paycheck / and medical benefits though not the best in the world. . .

    Cons

    Everyone has a personal agenda to become the great butt in charge. Throw you under the bus is the best example of how day to day work is at Northern. Family owned and claim to be so oriented don't believe it a lie. Spare yourself the misery of working for them. Spent 7 years working there gave over an extra 1 - 2 months a year in overtime and on call. Love to work you to death stay away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of management who prefers suck ups rather than those who actual does the wry.
