Hire within is a joke from the start! Interview was a far illusion from reality
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – West Springfield, MA – September 17, 2018
Since i have begin working i have see one promotion within. I have see 4 to 5 outsode hires into the management team. Some even ask questions down. Not very professional Anyways. Ive been working there for 2yrs, started as a part time sales associate still a part time sales associate. I have applied for promotions and i am more then qualified for the positions & have been on many management teams for other companies. Unfortunately We just experenced a managment turn over, went from highly abusive bullies to new management team 2 hires from outside when they definatly have talent instore. I know my job very well Action Oriented ( sell the top ITC and ESP plans on a monthly basis), CUSTOMER FOCUSED (some say i have the largest customer following they have seen) composure ( well we could definatly all need some encouragment on a job well done not just the negatives that could be put on us) I have spend alot of my free time to watch reviews and learn the products, brands and more about Harbor Freight as a company. I was very excited during my interview to start with such an incredible company but 2 years in I believe I have gotten all i can out of a job if not promoted soon i will have to jump ship. Unlike the "intiltled" young kids who live at home with there parnets. I support my children on what i make. I must say the reviews are helpful if you are like me and set personal goals l .. raises are insulting.... No staff meeting either to discuss any issues.
Love my customers very good at my job
Hire out alot more then hire within! See as "just a chick" Stuck as a sales associate
