Harbor Freight Tools

Private Retail 10,000 - 25,000 Employees Headquartered in Calabasas, CA 2024 Active Jobs

In 1977, when Harbor Freight Tools was started as a small family-owned business, we made a commitment to provide working people with great quality tools at the lowest prices. And for over 40 years, Harbor Freight Tools has done just that. From hand tools and generators, to air and power tools, from shop equipment to automotive tools, Harbor Freight offers more than 7,000 tools and accessories at quality levels that match or exceed competing brands, but at prices that are up to 80% less.

Harbor Freight Tools is different. We're not your typical retailer. We're a team of high-achievers, who have a passion for excellence and continuous improvement and obsess about getting things done. We're also equally committed to doing the right thing and giving back to our community. We're allergic to bureaucracy, extra layers of management and politics. And for us, collaboration is the golden rule. We're a 40 year-old, $4 billion company - on pace to $8 billion in the next few years - with the energy and enthusiasm of a start-up. We have over 750 stores nationwide and are opening a new one every three days.


At Harbor Freight Tools, we believe that our most valuable asset is our people. We demonstrate that belief by providing our associates a total rewards program designed to:

  • Attract the Best and Brightest
