    8.75/hr..Bust your butt!!! Treated like dirt! High Turnover...

    Produce Clerk (Former Employee)
    Burlington, NC

    ProsNothing Really....Wait! 6 month bonuses a few hundred bucks.

    ConsLow Pay...Only Part-Time 28 hrs max.....Full timers treated much better! Allowed to take breaks without getting the "stink eye".Not hiring full time....Regardless of how hard you work. North Carolina companies are notoriously brutal, mean, spirited and anti-union. Harris Teeter examplifies this all the way!! Don't shop here They suck!

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit being such butt kissing toadies...you're pitiful...Some people work hard!! Recognize that!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ....'good to worst'.....

    Assistant Produce Manager (Current Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    Pros....the twice a year bonus which is now questionable with Kroger being the parent company......

    Cons...cannot wait to leave the company in the coming year, they talk a good game like Walmart fighting back with their ads saying how great it is to work there but in fact it is the most horrible from an employee morale point of view. Talk to anyone in the stores and if they are willing to tell you the atmosphere sucks because of the constant, always in your face, 'company is coming', audits after audits, after audits and more audits!!! Zero overtime or threats of"write ups" or "documentation"!!. We have 2 arms but they insist on 6 arms and they don't care but they expect it to be done! As far as who you are in the company they don't give a @#$t!!. Don't use your brain just do as we say or we'll "write you up" is a very common comment. This career path is now strictly just a paycheck!! with the clock ticking for departure. I can truly say that I speak for many many people working for the stores but they are 'afraid' of their 'job' or tell anyone. Yes, this may sound like a rant but I challenge anyone to find and speak to the people in the stores and "IF" they will tell you in honesty what they really think about the company.

    Advice to Senior Management....advice to the company!!??......as if they don't already know!!.....they should just fly back in their or shall I say 'we employees company jet" and think about the word "PEOPLE"!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst job I'm ever had

    Baker (Former Employee)
    Winston-Salem, NC

    ProsI truly enjoyed many of my customers.

    ConsNumerous problems with management. Dishonesty, mistreatment, discrimination, hostile environment and human resources job is to protect the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn my many years as an employee/manager, I have never been so humiliated by my employer as I experienced with HT. The discrimination and retaliation is openly accepted by male management and human resources. I would say go undercover to see for yourself but I have a feeling that you are very aware of what is really going on there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    greensboro distribution

    Dry Grocery Associate (Current Employee)
    Greensboro, NC

    ProsFairly good benefits, the pay is so so.You will do well if you want to work 7 days a week all the time,unless you are in supervision then you do not do anything, hardly work and yet suprisingly get promoted,getting to do outside chores for the director helps you as well(washing his car,mowing his yard.etc.)

    ConsManagement cares absolutely nothing about you,except for what they can get out of you,if you cannot work then they send you home,if you get hurt on the job you are written up and treated like a criminal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPLEASE LEAVE!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible company who cares nearly nothing about their Employees

    Customer Service Manager (Former Employee)
    Chapel Hill, NC

    ProsPay is better than industry standards for most positions
    A twice yearly bonus check is certainly nice to have

    ConsCorporate Management cares only about the bottom line at the expense of the employees.
    Atmosphere is typically toxic as you have to fight constantly for hours and recognition
    Expectations are typically excessive and incredibly unattainable
    Store Management is of little assistance when dealing with employee dissatisfaction

    Overall, this company has fostered an atmosphere of mistrust and disloyalty by constantly putting the needs of the employees to the bottom of the priority list. Hours are cut without any explanation, making it impossible to budget appropriately for everyday life. Policy and procedure is changed without any regard to employee safety. Considering how employees make or break the success of a company, it would seem that fact has been lost on the management of this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that without your employees, your success both past and future is limited. These are the people who greet and serve the customers that come to your stores, which has a direct correlation to your future. Having happy and healthy employees lead to happy customers. This should really be one of your main focus points.

    Could be a great company, but they don't care about employees

    Starbucks (Current Employee)
    Cary, NC

    ProsPretty good benefits, starts out paying more than min wage.

    ConsAwful management, treats employees like crap. Always cutting hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut pay of people in corporate and give more labor to stores! It's the workers making all of the money for company anyway

    Not a good work environment for students.

    Cashier (Current Employee)
    Gastonia, NC

    ProsHarris Teeter is a nice store with good customer service.
    decent pay.
    two bonus checks per year.
    flexible hours.
    full-time benefits

    ConsHORRIBLE student leave program - students are able to take a 16 week leave for a 52 week year. After that, I had come home every other weekend just to keep my job for the summer and for holidays. I also couldn't get a transfer to a store closer to my school because they already had "too many" transfers from students on educational leave. However, for some reason, my checks kept getting sent to the store I tried to get a transfer for. No one ever told me that this was going to happen so for a while I went without getting paid until management finally "figured out" where they were. Then, the first week I was home for the summer, management "forgot" to put me on the schedule, therefore I was at risk of being terminated. To top it all off, approximately two weeks later, we find out that six of our stores will be closing IN TWO WEEKS, with one of them being the one I work at! We had no idea and had less than a week to let corporate know if we were going to transfer to a different harris teeter or quit. Needless to say, corporate obviously did not consider their employees when they made this drastic and sudden decision.
         Also, I have worked there for three years and have only gotten one 15 cent raise. I had to train my bosses before they got promoted. I have watched management stand around and chit-chat while we were so busy that we barely had time to breathe. Oh, and the only time we ever had baggers was at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Cashiers were expected to do everything - get carts from outside, clean bathrooms, do store sweeps, bag, and ring up groceries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some time to consider your employees! They work hard and don't get promoted or get any raises whatsoever. We never get a "good job" or "well done" even if we come in to work hours early and then continue to work and clean the store over an hour after its closed. Just a piece of advice: listen to what employees have to say because more often than not, your policies look better on paper than they actually are in reality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
