    Corporate is Outdated but Changing

    Information Systems (Former Employee)
    Matthews, NC

    ProsVery nice people at the corporate office, although the long term employees were cliquish. The Kroger acquisition is changing things.

    ConsCorporate IT is behind the times in processes, tools and methodology, despite a pretty good PMO, but with the Kroger acquisition, things are changing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your Corporate office staff like the professionals they are. Requiring a doctor's note for illnesses, giving minimal PTO like the stores get, using paper checks for bonuses for last-minute pull back, and immediately escorting out someone who tenders a 2-week notice are all petty power plays that alienate your biggest assets.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been with the company since 1989. I have opened and worked for several stores in the Central District division.

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
    Durham, NC

    ProsLeadership potential. When I began to work here I started working as a floater for two stores. One was over at the Carrboro Mill Mall store and the other over at Glen Lennox. I also worked as team leader for University Mall store,the Cary West Village location and the Homestead Market location(where I have been employed for the past 15 years).

    ConsManagement that blatantly give employees awards for doing absolutely nothing and I have seen this upfront in detail in several stores including the one that I worked at. I have seen management overstep that boundaries with employees who don't apply to company standards. Also to point out management lets those sorry employees get away with mischief in different departments and really don't care about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Harris Teeter Cashier (Former Employee)
    Apex, NC

    ProsFlexible hours, great teams, great incentives

    Consvery competitive, One week you might get 35 hours and another week you might be short to 10. Can't be dependent if you got to pay your bills.

    there is a remarkable degree of inconsistency from top to the lowest paid clerk

    Fresh Foods Chef (Current Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    Prosthe pay is decent for this region and most managers try to accomodate their employees needs.upper management is good at "company speak",but don't quite deliver on most topics.

    Conspoor communication within the store management to their employees.based on the daily activity observed in several stores the company values don't translate well with any degree of positive consistency

    Advice to Senior Managementstore and co- managers ARE NOT very good at recognizing just what is actually happening in various departments aside from just NUMBERS. TOO MUCH DISPARITY

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Company

    Assistant Customer Service Manager (Former Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsGood Health Care benefits, Great with working around a school schedule, Very customer service orientated. Probably the best retail grocery company to work for. Tons of available staff in the stores

    ConsNot much room for progression in the company once you reach a certain level. Tons of training involved which can become extremely repetitive.

    It's everything you'd expect.

    Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee)
    Chapel Hill, NC

    ProsThe employees have a very team-oriented mindset. The facilities are nice and always satisfactory.

    ConsThe pay is bleak, at best. Lower management will promise you a raise then upper management will not agree to follow through. The customers are picky and stuck-up and constantly confused by policies.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good job for a person thats in college to help pay the bills, but not a life long career choice.

    Customer Service Clerk (Current Employee)
    Greensboro, NC

    ProsFlexible hours (for people in school or having multiple jobs), customers are great (get to interact with a variety of people), good first job, fairly simple task to accomplish.

    ConsManagement is demanding, high micromanagement, lack of communication between management and employees, holidays are demanding and overwhelming.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and make them happy, and they will return more work.

    nice place to work if you have low standards

    Produce Clerk (Former Employee)
    Winston-Salem, NC

    Prosfriendly environment, lateral movement in the company is fairly easy

    Conslow chance at full time jobs, upward movement on the corporate ladder is a very slow and arduous process

    Advice to Senior Managementmake sure your associates are treated like people. you are making progress towards being like wal-mart and that's not a good thing

    The people have all been friendly, but the store I am working in, and possibly the company are very disorganized.

    Cashier (Current Employee)
    Cary, NC

    ProsThe schedule is very flexible. The managers definitely work with you to make sure you are working the shifts you want.

    ConsThe training is virtually non-existent. After I had finished my training, I still had no idea what the company benefits were and if I qualified for any, how to find my scheduled shift, how to sign on to the employee web page for access to schedules and personal information. I also learned that my sign-on information had been entered incorrectly by whoever (I'm assuming in HR) set it up. So even if I had sign-on information I was unable to use it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStress the necessity of personal training to department managers, rather than relying exclusively on the computer module for new employee training. This is more important for employee morale and feeling connected to the company than the practical aspects of training. A cash register is not difficult to figure out, but feeling like you're a stranger working in an organization, without the opportunity to connect to your co-workers doesn't provide the connectedness that makes employees proud of their company and consequently connects well with the customers as part of that "family." Using the bonus checks as a carrot will only be effective for improving work ethic and customer service with some personality types. Be familiar with the different MBTI types and what makes people want to do good work.
