    It is a good company as long as you can operate at high levels of stress

    I have been working at Harris Teeter

    Pros

    The pay is fair, but the bonus is very nice to have. The atmosphere is always fast pace, and the work day goes by quickly.

    Cons

    Very high stress from upper management. Hours are continously cut, and expectations have become unrealistic. Upper management continues to get out of touch with stores by adding more standards, but taking away more hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to trim the upper unneeded positions, and put the money into properly staffing stores.

    Excellent Benefits for full time employees

    Current Employee - Deli Clerk in Wilmington, NC

    I have been working at Harris Teeter full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits if you're a full time employee and the pay is ok depending on which department you work in.

    Cons

    I wasn't given proper training and reprimanded when mistakes were made due to the lack of training. It seems to be the norm and if you speak up about it you've pretty much sealed your fate. It's possible that this is only prevalent in the particular store and department I work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't trust that the store director and department managers are doing their jobs properly just because there aren't complaints made. Anonymous surveys or something along those lines should be in place. If hourly associates are "secretly shopped" managers should be held accountable for poor job performance as well. It's hard to rate the company itself when your not treated fairly by one or two managers.

    Pros

    the job is overnight so you don't have to deal with any customers at all, pretty cool if you ask me

    Cons

    The pay is not equal to the amount of work that you have to do and staffing is always an issue

    Current Employee - Fresh Foods Clerk in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you have a decent knowledge of food you will enjoy sharing ideas with others and showing them new products.

    Cons

    Depending on the department you work in the work load can be quite heavy. Working in the deli/fresh foods department has been a nightmare. Corporate has so many restrictions on the way things are done, and our new managers actually watch video to make sure you are following all procedures and protocols and if you aren't they write you up. For the amount of work that we have to do we do not have nearly enough people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even the workload out among your employees. Far too many responsibilities fall on the closers of the deli and we end up staying late quite often. Also look into how much work your employees do for the amount they are paid. Half of our deli is contemplating quitting because of the exorbitant amount of work and the sad wage we are paid.

    I worked at Harris Teeter full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It's easy to get promoted and get raises if you do what you're supposed to do and not mess around. Be reliable and don't argue with customers and you won't have any problems. You get bonus check which I loved.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great but like I said, don't mess around and you can have opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking advantage of how hard your employees work. Pay needs to be better for people who deserve it.

    Its an ok place to work. Its retail so what can expect. Typical long days, some boring, some fast pased. The freezer can be cold. Especially when you start your shift and haven't warmed up yet.

    Cons

    Hours are never at your convince.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    loosen up. don't be so tight. Employees work better

    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good company overall with great benefits for full time. Part time benefits after 60-90 days but only dental and vision which doesn't work for someone with children or seeking more.

    Cons

    Benefits are not great for part time, once hired, you see how disorganized they really are (depending on your store). Not enough employees therefore managers are overworked and stressed constantly. Management says there is room to move up but they know it won't happen, very disappointment for someone looking to grow with company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give false hope in interviews and if someone tells you the department or area they are better in, placing them elsewhere may not ever be the right fit. Maybe be ok to keep looking for suitable candidates. Offer more advancement to employees within that show interest in moving up

    Pros

    They have pretty good benefits and they are very thorough with customer service. They provided quick and easy training that made you feel prepared for the job

    Cons

    Not many cons. It really varies from store to store. I guess my only con is that they don't actually fire you, they just stop putting you on schedule without much of an explanation
