    Pros

    Management is nice, good about giving your requested time off. They work around my college schedule.

    Cons

    Managers don't respond to your request can make for difficult situations with customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule more front end management to help the cashiers. And hire baggers if you want us to go faster.

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

    Pros

    Good work hours, great pay for me, works with your availability. Not too much stress. My store is great to me. Management in my store is kind.

    Cons

    Biggest, being understaffed often, especially on weekends. I sometimes don't like the on-calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be too cheap. My store has a high turnover rate, so try to retain employees. Try to higher college folks and beyond. Some high school kids are somewhat lazy to work hard.

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

    Pros

    The store I work at has a very relaxed environment, friendly staff that I can call my friends and almost like family. All wonderful people, except for one crazy annoying guy. Decent start pay for high schoolers and college kids with half year bonuses depending on how well your store does over all which is pretty cool.

    Cons

    Seems a bit hard to progress up the ladder, seems like it's more about who you know as well as work preformance. So for hard working introverts, it will be hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly nothing bad to say. Except at times I've had a manager come across condescending which pissed me off.

    Pros

    The customers make the experience worth while. The family you gain with your co-workers also makes the experience an enjoyable one.

    Cons

    Sometimes you can have lazy people and lack of teamwork and initiative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure you are promoting people who want to work and build their employees up and not tear them down to make themselves look better.

    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Managers were fairly understanding and very willing to work with you (usually). Pay was pretty good for a first retail position. Profit-sharing bonus was a huge plus.

    Cons

    Sometimes people could be very childish; occasionally feel lack of respect. A lot of the time, your are just working with a bunch of high school kids who couldn't care less

    Pros

    Friendly customers usually because of being an upscale establishment. Better pay as well.

    Cons

    Some of the management in some of the stores don't care about the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees on the bottom of the totem pole, they see and know what you don't.

    Decent entry-level job, but little incentive to excel.

    Pros

    Good initial training leaves all associates prepared to succeed upon being initially hired. Management has also always been flexible with me when working around another job and personal time.

    Cons

    Two promotions in my first six months of employment that added significant responsibilities and led to a less convenient schedule structure were regarded as lateral moves which did not merit pay increases. Any position lower than manager of a department is paid according to experience rather than merit, which can be frustrating to a new employee who desires to excel.

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, fun people to work with. Good part-time job for high schoolers. Offered a program where students who went off to college could come back on breaks and holidays.

    Cons

    Could be overly boring during slow nights. Management made you stand at the end of your register and basically do nothing when there were no chores, and talking to co-workers was frowned upon during these down times.

    Pros

    Harris Teeter has many locations to choose from. The public opinion of this growing company is very positive because the stores are clean, the customer service is excellent, and the store managers regularly engage and interact with their patrons.

    Cons

    The hourly wage is not competitive at Harris Teeter. You could earn the same wage or more working with other retailers. I came to Harris Teeter with a college degree wanting to work part-time and they only offered slightly more than minimum wage.
