    The employees never seem to have a bad day.

    Assistant Dairy Frozen Manager (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsI like how much training is involved in learning the grocery/ perishable industry. They really make sure you have a good mentor, and are ready for the next level before promoting you.

    ConsEven if you have an advanced degree, you have to start at the bottom and work your way up. Also, working in the stores doesn't easily translate to working in the corporate office, even if you have a degree in business or IT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think the store managers are doing a great job. It can be very stressful on the front-lines, so I only suggest that they try to stay happy at work. Negative attitudes trickle down faster than happy ones, and bad attitudes can have tremendous effects on sales.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work, very fun and enjoyable.

    Customer Service Clerk (Current Employee) Monroe, NC

    ProsThe best reason to work here is the people I really enjoy seeing the regulars come back week after week. I also enjoy helping customers it makes me feel good seeing them walk away with a simile knowing that I just served them excellent customer service.

    ConsThe only bad thing about Harris Teeter is the pay as a customer service clerk there are alot of duties to perform and I don't believe that making $8.20 is enough

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe that management should understand how much that we actually work and appreciate it a little bit more. I can tell that the managers that were former customer service managers appreciate us clerks more than a manager that has came from a different position. I also believe to be a manager, that they should be able to perform almost every single function in the store, but most of the time managers can't hardly do anything on the front end except for the basics.

    Overall I enjoyed my experience

    Cake Decorator (Former Employee) Matthews, NC

    ProsThe job of cake decorating is fun. My coworkers were nice to work with and the supervisor was very laid back...never saw him get angry with the employees. Harris Teeter has great customer service so I also never really had to deal with angry customers.

    ConsThe hours for cake decorating are early since you have to have fresh cakes in the display case before the store gets busy. I did not get that many hours since they hired 3 cake decorators at the same time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure there is an experienced employee to show new ones the ropes.

    ProsAwesome company to work for.

    ConsOften over looked for advancement. Still in favor of the good ole boys mentality or who's son or daughter fits the bill from higher up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to what you associates say. Not just the ones you like.
