    I worked at Harris Teeter full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This company have great benefits, Great training to prepare the associates for their job, and safety classes as well are taken very seriously.

    Cons

    It's always a big confusion with management. One don't know what the other one is doing. Too many Managers telling you what to do and they all want something different. No Communication between them or the associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being jerks..

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Only thing that comes to mind is 10% discount on HT brand grocery items.

    Cons

    Customer service managers are downright rude to new hires. Department managers do not bother to learn the jobs of their employees, yet expect new hires to train other new hires. Understaffing causes total failure of any quality customer service, yet you are called into the office on customer complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being helpful and friendly to new hires while they are getting their training done. Try to resolve under staffing issues. (Upper management seems to think staffing at 60% of what is needed is saving money, while exorbitant turnover of hourlies is the result).

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck, and the starting pay (at least for me) is technically above minimum wage. If it had been minimum wage, though, my weekly paychecks wouldn't have been appreciably different.

    Cons

    Horribly inconsistent management, immoral (and borderline illegal) scheduling practices, no overtime or holiday pay, and no attempts by management to treat their employees with any sort of respect.

    Former Employee - Department Manager

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary that never compared to unrealistic expectations of the job

    Cons

    Unrealistic work expectations, constant audits, a primary focus on customer service with no resources to provide proper service with and constant beatings for not being able to deliver. Overworked managers, saw several have nervous breakdowns, and scamming employees with overpriced uniforms, shoes, and no incentives. They only care about their bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real with the expectations, invest in your employees and maybe you can avoid further management walk outs.

    Pros

    Great bonus potential for ALL employees, great vacation/personal hour scale, fast paced and every day is interesting. Customer base is primarily kind.

    Cons

    Mico Management, 'On Call' procedures odd, open MOST holidays and will not pay time and half for working, non regulars are rude and misinformed, management concerned over making labor/bonus than building great staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage with integrity. Build your teams, grow their experiences and you will have a well oiled machine that makes numbers. Also, give people a chance to progress and stop lying to them about possibilities that won't happen.

    I worked at Harris Teeter

    Pros

    -Great first job, this taught me a lot and I learned how to really interact with strangers
    - Working with friends is always a plus

    Cons

    -Management was unprofessional and created drama throughout the store on a daily basis
    -Management also didn't really do anything ever, they just sat on their phones or watched the associates
    -Coworkers can be rude, childish, inappropriate, and there was a lot of rumor spreading at my store
    -My back and feet were constantly aching during and after work
    -7.75 an hour is minimum wage but when promised a raise, it was usually never given
    -When I left, I was miserable there and couldn't stand going into work
    -On call shifts and people calling out constantly made plan making impossible.
    -Terrible hours, less than 30 a week for part time.
    I really hated working here.

  10. No future here.

    Pros

    They will hire anyone as a part-time employee.

    Cons

    They pay is low and they want you to treat this like a full-time job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more and give more opportunities for advancement.

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

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    10% off HT brand items
    Good pay ( 9 p/ hr, 10.50 p/hr on Sundays)

    Cons

    NO work-life Balance
    NO satisfaction between you and your higher ups
    They make you work overtime on holidays and you don't get your pay from it!
    VERY rude customers
    Long training videos with cheesy jingles played over and over again (with alcohol and tobacco testing videos every 6 months), you get paid for training before you start officially, after that you have to be off the clock to train
    They do not care for you or your needs, do not get sick. You will get written off every time you call out for something important ( I had a family emergency and I had to call out on 2 hours notice, and they made me come in anyway)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your company is nothing but a slave driven company. Your managers do not care for your employees. I rather work somewhere else. I was depressed upon working there. Very bad place to work with.
