    Can be a great place to work, but politics is the name of the game. Who you know not what you know

    Pros

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    Good benefits, nice customers, excellent product offering.

    Cons

    Labor cuts are drastic, each person is expected to meet unattainable goals. Customer Service no longer there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please let some of the upper management wealth trickle down and translate into more labor provided at store-level. Bring back true Customer Service Excellence.
