    good place to work

    Frsh Foods Clerk (Former Employee) Greensboro, NC

    ProsThere is good advancement opportunities for hard workers, the management cares about the associates and it is a nice clean work environment.

    ConsVery hard work I the Fresh Foods Department. So many audits, mystery shops and upper management visits that it keeps everyone on edge so scared to mess up. Very tense work environment. Insurance for family coverage is so expensive it is ridiculous; hardly pays to work.

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

    Great company, but retail can become overwhelming.

    Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsCompetitive pay for retail/grocery, flexible scheduling, opportunities for growth if interested.

    ConsRETAIL, customer is always right which can affect morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more time to understand your employees. Develop a career track for those interested in growing with the company.

    I have been with the company since 1989. I have opened and worked for several stores in the Central District division.

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) Durham, NC

    ProsLeadership potential. When I began to work here I started working as a floater for two stores. One was over at the Carrboro Mill Mall store and the other over at Glen Lennox. I also worked as team leader for University Mall store,the Cary West Village location and the Homestead Market location(where I have been employed for the past 15 years).

    ConsManagement that blatantly give employees awards for doing absolutely nothing and I have seen this upfront in detail in several stores including the one that I worked at. I have seen management overstep that boundaries with employees who don't apply to company standards. Also to point out management lets those sorry employees get away with mischief in different departments and really don't care about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Fun place to work if you are driven by money.

    Assistant Inventory Manager (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsIf you like shopping at Harris Teeter, then you would love the employee discounts.

    ConsJust like all companies, customer satisfaction is one of their number one priorities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStore manager stresses out the manager in charge of the crew, including the assistant managers...who also stresses out the assistant manager of the crew...who also stresses out the crew. Can't lie, but work was stressful most of the time especially when you have to compete with time.

    Not the best

    Deli Clerk (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsYou can basically get the job super easily, and write it as experience on your resume. Thats the best thing about HT. Only get this job if you can't find anything else and need the money.

    ConsMost managers learn how to be managers at Jerks-R-Us, and its who you know and who you're friends with that will get you a raise. And if you're mean.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    there is a remarkable degree of inconsistency from top to the lowest paid clerk

    Fresh Foods Chef (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    Prosthe pay is decent for this region and most managers try to accomodate their employees needs.upper management is good at "company speak",but don't quite deliver on most topics.

    Conspoor communication within the store management to their employees.based on the daily activity observed in several stores the company values don't translate well with any degree of positive consistency

    Advice to Senior Managementstore and co- managers ARE NOT very good at recognizing just what is actually happening in various departments aside from just NUMBERS. TOO MUCH DISPARITY

    Good Company

    Assistant Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsGood Health Care benefits, Great with working around a school schedule, Very customer service orientated. Probably the best retail grocery company to work for. Tons of available staff in the stores

    ConsNot much room for progression in the company once you reach a certain level. Tons of training involved which can become extremely repetitive.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
