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

    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time for more than a year

    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 for 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.

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good job for someone entering the workforce. I appreciate that they hire those with disabilities. Flexible. I was able to take leave for school and still have the job when I needed it, but that may have changed. I was also able to transfer to a location closer to my school for part of the year.

    Cons

    Drama, unprofessionalism in management. Fraternization. May be able to move up, but likely only if someone likes you. Large variations among stores.

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

    Pros

    Good chance for advancement, good incentives and benefits. There is also a good chance to do more things in store than just work a register, you can work in many different departments

    Cons

    The part-time hours vary weekly and it's hard to make a living on the lack of hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more regular hours to the faithful workers who come in on time and go above and beyond

    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Become close to the other employees
    Bonus Check
    10% discount on HT brand items

    Cons

    Not enough people are scheduled during rush hour
    No one is getting a decent amount of hours
    No baggers, they just have cashiers running around trying to get closing duties done while trying to run a register at the same time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A. Schedule enough people to cover the front end
    B. Have at least 3 registers open at all times from 10:00am-9:00pm

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

    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.

    Annual raise

    Cons

    Can be alot of work at times.
    Can be understaffed at times to cut costs.
    May get called in if too understaffed, throwing a wrench in personal plans outside of work.

    I have been working at Harris Teeter full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Bonus Checks, the ability to move up within the company is there, yearly price-of-living raises for part-timers and yearly evaluation raises for full-timers.

    Cons

    Communication between corporate and store level is not as good as it should be. The technology (( registers and equipment )) is extremely outdated. Wanting rules to be enforced, unless the customer is unhappy then to heck with the rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade the Registers and software used. Communicate better to the stores. And stay consistent. Get rid of rules/guidelines that are constantly waived for reasons of 'customer satisfaction'. What is the point of them if they are always waived?

    Pros

    a job close to home

    Cons

    too many expectations for one person, they cut hours and employees hired are questionable at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    care about your workers as much as we (you) care about our customers. care about the aforementioned more than you care about shareholders and store managers bonuses.
