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

    Pros

    Students who were good workers were encouraged by the managers to pursue their career endeavors. Since I was interested in the healthcare industry, shortly after my start of working there (about 3 months) I was able to start working in the pharmacy. It was nice to know that they cared enough about my future to so promptly transfer me form my cashier position.

    Cons

    The demographic of people that your branch serves will play a huge part in the responsibilities that you have. Working at a nicer location means that you end up doing a lot more and work in a much more stiff environment for the same pay, which is a downer. And although the hourly pay was competitive when I first started working, it did not stay that way. They also use you being a student as an excuse to give you poor hours, which sucks if you're in dire need of a good pay check.

    Pros

    Hours are extremely flexible for part-time. This is great for students to balance school-work-life schedule.

    Cons

    We have to give special treatment to customers. This spoils them and can complain if things don't go their way. Employees may do extra work they are not trained to do.

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

    Pros

    Good management makes you feel appreciated. There is a teamwork environment. I got raises every six months in the three years I worked there.

    Cons

    May be more now that Kroger owns it. While I worked there I really couldn't complain. As a stock clerk I had the most labor intensive job and ended up wearing out my back and knees, but it's the job I signed up for so take that as it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Grocery business is monotonous so make it fun and interesting. Work more on cross training employees, it will pay off in end.

    Pros

    The people are generally friendly
    You definitely have a lot of work
    I was fortunate to have a great assistant manager

    Cons

    You don't have much say in what work you do
    They almost always ask you to stay overtime
    They pay could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more communication between the laborers and Corporate. I have heard a lot of really good ideas on how to improve things, but they never get anywhere because of this wall.

    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.
