    I worked at Harris Teeter

    Pros

    Respectable pay, good opportunities for advancement. If you manage to get full time the benefits are excellent for a grocery store.

    Cons

    Every six months the management staff at a store completely changes. Not all at once, mind you, but there is so much flux with people moving from store to store that nothing remains constant for long.

    I have been working at Harris Teeter

    Pros

    The pay is fair, but the bonus is very nice to have. The atmosphere is always fast pace, and the work day goes by quickly.

    Cons

    Very high stress from upper management. Hours are continously cut, and expectations have become unrealistic. Upper management continues to get out of touch with stores by adding more standards, but taking away more hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to trim the upper unneeded positions, and put the money into properly staffing stores.

    Former Employee - Starbucks Clerk in Chapel Hill, NC

    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).

    Current Employee - Cashier/U-Scan Cashier in Charlotte, NC

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and scheduling, with the added benefit of online viewing of schedules, as well as the ability to request time off of work online and adjust availability as needed. It's a very easy process to work with management about concerns with scheduling, and I've never had a problem with communicating needs with management.

    Cons

    As is common with service-industry jobs, the work can get pretty bland and repetitive, and it's a lot of working on your feet, but you're not exactly performing manual labor, unless to a lesser extent you're out getting carts during a peak time of the work day.

  10. Excellent Benefits for full time employees

    Current Employee - Deli Clerk in Wilmington, NC
    Current Employee - Deli Clerk in Wilmington, NC

    I have been working at Harris Teeter full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits if you're a full time employee and the pay is ok depending on which department you work in.

    Cons

    I wasn't given proper training and reprimanded when mistakes were made due to the lack of training. It seems to be the norm and if you speak up about it you've pretty much sealed your fate. It's possible that this is only prevalent in the particular store and department I work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't trust that the store director and department managers are doing their jobs properly just because there aren't complaints made. Anonymous surveys or something along those lines should be in place. If hourly associates are "secretly shopped" managers should be held accountable for poor job performance as well. It's hard to rate the company itself when your not treated fairly by one or two managers.

    Pros

    the job is overnight so you don't have to deal with any customers at all, pretty cool if you ask me
