    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you have a decent knowledge of food you will enjoy sharing ideas with others and showing them new products.

    Cons

    Depending on the department you work in the work load can be quite heavy. Working in the deli/fresh foods department has been a nightmare. Corporate has so many restrictions on the way things are done, and our new managers actually watch video to make sure you are following all procedures and protocols and if you aren't they write you up. For the amount of work that we have to do we do not have nearly enough people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even the workload out among your employees. Far too many responsibilities fall on the closers of the deli and we end up staying late quite often. Also look into how much work your employees do for the amount they are paid. Half of our deli is contemplating quitting because of the exorbitant amount of work and the sad wage we are paid.

    Job growth opportunities
    Benefits
    flexible hours
    Team work

    Cons

    There are very few cons that I can think of.
    Management was very receptive to employee concerns and seemed willing to make adjustments for team members to be successful and satisfied in their roles.

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

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck, and the starting pay (at least for me) is technically above minimum wage. If it had been minimum wage, though, my weekly paychecks wouldn't have been appreciably different.

    Cons

    Horribly inconsistent management, immoral (and borderline illegal) scheduling practices, no overtime or holiday pay, and no attempts by management to treat their employees with any sort of respect.

    Pros

    It's easy to get promoted and get raises if you do what you're supposed to do and not mess around. Be reliable and don't argue with customers and you won't have any problems. You get bonus check which I loved.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great but like I said, don't mess around and you can have opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking advantage of how hard your employees work. Pay needs to be better for people who deserve it.
