    Pros

    I worked in a new store recently opened. Harris Teeter has an excellent training process and a commitment to customer service.
    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.

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good company overall with great benefits for full time. Part time benefits after 60-90 days but only dental and vision which doesn't work for someone with children or seeking more.

    Cons

    Benefits are not great for part time, once hired, you see how disorganized they really are (depending on your store). Not enough employees therefore managers are overworked and stressed constantly. Management says there is room to move up but they know it won't happen, very disappointment for someone looking to grow with company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give false hope in interviews and if someone tells you the department or area they are better in, placing them elsewhere may not ever be the right fit. Maybe be ok to keep looking for suitable candidates. Offer more advancement to employees within that show interest in moving up

    Pros

    Great bonus potential for ALL employees, great vacation/personal hour scale, fast paced and every day is interesting. Customer base is primarily kind.

    Cons

    Mico Management, 'On Call' procedures odd, open MOST holidays and will not pay time and half for working, non regulars are rude and misinformed, management concerned over making labor/bonus than building great staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage with integrity. Build your teams, grow their experiences and you will have a well oiled machine that makes numbers. Also, give people a chance to progress and stop lying to them about possibilities that won't happen.

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time (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.
