    Pros

    Competitive company with their competition, a lot of opportunities to move up in the company if desired. Internal management training openings every four months.

    Cons

    You hear a lot about a "customer first" mentality that doesn't get transferred to all aspects of the job. Labor hours slashed and still expected to maintain minimum customer wait times with just a few people scheduled. Management gets on you about going over scheduled hours but it's impossible to get tasks done on time being so short staffed. Corporate spends more time and money than it needs to making mandatory monthly training videos. Resources would be better spent making sure that the stores are adequately staffed and scheduled.


  2. I have learned grey customer service skills. Flexible hours. Demanding work.

    Pros

    You can move up the ladder very quickly at Harris Teeter.

    Cons

    People that come in from the outside make vastly more per hour than people who move up within the company. Roughly ~$6/hr more.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people to a higher base rate of pay to ensure that people don't take their experience elsewhere.

    Pros

    The pay is reasonable for what I do. Most direct store management is friendly to you (albeit this may not apply to all stores). Hours are flexible and they work around your availability.

    Cons

    Lots of drama. Harris Teeter (and I'm sure many other stores as well) creates an environment in which teenagers have power over other teenagers and sometimes adults.

    Advice to Management

    You guys do a pretty good job. I wish you wouldn't be so laid back about employees who are regularly late however.
