    Former Employee - Fresh Foods Chef in Raleigh, NC

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

    Pros

    Some associates are great to work for
    Wages get paid on time
    A wage increase of 25 cents per hour if you work really hard
    A paltry bonus paid every six months
    A great staff room with uncomfortable chairs , no A/C and a broken tv

    Cons

    Nepotism
    Favouritism and the good ol boy network
    Managers blow smoke up your butt
    The training videos are so pathetic written for people with the attention span of a dyslexic gnat
    You can really go places and be where you want to be ....if you're prepared to lower your standards and really kiss butt
    All the adverts for jobs insist you must have culinary skills and degrees ....yeah right....I feel I wasted my time and career in culinary
    This job enthused me to return to school , learn new skills and change my career
    If you love to be undervalued and appreciated then this is the place for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the staff you have , harness their skills and push them to improve themselves and the company . Stop trying to crawl to the corporate ladder . If you do right by your staff your staff will do right for you. Pay people a decent wage .

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My specific dept worked wonderfully together. We each had our position and our roll and we jived together.

    Cons

    Upper management was constantly stopping us and telling us to do one thing or another that went against rules and parameters set in place for our dept. It was like they had no clue how to run each dept but they wanted to try anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make store management work in each dept so they can learn how it actually works in practice versus just on paper.

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

    Pros

    I really can't think of anything to put here, other than I enjoyed most of my coworkers!

    Cons

    Where do I begin. Well first of all, the pay is crap! I worked there for two years and went from making $7.25 an hour to making $8.05 an hour. This company is making so much money and yet they can't afford to pay their workers a decent wage. I went to Whole Foods after HT and the lowest they will pay anyone is $11 an hour, including baggers and dishwashers.

    The management was also organized very poorly and was made up of idiots. It was pretty demoralizing working for people that would make fifth graders look smart. I'm sure this isn't the case at every store, but it certainly was at the three I worked at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees much more and try promoting competent people instead of the bros and the attractive women.

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

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the people I really enjoy seeing the regulars come back week after week. I also enjoy helping customers it makes me feel good seeing them walk away with a simile knowing that I just served them excellent customer service.

    Cons

    The only bad thing about Harris Teeter is the pay as a customer service clerk there are alot of duties to perform and I don't believe that making $8.20 is enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that management should understand how much that we actually work and appreciate it a little bit more. I can tell that the managers that were former customer service managers appreciate us clerks more than a manager that has came from a different position. I also believe to be a manager, that they should be able to perform almost every single function in the store, but most of the time managers can't hardly do anything on the front end except for the basics.
