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

    Pros

    Me working 3rd shift really worked out great with my family. I was able to finish on time and get home and pick-up my Niece and take her to her job.

    Cons

    The only con is the nights that the floors were cleaned and waxed. I could not do my job and when they finished I would to try to get all the displays back where they came from in the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starting back at the Distribution Center if workers could take the time to palletize the grocerys as to how they are used in the store. That would save an 1.5 - 2 hours restacking the grocerys in the receiving dept. for the right aisle to restock.

    Pros

    The People
    The Environment
    Great Way to meet new people

    Cons

    As a bagger, people will tend to take advantage of you, and require you to do things they know they can do themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you know you can do something yourself without taking up too much time then do it, and not waste nobody else's.

    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The managers are always great, the customers are awesome because they really value our goal at having the best customer service therefore they appreciate it and they show you. They pay above minimum wage, and there are 2 bonuses a year regardless of the economy. Even when it was dropping in 2008, the associates still got their checks because the people at corporate forfeited theirs. (The company cares!) Also, this was my first real job besides babysitting and I definitely have learned a lot.

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel like I'm doing more work than I'm getting paid for but isn't that the case almost everywhere?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making such a big deal whether or not my sweater has the HT logo on it. It looks exactly the same as the one you sell, and unless you want to pay for my uniform, I am not going to buy it because I do not believe the customer cares as long as I have my name tag in obvious view.

    Great first Job experience

    Former Employee - Cashier
    Former Employee - Cashier

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time

    Pros

    At the time I was really bothered by the amount of pressure put on me on my first day. But I learned a lot of skills that I have been able to transfer into other fields. Break time and lunch breaks were awesome bc it was a grocery store so it was always stocked with my fav snacks although I had to pay for them (btw we ddnt get discounts)

    Cons

    Not enough hours when I was working there. The only odd experience I had once was I had to push a woman's grocery cart all the way to her car which she decided to park at the very top of the hill. I'm barely 5'2 and had to jump up and down to grab the safety vest before I left out with the whole store watching and laughing bc the vest were up so high. No one helped me, took me a minute to get it down. The woman oddly tried to tip me $.50 of to which I politely declined. I made more than that an hr.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take it a little easier on the newbies!!!

    Pros

    The work environment is clean and the people are friendly. The employee discount is nice as well.

    Cons

    Pay is not a lot. Expect just over minimum wage especially if you are only part-time. Sometimes it is hard to keep even above 20 hours per week.

    Pros

    Nothing Really....Wait! 6 month bonuses a few hundred bucks.

    Cons

    Low Pay...Only Part-Time 28 hrs max.....Full timers treated much better! Allowed to take breaks without getting the "stink eye".Not hiring full time....Regardless of how hard you work. North Carolina companies are notoriously brutal, mean, spirited and anti-union. Harris Teeter examplifies this all the way!! Don't shop here They suck!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit being such butt kissing toadies...you're pitiful...Some people work hard!! Recognize that!
