    Advice to Management

    -While department managers are generally helpful, store management seems too corporate-minded. Sometimes they will complain about incidents that happen at other stores as though they happened at ours. We have no control over what happens at others Harris Teeters!!
    -Schedule an adequate number of baggers, especially when closing. Between two baggers, they have to sweep the floor, clean the bathrooms, take out trash and recycle bins, clean the break room, vacuum, and clear all carts from the parking lot at the end of the night.
    -If the company has to make cuts in hours, staffing , and wages, please communicate to employees the reasoning behind those cuts, especially when business does not to be slowing
    down. Otherwise, it just seems like the company is being cheap and/or greedy.
    -Add conveyor belts to the beginning of checkout lines like any other store. It would not hurt customers to takes their items out of the cart, and place them on it. It would make the checkout process much easier and faster for the cashier.
    -CEO should visit and work in stores to and see how unrealistic some of their expectations are. Go on Undercover Boss or something like that.
