I worked at Harris Teeter full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Plenty of opportunity's to advance. growing company with plans on expanding. Decent Pay. They try to bring in top talent to run the stores and the emphasis on customer service is excellent.

Cons

Not enough help to keep up the expected standards. salaried members of management make up the slack. long hours. making for a terrible work life balance. not recommended if you enjoy spending time with your family.

Advice to Management

work more on properly staffing the stores, don't wait till there is no one to do the job then scramble to fill spots.

Other Employee Reviews for Harris Teeter

  1. "Typical cashier job, very boring"

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Managers were nice, developed friendships with a few employees
    Store provided food for employees working on Christmas Eve

    Cons

    Lines get really long so you are basically checking items out non stop for your entire shift. You get a 15 minute break if you work longer than 4 hours and a 30 minute break if you work longer then either 7 or 8 hours. Customers get very angry about their groceries. There is a bagger assigned for the day but spends little to no time bagging, mostly cleans and attends to the parking lot. The cashier is responsible for bagging and it slows down the process of checking the customer out. Schedules were weird and it was hard to have a personal life around your weird work schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Use baggers for BAGGING


  2. "Pay not worth the effort you put in no matter how long you've worked there nor how, "great" you really are."

    I have been working at Harris Teeter full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lasting friendships from store to store, bonus checks twice a year, annual raise, associate recognition via quarterly employee of the month and dinners/lunches/breakfasts around the holidays at some stores. Overall good company as a whole to work for, just have to know how to handle customers the way the company wants you to handle them.

    Cons

    Asking for a raise is like asking for the winning lottery ticket unless it's your annual raise, in which you're lucky to even get regardless. You can be scheduled whenever depending on the department head, your schedule is either really great or all over the place, never guaranteed any set hours, even if full time you're lucky to get the full 40-hour week. Must work some holidays, so if you have to work and your family is out of town, just count on not celebrating unless you can work out something with the department head. Paying for uniforms that don't even last for very long because they wear out or lose buttons very quickly.
