    I worked at Harmons part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The small 10% discount possibly.

    Cons

    Never seen such high turnover in a job. Little training, manager rarely there, low pay, no raise in one year.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees.

    Current Employee - Dairy Clerk 
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Harmons full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They are very understanding and more empathetic than most employers. It is still a grocery store but the hours are flexible. There is no pressure to finish everything all the time if you can't.

    Cons

    It's still retail which means there's always a lot of work and stress from normal things. They dont generally give overtime and the insurance isn't that good. Its very expensive for a family.

    Former Employee - Barista in Saint George, UT
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Harmons part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good for a barista (I started at $15 with no prior experience). Colleagues (not management) were very friendly. The 10% discount you get as an employee is a pretty laughable pro, but it would save a couple of dollars here and there.

    Cons

    I began working as a barista because I genuinely wanted to learn about coffee, but unfortunately I received next to zero instruction on what I was supposed to be doing. I felt embarrassed handing drinks to customers, knowing they were far from what should be expected. I went home for the first couple of weeks working there and watched any youtube videos I could find on how to properly pull shots, steam milk, etc. in hopes...

    Advice to Management

    Staff more baristas so they don't go crazy and quit after a couple of months.

    Pros

    Great people, you are your own boss but at the same time have help when needed by the grocery manager

    Cons

    Lost of work, you have to hit your numbers and watch your orders and shrink.

    I worked at Harmons full-time

    Pros

    The insurance and pay are pretty decent, definitely higher than other grocery stores.

    Cons

    I have a lot of complaints about this place. #1 being that they will NOT treat you like a human being. You are simply a number in their computer. Feeling sick? Too bad. Needing help? Too bad. They will use everything against you too if you ever have a complaint. I had my tattoos discriminated against BY THE STORE DIRECTOR HIMSELF. My coworkers were talking about sex rather explicitly, which made me very uncomfortable...

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings. You constantly compare yourselves to smiths, but when I worked at smiths I was definitely taken more seriously as a decent human being. When I was clearly sick, they let me go home. When I needed help, they gave it to me.

      Pros

      The best thing I can say is benefits

      Cons

      Its retail, no ladder up, you have to be a terrible person to move up

      Don't hire managers who have no compassion

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Harmons full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Develop great skills Actually good food that I cared about selling Some great coworkers A fair amount of autonomy (as a cheesemonger) Somewhat flexible

      Cons

      Working in the deli is stressful!! I would not recommend being a sales associate back there Customers can be rude and don't view you as a human being (in any position) Sometimes you don't get a break until 6 or 7 hours into your shift Not flexible when it comes to being sick... I hated seeing people come in sick just because they had to

      Advice to Management

      I worked part time in the cheese island where I LOVED it. Every day was interesting, and there was lots to do, but we got to be decisive about what was most important, and it was great to learn all of the cheeses and recommend them to customers. I wish I could've stayed in cheese for a long time but I moved away. But the delicatessen, where I also worked part time, was not for me. Shifts went by fast, but I always felt...
