    I worked at Harmons full-time

    Pros

    Harmons always picks the best people for their staff. It was wonderful working with all of my co-workers and store associates in the time that I worked for Harmons.

    Cons

    if you do not work there for six years or longer you do not get your full 401K that they put into the account for you. Only all of what you put in and some of what they put in.

    I worked at Harmons part-time

    Pros

    great employee focus for the opportunity to grow within the positions and other spots in the company as well as other jobs

    Cons

    asides from the day to day jobs in the actual store itself, there isn't much room to grow beyond the store's unit itself. It seemed as though they tried to keep those employees in the store where they were.

    Advice to Management

    management is always super busy, and doesn't seem to have the time to see the initiative and good work that employees are doing. that's why dept managers are relied upon.

    I worked at Harmons full-time

    Pros

    Lots of great products to buy

    Cons

    Bad management. Not very good open door policy. Wages were all over the place. Trust to keep people out that want to shop.

    Advice to Management

    Think before you put someone in managers position.

    I have been working at Harmons full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Harmons has given me the opportunity to gain valuable skills in customer service, communication, in depth product knowledge on a variety of food items. I have been taken care of by my upper management who go out of their way to show their appreciation for my hard work. Great atmosphere, where it is a joy to come to work, as opposed to other places of employment in my past.

    Cons

    The main downside, which is expected being a grocery store is the hours and schedule vary. Majority of holidays are spent working in the store. Only offically closed one day a year.

    Advice to Management

    If you have the right people in the right positions there is no need to micro manage. Let them grow and develop on their own. They will thank you for it later.

    Pros

    Wages on the upper end for retail at some stores and in some departments.
    HIGHER WAGES STILL NOT WORK WORKING HERE

    Cons

    As far as most of there store go the saying "Lip Stick on a pig comes to mind"
    There stores look nice, but at times it is like walking into a walmart.
    No staff , long lines trying to check out, a lot of items out of stock, and expired product on the shelf.
    This is because they nickel and dime for labor. They have created labor intensive departments but do not account for this with labor budgets it is always cut cut cut.
    Managers are inept and should not be managing a store. NEPOTISM is rampant.
    They make act like they care but they really don't. Big disconnect between people department and what is really happening at store level.

    Advice to Management

    Get a Clue! You may be expanding but a what cost. Jake would roll over in his grave if he knew what type of employer you have become. SHAME ON YOU!
