    Pros

    "Regular employees" have a familial bond because of all of the mistreatment we have to go through.

    Cons

    No recognition for all the hard work we do, management is lackluster, and not enough pay for the stress that we deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to why people leave. Listen to our concerns. And please stop entitling these customers to do whatever they want and stop talking to associates in a foul manner.

  6. "good place to work"

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

    Pros

    most managers are friendly and reasonable. coworkers are easy to get along with. everyone does their job and for full time there are benefits to take advantage of just like with any other full time position. The free items every month and discount available are awesome

    Cons

    the scheduling for holidays could be improved. They schedule with the hours they are given, and do their best, but the company itself doesnt seem to provide enough hours for the scheduling manager to work with.

    Advice to Management

    everyone in upper management should be trained to do the jobs of everyone enough to the point where if help is needed in a certain area they are able to help. One of the main reasons i loved this place in the first place was that the managers hop in and help whenever they can and they are out doing all they can to make everything run smoothly. there are a few managers past and present that couldn't help because they had no idea how to do something as simple as printing someones evic offers for the weekend.

    Pros

    Clean and well organized place to work

    Cons

    Not very consistent with scheduling hours

    Advice to Management

    Keep to a consistent schedule so that employees work the same amount of hours each week. Also, don't schedule someone to come in to work for only 2 or 3 hours. It is not worth the drive.

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1.Somewhat flexible hours
    2.Great place to develop speaking/problem solving skills
    3. always busy / fast paced
    4. 401K / Benefits for part time workers
    5. Work with motivated individuals

    Cons

    1. Turnover rate is pretty high, even in management positions
    2. Abysmal Pay raise, if ever provided
    3. You'll also work with some pretty lazy / awful people
    4. Advancement is limited and often unrewarded
    5. Work hours can be changed with little advanced notice

    For a first time job to make your own paycheck, it's not a bad job. You stay busy and learn a multitudes of skills (Talking to customers, resolving issues, managing others, etc.) which can be useful later on in life. That being said it's retail and you're going to encounter some pretty awful people and deal with some awful stuff, but that's just part of the job and not every day is going to be awful, but just know you'll have those days every once in a while.

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

    Pros

    -Most staff and customers are nice.
    -It's a good starter job, and they give you annual raises.
    -You get bonuses, no matter what job you have.
    -There's room for advancement within the company.

    Cons

    -Constant shuffling around of management by corporate. It's rare to have a manager, whether a store manager or an assistant customer service manager to stay at a store for more than a year.
    -Most of the teenage/early 20-something employees that are hired seem to care more about socializing with their co-workers instead of actually working or talking to the customers, and they never get in trouble for it.
    -Products that come in the produce department are frequently bad on arrival.
    -Not enough people are staffed in the stores, ever.
    -Both upper and lower management play favorites.
    -Scheduling isn't consistent. Also "on-call" shifts shouldn't be a thing.
    -Cash registers are really old, and constantly break down. Same with self-checkout. Both systems are obviously long overdue for replacing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on friendly customer service, and don't play favorites. Also, hire more people.
