    I worked at Harris Teeter full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very profitable company and cares about safety.

    Cons

    I worked for Harris Teeter for over 9 years. I started as a department leader and finished my career as a salaried co-manager. Over the course of 9 years I think I can safely say that the company has lost touch with its associates and is now more concerned with the bottom line. Don't get me wrong, I understand the point of every business is to make money, however to do it with an utter and complete lack of concern for your staff is a whole other story. If you're salaried be prepared to work 60 hour work weeks on a regular basis. Be prepared to have your job threatened on a regular basis. I know what you're thinking....This guy was fired. Well I wasn't. I achieved high marks on all my evaluations and was highly thought of. I was just tired of not seeing my family, that's why I left.

    Advice to Management

    You're in the people business. ....that being said take care of your people.

    Pros

    Good Work environment
    Profit sharing bonuses twice a year

    Cons

    constant switching of management, making it hard to have one type of leadership style for staff

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep managers in once place for longer periods of time- It can lead to a lot of uncertainty when they keep moving around
