  2. "Harris teeter Salad bar Clerk"

    I have been working at Harris Teeter full-time

    Pros

    There's good people in the company and they have decent benefits as well. As long as you do your job , they don't have any problems .

    Cons

    If you don't do your job according to how they want it, they become a little passive aggressive with how they come at you to "fix the issue" in their eyes. They have a hard time keeping managers in general, and even more trouble keeping regular employees. This is only because (from what i can tell) if something goes wrong in the slightest way, all fingers point at you . However this can vary between stores, that's just how things go at mine.

    Advice to Management

    I honesty don't know how things could be made better. I just know that things could be made better. One suggestion i would make is to hire more people though..

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

    Pros

    gained good customer service experience

    Cons

    will spread hours evenly between cashiers, but they often have a surplus so you won't work very many hours

    Advice to Management

    only hire enough people, it's unfair to those who needs these jobs to only be working 5 hours once or twice a week, if they have full availability

    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful customers and management works with you regarding your schedule.

    Cons

    Low pay. Too many "bosses". Young and inexperienced Customer Service Clerks can be terribly rude (some are on power-trips) and make poor decisions without thinking through consequences. Horrible lack of leadership on most levels. Next-to-no communication from management unless you do something wrong. No on-going training.

    Advice to Management

    L E A D E R S H I P training is desperately needed for ALL positions from Clerks to Store Managers. Stop trying to "manage" people - you need to LEAD them.

    Pros

    - very nice people, the coworkers are friendly as well as the customers. I rarely had any bad customer experiences
    - pay very well especially for high / college students
    - overall it was a good first job for me

    Cons

    - you are basically on your own. You do get some training in the beginning, but after that you basically have to learn most things by yourself or ask your coworkers around you
    - where I work there wasn't a lot of cashiers. So when we got busy, we got really busy. I worked overtime many times because there were so much customers in line but such little staff.
