    require your new management hires to take a course in Management. Its amazing how many altercations could be prevented with just a bit of knowledge in managing people!

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Provided a substantially higher level of customer service toits customer base in the DC/VA area. High quality and high standard of product and goods consistently maintained.

    Cons

    Often times, the position of the employee was diminished in favor of customer service and in keeping with a "customer is always right" doctrine. Some middle levels and upper levels of management were consistently shirking and outright breaking rules and standsrds regarding treatment of hourly employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Im general, wheb standards are set, it should be acknowledged as to whether these standards are universal or differ according to position. Employee bullying and defamation should not be tolerated.

    Current Employee - Cashier/U-Scan Cashier in Charlotte, NC (US)

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and scheduling, with the added benefit of online viewing of schedules, as well as the ability to request time off of work online and adjust availability as needed. It's a very easy process to work with management about concerns with scheduling, and I've never had a problem with communicating needs with management.

    Cons

    As is common with service-industry jobs, the work can get pretty bland and repetitive, and it's a lot of working on your feet, but you're not exactly performing manual labor, unless to a lesser extent you're out getting carts during a peak time of the work day.

    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good department managers, very flexible. dairy and overnight shifts went much faster than cashier, with less supervision. good pay, start at 9.25, and biannual bonus checks based on how often you work

    Cons

    poor store managers for the most part. cashiers constantly being micro managed by the 'up front' staff. good group of high schoolers at my store though

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train store managers better in HR skills. they need to put the employee first, not the costumer.
