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

    Pros

    decent pay and benefits,
    VERY flexible hours,
    Bonus Checks twice a year.

    Cons

    total hours in departments are kept low, but superior service is demanded over competing companies. hard to do when there are not enough people sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more people on the front end. stop expecting Homeshop to work harder than a cashier at the same pay. Its a very hectic position.

    Pros

    The people are generally friendly
    You definitely have a lot of work
    I was fortunate to have a great assistant manager

    Cons

    You don't have much say in what work you do
    They almost always ask you to stay overtime
    They pay could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more communication between the laborers and Corporate. I have heard a lot of really good ideas on how to improve things, but they never get anywhere because of this wall.

    I worked at Harris Teeter

    Pros

    Respectable pay, good opportunities for advancement. If you manage to get full time the benefits are excellent for a grocery store.

    Cons

    Every six months the management staff at a store completely changes. Not all at once, mind you, but there is so much flux with people moving from store to store that nothing remains constant for long.

    I worked at Harris Teeter full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job was exactly as described, very flexible scheduling and the culture was quite decent. As I was not looking for long term employment, not having employment advancement opportunities did not bother me. Overall a good company.

    Cons

    Not much time given during the work hours for breaks, the work is very menial and unfulfilling and the pay is relatively low. However, for me this was all expected.

    Pros

    The pay is good and is a good environment

    Cons

    If you're a bagger there more than likely only 2 or 1 there a day, so if you work as one you will do all the work trash , carts and cleaning the bathroom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us a bonus and raise pay rate.

    Pros

    Great company, Really cares about their customers, Discounts on groceries, Advancement through the company is easy if you work hard enough.

    Cons

    GOSSIP. people talk to make themselves look so much better then they are, Everyone just throws each other under the bus so that they look better constantly, its hard to keep people because of this and upper management does nothing to change it. They hire whoever and at least my store they do not call prior employers so people lie to get hired a lot and have zero experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees as much as you care about customers

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Modern and clean stores.

    Cons

    Asked to work 12 hour shifts and only once a week. I've been told I can't leave until all the work is done, as if the manager will stand at the door and physically prevent me from leaving hours after the time I'm scheduled to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It trickles from the top down. Dave, the DM for store 409 (as of Feb. 2015) said we cannot go home until everything is stocked because of an incoming snow storm. It is true we are supposed to get snow but it will be over 40 degrees tomorrow and customers won't be knocking down the door to buy products. This reasoning is for them not to miss a sale of something that didn't get stocked. Just another example of the guys at the top walking away with a few hundred thousand more and the guys at the bottom
     are making their $9 an hour. I've also been scheduled 2 days a week when my availability is every day. I asked them why this is and they said it's because I don't come in on days that I'm not scheduled when they need help. How bass akwards is this?
