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

    Pros

    Friendly customers usually because of being an upscale establishment. Better pay as well.

    Cons

    Some of the management in some of the stores don't care about the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees on the bottom of the totem pole, they see and know what you don't.

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

    Pros

    Managers were fairly understanding and very willing to work with you (usually). Pay was pretty good for a first retail position. Profit-sharing bonus was a huge plus.

    Cons

    Sometimes people could be very childish; occasionally feel lack of respect. A lot of the time, your are just working with a bunch of high school kids who couldn't care less

    Cannot advance if you are not available to work seven days a week, management is always changing, and not always for the better,

    Allow those who want to set apart ONE day that they categorically will not work to be full time or advance!

    Pros

    great overall company to work for. There are many opportunities to learn other departments and move up in the company.

    Kroger has taken over and many changes are happening. Hours are being cut all the time making it impossible to run a successful department with great employee moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always consider your employees and their opinions.

    Pros

    -Most small workers and cashiers are all very nice
    -You're able to state your opinion to the management and talk with them
    -Benefits are good

    Cons

    -You're expected to be able to do everything if you work in a specific department, even if it's not the job you applied for or something you even know how to do
    -Management likes to disappear at most stores, not willing to help if you have a crowd of customers
    -If something goes wrong, blame is thrown on anyone except the one who is actually at fault,. which normally leads to said blamed person being terminated
    -Although you can state your opinion, nothing is ever done about something that may be wrong in the department unless its technology wise
    -the benefits are not worth the stress and exhaustion that you're going to be put through

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each store should be given more hours to be able to hire more people to help all over the store to be able to handle the growth of sales that you are loving. Also make sure the managers don't run every time there is a crowd of customers.
