    I have been working at Harris Teeter part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They worked great with my availability while I was attending college.
    Worked with great people.

    Cons

    I have been with Harris Teeter for 6 years now and my experience gets worse every year. Corporate continues to have high expectations that cannot be met when they are constantly cutting hours. I work in an extremely busy store and we never have enough people during peak hours to accomplish their ridiculous rules. They do not want more than 10 carts in the parking lot and we are always getting lectured on that but the problem is that we need everyone on a register and cannot send someone out to get carts. I think working their own stores would allow them to come up with reasonable exceptions.

    The hypocrisy displayed by the company disgusts me. They tell us to cut ours because they are losing money, yet they spend a lot of money on a comic book to boost employee morale. I understand they are scared that Publix will take them down but the actions they are taking to counteract it, is not really going to help and seem to have the employees, including myself, questioning what corporate is thinking.

    Another thing that has been said on other reviews is they will be quick to lecture you for screwing up but will not compliment you for doing a good job. In 6 years with the company, I've only been complimented a few times and that is no way to create a great work environment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have your employees' backs and don't always take the customers' side. It's time to finally start recognizing employees' work as opposed to waiting for something negative to talk to them. And once again, corporate needs to wake up or they will lose ALL their top employees to Publix when they come to NC!

    I worked at Harris Teeter part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is slightly higher than most of their competitors.
    Heavy emphasis on quality of work.
    Clean stores
    Company offers 401K and bi-anual profit sharing

    Cons

    Heavy anti-union sentiment from the upper management.
    Favoritism by management in certain stores

    I worked there for almost 6 years, before, during and after I graduated from college. After I graduated I made it very clear to the management that I wanted to be moved up to full time. For 2 years they lead me on to believe they would promote me as soon as a spot opened up. The whole time they would schedule me for around 40 hours a week until the last couple of weeks of every business quarter, when they would dramatically cut my hours in order to keep me below the 32 hour average to qualify me as a full time employee. After 2 years of this they moved the last full time employee out of the Grocery department leaving the manager and assistant manager as the only 2 full time, and hired 2 part time employees instead of moving me into a full time spot. I quit shortly after that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fewer better paid employees are just as productive as a bunch of underpaid employees.
