What our users are saying about working for Harris Teeter
Men were typically hired at a higher pay and given more opportunities and respect right off the bat.
One word: don’t.
Overall good company, room for growth and pay
Treated like crap. You have to get permission to go to the bathroom as if you’re a child. If you don’t properly do this, it’s the end of the world! I got in trouble for going to the bathroom because you “can I say no to a customer” when it’s not like there was even one infront of me to help! They don’t wanna give you a break , so your lucky if you get one at the Virginia Beach oceanfront one. You have to get permission and have them close your line just to get a sip of water every time you’re thirsty, which can b a lot since you cannot keep a drink at your register. And they rarely properly would clean the employee bathroom. Adequate lockers/locker rooms are not provided. The pay was poor especially in comparison to other grocery stores. And worst of all, I have very bad knee pain every single day from working here.
401 k personal perks employee discounts
No loyalty to employees. Customers treat staff horrible and management does nothing about it.
Everyone here is so friendly and says hi to me daily. They help you out when needed also, for example my car battery died so I had it jumped to get to work. A few coworkers made sure that my car started at the end of my shift so I could get home.
Harris Teeter is certainly a well-known company and while it has its incentives, there could be more emphasis on mentorship for women and men. There are a lot of women who work in my store so I couldn't say that they don't hire enough, but perhaps if they provided more care and concern for employee wellbeing besides the bottom line they might see people stick with the program longer to potentially work their way up. The constant push for no one to get overtime or to limit their hours also makes it hard for people like myself a mom trying to make extra money consider not working at all. I already accommodate my own schedule in order to work certain shifts as not to pay for childcare.
Male employees constantly making sexual and gross comments. Very unprofessional management. Crappy maternity leave, very little vacation or sick days
Harris Teeter takes quite a long time to address concerns brought up by employees, but it will eventually resolve issues. Pay is not great to start but if you fight for it eventually you can get a decent wage. They have a fair split between male and female management numbers and many corporate positions seem to be female led. I wouldnt say its a beacon of feminine achievement and they dont go out of their way to highlight the achievements of women specifically, but I will say they are definitely an equal opportunity employer. No matter your age, gender, sex, orientation, religion, or disability, you always have the room to improve at this store so long as you show them you have the abilities they seek. I am quite happy working here and satisfied that, instead of trying to use feminism as a stunt and hiring as many women as publicly as possible to get recognition for being female friendly, they instead just adopt female friendly actions. Most employees who work with me are satisfied with the way stores are run and very very rarely do I hear sexist phrases or tales of sexism in my work place. Misogyny is not in place at Harris Teeter.
It is pretty much a boys club. Lip service is paid to ensuring equal opportunity, but nothing really ever comes of it. There is a very high turnover rate as well.
While women are encouraged to grow with the company, at its core this is a 'ole boys club'
I'm overall very satisfied with gender equality in my company. Harris Teeter does a great job of implementing policies that ensure equality and diversity.
You have to fight to get time off for doctors appointments, let alone anything personal. They have you there at all hours of the day and night. Your work is 3x as scrutinized if you're a woman, vs. your male peers. It's a culture off bullying, harassment and intimidation. Management often drinks on the job and HR does not address any employee complaints whatsoever, regardless of whom they originate from. Worst place I have ever worked.
They understaff and then blame the employees when customers are unhappy. Everything is about making the customer happy, even if what makes them happy is unreasonable. It is a man's world in the higher management levels. My sexual harassment complaint was never filed but I was written up because a male manager didn't get his chi tea when he wanted it.
They claim female friendly but don't buy it. Their upper management is all white males. Claims of sexual harassment lead to discipline or removal of the woman reporting it while the man will get off entirely.
