I love working at harmons. My co workers and manager are super nice. It’s a great job for people still in high school or college.

Good pay. 3 good coworkers.

They like to focus on the negative and they don't reward you for what you're doing right. The managers are difficult to talk to they seem like they don't care. I really wish they would treat their employees right. I wish I worked somewhere else I'm not going to stay for a very long time. I'm only here because they pay decent and you get paid on a weekly basis.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Management

Great food and mediocre service. Management is poor at best.

Management spends a lot of time standing around and talking. This leaves a poor example to the rest of the workers. I understand management has different duties, but their conversations are a bit excessive. Their training program for management consisted of me copying the answers out of the test key instead of doing my own work.

Descent pay, terrible management

Management often puts associates down. Belittles them and singles associates out. Pay is good, but it's not worth the hostile work environment that most management creates.

Pros

Discount, good pay

Cons

Most management is terrible

If your store managers are competent, it's great. If not, well, good luck.

Harmons is a well established family grocer in the state of Utah. When they on board you they go over their benefits package, which is quite good for full time employees. However, if you are classified as part time they will still work you 40+ hours a week and you will not be eligible for benefits. Even going to HR does not fix this problem. Overall the company has declined as the corporate makeup has shifted. If your store director is competent, then you'll do fine. If they aren't, I highly suggest you begin looking for work elsewhere.

Pros

401k, nice coworkers

Cons

short breaks, poor management, inconsistent expectations, favoritism.

People at the stores are great to work with

The managers at the stores are great to work with, and the culture that has been created is great. But changes over the course of the pandemic have been taken way too far. They are implementing policies that no other workplace is doing which is creating an unethical workplace.

Pros

Employee discounts

Cons

They make up rules as they go along

Basic retail job

Pros: coworkers are friendly. Management is helpful. Great food. Opportunities to transfer to another department. Cons: Low pay and little chance of advancement.

Unlivable wages

The pay is ridiculously low and no matter how hard you work, there are no merit raises whatsoever. I know a few people who have been with the company +40 years whose salary is $16 to $19 per hour with a cap of 37.5 hours per week - loyalty means nothing to this company! Harmon’s is a “good old boys club” - there are no women in upper management.

Pros

Health insurance benefits, 401k

Cons

Low pay, no holidays off, schedules are never consistent

Owners are great management was terrible

Not a good company to work for if you have a family or in school they don't care about employees only how to get more money in there pocket and better themselfs

Caring workplace

You get answers from upper management when you need and I always felt supported. However, my opinion is outdated since I haven't worked there in 6 years.

Pros

Employee appreciation lunches, helpful upper management

Cons

None

okay workplace, hard to move up

The work was stressful mostly because if you messed up on something even minor the managers were quick to get on you sometimes. I think the coworkers make or break the experience (as with most jobs). There was definitely favoritism/bias amongst the CSMs and some workers. If you are trying to get a certain position or help with anything you had TO WORK FOR IT. Especially in the way that you have to constantly remind/ask for what you need.

Mostly equal treatment and easy work

The work at harmons is really easy and seldom complicated. There is some things that can be complicated but overall it is very easy. The management is alright. There are things that I disagree with but aren’t there always?

Pros

Mostly flexible hours. Great pay. Good benefits. Friendly workers

Cons

Strict dress code. Stiff work environment

Bad pay and inconsistent management

Several department managers were just plain rude or bad. Some where good. Pay was bad. When I was ready to quit, they begged me to stay without any actual attempt to keep me there. I went to a job that payed more.The department (meat) was easy but could be mind numbingly slow. The store I worked at had extremely high turn over and very bad staffing issues. If you want to work here, try not to work the check stands. Everyone hated it there. Every other department was hit or miss. They raised pay after I left to be a bit higher but not very competitive still.

Pros

Flexible schedule, not very stressful, can have some really good managers, good breaks

Cons

Could have bad managers, staffing was always an issue, pay ins't competitive

Pharmacy World

The retail world of pharmaceuticals is always stressful, but the culture can really affect it. Depending on who you work with, it can be tough. Be prepared for scrutiny from your superiors. It's not uncommon for people to openly talk bad about you or others when they aren't around. The compounding world is very different, though :)

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Stressful work environment
Was this review helpful?

Not bad for a grocery store. But..

Still the same old problems. Bad management, bad benefits (maybe a week at most of pto a year, and you don't even get it until you've been there for a year), decent pay, but still not even close to livable unless you're a store manager or in the meat department. But don't worry, they recently raised their minimum to $10 an hour. Woo-hoo. 🙄

Pros

Generally pretty hard to lose your job, Sometimes decent co workers, And pay is a little better than other retail jobs.

Cons

Still bad wages, Poor policies for management and for choosing who to promote, Nepitism is a thing

Nice people to work with but no clear leadership

There is no leadership. No appreciation for going above and beyond. There is too much gossip by employees as well as management and way to much favoritism by management. They do not care about or take care of their employees.

Pros

Close to my home

Cons

Very poor pay
Was this review helpful?

Very disorganized. Rude Co-workers. No help.

Rude co-workers, specifically the ones who've been there a while. It's their way or the highway, don't like if you think outside the box at all.Its really disorganized in the back of the stores (warehouse). The store fronts are really gorgeous and well put together, its a complete 180° in the back. Dirty and unkempt.There isnt enough help (employees), management won't help at all. Expect to get a call on your day off asking if you could come in.

Cons

Short breaks, pay isnt very good for the amount of work

Good except for deli management

I really love the company, but management in deli is toxic. The managers are never around and we are constantly out of items needed to do our job. Culture is important and managers need to set the tone.

Pros

Good with schedule. Extra pay for Sundays and holidays

Cons

Management or lack there of. Toxic environment.

Horrible

Every department is always understaffed to save the company money. They do not care about their employees only about the customers even if the customer demands the world.

Pros

10% discount

Cons

Only 10% discount, under staffed, don't care about employees.

Good start job but management isn’t good

It’s a great job for when you’re in highschool or just getting out for a starter job. However the management is going downhill fast. Almost everyone is overworked and over scheduled. The managers often make it your job to get shifts covered after they scheduled you outside of your given availability, and you do way more work than what you get paid. Turn over rate is very high for the front end.

Pros

Good start pay, nice coworkers, fast paced

Cons

Late breaks, bad scheduling, spotty management
