Bad communication. Stay away from them!
When I first started, they didn't even have any induction or tell me any important things like how I will be paid, if I have to sign a timesheet, when is my shift (have to kept asking managers daily if I will be wanted the next day), no show around warehouse (I have to figure where the toilets are by myself), and didn't even inform me about compulsory working conditions like I have to work in a freezer (and the supervisor got upset when I didn't bring my jacket on the first day in order to work in there). Unclear and bad coordination between office and warehouse management and there are a serious flaws in their job description about the role. They generally didn't care who they hire and usually bulk-hire (mostly backpackers, student visas, and very young people) when they are desperate and most of them are friends or living in the same dome. They do this because they could get rid of them easily and tell them we don't have work for you after 2-3 weeks. So if you want to work here, be prepare to get send home after 2-3 hours or tell you that don't come anymore after a few shifts. Yet there are still work available for selective people who is friends with management. Some people who work here for long are quite rude indeed. I've heard people yelling across the freezers, scream at other people, and got upset with new staff for minor mistakes. If someone left a mess before they go home but bad luck you are the next person to work in the area then you will be blamed and accused that it was your mistake. Some supervisors will generally mistrust new staff. When they hire, they will - more...

Productive workplace
Harris Farm was my first 'proper' job. I really enjoyed it and I learnt a lot. My typical shift experiences included: interacting with customers about products, stacking shelves, rotation of in store stock, mark downs of products, discussing objectives with others in my section/team and getting to know products and their placement.

Not a bad job but very political
Be careful who you work for. Great as a part time worker but don't look for a job in management. Often understaffed and under supplied in the butchery with a lack of care by the owners shown. However, the produce is good quality and the workers are excellent people.

Difficult to communicate in a stressful workplace
Very difficult to obtain the job nevermind work there, wasn't too enjoyable due to the complete lack of communication while I was there. Good luck to anyone there

Diverse and friendly environment
Harris Farm is an extremely diverse workplace in all aspects, staff are very open, friendly and welcoming to new staff. Shifts range in pace, some days are fast-paced and busy however help is always available. As my first job, Harris Farm positively introduced me to a functional and positive working environment and would recommend it to those wanting an active and flexible work experience.

Better not to say
Don't work there. First they pay very good, then they would change your section. Next, decreasing your hours until the condition that you would like to leave because of low income

A 3.5 Stars out of 5
Harris Farm is Almost perfect in every area but I find the management is a very lacking point of the company, therefore, it can be a struggle to work but if you can look over that then you should enjoy your work there.

Not Recommended
The management at Harris Farm Markets Baulkham Hills was horrible. The management was lazy and a lot of the workload was pushed onto new workers. Very slow paced on weekdays, weekends were a lot more fast paced.

Fun workplace
Mostly at the cash register as it gets really busy. Great first time job. Other parts of the job included restocking shelves. Usually very busy but can be slow around closing time.

Relaxed and collaborative workplace with that runs at a fast pace.
Working at Harris Farm was an incredibly rewarding and eye-opening experience for me. I began working there as a young teenager whilst attending an all-girls boarding school in the same area. Balancing the strict schedule of boarding school life as well as monitoring my work times and shifts after school was challenging, however, it taught me a lot in regards to balancing responsibilities and creating an effective time table and schedule to work for me. I thoroughly enjoyed working at Harris Farm as it was a favourable job in which challenged me and allowed me to form many personal skills that I can carry with me into future workplaces.

Very friendly workplace and they were very flexible
I worked at Harris Farm in Bondi Junction for around a year and I loved it. The people were great but it was stressful when the shop became busy. Overall I love the company and the people.
Pros
Your shifts were very flexible
Cons
I do think the pay could be higher

Just bad management
Couldn’t keep there word offering hire positions. Offering a higher rate. Not paying the workers the same as promised. Managers weren’t on the same level of what they wanted. Confused the other workers.

It’s ok
Work in a team work sometime is unfair because the boss do like a take only her friend to do easy job get the other person to do only hard job. Change the roster all the time.

Fun and easy going workplace
- Easy to gain customer service skills
- Managers are accepting of everyone

- Very nice and clean workplace

- However HR management are disorganised

- May not have a choice of which department you're put into (eg. front end, grocery, perishables)
