    Pros

    Given the opportunity to gain experience while on the job and in due time move up in the company

    Cons

    On some days there is as many as five people in one work area when there should at least be more that way more jobs can be done within time instead of put off and dumped on an individual

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to work instead of relying on a skeleton crew to get the job the more employee's the better

    Pros

    Easy work. Laid back atmosphere. Paid holidays you can take at any time, if you're full time.

    Cons

    .25 cent yearly raises. Really? Pay caps they pick and choose when to put in place. The most vacation you can acquire is 3 weeks....and that's after 10 years of employment. More and more rules corporate sends down as if they have no idea how a grocery store works. Policies they pick and choose to make you follow and unfollow when it's in corporates favor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some common sense.

    I have been working at Ingles Markets full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, and very quick promotions if your looking for them. Most Management is friendly and equal to all employees. Pay is ok when you get full time positions and hours are consist. Time off is very easy to obtain provided a notice is given.

    Cons

    No discounts, Higher management (District Managers) are very uptight. Different stores get special treatment. lower stores who have lower sales get treated worse. District 7 needs serious changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set work standards for your stores equally based off company policies, and not based of sales or social status with that store. You speak of Customer Service and "its not what you serve, its who you serve" well you don't serve no customers. Its the store level employees who do this. Show them Respect. District 7 needs serious change.

    Pros

    Store and stockroom is clean,down to earth people.

    Cons

    Overnight stock and reordering schedule wasn't a pleasant one but i am not someone who handles third-shift very well.
    Pay could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest paying better and you will get less of a revolving door of employees on overnight stock crews.

    I have been working at Ingles Markets part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Scheduling has changed recently and hours are difficult for part time.

    Cons

    Very long days on weekends and very short days during the week. Can not manage personal life with hours scheduled

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees should have more of a voice in scheduling. It is not flexible under the recent changes. Employees are leaving because of poor scheduling and attitude of the manager and CSMs need improvement. Maybe more customer service training.
