    My experience is that hard work will get you noticed at the store level, however it takes real people skills to advance.

    I have been working at H E B full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The culture is a great one, and there is recognition for achievements. The flexibility with scheduling is key to many partners' success, as many stores are open the majority of the day. The opportunity to make an impact in communities, and to be involved with a company with high moral standards is also very important in today's society.

    Cons

    Cons would include low pay and compensation, and unclear expectations at times. Some seem to be celebrated, whiles others are not, and it seems to be a matter of salesman ship to determine which is which.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management is to provide clear and concise feedback to those looking to advance their careers with the company, and to look at internal candidates more often as they are truly the ones who have a solid understanding of the business.

    Current Employee - HEB Cashier in Conroe, TX (US)

    I have been working at H E B part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours if you're a student, opportunities for advancement, great pay in comparison to Kroger or any other retail job. Frequent raises and partner benefits (free food) HEB is expanding like crazy in Texas so you have many opportunities to be hired

    Cons

    Busy part of the month means more hours but when it's slow you can be scheduled low hours especially if you're new, frequent evaluation of your performance if you're in service so that can feel like you're in trouble all of the time..no benefits if you're part time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Y'all are great!

    Pros

    Great company values and culture. Potential growth for right candidates with outgoing, can do attitude.

    Cons

    Limited work life balance. Weekends and holidays are busiest times so. Your experience will depend directly on a particular store's director. Bad director can make the job a nightmare.

    Decent first job

    Former Employee - Customer Service Assistant

    I worked at H E B part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management in my location was understanding. Coworkers were generally friendly. The managers kept everyone in the store busy. If there were no customers, we cleaned. This seems valuable.

    Cons

    Pay was minimum wage for baggers (or customer service assistants to use the official title). Interviews were done in groups and were somewhat silly. Among the people working at the front of the store, there was a bit of a cultural divide between the older full time employees and the high school students working part-time before going off to college.
