    I worked at H E B

    Pros

    Very flexible schedules, paid weekly, health insurance for part time employees

    Cons

    The company only hires cashiers at part time and it is seemingly impossible to move into a full time position.

    I have been working at H E B part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    A great place to work if you're looking for something part time, though if looking to get your foot in the door to work your way up you better be prepared to work hard for it. Coworkers treat each other like part of a large family, most customers are great to work with, with a few exceptional customers that really make the work day better.

    Cons

    The family atmosphere you cultivate with your coworkers can lead to coworkers bickering like family members. Unfortunately favoritism runs rampant in all departments and can make it incredibly difficult to have any necessary changes made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn to be more assertive without being condescending. Favoritism is also a major issue amongst all departments unfortunately.

    I worked at H E B full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great company good pay many different positions to move up. great work environment if you love giving great costumer service and working hard apply.

    Cons

    never a set schedule ,you could be the greatest employee and management wouldn't notice unless a partner tells them. hard to move up the ladder if management doesn't know or like you even though they berly know you or talk to you. besides that a great company to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give everyone a chance don't judge a book by its cover keep a small line in between a management and regular partners and don't take sides, find out the problem and fix it. That way we partners take a stand together to build the greatest retailing company.

    I have been working at H E B full-time

    Pros

    Strong benefits, lots of innovation, great brand recognition, company strives to be a good corporate citizen

    Cons

    The demand on your personal time can be tremendous. The desire to beat the competition while cutting expenditures made it tough on staff. Some departments lived the H-E-B culture the company promotes, while other departments were almost toxic in nature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No leader should be untouchable no matter what money they generate or "smarts" they bring. Coach all to be consistent with the H-E-B culture so that retaining good employees is more important than making the next new widget.

    I worked at H E B part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with a diverse group of people
    There can be very flexible with your schedule
    Open door policy with Management
    Relaxed work environment with happy customers
    I think they will help you with additional education if you work there for a year.

    Cons

    I worked in a specialized department so there was less employee and noticeably high turnover.
    This department was brand new and the management was slowly working out the kinks.
