    Pros

    HEB really does care about employees, with perks that range from discounts, to free items, to flexible scheduling, to a great 401k plan. There are multiple opportunities to learn new things in the company. Each year there is a United Way meeting where we are given the opportunity to donate to organizations, I believe my store had donated $26,000 the prior year, and that being just partners. It is possible to switch departments, you just have to nudge management for it.

    Cons

    Very easy to see favorites when working as a cashier/bagger. Within my last year here, I have come to loathe being at work. After speaking with upper management twice about a partner disrespecting me over the span of 7 months, nothing has been done, No follow ups. The manager seems to actually be avoiding me. Currently looking elsewhere for a new job. Work is very repetitive, may get boring sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    When a partner approaches you distraught about their work environment, you need to be on that like a hound dog, or you will lose your employee for something you could have changed.

    Pros

    They are very flexible with scheduling and will 9 times out of 10 work with you. Sick pay and holiday pay Casual

    Cons

    Some of the managers can be unprofessional and do not know how to keep confidential personal information private.

    Advice to Management

    If someone tells you something confidential, do not go around telling EVERYONE.

    Pros

    Great company, CEO, benefits, employees, opportunities, experience, and even products. The managers selected carefully to ensure that they understand how to work well with people and customers. The top priority of the company is to give not only the customers a great shopping experience but to make the employees feel like they are part of a family rather than just a worker. You can teach anyone the numbers of a business but you can't teach them how to interact well with people.

    Cons

    The only downside of working for H-E-B is that they are only located in Texas and Mexico.

    Pros

    HEB offers great benefits and decent pay. A good company that is easy to move up in, but also a good part time job.

    Cons

    No overtime allowed, and I wouldn't be able to support a family working there.
