    I have been working at H E B part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the flexibility, the pay is decent, unless you plan to move up with the company & the 10% discount is fun especially when the company gives free items.

    Cons

    Too much favortism, the service area (cashier, PLAs, CSA,CSR, etc) turnover rate is high. Managers come & go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have held a lower-level position once before please act like it. You are no better than the cashiers, PLAs, CSAs, etc. your title just changed.

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

    Pros

    They will work with you as much as possibe.
    Will listen to your need and feedback.
    Able to move to different departments if one is not to your liking.

    Cons

    Pay is a little low for what you actually work.
    Some customers (at least in my location) are pretty rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a person is working very hard, please dont just give them a pat on the back. Do whatever you can to let him know you and other managemnt know about his work. Also make a note of it when it comes to giving raises. Nothing makes a person happy to see that all his hard work is "paying" off.

    It is a great company to work for if you have a busy schedule. Easy to work with you and your schedule if you are in school or have other activities you are involved in. Also nice management and great working environment

    Cons

    Some cons include sometimes contradict themselves in decision making. No real bonuses for working with the company especially for part time workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more benefits for part time employees work harder or just as hard as full timers and hardly any benefits

    Laid back. Free food/items. Great benefits. Lots of opportunities for growth and advancement.

    Cons

    There aren't too many cons that I can think of. However, there are many different management styes varying from department to department as well as different managers within each department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Leading by example" can be an opportunity for some managers.
