    Pros

    Excellent company to work for, they really work with your schedule if you are in school.

    Cons

    Management tends to show a favor towards certain employees

    Advice to Management

    Depending on the store, management can be great and they care about their partners. Maybe they need to show more partner appreciation

    Pros

    the people you work with are all very friendly and willing to help out! Even upper management comes and helps on the floor when short staffed.

    Cons

    The scheduling is very flexible but the timing you get each week is very inconsistent. It's hard to have a normal routine

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities if you are a motivated partner/employee who shows initiative. H-E-B promotes from within prior to hiring any external managers which is rare in companies these days. They offer great benefits and partner incentives to further your education and career. H-E-B may be the best company I have ever been employed by.

    Cons

    Can be a high stress management position depending on which store you are assigned. All stores are held to the same standards regardless of location.

    Pros

    Annual raises, store discounts, partner perks programs, free Thanksgiving turkey, scheduling, usually a constant happy environment. Training is actually interesting.

    Cons

    There really isn't any cons to working with HEB unless it's a slow day and there isn't much to do until the store picks up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, keep the employees satisfied, this store provides some of the best customer service I've ever known.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, Great benefits, partner perks, Discount, flexible hours, able to transfer from store to store and city to city

    Cons

    Hard to move up to store leadership from inside company, constantly trying new processes to increase productivity but in end hurt morale and customer service

    Advice to Management

    Help drive leaders from inside store instead of searching for new college graduates where retention is less than 20%
