    ProsBenefits are great and friendly environment. Flexible schedule, works great with my college schedule. Pay is also good!

    Great job requiring no degree

    HEB Cashier (Former Employee)
    Waco, TX

    ProsThey have a good pay scale and pay much better than similar stores (i.e. Walmart or Target). you receive respect from management as long as you perform your duties in a competent fashion. They allow a lot of schedule flexibility and employ a large number of student workers

    ConsIt is not good for full-time work and the management tends to micromanage those that don't seem to be self-starters. As it is a Customer Service industry, you sometime shave to deal with unpleasant customers who see the uniform as a carte blanche to treat you as less than human.

    Excellent company to work for at any level of experience.

    Grocery Lead (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsGreat pay for the industry that they are in. The benefits were great and I still haven't seen a better 401k at any other company. All "partners" are treated great wick makes for a great environment.
    Also, only you can limit yourself as to how far you can grow within the company.

    ConsHolidays can take a toll on the schedule. Makes life/work balance difficult. That's what you get when you work retail though, so can't complain too much.

    Cashier

    Cashier (Former Employee)
    San Marcos, TX

    ProsThe company is growing fast and has found it's niche in the Central and Southern regions of Texas. HEB us a great place to work and offers a positive work experience with pros including: flexible hours, a great work environment, benefits, a great company culture, career development and opportunities and much more. All in all the company has a very positive culture that contributes to the satisfaction of employees and customers. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a great place to work.

    ConsThere is very little downside to working for this company. One con that comes to mind would be the rare encounters with aggravated customers that is standard with an customer-facing position. Another con may include the stress of meeting the companies metrics such as items per minute, items per bag and survey scores from customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou're doing a great job!

    It's been awesome. I love it.

    Bookkeeper (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsI love the culture of this organization. Because people matter. The benefits are amazing and the pay is pretty good. Also, career advancement is a big focus for this company. They worked well with me when I was in school.

    ConsIt would be awesome if the employee discount worked on all items in the store. However, it's not a big deal because the store brand products that it does work on are just as good as the name brand items.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on developing partners and encouraging growth.

    Great company to work for; they invest and promote their own.

    Analyst (Former Employee)
    San Antonio, TX

    Pros- Excellent work-life balance in our practice area
    - Benefits are great for a retail company
    - Salary and bonus structure are competitive for San Antonio
    - Challenging work always kept me on my toes
    - HEB is light years ahead of many other retail companies with their analytics work
    - Really puts the partner first
    - If I hadn't moved from Texas, this was the forever job

    Cons- Nothing really; compared to my other experiences, HEB really does show it cares for it's own

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue grooming and promoting strong leaders and the focus on promoting within.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
