    Pros

    The pay is amazing, you get paid weekly, it's in a convenient location and everyone who works there is ready to help you.

    Cons

    The work in the bakery is very tedious and redundant. Same routine every night. Pan cookies, sweep/wash floor, wash dishes...etc

    Pros

    I enjoy our customers and the people I work with. Ingles has a lot of good people in bad work situations.

    Cons

    Not competitive with salary and this forces turnover. Have to continue to train new employees because of this. Upper management does not have a clue as to what goes on in the stores. We get new policy after new policy handed down to us, at times conflicting policies. Pay scale across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better. Better benefits. Be competitive. Your people make the difference between you and Walmart, so keep them happy.

    Pros

    Excellent job. My manager is a pro and knows what it takes to be a success. Decent benefits and the company offers room for growth and likes to promote from within whenever possible.

    Cons

    Salary is minimal for many positions and you usually have to start with a part-time position. You must be able to multi-task in the bookkeeper position!

    Pros

    -Relatively less intrusive supervisors -Supportive store manager and regional pharmacy manager -Decent pay, with time-and-a-half overtime -Hands-off flexibility in working out a schedule with your staff pharmacist (except required time for inventory, mangers meeting, &c.)

    Cons

    -You open and you close: 12 hour weekdays -Miserly 10 cents on the dollar matching for retirement plan -Prescription drug coverage restricts you to Ingles unless out of town Few locations compared to national chains--thus, inflexible vacation scheduling, had to get floater coverage

    Pros

    Easy to work with your schedule if you are a student. My CSMs are really easy to get a long with and know they have your back. Paid every week.

    Cons

    Odd work schedule, Weds thru Tues. No room to move to really move. Irritating raises even if you work really well at your position.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees better about their concerns.

    Good amount of hours, everyone is super nice, and really easy to ask for days off.

    Pros

    friendly environment, most other employees are easy to work with, most customers are friendly, and someone will always make your day being a cahsier

    Cons

    the store manager does not like to give yearly raises, the managers show extreme favoritism, there is some sexual harassment with the managers and the district does nothing about it

    Advice to Management

    TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES RIGHT, being in management there should be a respectful business approach to everything you do
