    Pros

    From my experience, the managers were extremely laid back and easy to get along with. The job itself was quite easy to understand and soon I was able to complete it with such ease that I didn't even have to look down. Also, if you had something come up and needed time off (even if it was that same day), the managers were always willing to work with you. For the most, everyone was able to get along well together and more than willing to assist if you needed help with something (bagging groceries, looking up a produce number, running an errand, etc.).

    Cons

    The managers were sometimes so laid back that they did not enforce the rules entirely (I worked at two of these markets and only ran across one manager, out of about 8, that did this).

    Pros

    Get to experience a lot of new things it's a whole me and I really do h hope I'm doing a good job I'd like to think I am.

    Cons

    Trying to learn new jobs in the department I'm in, not enough time spent on training someone before you are just thrown into it very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to listen to all complaints no matter how big or small you think it is, it means something to the person who is bringing it to your attention.

    Pros

    Friendly environment by coworkers & customers, if you're a friendly person, "OK" pay, clean store.

    Cons

    Gotta know who to suck up to that's the only way you get pay raise & speedy benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fairly, appreciate those who work hard & reward them for it! Don't flirt with little girls!

    Pros

    Good management (store level). My manager is awesome and gave me opportunities to learn new things on the job + full time. Most of the people I work with are very friendly. My health insurance through work is very good.

    Cons

    Rather poor pay. Our computers hardly function which is annoying. I hate seeing customers upset over things that people at the store level cannot fix. This makes us less efficient as a company and also upsets the customers who give our business profit.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what our competition is doing regarding office software/ U-scans. Our competition has more advanced U-scans that are more customer-friendly and might cause customers to shop elsewhere. We need to outdo our competition. Give customers a way to type in their Ingles Advantage Cards at their own convenience at the register or at least allow the cashier to have a way to look it up on their register. This would ensure a faster transaction and a happier customer. This is not a negative review, just a suggestion on how to make our customers have a more satisfying experience while shopping at Ingles.

    Pros

    Highest paid department.There is always something to do,which makes the day go faster,and there will always be a need for this postion in the future.

    Cons

    Lowest paying of all grocery chains.The yearly raise if you get one is 25 cents an hour,now that adds up to $10 a week. You cannot support a family on this salary,so your spouse better have a job also. The district manager for your department comes by weekly with his "white glove" test.ans depending on his mood can be ok or downright degrading. Next the grocery district manager comes through about very other week doing the same thing,so in essence you have a minimum of five local bosses. They work you like a dog if you are new in the department while others tke extended and frequent smoke breaks because "they work faster " than you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees so they can support a family.Train the employees for what the district managers expect,maybe a training video of the jobs daily activities rather than degrading them for not doing what was expected
