    In the early years it was exciting and challenging but as the years passed it became to mechanized and robotic.

    I have been working at H E B full-time (more than 10 years)


    Great salary and benefits. Very progressive company with ample opportunities for promotion if you perform. Training programs are excellent if you have a great trainer. Nice discount card for family purchases.


    Over the years the family owned atmosphere has diminished and the environment is political at times. At times promises are made and broken in regards to ongoing training and promotions. Hiring to fill positions from outside the company with very qualified internal applicants can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you make a commitment,stick to it. Be more upfront with your people when it comes to promotional opportunities vs. skirting the issue(s) on why one is not being considered for promotions. The company continues to grow, don;t become another Walmart, stay personable with your Partners.
