Pros

Faced paced. Fun environment. The upper management is very helpful and nice. I received more than adequate training for the position. They were very helpful in accomodating scheduling conflicts.

Cons

Standing and working for 8 hours can be exhausting.

    Pros

    --The pay is better here than at most grocery stores --Every employee is given a Valued Partner Perks card, which entitles you to a 10% discount on store brands (the H-E-B brand, Hill Country Fare, Central Market, etc.) and to select free products throughout the month. --Unlike most places I've worked, the satisfaction of the customer seems to be stressed over how much money the store is making. --The company has its own credit union, so if you don't have a bank account, you can still have the benefits of one of free of charge. --You get paid weekly (usually on Wednesday by 5PM, if you have direct deposit--which you will, if you join their credit union or use your own bank). --All scheduling and payroll information can be accessed online, so it is easy to drop or pick up shifts and request time off, if needed. --The company stresses community service, charity work, and employee health. --All of my coworkers are friendly and we seem to have a good time, even when the store is hectic. --Management is laid back and easy-going. --Checkers are given a thorough, hands-on 12 hour training course (spread over two days) on register operations, as well as a separate 2-3 hour TABC training course.

    Cons

    --The work itself can be a bit hectic, especially when the store is busy and the weather conditions are poor. There are basically two positions offered to incoming partners--Baggers and Checkers. Baggers jump from one lane to another, assisting the checker in bagging the customer's groceries. They are also expected to help the customer carry out and unload their groceries if requested, assist elderly customers who are using the store's motorized vehicles by bringing the scooters back into the store, running perishable items back to the shelves if left behind, replacing customers items if they are damaged, and keeping the parking lot organized by bringing in carts from their assigned areas. Some people move up from bagger to checker quickly, while some are baggers for their duration with the company. People who have the title of Checker obviously scan the customers items and are expected to be fast and efficient by scanning so many items per minute,correctly tendering the payment, and answering any customer questions. Checkers still have at least two bagging/carryout shifts per week, so there is some variety in the work if you prefer one position over another. Either way, you have to go outside and deal with sometimes unpleasant conditions. --H-E-B will hire 16-year-olds, so expect some of your coworkers to be immature and irresponsible. Honestly, those are the only two cons I can think of. Otherwise, I really like working here.

    Pros

    Well some of the good reasons to work at H.E.B. is that being in the grocery business unless you do something wrong it will be hard to lose your job. Everyone has to eat right.

    Cons

    You are sometimes taken advantage of. They make you work long hours and they sometimes don't give you your break. If they do give you your break it is never on time. You also have to fight to get hours and management looks down on you just because you are working your way through college and they aren't any more. Also if you manager tells you to do something specifically and it is wrong, they do not get in trouble, your the only one to blame. They never want to make you a full timer because they don't want to pay for benefits but they would like for you to work full time hours. The pay is horrible and most of the time since the managers are mainly men, unless you are a gorgeous or big breasted woman you won't move up as quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Become better mangers. Be more like Charles C. Butt, you know a good manager.
