Horrible treatment of long-time and loyal employees.

I worked at Ingles Markets full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It was good to work near home, but that was the only good thing about working for this corrupt company.

Cons

The management has no idea what they are doing and play favorites. Constant back-stabbing between coworkers, changing of schedules, inappropriate behavior between managers and employees, and immoral food safety practices. There is no opportunity given to advance through the company unless you suck up to the right person. No employee discount, even on a simple lunch tray. They do not live up to the image they project, nor provide proper documentation of company policies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

How about requiring any management personnel to hold a degree in some aspect of management? Or stopping the unfair treatment of employees by other management.

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For the most part, working there was relatively easy, easily handling most customer requests and questions. I also enjoyed working with some of the other employees. Some extremely helpful. Most of the POS systems were easy to learn and pick up.

    Cons

    The first big mistake you make and you're out the door! It had been a hot day, I'd done quite a bit of work with the AC being out. Tired, hot, exhausted.... Picked up a cord that I'd moved earlier that after the fact I knew wasn't mine and packed it into my car. Hadn't even left when the owner of the cord wanted it back. Said cord was returned and an apology and partial excuse was given but certainly after the fact not accepted. Was let go the next morning due to 'trust issues'. Mistakes made on my part, mistakes made on my part and on my immediate supervisor's part as well. A verbal reprimand or pay cut would have worked better than just getting fired for an honest mistake. A mistake that could have been avoided if I had not been hot and tired or if the owner of the cord had not left it behind. The time clock issue took some time to resolve as well, more than several days to get my timeclock number to work properly, and never did get a clerk ID number to run the POS terminals under my own name. LAME and LAZY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a little bit more lee-way on a first mistake, and strive to allow for growth and improvement, not just firing them outright.

    I worked at Ingles Markets full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It is easy to get a job here. All you have to do is just walk in and perform a background check. If you pass, the job is yours.

    One manager was really a nice guy.

    Cons

    Poor customer service and uneducated management. The management does not require respect from their employees so service is sacrificed. Employee training is awful.
