I worked at Ingles Markets part-time (less than an year)

Pros

nothing is really coming to mind.. i guess i had a few interesting conversations with customers. way more rude customers overall though

Cons

leadership is bad. manager's quote: "we will hire anyone with two teeth in their head" so naturally the turnover rate is high. you dont always get days off even when you ask well in advance. raises based on seniority not performance so very little incentive to work hard

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The beginning salary is $8.00
    You meet some good customers and great employees.
    The manager for the shift pretty much declares whether or not it'll be a good day or not.

    Cons

    -Extremely poor management!
    -Do not expect to be seen or treated like an adult, especially if you're a service clerk. The worst job.
    -People are very disgusting and the work is sometimes tedious.
    -The managers seriously do not care and expect you to do every stupid request they give you because you're under them (things that are not even found in the job description).
    -They will also target and manipulate others by threatening their jobs.
    -The workers who receive favoritism are excused from doing their job, so you have to pick up all chores.
    -Most of the management treat the store like a high school. Do not be shocked at the ample amount of drama and gossip being spread around the store.
    -The customers sometines have very ridiculous request and will become very upset and aggressive with the cashier for a mistake that was not in their control! (A product rings up for the wrong price).
    -Very inconsistent hours.
    -You'll be training the person who is destined to replace you.
    -Management will take out personal issues on employees by treating them in a despicable, very unprofessional manner.
    -The few managers who actually represent and respect the employees will be highly criticized and abandoned by the rest of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually do your job! Stop treating the employees like idiot children! Stop targeting particular employees and having them complete ridiculous task. You NEED to listen to your employees and customers especially if a large group is complaining about ONE manager in particular. Definitely need to invest in better employee evaluations. Please STOP hiring a bunch of people unfit for this job just because they have a pretty smile and fulfill your secret fantasy. If too many people are on the front end and there's only one person in the bakery, perhaps you should start taking that into consideration you morons!

    I worked at Ingles Markets full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Well the pros are that I no longer work there. That place drove me absolutely crazy to the point of no return

    Cons

    Many cons but just to name the major ones. The management is god awful. They play favorites to an extreme. If you do your job they will get on to you. If your on your knees the management will love you. Then you have the customers. They apparently think since they pay more for their groceries that they deserve some kind of special treatment. I don't think so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CEO. Clean house and just maybe the place won't be obsolete in a few years
