I have been working at Ingles Markets full-time (more than a year)

Pros

This is a retail job with retail hours regardless of what shift or position you work. Ingles offers a stable workplace to learn basic skills or begin a new career. Ingles has a 401k that offers to match 50%. They have worked with me on my scheduling and if I need a weekend off they allow you to switch days with others to make it happen. I read a lot negative reviews about this company...Ingles has a whole is a great company however each location will be ran and operated differently...it.s up to you the employee to make it a good experience.

Cons

As I mentioned each location is different. Where I'm at the store management needs a reality check. Other than that...no complaints.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's OK and good practice to be a part of your employees personal life. Get to know them...what makes them who they are...they're needs...they're aspirations. Management needs to tend to employees like crops in a garden...The more tending...weeding the better the overall outcome.

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time (less than a 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

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time (more than a 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!
