    I worked at H E B part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Competitive Pay
    -Great management leaders that actually care
    -Opportunities to move up if you felt you were capable of doing more.
    -Empowered employees to do whatever it took to make customers happy.
    -Did well on staying up to date with equipment

    Cons

    -Some departments had too much oversight. 4 different managers could be calling conflicting decisions if they didn't communicate. Made things awkward.
    -When I was there, all the new hires got the same pay grade as the guys who had been there for 2 years. Was pretty demoralizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you guys do a fine job with the way the company is run. I would just encourage you to know that not everyone who tries for a promotion deserves it. Good employees (not me), have left because someone terrible got promoted and made the workplace unbearable. I suppose that happens everywhere though.

    Great atmosphere, great company, great people, great food, great opportunity for growth , great training,

    Cons

    Confined to deli area, not much variety in job task, no set schedule, hard to become full time, stand on feet all day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more set schedules and do not over hire deli partners. Make sure people are aware of the type of schedule they will receive during the hiring process.

    I have been working at H E B

    Pros

    The pay is solid, and I met some of my best friends through working here. Also, the managers are friendly. Perhaps the best thing about the place though is the flexibility.

    Cons

    While its a good place to work while in or fresh out of high school, it just wears you down. You're on your feet all day, customers are awful, and you are treated like you are less of a person. The pay really isn't worth it at the end of the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe bump the pay up and help the workers feel more appreciated.

    I worked at H E B part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with a diverse group of people
    There can be very flexible with your schedule
    Open door policy with Management
    Relaxed work environment with happy customers
    I think they will help you with additional education if you work there for a year.

    Cons

    I worked in a specialized department so there was less employee and noticeably high turnover.
    This department was brand new and the management was slowly working out the kinks.

    Current Employee - Service in Austin, TX

    I have been working at H E B part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Positive and energetic environment
    Recognition for hard work
    Lots of opportunities for personal development
    Lots of opportunities to advance
    Most managers care about and respect their partners
    10% off on all own brand products, plus free products almost every week
    Sense of community in the store and even in the company as a whole
    You get to work with great people
    Company is very philanthropic, generous, family friendly and involved in countless communities

    Cons

    Open availability is highly encouraged and pretty much required
    Work-life balance could be better, but it's not terrible
    Long hours
    Schedules can be kind of unpredictable-hard to establish a definite, set schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay private!
    Keep the same morals and mission statement that is thriving today!
    I'm not sure if it's even possible with the way scheduling works... but it would be nice for partners to get their schedules on friday and it be for the next two weeks, instead of just one
