    I have been working at H E B full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay is all I have

    Cons

    Grocery dept don't give a damm about its night crew

    Advice to Management

    Step back and look at who is really the back bone of the grocery dept and show some real appreciation. Was denied a interview for a job that my manger wanted me to take but the U.D flat out denied me a interview for no reason at all not until I had to get a attorney to contact HEB did they give me one. Note I held the position for many other stores as well as this one with nothing but excellent results

    I worked at H E B (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They care about their partners and want them to succeed. The benefits (IF you can get full time) are great.

    Cons

    It's the grocery business, retail and customer service are the absolute worst, but a job is a job.

    I worked at H E B full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Heb really takes care of their employees. They have great benefits. ...including lodges employees can use for free in two separate locations.

    Cons

    The only cons are really for part time. Certain times of the year your hours can get cut and they give you only 8- 24 hours. It is pretty hard to get full time.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourself to the same standards you want the partners to live up to.

    I worked at H E B (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, Company cares about employees and community, Fun and Friendly work environment, they love to promote from within and have great tools to help teach you the skills you need to succeed.

    Cons

    At some stores and areas it can become a little hard to move up or fit in if you aren't liked by upper management. There are some areas where you need to kiss up a little more than others.

    Advice to Management

    Find your partners that have the hidden talents and passions and give them the chance to shine. When someone loves their job, they are so much better at it then someone who hates what they are doing.

    I have been working at H E B full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company, CEO, benefits, employees, opportunities, experience, and even products. The managers selected carefully to ensure that they understand how to work well with people and customers. The top priority of the company is to give not only the customers a great shopping experience but to make the employees feel like they are part of a family rather than just a worker. You can teach anyone the numbers of a business but you can't teach them how to interact well with people.

    Cons

    The only downside of working for H-E-B is that they are only located in Texas and Mexico.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits Meet lots of people; great job if youre a people person Lots of departments to choose from

    Cons

    Rude customers You work a lot of weekends and holidays so your social schedule doesnt always match your family/friends You arent usually allowed to use vacation during holiday times because of business needs

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like the store will burn down if a department isnt fully staffed. If somebody is there to keep an eye on things and help customers, the store will be fine. Stop bending so far to every tiny customer suggestion; draw the line between whats good for business and whats good for customers. Also, stop replacing national brands with in house brands and go back to making your items less expensive than the national alternative.
