    I have been working at H E B part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    A great place to work if you're looking for something part time, though if looking to get your foot in the door to work your way up you better be prepared to work hard for it. Coworkers treat each other like part of a large family, most customers are great to work with, with a few exceptional customers that really make the work day better.

    Cons

    The family atmosphere you cultivate with your coworkers can lead to coworkers bickering like family members. Unfortunately favoritism runs rampant in all departments and can make it incredibly difficult to have any necessary changes made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn to be more assertive without being condescending. Favoritism is also a major issue amongst all departments unfortunately.

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

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere. positive rewards for working hard. great compensation compared to other pharmacy companies in the area. several promotion possibilities to fit any personality. Pharmacy leaders are great and responsive to needs. I've worked every position available to non-rphs and have enjoyed every minuted of it. Would not leave except I got into a school out of state. They have never ever layed a single person off in 110 years. Do a great job and you'll have it until you don't want it anymore (probably won't happen in my experience)

    Cons

    Store Leadership can be a tossup as to what type of Top Store Leaders you'll end up working with. Rest assured, They tend to change frequently so you'll often work with several top store leaders per year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pharmacy Team is fantastic. No suggestions at this time.
