    Current Employee - HEB Cashier in Sienna Plantation, TX

    I have been working at H E B

    Pros

    Pros working for HEB include: great pay, (compared to competitors), 10% discount on HEB brand items, free treats in the break room occasionally (break room has lockers, a fridge, microwave, and a tv), room for growth, you get a break about every 2 hours, they schedule you according to your availability, your schedule can be acquired through internet and sent to your phone.

    Cons

    Breaks are only 15 minutes long (you get to stay on the clock, but still...), if you're a cashier sometimes you don't have a bagger and find yourself doing a two person job which slows down the check out line, if you are not a people person try a job in bagging, stocking or another department because customers think you're rude if you don't engage in small talk with them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have sufficient baggers so check out lines run smoother and customers don't have to bag groceries for themselves, we are a custom service oriented corporation, we can do better!

    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.

    Pros

    Great pay and raises. Can switch to other departments easily

    Crappy managers who do not pay attention to the most valuable employees. They only care about the store making money

    Treat employees with dignity and pay attention to detail

    I have been working at H E B full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most of your co-workers are intelligent. They teach everyone, from bagger to the highest manager, to always be there for the customer. It's busy but also laid back. Communication within my department and between other departments was almost always good.

    Cons

    It takes awhile to get a decent salary. raises are percentage based, a fair system, but 5% of $8/hr is only .40 cents while 5% of $12 is .60 cents. The longer you stay the higher your raises become.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep teaching customer service skills. It's why people like you and hate Walmart.

  10. Great company if you want to put in work and advance upward.

    I have been working at H E B part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can be very flexible with your availability if you are part time/in school. Vacation is usually easy to get if you ask enough in advance. And if you are willing to work for it, it is a great company to advance in.

    Cons

    However, be ready to work weekends. Although it may be possible to not work weekends, this industry kind of requires it. Depending on the store, it may be hard to get a lot of scheduled hours if you are part time.
