    I have been working at H E B full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Special Partner discounts, weekly free, usually "new" items. Flexible Hours. Ability to move up just as fast and much as you want depending on your self motivation. Ability to find where you belong, department wise. Benefits. Partner Bonuses. Free Flu Shot. :) HEB does have a motto. . .(H)ere (E)verything Is (B)etter and Because People Matter.

    Cons

    I don't think there are many cons, except improving on making things that are good and making them great. Noticing the knowledgable partners who do more while questioning and removing other who don't meet that "HEB" standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledging the hard working partners and listening to them when they have something to say.

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

    Pros

    If you are a people person this is the company for you! Make sure you show up with your badge on shiny and in place smile plastered to your face and be ready to pass off as much of your daily work to your other department workers as possible. It's all about delegating! No really that is what they look for , make sure you can pass it off and get on to bigger issues of breaks and lunches and hiding any flaws from customers eyes. Managers are a joke here.

    Cons

    Old school partners, no accountable people. No help to amount to anything if they are found at peak times. Poor management skills and in many departments language barriers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training.

    Pros

    Really great company to work for. Plenty of room to advance so long as you try. One of the best grocery stores to shop around.

    Cons

    Sometimes the CCM's can be a little rude to their employees. I understand they are trying to keep the employees in line but understand that they are human too.

    Pros

    Good benefits, partner perks card was awesome for cheaper groceries. Quarterly bonus for salaried partners was good.

    Cons

    Manufacturing quality assurance doesn't pay anywhere near industry average. Titles are not correct either for level of work required, Team Leader instead of Manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give managers walking papers that continue to have Partners leave the company. HEB recognizes 3 core competencies, Heart For People, Passion For Results and Head for Business. Heart For People isn't displayed well by several leaders in manufacturing.

    Pros

    great benefits, great pay for the state standard . Hiring process is less than a week. Literally the hired me on the second day. i started training on the third

    Cons

    you feel like you are in the army. you are basically expendable cause people really fight for this job. IS an extremely competitive job, so is a "everyone fight for their own" if you" So basically if you are on the electric kart that hey provide you, and somehow you have an accident with your stuff. is very rare that someone will stop, and try to help you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting the alpha male motivational speech every morning, doesn't work like that anymore
