    Pros

    HEB sets the bar in customer service, and offers great training, competitive benefits, flexible scheduling, and advancement opportunities based on performance.

    Cons

    Some positions require very early shift start times. Most positions require almost constant standing and/or walking. Most departments require open schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Don't replace older partners with younger (cheaper) labor.

    Pros

    Management will work with you to create your own schedule, and you get to interact with many friendly people from many backgrounds

    Cons

    There were not any real cons to working here, except a compensation at minimum wage jobs for people at checkout who interact with customers and load their cars with groceries

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up management! My boss was very friendly and easy to approach. The management cared about me as a worker and a person. Let this example guide all of your managers

    Pros

    HEB is a great company to work for. Many employees stay with the company for over 20 years. The company offers great salaries and a great caring culture. The hours are not excessive and great work environment. The company also offers unmatched benefits!

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that you have to work all the holidays pretty much. Some lengthy travel is required at times if not willing to relocate

    Pros

    Great people to work with, fun atmosphere, Benefits were exceptional and I LOVED my job in Showtime!

    Cons

    standing for long hours, I had a new young manager that was clueless, but open to suggestion

    Advice to Management

    Try to get out of the box and get creative with your management. Sometimes your more creative staff see you as drones.

    Pros

    They have a good pay scale and pay much better than similar stores (i.e. Walmart or Target). you receive respect from management as long as you perform your duties in a competent fashion. They allow a lot of schedule flexibility and employ a large number of student workers

    Cons

    It is not good for full-time work and the management tends to micromanage those that don't seem to be self-starters. As it is a Customer Service industry, you sometime shave to deal with unpleasant customers who see the uniform as a carte blanche to treat you as less than human.

    Pros

    I worked at HEB for alittle over a year and found it to be fast pace and hard work. Opportunity for advancement was there. Raises every 6 months.

    Cons

    Managers played favoritism and never seem to have time to deal with your issues or questions. They do write people up alot and it can be a very repetitive work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Relate to your partners like you do with your customers. Try and be understanding without looking down on people.

    Pros

    They are very flexible, the pay is absolutely amazing - especially for college students. It is a fun work environment because it is mostly young people working in the Service department.

    Cons

    The company relies heavily on food stamp incomes, so after the 15th of the month, part timers get cut DRASTICALLY. I mean it's horrible... so many people who work at HEB often have two jobs because the end of the month - you get cut so bad like you don't even have a job.

    Advice to Management

    I hate that HEB claims to have 'so much room to grow' but I keep getting the run around on why I haven't been promoted.

    Pros

    Everyone at the company is friendly and helpful. All managers are truly interested in helping the employees learn and become better at their job. Paycheck every week. Above average pay for such a basic job.

    Cons

    None. Very enjoyable job. There isn't really anything I would change about the work environment or the way the store is run.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in approaching management candidates. I've been told by lower management that the upper level would love to have me in management training, but haven't been approached by any upper level partners.
