    Pros

    Given the opportunity to gain experience while on the job and in due time move up in the company

    Cons

    On some days there is as many as five people in one work area when there should at least be more that way more jobs can be done within time instead of put off and dumped on an individual

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to work instead of relying on a skeleton crew to get the job the more employee's the better

    Pros

    You'll get regular hours if they like you. They provide uniforms.

    Cons

    You can be puking in the floor and they won't let you call out. They pay next to nothing yet they expect to basically own you. The registers are old and clunky and they won't train you correctly on them. The dress code is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees?

    Cons

    You don't receive as many day as you would like and the pay isn't great, you get a 25 cent raise every YEAR you work there. So it take a year to just make 7.50 and hour...

    Pros

    With an Ingles ever few miles it is not hard to find one within walking distance from your home and most of my co-worker were nice people.

    Cons

    My department manager never has the items we need to do our jobs on hand, then when we can not complete the jobs will curse us. Manager also claims cleaning is a waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    If you know a department is failing due poor management don't just keep bring in new people that run off in a few weeks due to being yelled at, blamed for things they have no power over, and being called names, get a new department manager.

    Pros

    The only good thing about working here was the friendships made with direct coworkers.

    Cons

    Poor pay for the work required Looked down on and treated terribly by upper management Upper management was disorganized and hardly ever on the same page as other upper management Customers are sometimes just plain silly (as with all customer service jobs) High turnover rate of employees Don't usually promote from within Good work is not noted

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and treat your employees better.

    Pros

    Hours and pay because I needed something part-time

    Cons

    The management is horrible. The store manager at the store I was at would cuss out employees if she was having a bad day to the point of threatening to fire to pregnant employees if they missed anymore work because of their conditions. Our department breathed sighs of relief on that store manager's days off.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees like their human beings. We're not your personal slaves for you to take your bad day out on. We have families and children that get sick, pass away or family emergencies come up that we have no control over. Don't tell us that you're going to fire us if one more thing happens. Don't threaten our jobs when we have to miss work because we have to admit our kid into the hospital!! Use some common sense! Sensitivity train would do management some good.

    Pros

    It is easy to get a job here. All you have to do is just walk in and perform a background check. If you pass, the job is yours. One manager was really a nice guy.

    Cons

    Poor customer service and uneducated management. The management does not require respect from their employees so service is sacrificed. Employee training is awful.
