    Pros

    people are great and you gain a lot of experience with help if you need it.

    Cons

    management could be better if they treated their employees like their an essential part of the "team". and the only scanning gun we have is at u-scan so if you have a bad back good luck lifting water bottle cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    being less harsh and providing the correct equipment to employers can help avoid a lawsuit.

  8. Cashier

    Current Employee - Cashier in Spartanburg, SC

    I have been working at Ingles Markets part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    From my experience, the managers were extremely laid back and easy to get along with. The job itself was quite easy to understand and soon I was able to complete it with such ease that I didn't even have to look down. Also, if you had something come up and needed time off (even if it was that same day), the managers were always willing to work with you. For the most, everyone was able to get along well together and more than willing to assist if you needed help with something (bagging groceries, looking up a produce number, running an errand, etc.).

    Cons

    The managers were sometimes so laid back that they did not enforce the rules entirely (I worked at two of these markets and only ran across one manager, out of about 8, that did this).

    Pros

    Get to experience a lot of new things it's a whole me and I really do h hope I'm doing a good job I'd like to think I am.

    Cons

    Trying to learn new jobs in the department I'm in, not enough time spent on training someone before you are just thrown into it very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need to listen to all complaints no matter how big or small you think it is, it means something to the person who is bringing it to your attention.
