    Pros

    The pay is amazing, you get paid weekly, it's in a convenient location and everyone who works there is ready to help you.

    Cons

    The work in the bakery is very tedious and redundant. Same routine every night. Pan cookies, sweep/wash floor, wash dishes...etc

    Pros

    Excellent job. My manager is a pro and knows what it takes to be a success. Decent benefits and the company offers room for growth and likes to promote from within whenever possible.

    Cons

    Salary is minimal for many positions and you usually have to start with a part-time position. You must be able to multi-task in the bookkeeper position!

    Pros

    -Relatively less intrusive supervisors -Supportive store manager and regional pharmacy manager -Decent pay, with time-and-a-half overtime -Hands-off flexibility in working out a schedule with your staff pharmacist (except required time for inventory, mangers meeting, &c.)

    Cons

    -You open and you close: 12 hour weekdays -Miserly 10 cents on the dollar matching for retirement plan -Prescription drug coverage restricts you to Ingles unless out of town Few locations compared to national chains--thus, inflexible vacation scheduling, had to get floater coverage

    Pros

    Easy to work with your schedule if you are a student. My CSMs are really easy to get a long with and know they have your back. Paid every week.

    Cons

    Odd work schedule, Weds thru Tues. No room to move to really move. Irritating raises even if you work really well at your position.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees better about their concerns.

    Pros

    None, accept for leaving

    Cons

    If you enjoy being sabotage you'll love working for here. This was by-far the one of the worst experiences I've ever had in the workplace. I've been at entry level up to executive management jobs and this corporation has it wrong on so many levels.

    Advice to Management

    It's called hire the right management team and you'll see everything from your customers to personnel change instantly.

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time

    Pros

    you can get more than minimum wage, which in this particular market is good. yeah, that's about it

    Cons

    if you're not one of the special ones, you will only ever be given a handful of hours. New people who do nothing all day will have more than you. Since management makes your schedule specifically as to have no direct contact with you, there's no way to communicate. Your emails will go unanswered, and handwritten notes asking them to contact you will be ignored. If your 2nd job that you must get to survive working there is a restaurant, the store manager may confront you telling you that working at a grocery store and a restaurant is a conflict of interests, and give you an ultimatum to decide which one to work.

    Advice to Management

    If you take care of your people while they work for you exclusively, you might actually get to keep more of your better ones.

    Pros

    Good amount of hours, everyone is super nice, and really easy to ask for days off.

    Cons

    I had no orientation, just a few days of training, so there were instances where I didnt know how to handle a situation.

    Pros

    friendly environment, most other employees are easy to work with, most customers are friendly, and someone will always make your day being a cahsier

    Cons

    the store manager does not like to give yearly raises, the managers show extreme favoritism, there is some sexual harassment with the managers and the district does nothing about it

    Advice to Management

    TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES RIGHT, being in management there should be a respectful business approach to everything you do
