    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There's always something to do and the pay is pretty good. They have weekly pay and alternating schedules every week that help with your personal life flexibility.

    Cons

    It's takes a little while to ever get a raise or move up to a higher position. I don't like how some employees acted towards management.

    Advice to Management

    You should get rid of bad employees BEFORE it gets to the worst point .
