    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Open more stores in the Knoxville, TN area

    Pros

    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

    This is a retail job with retail hours regardless of what shift or position you work. Ingles offers a stable workplace to learn basic skills or begin a new career. Ingles has a 401k that offers to match 50%. They have worked with me on my scheduling and if I need a weekend off they allow you to switch days with others to make it happen. I read a lot negative reviews about this company...Ingles has a whole is a great company however each location will be ran and operated differently...it.s up to you the employee to make it a good experience.

    Cons

    As I mentioned each location is different. Where I'm at the store management needs a reality check. Other than that...no complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's OK and good practice to be a part of your employees personal life. Get to know them...what makes them who they are...they're needs...they're aspirations. Management needs to tend to employees like crops in a garden...The more tending...weeding the better the overall outcome.

    I have been working at Ingles Markets part-time

    Pros

    Good introduction to customer service and great coworkers. They are flexible with your schedule and provide good hours. Environment is relaxed and friendly.

    Cons

    Low starting base pay and small raises. Few opportunities for advancement. Store equipment is generally outdated. Working with the public means you will deal with some rude and mean customers.
