    Pros

    Friendly environment by coworkers & customers, if you're a friendly person, "OK" pay, clean store.

    Cons

    Gotta know who to suck up to that's the only way you get pay raise & speedy benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fairly, appreciate those who work hard & reward them for it! Don't flirt with little girls!

    Pros

    Can't think of any ... even ones promised in interview.

    Cons

    Worst company ever! Continually cut hours ... was only offered part-time hours (supposedly guaranteeing 28 hours per week) and when scheduled for 28 hours (which rarely happens) hours have been cut.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the real world. People's monthly bills don't fluctuate according to Ingle's poor management and scheduling. Don't promise people a certain amount of hours then screw them over because you have favorites working in your store who get more hours. Seriously .... who can pay their bills when they are only scheduled 5, 8, 12 or 20 hours a week and then you send them home early because the store is having a slow day??? Also you should give each employee a set weekly schedule so that they can have a steady second job because no one I know (other than managers) who works at Ingles makes enough to pay their bills.

    Pros

    The customers and some of the employees.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. Only part time unless you are in the club. Positions are never posted to give anyone a chance to move up. They tell you flexible schedule..but that is only for students. Store manager do little besides hanging out in the back room. Customers are always asking if the manager is in.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a guest advantage card. You make customers have the card but make it inconvenient when they lose it or can't find it. Really an inconvenience for vacationers. Move your registers away from the front door. You say you need a cashier there to monitor thieves and then when they are caught no one prosecutes. You do not provide healthcare but you want people to be sick from working in front of the doors. Then they have to miss work and pay for a doctor visit. Tell people when they are doing a good job and compensate them accordingly.

    Pros

    Good management (store level). My manager is awesome and gave me opportunities to learn new things on the job + full time. Most of the people I work with are very friendly. My health insurance through work is very good.

    Cons

    Rather poor pay. Our computers hardly function which is annoying. I hate seeing customers upset over things that people at the store level cannot fix. This makes us less efficient as a company and also upsets the customers who give our business profit.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what our competition is doing regarding office software/ U-scans. Our competition has more advanced U-scans that are more customer-friendly and might cause customers to shop elsewhere. We need to outdo our competition.
    Give customers a way to type in their Ingles Advantage Cards at their own convenience at the register or at least allow the cashier to have a way to look it up on their register.
    This would ensure a faster transaction and a happier customer.

    This is not a negative review, just a suggestion on how to make our customers have a more satisfying experience while shopping at Ingles.


  7. Worst warehouse I have ever worked in.

    Pros

    There are not many pros to the Ingles warehouse. Most of the people who work there that are not coordinators or higher are great.

    Cons

    Completely irrational production system. Coordinators seem to be on a power trip all the time. Very threatening atmosphere. They threaten everyone constantly with being suspended or fired for every little thing. There is a point system for missing work and there is zero grace, even in horrible weather conditions. Very easy to be suspended or fired for production even though the computer decides what orders you get. One of the worst places I have ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees like humans instead of being so focused on a production number on a piece of paper. Stop letting your coordinators treat people unfairly and rudely all of the time. Consider the fact that some people may not be willing to risk their life to get to work under very hazardous road conditions. You should take a look at company policy and realize that much of it is not only ridiculous but completely unnecessary. I can't wait until Publix comes to Asheville!
