    Pros

    Highest paid department.There is always something to do,which makes the day go faster,and there will always be a need for this postion in the future.

    Cons

    Lowest paying of all grocery chains.The yearly raise if you get one is 25 cents an hour,now that adds up to $10 a week.
    You cannot support a family on this salary,so your spouse better have a job also.
    The district manager for your department comes by weekly with his "white glove" test.ans depending on his mood can be ok or downright degrading.
    Next the grocery district manager comes through about very other week doing the same thing,so in essence you have a minimum of five local bosses.
    They work you like a dog if you are new in the department while others tke extended and frequent smoke breaks because "they work faster " than you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees so they can support a family.Train the employees for what the district managers expect,maybe a training video of the jobs daily activities rather than degrading them for not doing what was expected

    Pros

    The position is simple and repetitive. Most of the tasks require little or no advanced training.

    Cons

    Safety and repair issues are unanswered for months. Management's drive toward bottom line profit is misdirected away from maintenance and repair of essential equipment; making tasks more difficult and time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    Address problems, rather than ignoring them. Listen to employee concerns before problems explode. Don't just hope problems will go away.

    Pros

    Given the opportunity to gain experience while on the job and in due time move up in the company

    Cons

    On some days there is as many as five people in one work area when there should at least be more that way more jobs can be done within time instead of put off and dumped on an individual

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to work instead of relying on a skeleton crew to get the job the more employee's the better

    Pros

    Honestly at the moment I can't think of one. Maybe that's because I've been there for six years and I'm to the point I hate it and everyone there.

    Cons

    At my store, they pay minimum wage when they can. 6 years later and I still make about 9.25/hr and I'm an assistant manager in one of the departments.

    Not a lot of opportunity for advancement because they continue to hire new people for the higher jobs rather than moving the people who have been there at the bottom, up.

    Advice to Management

    Management sucks. My manager is the biggest A-hole I've ever known. He is completely sarcastic. And I think he goes out of his way to make employees lives miserable unless it is someone who kisses his but. The district managers are a little better than him but not by much

    Pros

    You get paid weekly.
    Unless you are full time there are no insurance benefits.

    Cons

    Promote and give manager positions to people who are too young and inexperienced.
    I have never seen or heard the ongoing use of profanity in the department I worked in like I did at Ingles. You get what you pay for.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced responsible older people to run your Deli departments. Do not let relatives work together.

    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 .

    Pros

    You'll get regular hours if they like you. They provide uniforms.

    Cons

    You can be puking in the floor and they won't let you call out. They pay next to nothing yet they expect to basically own you. The registers are old and clunky and they won't train you correctly on them. The dress code is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees?
