H E B – Why Work With Us?


One Company—Multiple Careers


We believe in the value of hard work and the importance of taking care of people. We've always dreamed big, hire great people, offer Customers the best service and sell only the freshest, safest products. We continuously look for great innovative products that distinguish us from our competitors, and make sure to give Customers low prices with the best value.

A job at H‑E‑B is an opportunity for a rewarding, never boring, career. An opportunity to utilize your talent and strengths to innovate and make a difference. An opportunity to be a part of a company and culture so unique, it earned the "Best Place to Work" award on Glassdoor. With unlimited possibilities, H‑E‑B offers everyone from the college intern to the seasoned professional more than just a job—we offer an opportunity to build a career you love.



Our Values

Service: 

At H-E-B, we believe grocery shopping is more than an errand. That’s why it’s our pledge to always go above and beyond. Here, we think like the customer, not about the customer.



Heart: 

People matter. Here, people are at the heart of every decision made and everything we do – no store cares more.


Drive: 

Competition drives us, but collaboration defines us. A shared spirit drives us to work together and build a company that doesn’t just meet the Customer’s needs, it exceeds them.


Innovation:

We’re continuously searching for ways to serve our Partners, Customers, and Communities better and make their lives easier. Here, we are relentlessly dissatisfied with the present.


Community: 

We make it a priority to get involved and make a difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors, because we believe communities should be better off by us having been there.


Commitment:

Here, we don’t need an audience to act with integrity. Because we believe you don’t need permission to do the right thing.



H-E-B's Spirit of Giving

We're in the people business. We just happen to sell groceries.

For more than 100 years, our commitment and involvement in the community has been an important part of the way we do business. We're proud to support initiatives like the H‑E‑B Food Bank Assistance Program, our annual Feast of Sharing holiday dinners, and the Spirit of H‑E‑B trailer that provides on‑site relief in areas devastated by natural disasters.

It's our way of saying thank you for allowing us to be your neighbor. We call it H‑E‑B's Spirit of Giving. In this spirit, we have contributed five percent of pre‑tax earnings to public and charitable programs since the 1930s.

Learn more about how we give back here.


Our Commitment to Sustainability


We’re committed to protecting and providing the best Texas has to offer. Our facilities are designed to save energy and reuse materials, we’re reducing harmful pollutants and conserving natural resources, and we’ve been recognized as one of the best in the U.S. for safety and emission reductions.

We believe that our work to care for the environment not only makes us better neighbors—it helps us serve you better. By being energy efficient and conserving natural resources, we're not only helping the planet, we're also creating savings we can pass on to you in the form of everyday low prices.

But our Pharmacies offer customers so much more, like flu shots, immunizations, and health screenings.The Community Retail Pharmacist has become a vital part of the health-care system. As prescription therapies continue to evolve, so does the potential for Pharmacists in a retail setting to impact the patient's overall well being.

Join Our Team 

 

Have immediate Impact

While some companies promise to solve big, abstract problems, we’re solving big, concrete ones. And if we want to see how we’re doing, all we need to do is walk into one of our stores and ask. Our customers are our neighbors, friends, and family members, and they’ll tell us if we’re not meeting their needs. With over ten million households shopping our stores and buying our products, we have over ten million opportunities to make a difference in someone’s life.

Do real good

Yes, H-E-B sells groceries, but we don’t feed only our customers. In fact, we don’t only feed - we also provide clothing, housing, and disaster relief to our fellow Texans. On top of donating 5% of our pre-tax profits to local charities, we invest heavily in Texas education - $10 million a year to be exact. While this spirit of giving has been codified by leadership, employees throughout the company donate their time and resources to dozens of volunteer opportunities and drives throughout the year.

Broaden your target market

When we say that our target market is Texas, we mean it. We serve everyone, and we also serve alongside everyone. H-E-B employees have different backgrounds and home towns, skill sets and points of view, and these differences are crucial to our success. We’re committed to fostering a diverse workforce and ensuring that every employee feels both seen and heard, because at H-E-B, people matter.

Two Digital Hubs in the Heart of Texas 

 

San Antonio

Just like the stars at night, everything is big and bright in San Antonio. We’ve had the pleasure of calling San Antonio home since we moved our headquarters here in 1985. Our commitment to the city and its people grows every day.

                          

Austin

Texas’ most entrepreneural city is literally listed as the Best Place to Live in the United States, and guess what? H-E-B Digital is listed as one of the Best Places to Work in Austin.

Applications for internships open September 1st and typically close at the end of the month.

We will teach you all of the things they either didn't or couldn't teach you in school with the goal of growing you into a Senior Developer in 4-5 years.
