    I have been working at H E B full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Totally dominates the market they are in (strong outlook). Takes pride in themselves and the role they serve and in communities. Very flexible work environment with opportunities to grow and write your own ticket if you are good. Extremely good culture dedicated to the customer and the employee (a lot of places don't emphasize the latter). They are quickly evolving beyond the past conservative mindset (which was prevalent in the industry) into more forward thinking, liberal, and eager to change. Medical insurance is quite good (they self insure).

    Cons

    Tends to be very cautious with seeking and adopting new technology. And because the whole organization hasn't matured using modern thinking and ideas, there are some corners of the business that haven't been forced to evolve yet. So leading change in those areas, or through those Leaders, can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Things have come a long way and it is only getting better.

    I worked at H E B full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, friendly workplace culture, and always an opportunity to move.

    Cons

    Managerial support can be lacking sometimes, questionable business moves (specifically in apparel and entertainment department).

    Advice to Management

    Offer more support when the business need is dire. There were many times in the department when overworked partners were needing much-needed help due to understaffing.

    I have been working at H E B part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the managers and co-workers are kind, helpful, and fun to be around. It is interesting interacting with different people including the customers. After three months, you get a VPP card which is 10% off their products, promos/freebies throughout the year, and a free turkey during the holidays.

    Cons

    Part-timers are not guaranteed a specific amount of hours. I have been scheduled anywhere from four hours a week to 29 hours a week. You can't depend on a steady income.
