    Pros

    Very easy to work your way up! If your willing to work hard and earn it! If you are lazy you will not get hours.

    Cons

    Some partners do not carry their own weight and most of times you have too carry on additional work. But in the end it works out when our raises come!

    Advice to Management

    Management should show some partners their check stubs to motivate partners to work hard and earn it one day!

    Pros

    Local employment with benefits.

    If you are non-Hispanic, family doesn't matter.

    Pros

    HEB takes VERY good care of their partners. It's a privately owned company, but they allow their partners to participate in a "Partner Stock Plan" so that they may benefit from the company's success. Great retirement and benefits, and employee appreciation is central to their ideology.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems like there are a lot of store performance requirements, called "Vitals," and the upper management gets bonuses and stuff for meeting those. So they push the lower managers and cashiers really hard to get those. It can be a bit much when the managers are overbearing due to trying to meet these made up standards for efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with the partners more. I know there are a lot of them, but many of them feel nervous about approaching you because of the pressure they're under and the perception​ they have about how tough you can be. Earn their trust.
