    I have been working at H E B part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is better than most places and all the employees are friendly and cooperative with one another.

    Cons

    There is not enough hours being given and some shifts may only be for 4 hours sometimes 5. Also many of the baggers will stand in one spot instead of moving around so that they may talk to certain cashiers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved when rush hour comes around as some people may take up to an hour on break without coming back down or go an hour past the time their break is needed.
