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

    Pros

    Employees are called Partners and are treated as such. Management encourages you to grow with company. There are several online training classes that are required each month.

    Cons

    The hours change week to week. As a part-time employee I can work 35-38 hrs for six weeks or so and then hr will drop to 23 hrs for a few weeks

    I worked at H E B part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -easy tasks to learn
    -enough work to keep you busy
    -great first job
    -decent starting pay for a first job
    -potential 50 cent raise every 6 months
    -always hiring
    -99% of partners are very friendly and helpful
    -nondiscriminatory towards disabled, LGBT, or people of color
    -can easily request to try a different position
    -open door policy allowing partners to talk directly to managers any time they aren't in a meeting.
    -easy and relaxed interview

    Cons

    -need to fill other positions sometimes, like PLA
    -service managers come and go a lot, sometimes leaving you stuck with a bad one
    -a good amount of people get injured on the job... usually back or arm injuries. They take care of you and work with you, but if you need more than 12 weeks to recover you have to go on paid leave (1 week per year you've been there) or unpaid leave, for up to 12 weeks (aka you need to quit and find a new job so you can pay bills)

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring friendly hard-working partners, and place more emphasis on safety training so partners don't get hurt as much.

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

    Pros

    Starting pay is higher than starting pay at most other places.

    Cons

    Severe lack of cooperation and involvement from management. Little to no training of how to do your job. My entire department is constantly on the verge of walking out. The ones who won't quit are afraid to talk to HR about problems. HR will file a report, but will immediately tell the manager in question who spoke to them. It makes an environment of fear to report problems.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just walk by the departments and say "Hello" once to your employees. Get involved, speak to them, and ask them how they are doing. Ask them if anything is troubling them. Don't just ask the manager how everything is going, talk to everyone.

    Pros

    There are clear regulations and performance metrics for behavior. It's a customer-oriented business, which leads to friendly interaction with everyone. They have occasional social events for employees like company picnics, provide discounted prices to employees, and a 15 minute break every three hours.

    Cons

    Some employees follow the regulations so closely that it narrows their perception of the business as a whole. Those employees willingly neglect problems that don't fall into their job description even if it's in their power to resolve it.

    Advice to Management

    Mentor employees towards best practices, such as what problems are appropriate to tend to, regardless of whether they are technically in the job description.

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

    Pros

    Great availability, benefits for full & part time employees. Working in retail you get exposed to different situation, you learn how to handle them and take care of the customers.

    Cons

    Difficult to move into corporate, minimal positions available. If you want to be a store leader, great opportunity there. H-E-B is growing, many store leadership & management roles will be available. However, for someone like myself working at store level for nearly 10 years & with a degree corporate jobs within H-E-B are hard to land.
