    I have been working at H E B full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Culture with coworkers and team is great, they really do feel like family after some time there. HR at my location was fantastic they actually cared about their partners making sure they understood everything and cared for their general well being at work and outside of it.

    Cons

    Like any job you'll get the occasional manager that clearly needs some more management training and some that have left management laziness and authority go to their head. And of course random crazy customers but thats not unexpected in the service industry.

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

    Pros

    HEB pays very well compared to competition. The opportunity to move up within the company is always there if you are motivated enough. HEB's culture is unlike any other company. They are truly devoted to their Partners and it shows from the very top to the bottom.

    Cons

    There are a few old school managers left at HEB that refuse to change as the company has and be open minded. That can make it a miserable experience for those under them when they are being told multiple ways to do their job. And sometimes in order to move up it seems like you have to shake the right hands in order to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the HEB culture and your employees will also!

    Managers play favoritism, I was employed for several years with heb, they have stopped caring about employees and only focus on numbers.

    You develop a close relationship with co workers and higher management. HEB works well with you when you are in school.

    Can be stressful during holidays and season changes. Also when short staffed you have to do more than usual. Some days are harder than others just like any job.
