    I have been working at Ingles Markets part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great managers, customers are friendly, nice store,

    Cons

    Hard to get a raise, work every holiday, no christmas bonus, no store discount for employees, mainly about customer service they dont seem to care about employees.

    Advice to Management

    I love all the managers. They do what they are suppose to do. Except they need to stay in office more for when we need loans or cigs.

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy place to work at, flexible hours, relaxed working environment, friendly customers, positive coworkers, and it was a good job that sustained me while I was in a high school.

    Cons

    Didn't challenge me as much as I would of liked it to, the customer service managers were unprofessional (I had two relocated while working there), and it was not somewhere I wanted to stay for longer than a year

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and ability to work various positions if desirable. Fairly laid back.

    Cons

    Low pay and management needs to be more responsible and keep track of things better.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job, keep track of things, and quit gossiping over certain employees and spending your first hour on the clock at Starbucks. This doesn't apply to all managers, but certain ones.

    I worked at Ingles Markets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting place for high school students or people wanting exposure to all different kinds of people.

    Not for your everyday person but can add ample amounts of pros when it comes to learning how to deal with people.

    Cons

    Lower pay in regards to other super markets

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay and focus on customer service

    I worked at Ingles Markets full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Store is closed at night so no customers.

    Cons

    Expected to handle the workload of 3-4 people and you can't clock out until you do. Don't expect any help from co-workers, when their shift is done, they leave whether you need help or not. Overnight management not willing to work with unexpected schedule problems. Worst job I have ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people and not number on a cost analysis spreadsheet. Hire enough people for the job.

    I have been working at Ingles Markets part-time

    Pros

    Majority of co-workers and love seeing my regulars.

    Cons

    Hard to become full time and usually get screwed out of a better position by someone with less experience or lazy. If something goes wrong, managers don't seem to care at all and even make it obvious that they're trying to ignore your complaints, but refuse to ignore a customer.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do your job. Stop hiring lazy people.
