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

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Close to my house

    Cons

    Some bad managers
    Managers at corporate offices seem to call more of the shots than they should (worked in floral, managers over floral would dictate how much we would be sent in flowers then blame us for not selling more than our stores could handle)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those working in special departments like floral, not everything needs to be uniform

    I worked at Ingles Markets full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Staff is hardworking and friendly
    - You never have the same day twice in retail
    - Priceless management experience
    - Usually a great environment unless a district manager passed through

    Cons

    If you're not a man, it's very difficult to progress in this company. This a "good old boys" company through and through. I value my time here for the experience in management that I did learn. I mostly learned how not to handle a team of individuals and to respect my employees. Lack of benefits concerning holidays and how sick pay cane be used were a concern.

    Advice to Management

    Lower your shoulders and value your team members. The people that work hard for so little pay are what keep this company moving.

    Pros

    The environment is very relaxed and focused on patients.

    Cons

    You are in a grocery store and they don't really understand pharmacy as a whole very well. You spend a lot of time educating store managers about things you can and cannot do.

    I have been working at Ingles Markets full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working fulltime in the Meat Department for about 3 months. My Meat Market Manager has been great to work for so far. I have been given 40 plus hours every week from day one. The group of people I work with couldn't get any better.

    Cons

    The biggest issue I have is NOT A SET SCHEDULE!! With 2 kids its hard to not have a set schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Discipline the people When they break the rules and don't do their job don't keep rewarding them.
