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

    Pros

    Customers are great
    Main management is wonderful
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Middle Management (Customer Service Managers) are constantly badmouthing employees, trying to make their life miserable, and just all around being rude to their employees

    Advice to Management

    Chill out. You don't work in a high stakes job, it's okay if mistakes happen occasionally, it is no reason to blow up. Oh, and Vincent, stop being such a creep.

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

    Pros

    Short commute, needs something more in-depth to help new employees learn "the ropes" , a dependable mentor would be a blessing.

    Cons

    Unreliable scheduling ie work days. Must get your work hours in around the shifts/days that kids in school say they are available

    Advice to Management

    25 cents per year across the board raises is not much motivation for anyone to want to stay there for any length of time. (Work @ store #91).

    Pros

    I was working here when I was in High School and a little into college. Pay was a little above minimum wage but I didn't need a lot back then. Great Managers. Were very flexible with hours. Overall a positive work enviornment.

    Cons

    On one occasion they needed a replacement for a bookkeeper and the manager told me that they were going to start training me for the job in the following week. A couple of days later I was told the job was given to someone else.

    Advice to Management

    If you tell an employee they are going to get a "promotion/raise" follow through and don't give the job to another employee just because that employee complained about not getting offered the job.
