    I have been working at Ingles Markets full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement is there. Hard work is usually rewarded.

    Cons

    Low pay and constantly expecting more work. Favoritism is a problem. Management is constantly changing within the departments and stores.

    Advice to Management

    There are people in management that should not be there. They are protected by higher ups and it makes it difficult for average employees to respect them.

    Pros

    This position teaches you an amazing amount of customer service skills to be used on and off the sales floor

    Cons

    In retail, there will always be unappreciative customers that will criticize you and make your job harder every once in a while

    Advice to Management

    Improve turnover rate of the sales floor so that people don't have to be trained over and over again

    Pros

    Environment is what you make it. If your friendly & outgoing most coworkers will be. Somewhat flexible schedule, depending on manager. Great experience building job.

    Cons

    Hard to get pay raises. Indecisive pay scale, they bring in new inexperienced workers at higher pay than older more experience ones. Department heads don't have control of departments, store manager does, therefore dept. Heads cant reprimand lazy employees or reward hard working ones. Old school systems. Works every single holiday. Not family oriented .

    Advice to Management

    Pay scale off experience & service, not just to get people in the door. Take care of the hardworking employees & don't baby the lazy ones. Give dept heads more authority on hiring & firing. Update systems, could save on payroll if all departments could inventory & schedule electronically. Rotate holidays off for employees so the same employees aren't working every single holiday, it would help moral

    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

    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.
