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

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers. Mostly friendly customers. Willing to work with my schedule. Associates are very friendly and are willing to always help. Hard work is recognized and my department head, merchandiser, and store manager always tell me how appreciated I am.

    Cons

    The only thing I can say is to hold people more accountable for their actions. Sometimes they can be to easy-going. Pay should be higher.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting certain employees take advantage of you. You are doing a great job and don't let criticism upset you.

    Dealing with crazy customers. Strange hours due to switching to PC automated scheduling. NO facial hair unless it is a GIANT Tom Celek style mustache.

    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 part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great w/ working w/your schedule, especially in college. Decent pay for a part time job (I get 9.25). Nice management mostly, good environment overall. My store stays busy so there's always something to do. I love most of my coworkers, from all depts. it's like one big family.

    Cons

    Disorganized management (due to the fact they don't get enough training, they're just thrown out there). We're often shorthanded with our cashiers and baggers. I moved up to bookkeeper shortly after I started, then moved back down about 7 months later due to lack of management hiring help in the office causing me to almost fail my college classes 2 semesters in a row. Long story short I do so much for the store and do whatever needs to be done on the front end, and I've only ever received one thank you & it was the other day from a new CSM. Otherwise, a great job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire plenty enough help. Thoroughly train not only the cashiers/baggers but the new front end management (when you get a new CSM) so the employees under them get things done right and not get mislead. I've seen it happen a lot, and it stresses me out, bc I know how things should be done and I hate not seeing them done right. Also, discipline is a big one. I hate seeing other cashiers/baggers get away with things I wouldn't get away with if I tried them. They need to do their jobs right or go home.

    Pros

    Meeting new people every day

    Cons

    Probably training department managers in a classroom setting instead of just giving a position.

    Advice to Management

    Hire according to people's availabilities rather than working on your availability.

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time

    Pros

    Part-time - management was very good about scheduling around other jobs & responsibilities . Hourly wage for worker coming in with prior experience was great! $2.00 more an hour than beginning employees. Great boss - with consistent feedback on what you are doing well & "suggestions" on what you might do a bit better. A real team environment - with everyone supporting what needs to get done

    Cons

    A bit difficult to snag full time hours (with benefits). Really no other complaints.

    Advice to Management

    More full time positions - with a consistent schedule would be good. There are many loyal - very good cashiers who'd really like Ingle's to be their full time job... Then a person would not have to juggle 2 & 3 part time jobs to " make a living"?!! It may cutdown on turn- over...

    Pros

    When I interviewed, GM Sammie had been at this location 1 week since then he has been the best store manager I have ever had, 3 months later and he's still awesome!

    Cons

    My immediate supervisor is kind of a hard "butt" some times, and the district manager visits every week, good for ingles, STRESSFUL for me! As with any other upper management visit the whole store goes uber perfectionist, I just want to do my job the way I do it everyday, cause if I do it the same all the time I never have to worry

    Advice to Management

    Subdepartments... Stop micro managing! Tell ur employees what to do once, twice if you see they missunderstood, then leave them to do their work, if not satisfied with there performance review the results, don't come by every 5 min and say "did you do this", " make sure you do that", "I would do this"..... If you are going to keep interrupting progress and performance then just do it yourself!
    OK that my little rant .... All in all really enjoy my work, CO workers are the best!
