    I have been working at Ingles Markets full-time (More than 3 years)

    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

    It's a paycheck, as meager as it is.

    Cons

    They expect you to come in sick, they reuse 5 day old chicken salad in that days chicken casserole on the hot bar, just one example of saving company money, they use produce that's going bad to do that days cooking, also saving company money. They like playing favorites and some can have off whenever they want, they want people to work full time hours with no benefits, we do not get our evaluations and raises on time, some run out to smoke a few times a day but if you don't they could care less if you get one ten minute break, they expect people to stay late on a regular basis, though I have and will continue to refuse to do so due to picking up my children from school, and they always complain about someone calling in if they are sick knowing it is technically against company policy to come to work with some illnesses.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the program if you want to keep quality employees!

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