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

    Pros

    Entry-level, easy job, almost like free money.
    Resume building job.
    Chance to meet new people and interact with the nice customers.

    Cons

    Terrible pay / raises
    Room for advancement but they prefer to hire from the outside
    Tons of favoritism in the front end from bookkeepers to management.
    Dealing with horrible customers.
    Management doesn't realize the real hard workers in the store but glorify the kids that they like.

    Advice to Management

    Please start paying the hard workers more, stop hiring from the outside to fill better positions.
    When an employee expresses discomfort in their position, change it and let them do something else.

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

    Pros

    Decent hours, and a flexible schedule. It's usually pretty easy work. If you're going to school it is a really good place to work.

    Cons

    No benefits even though you work full time hours. Not really enough pay to support yourself let alone a family. Moving up in the company is easy but the jobs aren't worth the hassle.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so greedy and give full time to those who want it. Get rid of managers that don't have a handle on their jobs. Don't promote people that haven't been there at least a year to management positions.

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

    Pros

    I like the people I work around sometimes.. other times most of them are childish.

    Cons

    UNDERPAID EMPLOYEES, I work in a dept and make 8.25/hr. Cashiers currently make and start out making more than me & i've been there for over a year.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve, you won't be getting many more people who are actually willing to work for what we actually do get from this cheap company.

    I worked at Ingles Markets (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a good experience. I really enjoyed getting to know customers and know the employees that work there. I also enjoyed working in customer service.

    Cons

    I didn't like working on Thanksgiving, christmas eve, or easter. I was a part timer and I wasn't given many hours maybe 4 a week.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have favorites, handle situations fairly, treat employees like you care about them and their future.

    Pros

    The bonuses are good if your at a store that gets one

    Cons

    Understaffed and overworked, no training on job. Every job you take is like being thrown to the wolves. It's not hard but if your not self motivated to work and learn you will fail

    Advice to Management

    Give every employeee a bonus instead of just grocery manager, assistant mgr, co mgr and store manager

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

    Pros

    Ingles is a good place to start to get customer service experience. As a bookkeeper, there is little micro-management. High responsibility position, provides leadership experience.

    Cons

    Very low compensation, overall feeling that ingles corporate does not care much for their employees. Typical retail position, poor hours, holiday work etc.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more reason to perform well. Compensate high-performance employees more while filtering out poor employees. Would result in lower turnover and lower operating costs.
