    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.

    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

    They would work with your schedule and time off but that's about it.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    The people overall were good. Customers are reasonable with demands. I worked the Deli, it was always busy. I was the best deli worker by far but never was allowed over 39.9 hours a week. Immediately went to Publix and got fulltime and more pay..so the chaos did eventually pay off.

    Cons

    Management always looking to put you down, target people to fire voluntarily. Coworkers bad talking each other constantly, lazy people are ok as long as they come in everyday. Culture is mostly people looking for an easy paycheck. When people call out, quit, no call, never once did any manager try to fill the gap..too much work.

    Advice to Management

    Hope you can stay afloat with Publix taking all of your borrowed fake business practices. Most concepts are taken from other longer standing retailers.

    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.
