    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.

    Pros

    Ingles is a smaller company with 200-250 Stores with just over 100 have a Pharmacy. Due to size they are still young to the pharmacy market which makes them more like an independent Pharmacy. Huge advantage is that people can drop off and shop better than other Grocery chains because they have such a large inventory with a wide variety, and are always adding more.

    Cons

    Along with other chains, and due to diminishing reimbursements from the insurance companies, they have begun to cut tech hours to the bone forcing the Pharmacist to be like a one man band.

    Advice to Management

    The whole idea of the Pharmacy in a grocery store is to "get them in the door", you can't do that if the public thinks that just because you have a drive thru doesn't make it like a McDonalds.
