    Pros

    Store location is close to home

    Cons

    If you are a low level employee this is an awful organization. You are forever listed as part time . Absolute no chance to advance. And after starting new employees off at 10 dollars an hour and older ones making less I would say that is crap. Not to mention the old ones are training the higher paid new ones.

    Advice to Management

    Non. because I am sure it would be totally ignored anyway.

    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

    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
