    Pros

    Meeting new people every day

    Probably training department managers in a classroom setting instead of just giving a position.

    Advice to Management

    Hire according to people's availabilities rather than working on your availability.

    Pros

    Hard to come up with a pro. I guess the best thing I can say is average pay for area.

    Cons

    Pain in the but to get yearly evaluations and raises. Very poor management for store manager down. Assistant manager is okay. Poor performing employees are allowed to stay. Moral is extremely bad. Part time employees work 37.5 hours a week the same as full time with out any benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Give raise on time and stop the bullshitting for a 25 cent raise.

    Fair opportunity to change jobs within company to increase pay.

    Maybe an incentive to learn another language to better communicate with employees

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

    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.

    I worked at Ingles Markets part-time

    Pros

    Part-time - management was very good about scheduling around other jobs & responsibilities . Hourly wage for worker coming in with prior experience was great! $2.00 more an hour than beginning employees. Great boss - with consistent feedback on what you are doing well & "suggestions" on what you might do a bit better. A real team environment - with everyone supporting what needs to get done

    Cons

    A bit difficult to snag full time hours (with benefits). Really no other complaints.

    Advice to Management

    More full time positions - with a consistent schedule would be good. There are many loyal - very good cashiers who'd really like Ingle's to be their full time job... Then a person would not have to juggle 2 & 3 part time jobs to " make a living"?!! It may cutdown on turn- over...

    I worked at Ingles Markets (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good first time job for high schoolers.

    Cons

    Benifits, vacation and sick time, actually getting full time, and if you are a female good luck getting past a CSM.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting personal friends who are mainly males, and listen to employees.
