    I have been working at Ingles Markets part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The management (in-store, District, and the CEO) is great. They are caring people who will work with you. I am praised for great customer service and when I do an exceptional job for a specific task. Management makes me feel like I am worth something, and my pay reflects that as well.

    Cons

    The only "con" I can think of is no employee discount.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement is there. Hard work is usually rewarded.

    Low pay and constantly expecting more work. Favoritism is a problem. Management is constantly changing within the departments and stores.

    Advice to Management

    There are people in management that should not be there. They are protected by higher ups and it makes it difficult for average employees to respect them.

    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.

    Stop letting certain employees take advantage of you. You are doing a great job and don't let criticism upset you.
