    Pros

    Customer service experience is great to learn here. Give you a better perspective of customers and how to manage time.

    Cons

    Management does not care enough about the equipment work status to provide the proper care for customers that we serve

    Advice to Management

    Show more compassion

    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...

    Good first time job for high schoolers.

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

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

    Pros

    When I interviewed, GM Sammie had been at this location 1 week since then he has been the best store manager I have ever had, 3 months later and he's still awesome!

    Cons

    My immediate supervisor is kind of a hard "butt" some times, and the district manager visits every week, good for ingles, STRESSFUL for me! As with any other upper management visit the whole store goes uber perfectionist, I just want to do my job the way I do it everyday, cause if I do it the same all the time I never have to worry

    Advice to Management

    Subdepartments... Stop micro managing! Tell ur employees what to do once, twice if you see they missunderstood, then leave them to do their work, if not satisfied with there performance review the results, don't come by every 5 min and say "did you do this", " make sure you do that", "I would do this"..... If you are going to keep interrupting progress and performance then just do it yourself!
    OK that my little rant .... All in all really enjoy my work, CO workers are the best!

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

    Pros

    good coworkers, The big wigs of the company are all really nice(except the lady over Deli, Ms. Mixon, she's awful)

    Cons

    long shifts, they have your work 40 or more hours a week and will never put you on full time, they yell at you, I went home crying many times. Awful place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management because they pick favorites easily and if you do anything slightly wrong(because we are all human so it is bound to happen) they yell at you and do not treat you like a human.

    Pros

    You get the satisfaction of doing a skilled labor job, and you get to learn a lot about various meat products.

    Cons

    You are always in a rush. You have to be nice to unpleasant customers. Your schedule is always changing from week to week. It is very hard work in many other ways too.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know what I'm supposed to say here. I have no advice for anyone in management. I just have to type twenty words anyway I guess.
