    I have been working at Ingles Markets part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Short commute, needs something more in-depth to help new employees learn "the ropes" , a dependable mentor would be a blessing.

    Cons

    Unreliable scheduling ie work days. Must get your work hours in around the shifts/days that kids in school say they are available

    Advice to Management

    25 cents per year across the board raises is not much motivation for anyone to want to stay there for any length of time. (Work @ store #91).

    Pros

    I like the work and the people I work with. Full-time is great.

    Cons

    Hard to get pay rase. The work load is over whelming. I have been told you must not want to keep your full-time; or If You don't come in you will go back to part time. Management talks down to you. Makes you chose between family and work. We do every thing asked of us and it's still not good enough.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to be talked to in the same way they would want to be talked to. And realize managers work 70 hours a week because that's their job. I'm not management so my 8hrs a day is enough for me.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, very nice managers. Pay isn't terrible. Promotion from within is possible.

    Cons

    The benefits stink! Have had nothing but trouble with the company that manages benefits. They never seem to get faxes that are sent to them, insurance is very costly, yet doesn't seem to cover anything. Nothing but headaches, when it comes to trying to get anything fixed , whether it be with medical or dental insurance, or flexible spending... Save yourself a lot of headaches and money... Don't get the insurance.
    As far as the bakery department goes, they expect a lot of work done in a very small amount of time. If sales are down, hours are cut dramatically, but the expectation to continue to keep the same amount of product on shelves is still there. As with most places, much is done by a few, while some employees slack and get away with it.
    Management has no idea of time needed to complete certain tasks, so they have a hard time understanding what a reasonable expectation is.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time in the satilite departments, and get an understanding of the time needed to do each task. When hours must be cut, be reasonable with it, and lower the expectations to fit into the time allowed for each employee.
