    I have been working at Ingles Markets part-time

    Pros

    This has been my first and only job so far. I started working here in high school and worked here throughout college and they were great with working with my school schedule.

    Cons

    Considering how long I have been here and how hard I work, I don't get paid enough. I didn't just cashier, and compared to the work load other people do, it's an insult that other people who do half as much as I do get paid more than me. People who call in all the time and pretend like they're working got paid more than I did before I finally got promoted. I helped stock, do inventory, product resets, date checks, and served as a scanning coordinator (what I am now). This is a good job for high schoolers, but not something to make a career out of.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, especially the hard working ones. Don't take them for granted because without them you wouldn't have a business.

    Pros

    well known employer, good hourly jobs and pay but mostly for students just starting out in the workforce or an additional income for those whom need it.

    Cons

    moving slowly in raising their hourly pay up to standards with other competitors,

    Advice to Management

    start raising the pay so you can attract employees other than highschool and college students whom quickly realize that this is a great job starting out but not for those trying to take care of family.

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

    Pros

    I enjoy the responsibility of limited oversight, candid feedback from a very fair management team, opportunity for advancement, and interaction with customers who offer endless opportunities to make a good impression for the company. I always enjoy coming to work, and usually feel very gratified when I leave for the experiences and satisfaction I get from *wanting* to excel.

    Cons

    As with any job, it is very discouraging when other employees do not appreciate their job, or are less committed to the customers' experiences being positive. If management had the opportunity to better motivate people---and the authority to pay for more mature employees, there would be less disparity in work ethic. Youth and excellent physical condition are unspoken requirements to endure at least eight hours standing on concrete floors with a break of only thirty minutes to rest, eat, and handle personal obligations.

    Advice to Management

    Validate and advance the team members who go above and beyond (which my particular store's managers do very well). Do not discourage employees from earning (keyword, "earning") overtime. The most dedicated employees are making the roughly the same income as those who just show up each day to do the minimum required for a check, if pathways to extra income aren't available. I consider this a physically and emotionally demanding job relative to the amount of reimbursement. I work hard for "My Ingle's" because the management gives me validation, hope for advancement, and I feel that they really take an interest in my desire to excel and grow--not just with Ingle's, but in life.

    Pros

    i really don't have anything to say about the company that is good

    Cons

    1. Treated as a 3rd rate person..
    2. was promised advancement and it is being given to 21 year old kid who doesn't know anything about the job...
    3. given nothing for all the hard work and the two years put in with the company..
    4. $.25 cent annual raise is for the birds
    5. Lower and Upper management shows to much favoritism to certain employees, when we all should be treated as equals...
    6. Accused of doing things that are not true (stealing, backstabbing, and the list can go on)
    7. Poor management (department and upper)
    8. poor teamwork ethics

    This list could go on and on....

    Mostly i am leaving cause of management showing way to much favoritism and not promoting good work ethics to its employees

    Advice to Management

    CHANGE! the only way this company will ever move forward...
