    I have been working at H E B part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    HEB has always been great with allowing Partners to have a flexible schedule. Very understanding when you need time off. Great pay for any position above a CSA (Bagger) with 2 raises a year! Great store events and even discounts and free items to try weekly!

    Cons

    With 8 years of company experience and qualifications to move up to the corporate side of the company, I can not even get a phone interview when applying for multiple positions in the IT side of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Partners with a lot of company experience (5+ years) should at least get a phone interview when applying for a corporate position if they meet most of the requirements. Company loyalty is huge and you are missing out on some great Partners that have recently graduated by hiring outside of the company.

    I have been working at H E B part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the flexibility, the pay is decent, unless you plan to move up with the company & the 10% discount is fun especially when the company gives free items.

    Cons

    Too much favortism, the service area (cashier, PLAs, CSA,CSR, etc) turnover rate is high. Managers come & go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have held a lower-level position once before please act like it. You are no better than the cashiers, PLAs, CSAs, etc. your title just changed.

    Valued student employee

    Current Employee - HEB Cashier in Katy, TX (US)

    I have been working at H E B part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked at HEB over the summer after high school as a cashier and really loved it as a first part-time job. Since I'm away at college, they let me keep my job and just come in to work a handful of times a year while I visit my parents. I have always felt valued as an employee at HEB. The pay is decent for an entry-level Texas job. The customer service department is extremely well organized which is nice. The 10% discount on HEB items is great. So are the weekly free things. The uniform is flexible enough and allows jeans. They have online scheduling requests and shift postings. Breaks are regular and always given.

    Cons

    It's physical labor and can be very exhausting. They structure raises to miss college students. Cashiering and bagging tears up your hands. There are frequently gross meat leaks that you don't have time to clean up. It's extremely fast paced and easy to get behind. You can't really choose how many hours a week you work. You get notified of your schedule for the week on Friday (3 days notice).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get students in on the raises. Most importantly, focus on the environment and make being environmentally friendly a priority. Recycle. Use less packaging. Focus on eco-bagging to use fewer bags and push reusable bags.
    If you're going to label vegan/vegetarian, make it consistent.
    Eliminate GMOs from your products.
    Expand your natural section beyond supplements.

    Pros

    They will work with you as much as possibe.
    Will listen to your need and feedback.
    Able to move to different departments if one is not to your liking.

    Cons

    Pay is a little low for what you actually work.
    Some customers (at least in my location) are pretty rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a person is working very hard, please dont just give them a pat on the back. Do whatever you can to let him know you and other managemnt know about his work. Also make a note of it when it comes to giving raises. Nothing makes a person happy to see that all his hard work is "paying" off.
