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

    Pros

    Really great company to work for. Plenty of room to advance so long as you try. One of the best grocery stores to shop around.

    Cons

    Sometimes the CCM's can be a little rude to their employees. I understand they are trying to keep the employees in line but understand that they are human too.

    Current Employee - Store Director in Austin, TX (US)

    I have been working at H E B full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Very progressive company with ample opportunities for promotion if you perform. Training programs are excellent if you have a great trainer. Nice discount card for family purchases.

    Cons

    Over the years the family owned atmosphere has diminished and the environment is political at times. At times promises are made and broken in regards to ongoing training and promotions. Hiring to fill positions from outside the company with very qualified internal applicants can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you make a commitment,stick to it. Be more upfront with your people when it comes to promotional opportunities vs. skirting the issue(s) on why one is not being considered for promotions. The company continues to grow, don;t become another Walmart, stay personable with your Partners.

    Great environment and very flexible schedule for college and high school kids. The managers there are great and make it a fun place to work.
