    My experience is that hard work will get you noticed at the store level, however it takes real people skills to advance.

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

    Pros

    The culture is a great one, and there is recognition for achievements. The flexibility with scheduling is key to many partners' success, as many stores are open the majority of the day. The opportunity to make an impact in communities, and to be involved with a company with high moral standards is also very important in today's society.

    Cons

    Cons would include low pay and compensation, and unclear expectations at times. Some seem to be celebrated, whiles others are not, and it seems to be a matter of salesman ship to determine which is which.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management is to provide clear and concise feedback to those looking to advance their careers with the company, and to look at internal candidates more often as they are truly the ones who have a solid understanding of the business.

    I worked at H E B full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and decent Pay. The sky is the limit and they will help you which ever way they can to accomplish your career goals. Good place to begin a career in management & leadership.

    Cons

    Hours. Weekend and Holiday business. as a manager I could rarely take time to see my family. It is a work hard work hard environment. they will pat you on the back to say good job when you accomplish a goal and 10 seconds later tell you to do more and be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation for hard work, be more flexible with time off to be with family, and store leaders need to be involved in the departments so you know what's going on in the store before you start pointing fingers and accusing of wrong doing.
