    Current Employee - Deli Representative in San Antonio, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    Special Partner discounts, weekly free, usually "new" items. Flexible Hours. Ability to move up just as fast and much as you want depending on your self motivation. Ability to find where you belong, department wise. Benefits. Partner Bonuses. Free Flu Shot. :) HEB does have a motto. . .(H)ere (E)verything Is (B)etter and Because People Matter.

    Cons

    I don't think there are many cons, except improving on making things that are good and making them great. Noticing the knowledgable partners who do more while questioning and removing other who don't meet that "HEB" standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledging the hard working partners and listening to them when they have something to say.

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

    Pros

    It is a pleasure to work for a company that truly puts "do the right thing" into its decisions. From Partners to customers to suppliers and contractors, HEB thinks about the end game before deciding the strategy.

    Cons

    Retail has its challenges. The customer comes first, we are here to serve. That means that you must find your way to the position that works for your lifestyle. We have everything from carry outs to scientists, we are more than a grocery store. There are positions in Manufacturing, Warehousing, and Transportation as well as Procurement, Research and Development, you name it. Follow your passion, there is probably a spot in this company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy Partners equal happy customers! :)

    I have been working at H E B

    Pros

    HEB is an awesome company to work for. They are very family oriented. There is no limit to what one can do, if they are willing to work hard and show they want to learn. Great pay, great benefits (insurance, 401K, vacations, holidays, etc.) I started part time and made full time very quickly. They are really great for older workers, no discrimination of age or even special needs. They are very caring for their partners & community.. I love my job at HEB and do not look forward to leaving when I retire.

    Cons

    Not in any other states, except Texas & Mexico. I really think they need to expand to Tennessee & Missouri.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, consider opening in other states.
