    Very easygoing environment with good coworkers and management. Would be a great second job if someone needed extra money

    Grocery Clerk (Current Employee) Knoxville, TN (US)

    ProsLaid back environment, pay not bad for grocery store work, management is approachable.

    ConsRude customers (although that's everywhere in retail), sometimes difficult to get full time, lots of weekends

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen more stores in the Knoxville, TN area

    Lacking

    Grocery Clerk (Former Employee) Spartanburg, SC (US)

    ProsFlexible hours if you having understanding management.
    Easy transferring to other job openings.

    ConsYou have to lay down the law and guidelines for your hiring, otherwise they will ride you for as long as they possibly can. The pay is pretty horrid for the amount of work. Typical hourly job expectations and restrictions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand people have a life outside of work. Working here as a younger person that isn't in it for much more than a paycheck, it's hard to gain anything useful out of it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Grocery Stocker

    Stock Clerk (Current Employee) Easley, SC (US)

    ProsGood environment and good people to work with. Ample opportunities to get promotions, they are really flexible with your schedule if you are in school.

    ConsScheduling could be hectic and past managers have been known to carry their personal problems to the work area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward the people that are doing their job and extra incentives on holidays would be nice.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good stable work

    Night Stock (Current Employee) Athens, TN (US)

    ProsThis is a retail job with retail hours regardless of what shift or position you work. Ingles offers a stable workplace to learn basic skills or begin a new career. Ingles has a 401k that offers to match 50%. They have worked with me on my scheduling and if I need a weekend off they allow you to switch days with others to make it happen. I read a lot negative reviews about this company...Ingles has a whole is a great company however each location will be ran and operated differently...it.s up to you the employee to make it a good experience.

    ConsAs I mentioned each location is different. Where I'm at the store management needs a reality check. Other than that...no complaints.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's OK and good practice to be a part of your employees personal life. Get to know them...what makes them who they are...they're needs...they're aspirations. Management needs to tend to employees like crops in a garden...The more tending...weeding the better the overall outcome.

    decent job for high schoolers who need spending money until something better comes along

    Service Clerk (Former Employee)

    Prosnothing is really coming to mind.. i guess i had a few interesting conversations with customers. way more rude customers overall though

    Consleadership is bad. manager's quote: "we will hire anyone with two teeth in their head" so naturally the turnover rate is high. you dont always get days off even when you ask well in advance. raises based on seniority not performance so very little incentive to work hard
