Management is great at encouraging you and helping you succeed, hours are great but pay is horrible, you have to beg for a raise or you’ll never get one. Great atmosphere and overall a great job I love meeting several different people and seeing the same faces everyday while building relationships with my customers!
Pros
Atmosphere, management, overall experience
Cons
Low pay, very stressful environment

The company itself is great to work for but, what hurts is the poor management at the store I worked at. I was treated unfairly by coworkers and management in the store. But the district management was great.

The store manager is a joke and he picks his favorite employees and caters to them one said employee gets 55 plus hours a week while some fight for hours. He talked down and degrades employees and even reprimands employees in front of other employees and customers. He dosnt know how to lead, order, communicate or even a t like an adult how he got job is beyond me

I have enjoyed my time at IGA with Houchens Industries. The scope of my job was well within my means to reach each goal while still providing enough of a challenge to keep me driven and focused. The managerial staff and my other coworkers have become my friends. I will be sad to leave this job, but moving from Pineville to Williamsburg has left me no choice.

I would not recommend working for this company. The HR manager and Assistant HR Manager are no longer at the company since I worked there but their replacements shadowed them for a while before they made their exit. I would hope that things have changed but I have no way of knowing. If you get a job here I would consider having a backup. If you are a single income household you would need two or three jobs to stay afloat.
Pros
Esop
Cons
You could go to McDonalds and get more promotional opportunities, increased pay and feel more like you're making a difference in the world.

90% of Employees gossip like high schoolers! Some supervisors are not cut out for leadership. No one listens to constructive criticism or suggestions. But mostly HR is a JOKE!

Its an alright job, just dont think it has good management or flexibility, judgemental managers and don’t appreciate it, they don’t appreciate your work.
Pros
In meat room dont really have to deal with alot of people
Cons
Judgemental managers, not much flexibility, have to clean shave hair net aint a option, even if you have a sensitive skin problem, and break out when you shave.

This company is a diversified company and the duties included a variety of daily duties so you are never bored with your job. The management is very precise and micro managed.

Houchens is a productive place to work which helps employees with an ESOP advantage that is a very important benefit. I worked as a Picker/Packer in the warehouse in Bowling Green, KY which was a fun job where we loaded trucks and had a lot of fun driving the forklifts in the warehouse. We had a lady supervisor who was very nice and always made us do our best in the workplace environment.I wish that I had never quit at this facility because of the good management and benefits.

I like my job. I like majority of the people I work with. But, I don’t get enough hours and the job isn’t dependable. The store is a good place to work.

It was a good job I just couldn't get enough hours that I needed so I had to find a place where I could get better hours. It was a good work environment and everyone was friendly.
