Good employees, bad management

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I loved working with some of the people there, but the managers make you feel like you're nothing. It was exhausting very mentally. The main good part was how lenient they were with days off.

Productive and Fun Workplace

I feel valued as an employee at Ingles. The company has handled managing the pharmacy department well since the pandemic. They increased technician labor and pay once our workload was increased due to the vaccine. Management is always available to help if there is a problem.

Incredible Coworkers, Horrible management

The coworkers were incredible, but the management was god-awful. The store manager threatened to fire me multiple times for things that were minor miscommunications and expected me to be constantly perfect. The pay was good, but hours were rare.

Pros

Decent pay, amazing coworkers, break every 5 hours

Cons

minimal benefits, bad hours, horrible management team

Sell your soul.

25 cent raise a year. 30 minute break off the clock. They'll hire some new with less experience than you and pay them more. Doesn't matter if you have been with the company for years. Slim chance of promotion. The distract manager in Greenville County is the rudest person you'll ever meet. They can just do better over all.

Pros

Co Workers.

Cons

Pay, corporate.

Can be very stressful at tmes.

The job I was assigned had alot of interaction with customers.I would see the same people come in on a regular basis.I worked alone and did as I was instructed for over 20 years.Most customers complemented me on the job I was doing.The methods I used to do my job,was part of our training.We learned a variety of safety measures that go along withour employment and how to safely use the chemicals wewere using to perform our jobs. The hardest part of my job was having to keep up with the pace when it became busy. Most of the time I enjoyed meeting the customers and felt a sense of accomplishment.I also, enjoyed talking to most of the employees,most I hadknown over 10 years.All in all, working at Ingles in West Union,SC was a positive experience I will never forget.

Pros

Basic hourly pay to start.( SC.'s rate starts @ $7.25 hr.)

Cons

A very hectic place to work, ; "Little Training" then you're left alone to do the task you're assigned.

No room for advancement or salary increase

Unless you are the managers favorite, you get overlooked and ignored. You are under paid and over worked. I despise working for this store and do not recommend. Great for special needs programs or teenagers but not for anyone serious about beginning or continuing a career.

Pros

Direct deposit is accurate

Cons

Healthcare is high.

Horrible Management and Pay

Managers don't care about you, they force you to work well beyond your scheduled hours then get angry when you have overtime and cut your hours. The pay is abismal for the work they make you do with extremely limited staffing.

Pros

None

Cons

Management, pay, hours, work/life balance

Japer ingles doesnt even diserve 1 star i was being generous

Terrible hours they promised me to work around my dr appointments because I have health problems and now I get yelled at for calling out for appointments. They left 3 of us alone at the deli and expected everything perfect and got mad at the "mess" when they came in. Ofc there was a mess we had like 20 customers and only 3 people

Pros

Water in the breakroom thats it

Cons

Short breaks lack of care non flexibke schedule managment that treats you like garbage, you get accused of lying when you have covid, you have tk do 10 peoples jobs at ince and get yelled at if you stop to take a breather.

Expect to come in early without pay

Does not compensate for extra time put in, yet expected to come in an open early. Favorites are played. Not enough help but expect safety. No time to sit for a lunch break or go to the restroom.

Cons

No lunch breaks
