    AWESOME STORE

    HEB Cashier (Current Employee) Cypress, TX (US)

    ProsGreat staff, great customers, and great atmosphere. Plus great pay. Cashiers start off at $9 an hour . Plus great benefis your partner card gets you great discounts.

    ConsThe main service manager isnt great. He is very rude one moment and trying to play with you the next moment. The managers play favorites.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being judgmental to your employees and stop playing favorites.

    Great hands-on experience

    Plant Maintenance (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX (US)

    ProsVery good company culture, which is reflected in any employee, its mission and core values are the best and standards are the highest . Internship program is great and gives you the opportunity to network with different areas of their industry, not only the ones you are currently working for.

    ConsGrowth in engineering-related careers is very low. Personally, I would like to work in challenging engineering projects in the future.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall everything was great, I have no complaints about it.

    Checker at HEB

    Checker (Former Employee) College Station, TX (US)

    ProsThe management is great. All other employees have the same goal and are focused on providing a good experience for the customer. It is easy to pick up shifts, and there are great perks when it comes to your work ethic.

    ConsVery hard to stand out and move up. However, most times this is a part-time job only, so that may not matter for many people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is great. I wouldn't change a thing

    ProsThey are very flexible with schedules and allow you to pick pretty much any department that offers promotion/raises over time. GOOD PAY

    ConsBeing in customer service is a little daunting but thats just if you work in service.

    Employee Oriented With Decent Pay

    Assistant Service Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsVery friendly workplace
    Better than average pay compared to industry standards
    Fast paced work environment makes shifts go quickly
    Excellent benefits

    ConsMoving forward is difficult until you learn their system
    Forget about holidays and weekends
    Part Time only starting out
    Shifts can fluctuate a lot depending on department anywhere from 0600-midnight.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSend HR managers to stores to ensure Unit Directors and Department Managers are informing partners about the incredible opportunities the company has available. Focus more on internal development of partners who start at the bottom than on external hiring.

    Fast pace and challenging but very rewarding.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX (US)

    ProsThe culture is great and almost everyone is very friendly. The company wants to help make you succeed and give you great benefits! Exceptional company to work for. HEB is really going places and making big impacts.

    ConsA bit of a workaholic culture. At least in my department, it seems like the higher up you are, the more hours you work.
