I see no one has posted in this community in 2 years... so not sure if Ill get a response, but here goes... anyway...

My name is Scott. I just finished an interview process to be hired on for HEB as a CCM (central checkout manager I believe). No, I do not have the job yet, but it is looking good so far I feel. My question for the community is--simply asked... is HEB a fun place to work? Do the CCMs seem to enjoy their job? What does the pay look like?

Right now I am employed by Target, and I am happy for the most part. So if I am going to leave Target, I want to know a bit more about how HEB employees feel about the company. Thanks in advance.

Tomorrow I'm going to HEB to apply for a job. I do hope they hire me, cause I strongly dislike asking my mom/dad for money.

My question is, what kind of questions do they ask you when they interview you? And what are they looking for when hiring?
Thanks <33

Hi I found this community and thought it was funny HEB had a community. I am a bookkeeper for #477 which is in Buda (just south of Austin). I have been working for HEB for 6 freaking years and Im only 24! I just thought I would work there for 6 months and 4 stores, 7 titles, and 6 years later I'm still here. I started out as a bagger. I then went to cashier, checker trainer, bookkeeper, admin, traffic controller, and business center/lead. One day I will graduate from college and hopefully quit. I am full time and go to school part time at Texas State. I met my boyfriend at work. He worked in the BC when I was the lead. Now he is in loss prevention at Austin #2. I have plenty to bitch about seeing that I have worked here so long. I can also provide assistance for some questions.

ah, they have done it once again. Last night the store was to close at 11pm. I got at 11:30 because our manager in charge decided to tell me to go get baskets at 10:55. Not only was the lot full of baskets, all of the baby carts were out there as well. The previous csa came in at the time she told me to go outside to let her know his pinky was hurting and of course he got to leave home. 3 people were closing and It was 11:20 already and all that was left were the baby carts but that had to be taken 2 at a time through the store since the side doors to the pharmacy were closed already. That's a bitch to do considering there's 10 baby carts in all. So at 11:20, the manager and the two girls that were closing, walked out the store, past me witout saying goodnight mind you and just left me there.

Sure, I understand it's my job. But do they have to be such bastards and not say anything to me, or at least tell me if I'm going to be okay or at least lend out a helping hand. I've heard of other HEB partners helping each other out. But there's none of that here. So at 11:30, john was there, our matience guy and I asked him if I should get mad that they did that or just swallow it up and forget about it. He just told me that they're bastards and that I'm still getting paid. XD! I suppose so, but there's a shortage of caring coworkers at this place. ~_~

Not only that, I asked for fridays off because I have class that day, tutor someone, I get tutored and I have a sorority meeting. The manager that was looking at the schedules at the time, denied to change my availability. >_> He probrarbly thinks I'm going to go out and party out on fridays or something. I don't party as much anymore. I already get two days off, why can't they just put friday and some other day to the list. Anyhow, that's my bitching for the night. Byhe

after the next week or so I will be working in the pharmacy at HEB. yay, I will finally be away from the front-end and almost never will I have to sack groceries!!!!!! In January I will have been working for HEB for five years! Damn, that's a long time. In those five years I have done the following:

Sacker- sacking groceries, picking up carts from the lot, and oh yeah, basically being the cashier's bitch.

Cashier- scanning groceries and sacking them when there is no sacker (which is most of the damn time). this has to be one of the most monotonous jobs in the world

Deli Clerk/Bakery- well, the bakery was a joke, we just threw frozen prepared baked goods into the ovens, we didnt make any of it. slicing deli meat sucked to no end! but hey, at least i wasnt sacking!

Business Center/Customer service- taking bill payments, western union, cashing checks, etc. oh yeah and dealing with people who have complaints that cannot be addressed by the cashier, etc. and answering the phone, "Hancock Center HEB, this is chelsea, how may I direct your call?" "Is this the HEB in Hancock Center?" "Yes, I just said that"

Oh good ol' HEB! I cannot wait till I graduate and can finally quit you!

I worked my first shift in Cosmetics today. The cosmetics manager had wanted me to transfer to her department for a while already, but my manager up front told her she couldn't have me (which i thought was hilarious). So as soon as my manager went on vacation, Amira put me to work a few shifts this week in her department. So I'm not transferring completely, but I can now pick up shifts in cosmetics and service. The same thing happened with gas station a few months back, so I can pick up gas station shifts, too. I just have no clue why Joe won't let me transfer anywhere. He's such a prick.

hey, i just joined this community. i couldn't stop cracking up at the info page.

yes. i do type plu's in my dreams.

i'm a cashier for HEB #136, Harlingen #04. i get decent hours. i usually get at least 25 a week, which is okay with me because i'm a full time student.

i was able to hit 50 hours in one week about two weeks ago because of the scandal at my store. i think it was 12 or 14 people that got fired from my store for stealing money or groceries. pathetic, i know. but all the csa's got moved up and now our store is stuck with crappy cashiers, with the exception of one or two who deserved to get moved up. other than that, the lines are now ten times longer and i have to constantly be shouting, "4048! 6077! 4011! 4663!" every five seconds because they're not smart enough to memorize the frequent plu's. and this one guy is always paging my phone and asking me for plu's, even when he's five registers away. he's so annoying. and working overtime wasn't even worth it because of how much money was taken out of my check. :(

but other than that, i do love working at heb. i've been working there about 10 months now and it's just great. i'll be moving over to business center in a few weeks, i think. i'm not sure if i want to go because dealing with all that money and people's bills isn't too appealing. wow, i can tell this community is gonna be fun. I need a place to vent out my work frustrations. Or just talk about work in general. :D

new system [13 Aug 2004|12:26pm]

kawaii_misa
[ mood | cold ]

I don't know if it's just in our store or I think it's started in San Antonio, but this new system for csa's rocks. Well, I like it and now I just get to be all day inside sacking groceries. I rather do that anyday to baskets. Sure, I'll do baskets when they ask me to but since most of the guys love being outside then inside, I don't think I'll ever get the chance to be outside.

I'm not complaining since I hate texas heat. If none of your stores are trying it it's basically a system where you have walky talkies and there's 2 floaters and they're the ones that do everything. One will put baskets in the mini corrals and if they get filled, he'll call the other floater to come pick them up. And if the inside people need a price check or a carry out, they'll call one of the floaters from the outside and they'll do it. Not only floaters but ccm's have to go do price checks now while they're doing breaks and doing overwrites.

So if you're a floater, you do everything. Now if you're a sacker, you sack. You can't do price checks, get ice for anyone else but your lanes and carry outs. I find that more easier since if we had to do price checks like we did all the time, it'll waste the time of other customers that are waiting and we don't have to finish sacking. I like it, and I know most of our store likes it cept for some of the ccm's. >_> By the way, I hate it when they tell us to not drink a refreshment while we're sacking but they should be an example and not eat candies or drink refreshments in thier little table while thier working. >_>; That's just me. And by now, you all know I bitch a lot =).

I haven't been to this journal for the longest time. Anyhow, I'm just was wondering yesterday why I left Disney for this crap of a job. Ok, it's alright and yes, I've finally been promoted to cashier but!! why does this job still suck to me? Actually, the only real complaints I have about HEB are that they should learn to care for us a little bit more. Well, at least that's how it's at this location. I have sucky ass days don't get me wrong, but yesterday must've been one of the worse days I've had in a long time. First of all, I was to go in at 5:30 to 11:30. Can't complain about this scedule anymore since I hate mornings due to the texas heat. Anyhow, one of our ccm's called me at 10am in the morning, woke me up and asked if I can go in earlier at 3:30. Sure, I have no problem with that. I did just sleep at 7am but that's cool, I still have some time to sleep in a few more and what not. I started to get these really bad stomach aches and my best friend decided to take me across to matamoros to get myself checked out. This was at 1pm and I still had time before I went to work. We got out of the doctors at 2:30 and so I had to go in at 3:30 so it was alright. I got to work and I wanted to eat and have sometime to rest and take my pills with food and whatnot. So I get there and ask the ccm that called me if I can go in at 4pm instead of 3:30 and I explained my ordeal with my stomach and I just wanted to rest and eat and stuff. But he was like well, we're very short right now so just no. WHAT!? UGH! That pissed the fuck out of me. It's bad enough that I agreed to come in at 3:30, the fucker could've at least let me take care of myself before going into work. So yeah, I ended up eating fast, taking the pills and going into work at 3:35 ~_~ Bastards. That's not the only time that happened to me. About 3 months ago, I called in telling them that I had just gotten into a car crash and that I wasn't going to be able to make it and they're like, take some time to rest and come in 3 hours. I was like wtf? Excuse me, I'm not going in period. I didn't jeez!!! Car crash!!? Hello. Anyhow, so yeah, I got into work, started to do baskets and well I went in at 3:30 and stayed my whole shift till 11:30. Or that's what I thought. I ended up staying there in the fucking parking lot collecting baskets till 12:30 because the partner before me didn't pick up that many baskets and guess what, she was able to leave at 11:30. That was the time I was supposed to leave. Noone went out there to check if I needed help and believe me, when 11:30 starts rolling around, it's pretty dead. Partners start to walk around out of thier boxes and start mingling with the other partners. The ccm in charge was also playing around by bouncing some balls to other partners. Noone went to check on me and noone bothered to help me. I was out there for a long time. I suppose it's my fault for not going into the store and bitching at them but oh well, I had a sucky ass day. Lot's of favoritism in this store. Do you all go through this sometimes? Sorry for the long rant. I sure do complain a lot.

>_>!! OH MY FUCKING GOD!!

WOW!! UMMM I really don't know what to say but my curiousity got the best of me and I just knew that there was going to be a community for HEB workers. That's just fucked up. Anyhow!! I work at Brownsville #466 as a CSA= DEATH. The bastards have been cutting my hours and I've been having 20 for the whole month. How can I survive with 20?!!! HUH HUH?!! Anyhow, I love this job because I get to get a nice tan while carting baskets all day in the sun >_>. I'm moving to the HEB in austin in about a year, that's if I don't go back to work for Walt Disney World again. Hmmm... tough choice. My name is vanessa and hi!! I'm a HEB DOKR <~~ TOO LAZY TO CHANGE but you all get the poitn. < bah~
