Customer Service Assistants at H.E.B. do not see much in the way of financial compensation and represent one of the lower-paid positions (about $8.50 on average) at the company.
Years of Experience
Those who have five to nine years of work experience see average pay of $14.36 per hour. Broken down by tenure, the largest share of H.E.B. employees (60 percent) have one to four years of experience and earn approximately $11.01 per hour on average.
When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (about $16.00 per hour) can be spotted in Temple, Texas; San Marcos, Texas ($14.16), Houston, Texas ($13.45), and Corpus Christi, Texas (around $12.50) are the next top-paying cities. High paychecks are not found in Austin, Texas; in fact, at $10.92 it is one of the worst-paid cities.
Certifications and Degrees
Monetary compensation comes to around $15.47 per hour for Pharmacy Technician Certification Board Certifieds, far surpassing the earnings of non-credentialed workers. Employees who have a Bachelor of Business (BB) make the most here, hauling in approximately $17.60 per hour.
When it comes to skills, Retail Pharmacy seems to bolster pay the most; employees who claim proficiency also enjoy a median income of $14.94 per hour. A common skill in H.E.B.'s work force is Customer Service; a majority of survey participants report using it on the job. Employees also tend to know Cash Handling, Customer Relations, and Retail.
Benefits and Perks
Only an eighth of respondents enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Nearly one-half set aside retirement funds in an employer-sponsored 401(k). A majority of respondents have health insurance, and benefits for the larger part of survey participants also include dental insurance. Additional benefits of working here are company store discount, flexible hours, product discounts/affinity benefits, and a subsidized cell phone.
