Pharmacy Technicians are awarded the highest paychecks, with compensation nearing about $16.96 per hour on average; Meat Cutters are next on the list, bringing in close to around $16.26, followed by Cake Decorators earning $12.94 and Overnight Stockers making $12.22. 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 ($8.50 on average) at the company.
Years of Experience
For those who claim five to nine years of work experience, pay on average amounts to approximately $14.30 per hour. When we consider tenure, a substantial portion of employees (61 percent) have been working for one to four years and make about $11.53 per hour on average.
When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (approximately $14.16 per hour) can be spotted in San Marcos, Texas; Austin, Texas ($13.98), Waco, Texas ($13.00), and Houston, Texas ($12.73) are the next top-paying cities. Those interested in increasing earning potential should avoid the city of San Antonio, Texas — at around $11.28, salaries are some of the lowest in the country.
Certifications and Degrees
Those lacking certification bring in much lower salaries than OSHA Forklift Operator Certifications, who make $16.00 per hour. The highest-paying degree here is a Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc); H.E.B. awards $12.00 to these degree-holders.
The highest-paying skill to have in this role seems to be Inventory Management; employees claiming this as part of the toolbox earn a median of approximately $16.07 per hour. A garden variety skill at H.E.B. is Customer Service; the greater part of H.E.B.'s people use it regularly. Many workers usually know Cash Handling, Customer Relations, and Retail as well.
Benefits and Perks
Only 7 percent enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Just over two-fifths of workers participate in the company's 401(k) retirement savings plan. A majority of survey participants can count on health insurance, and a majority of employees have dental coverage as a benefit. Some other advantages of working at H.E.B. are company store discount, product discounts/affinity benefits, flexible hours, and tuition reimbursement.
