    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Hy-Vee.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a few positions. A few days later, I received a call asking if I could possibly work in the kitchen instead of the positions I applied for, and was invited for an interview three hours later. We discussed why I think Hy-Vee would be good for me and I received an offer on the spot and took a drug test. Once the results came in, I was invited to orientation in a week.

    I applied online – interviewed at Hy-Vee.

    Interview Details

    Pretty laid back like they already filled the position. They didn't all any serious questions. The job was closed for a week before they called to set up the interviews and then rescheduled because the director had a family situation.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hy-Vee.

    Interview Details

    I contacted the Dietitian intially via e-mail. She responded to me and needed a few days to talk with her Store Director if a 4-month Intern would be acceptable. I was scheduled for an interview, she was very flexible. She asked very basic interview questions (why do you want this position, tell me about a time you were in a difficult situation with co-worker/classmate, ect.)

    Assistant Manager (Full Time) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sioux City, IA
    Anonymous Employee in Sioux City, IA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hy-Vee in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied as an internal candidate through the company intranet (I work on the overnight shift as a stocker). I spoke with my store manager and one of the middle managers as well as my immediate superior before applying, as is store policy. I was called around two weeks later and interviewed that very morning by two middle managers. Overall the interview was quite easy and fairly low pressure. I was asked to describe in detail what I do in my current position, and if I thought I could lead my current department and why. I was also asked the standard strengths and weaknesses questions. I was not offered the position, but I believe that had as much to do with management wanting to keep me on nights with the holidays coming up quickly as it did with my readiness for the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Hy-Vee in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through 2 interviews, one with the HR mgr and one with the department mgr. It was a fairly quick process. I had my first interview the day after I got the call, the second was a day later. I was in paid orientation within the same week I was interviewed. The process did not take long to get me out on the floor training. And they worked around my schedule from my previous employer as I was still working my last two weeks there.
