    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Hy-Vee (Lincoln, NE) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Sit down with the human resources woman, and discuss the details of the job. Also discuss any experience in retail grocery or similar retail fields. She is a very nice and easy woman to talk to. Afterwords you get scheduled for a drug test and sign some consent to being tested for drug form. A very easy pleasant experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any previous experience working in retail grocery   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They don't tell you your wages upfront but they do have very competitive wages. I believe most people start at around 9.00/hr.

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

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Hy-Vee.

    Interview

    Applied online, interviewed with store manager. Offered position. No run around straight forward. Nothing out of a normal interview. When applying online you will be asked questions regarding honesty, team work etc. drug test required. You accept the pay and really can't negotiate. Straight forward answers to my questions when asked. All went well and professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Hy-Vee.

    Interview

    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.
