I worked at Hy-Vee part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Work with amazing afternoon crew I loved working with high schoolers and it was a joy to work with the customers not a stressfull job got to kid around lots of times

Cons

The assistant managers were dating each other and so you can always tell there were fights also assistant managers sometimes left early before 11 so you can be left there "alone". The pay wasn't the best

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave your personal life at the door. Stop actting like 14 year olds one minute and then expect the high schoolers to treat you like a proffesional in the next minute.

    I worked at Hy-Vee part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    okay starting wage, work with usually happy customers, full time benefits package is pretty good.

    Cons

    coworkers usually hate their jobs and managers are overbearing. kitchen area is not clean and employees do just enough to get. much standing around gossiping

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make a larger effort to know what your employees are actually doing. I got in trouble even when I was doing my job and others would stand around doing only enough work to get by.

    I have been working at Hy-Vee full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    When I was young Hy-Vee always worked w/ my school schedule. As an adult I've had opportunities to move up in the company. Hy-Vee tries to give their employees at their store promotions before hiring someone outside of the company. So if you stay w/ Hy-Vee you have great chances for advancement.

    Cons

    One of the main downfalls at working at Hy-Vee may be that you work w/ so many types of people, young and old. This sometimes causes friction between coworkers and there is always a tendency for gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a manager, the hardest part was learning to separate myself from my employees. It's hard to switch from being a part-time worker to being a manager. You get used to the way you talk to people as a part-timer and forget that you can't be that same way when you become a manager.
