Current Employee - Night Stocker  in  Sioux City, IA
Current Employee - Night Stocker in Sioux City, IA

I have been working at Hy-Vee full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

excellent benefits
most managers are good people
very good for a survival job

Cons

many entry level managers are promoted before they are ready and aren't held accountable
on night stock, many coworkers are losers who either don't show up for work or can't do a very simple task to competent levels

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Watch who you hire and promote, your employees can make or break you.

    Current Employee - Night Stocker in Omaha, NE

    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They are one of the few employers to offer part-time benefits *if you qualify*
    Flexible Scheduling *within means*

    Cons

    somewhat stuck in the uniform department (broaches and ribbons required for women to wear with button down shirt)
    Majority of the events/discounted events occur in IA, and don't really move from store to store in the other states it operates in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working on trying to be the best but also try to figure out ways employees can have input on decisions before you make new policies...

    Former Employee - Seafood and Meat Service Clerk  in  Iowa City, IA
    Former Employee - Seafood and Meat Service Clerk in Iowa City, IA

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

    Pros

    You can work your way into a management roll fairly quick. The work is not very stressful. The people you work with are pretty awesome. As a student they worked around my hours extremely well. The working conditions were awesome.

    Cons

    There really isn't many downsides. Just a lot of stocking shelves, and cleaning the meat room. Cleaning everything really. If you don't like blood you probably shouldn't work in the meat department. It could have paid a little better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
