    Pros

    Great place to work for a young teenager just like me, they treat you well and make you feel welcomed.

    Cons

    Needed to have a set schedule rather than moving me around.

    No advice to management really, it was a good job.

    Pros

    Great core values with gaining an understanding of what it take to make that place run on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    After completing daily routine, if another department was behind we would have to fill in even if our shift was over.

    Advice to Management

    Would liked to see management appreciate the people that set the ton for the day. If your night crew is not motivated then it makes all other department struggle to get on pace.

    Pros

    Hy-vee overall is a great place to work for, especially if you're busy with school. They will work around your schedule and as long as you show up on time and do the simple things they ask then you have nothing to worry about.

    Cons

    The pay isn't the best, but raises come every 3-6 months or if you simply get a complement from a customer.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give to management at this time, keep up the good work. If you see an employee do good, don't be afraid to tell the H.R. manager.

    Pros

    There are some great people that work there. As long as you have good assistant managers running the front things go smoothly. It is a lot like a family atmosphere once you've worked there and start to know peoples names.

    Cons

    Upper division management can be a little out of the loop sometimes since they are upstairs most of the day, so when they come down to ask you something, they might not take into consideration how busy you've been.
