    Pros

    its a great environment to work in. I have very flexible hours and am able to work whenever I can.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for advancement. After you hit cashier there isn't anywhere else to go for something new.

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

    Pros

    I was essentially given a list of tasks to complete over the course of my shift and left to complete them. The envirnoment was good and the people were friendly as well.

    Cons

    The salary was low, but competitive for the position, but it was difficult to pay for college and an apartment on the salary despite working 30 hours a week. There was also no employee discount

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall a great place to work, but not practical for anybody wanting to work and go to college simultaneously.

    I have been working at Hy-Vee

    Pros

    If you want more hours to work, you can have them. A lot of management is easy to talk too.

    Cons

    Seniority is all that seems to matter, even though management says it doesn't. If you are not older or a full timer you get treated like you don't know what you're doing.

    Current Employee - General Merchandise Clerk in Rock Island, IL

    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Hy Vee for 5yrs Great place to start out as a first job or entering into the grocery business. "My" Department managers were amazing- they worked closely with me for training and taught me a lot as i continued my career here- eventually working on independent assignments/tasks and giving me great confidence. Managers represented great communication skills. I learned exceptional customer service skills, logistic, merchandising and plenty of general grocery knowledge.

    Cons

    Not a lot of team building or recognition from upper management Ex: store director, assistant store director. Not a lot of room for advancement and no raises for work ethic just for how long your work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross train as many employees as you can-
    Store Directors-Have small meetings/incentives/recognition for your loyal/hardworking employees that are not management, be involved.
    Watch out for in store relationships/drama/ and sexual harassment.
