    I have been working at Hy-Vee full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They teach you the knowledge you need to know about what you want to achieve and makes sure you understand it. They always take care of their employees

    Cons

    You have to rub shoulders to get where you wanna go. Hiring management that only do is walk around and boss people around not even doing what they are suppose to do and giving he job to someone else that not even getting paid to do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Give chance to people trying really hard to move up. No only to people who has a legacy in the company. There are lots of people out there that can do the job better than some other all you have to do is give hem a chance

    I worked at Hy-Vee full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The night stock manager is great. She was always willing to work with me the best she could to help me have a life outside of my job with hours.

    Cons

    It would be nice if cashiers could be allowed water at cash registers.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if cashiers would be allowed to have water at the cash registers.

    I worked at Hy-Vee part-time

    Pros

    Loved the environment, great people to work for and with. Amazing bosses as well. Very Clean and Organized.

    Cons

    Back pain due to long periods of standing. Some upper management were very "clicky".

    Advice to Management

    The new teenagers or staff who are bagging groceries do a very poor job. 9 out of the last 10 times i've unpacked my goods at my home i have found either my bread was at the bottom of a bag topped with heavy items, i have also had chicken put into bags with fresh produce. To top it all off, i have had to come back into the store to pay for about 4 items that were store on the bottom of my basket (which i had clearly not noticed during checkout) and in all honesty i probably didn't notice because i was once again found bagging my own groceries, which i'm assuming was because the gentleman that was "bagging" at the next register was consumed but a mass amount of texts he had just received.

    I worked at Hy-Vee (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people, easy first job. I didn't really like it but I needed real "job experience" not just saying I made a crap ton of money mowing lawns....

    Cons

    I made a whole lot more mowing lawns.... They don't promote intelligence, only years of experience. You have to rub shoulders with management to get moved up.

    Advice to Management

    Value intelligence (or lack there of) of your workforce, and move them accordingly

    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am happy with the store managers I work with as they are professional and friendly.

    Cons

    The starting pay is less than I have earned at previous jobs.

    Advice to Management

    I believe adults with experience who have families should start at a higher rate of pay than minimum wage.

    I worked at Hy-Vee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Customers were awesome. Awesome management on site. Hours were fair. Time off was given anytime needed. Felt like a family.

    Cons

    Main store politics, they thought certain policies would work down at the gas station when they flat out didn't. Pay raises weren't very fair because HR forgot about the offsite gas station employees, had to ask for a raise every year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and always treat your employees like you would like to be treated.
