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

    Pros

    Friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere.
    Sufficient breaks. Two paid 15s and an unpaid 30.
    Flexible scheduling. Usually three ten hour shifts every week. Half shifts can be arranged.
    You can buy fresh food to eat on your break.

    Cons

    In the winter, trucks can be delayed for 12 hours or more. You may be asked to work during the day.
    The training that you receive is not very consistent. It never comes from a manager and everyone seems to have a different idea of what official policy is.

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

    Pros

    They are great working around people's schedules.
    Everyone is very friendly.
    It's a fast-paced work environment.

    Cons

    Some customers can be rude/harsh and if you don't know how to handle a situation like that the scenario could be difficult to overcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nicer and all of us don't need to be moving around every single second - it's nice to breathe.

    Pros

    Amazing place to work really fun. Managers and coworkers are really nice. Hours are very flexible ,if you were to want vacation there is pretty much a 100% chance you get it. there is never a stale moment there is always something to do.

    Cons

    Wages are not always the best, they tend to hire new employees with higher wages which is very frustration. There are some managers(1) that are rude sometimes and are very opinionated which is very annoying and gets in the way of complete work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there is more than one way to do something the right way!

    Pros

    Bonus checks. Company holiday party. Great vacation/personal day package. Friendly staff. Great opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    It's retail. The customers will unfortunately always be the greatest con, but can often be as great a pro as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not high school guys. The popular employee shouldn't get the better paying job. The harder working one should. Ask the applicants' coworkers as well as the applicants' managers.

    I have been working at Hy-Vee full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay above average, bonus potential, benefits above average, facilities in good repair, online schedule and HR, health care cost reduction for healthy lifestyle, lots of in store benefits

    Cons

    promotion-oriented management, new restaurant venture run by people with little experience in the industry, everyone has some kind of management title, unclear reporting system, "Everyone is accountable to everyone" makes it hard to get anything actually done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    clean up the org chart, hand the restaurant to restaurant people and get out of the way.

    I have been working at Hy-Vee

    Pros

    They are very flexible with availability weather you are a high school student who is in school activities or retired and looking for a part-time job (or anyone in-between). Hy-Vee does a great job of hiring a large range of people (gender, race, ethnicity, ability, & age included) and are a great supporter of diversity. They also provide a positive and friendly work environment where people go out of their way to say "Hi" and ask you how you are doing.

    Cons

    There can be some struggles getting a full-time position due to a small amount of full-time positions available and such high demands for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to really get to know how to do each job in the department areas so you can be more helpful when other managers are not available and urgent customer needs arise.
