    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hy-Vee.

    Interview

    The interview was easy, and the interviewer was very friendly. He asked simple questions, nothing too difficult. They were "basic" interview questions. Lookup interview questions ahead of time to prepare and there won't be surprises. Be genuine and friendly yourself and it will be quick and low stress.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hy-Vee (Dubuque, IA).

    Interview

    The interview was really relaxed and comfortable. A lot of people were interviewing that day too, so they had a little process for getting people in and out of interviews. I had to take a drug test as part of the interviewing process.

    Kitchen Staff Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hy-Vee in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy. I didn't have to wait very long after I signed in, I would guess I only waited five minutes, and it was a very simple one-on-one where my interviewer went through the basic questions(why do you want to work at Hy Vee, etc). They then confirm your availability, if you can work any earlier, on holidays, etc. If you make it, you go through a few more tests. If you don't, they tell you why right away and how to improve.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hy-Vee in August 2014.

    Interview

    I went through 2 interviews, one with the HR mgr and one with the department mgr. It was a fairly quick process. I had my first interview the day after I got the call, the second was a day later. I was in paid orientation within the same week I was interviewed. The process did not take long to get me out on the floor training. And they worked around my schedule from my previous employer as I was still working my last two weeks there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hy-Vee.

    Interview

    I applied online for a few positions. A few days later, I received a call asking if I could possibly work in the kitchen instead of the positions I applied for, and was invited for an interview three hours later. We discussed why I think Hy-Vee would be good for me and I received an offer on the spot and took a drug test. Once the results came in, I was invited to orientation in a week.
