Cons
  • Hard to become a full time employee (in 63 reviews)

  • There are not always enough staffing hours available for our department, so the part time people don't get to work very much (in 61 reviews)

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

    Pros

    Good starting pay, easy to get hours, work isn't too bad. All in all it's a good job for someone if you're just taking a break year for college or something like that because of the decent starting pay for someone with 0 experience.

    Cons

    Upper management although some are nice seem very out of touch. Constantly have people calling in sick/leaving early/or just not showing up yet they still don't get fired. Also went from starting out and being hired at part-time/3 nights a week 8 hour shifts to now working 5 nights a week 8 hour shift without getting any status change (still "part time") or add in benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Although some seem to genuinely care about the customer experience there seems to be a lack of care or just plain ignorance to what is truly happening with the staff. Try to get more involved with the staff other than only getting involved when a problem arises.

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

    Pros

    fexible work hours very friendly coworkers and staff easy to get on the job training and lots of good deals

    Cons

    there is always a huge turnover in the staff and it very hard to get rid of people you could kill someone and not get fired

    Advice to Management

    hire better people not just all young people in high school and get rid of all the dead weight it brings people down

    Pros

    Stock large variety of foods
    Good exercise
    Simple and easy - clock in, stock food, clock out, eat, sleep, repeat
    Requires little communication beyond following basic directions
    Enjoyable team environment
    Good first job, especially for high school athletes - one 8 hour shift is like a long distance walk with a lot of lifting

    Cons

    Work is extremely repetitive and can be physically and mentally tiring
    Night shift may take getting used to and may make spending time with family or friends who work during the day difficult

    Advice to Management

    Never give up

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of my coworkers were great
    It was a job that paid money
    Got to work as a team and solo

    Cons

    Management (other than my manager) treated us like pariahs
    Difficult to attain full-time status(and therefore low pay and no benefits)

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people who make your store what it is, and offer more full-time positions.

    Pros

    Mind you this is completely store based, but the people are generally pretty awesome. Also, if you get a kick out of helping people, you will have lots of opportunities to do that. If you are willing to work hard, and show that you will do whats needed for the benefit of the store, you will be treated with a tremendous amount of respect. The bonus program (for full-timers) for our store roughly adds a dollar an hour to your pay according to a recent benefit statement.

    Cons

    Pay. Whether your full-time or part-time. When part-times got their hours reduced due to Obama Care, pay is an even bigger issue. Unless you have ambitions to climb the ranks to be a store director, or run your own department, you will be hard-pressed to see yourself making a career with this company. The part-time bonus program is also pretty weak. Proponents will say thats 35 bucks you didnt have before, but if someone came to me with a check for 35 dollars and told me to care more, I would be offended.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the pay issue...2016 McDonalds will start employees a dollar above state minimum. They are taking steps, Hy-Vee should too.

    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.
