    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers, supportive supervisors and upper level managers

    Cons

    Vacancies for certain positions because of inability to acquire and retain employees can create a demanding and inflexible schedule at times.

    Advice to Management

    Assess the reasons for the high turnover and lack of applicants to create a more attractive and sustainable environment for current and potential employees.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay. When i worked at a smaller store, the job was much more enjoyable. Schedules are always flexible for students. Most Managers are personable and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Should get a pay bump for transferring and if you are college student. When I transferred to a bigger store I expected a better experience, but got a somewhat worse one. Never received any compliments for work done. Expectations weren't set well, so it left me always wondering if I've got enough done. Some managers take their job way too serious. Didn't receive proper training when transferred.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out

    I have been with the company for over a year and I started as busier when business got slow they moved me to the dishroom so I could keep my benefits every time I try to move to another department I'm told know well I appreciate having benefits but I'm a people person and trapped in a box

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    -Ok salary
    -Cheaper health benefits
    -Fun to work with people in your department
    -Company does try and give good customer service

    Cons

    -Upper management is horrendous
    -Constant corporate pressure ( you are always wrong and they are never wrong, ever!)
    -When corporate comes into town, the store goes into a “sky is falling” hysteria.

    -Front end constantly calling departments
    -Losing touch with customers

    Advice to Management

    You need to appreciate your employees more. Its the employees that are working hard on the lowest level that are the reason you have a paycheck.
