    I worked at Hy-Vee part-time

    Pros

    There were always plenty of shifts to pick up. The training provided gave the cashiers plenty of knowledge to work alone with two weeks of starting. For the most part. You were able to get off when requested.

    Cons

    Management was a revolving door.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are very great and everyday has a different challenge. You are empowered to make decisions on your own which is a plus as a manager.

    Cons

    A lot of hours during the week depending on job title. A lot of different jobs other than your own responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is key in any company and plays a vital part in a retail environment. More research needs to be put in place for labor cuts before executing.

    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time

    Pros

    The HyVee that I work for is in Prairie Village, KS. I am a fairly new cashier & I was having a hard time catching on. When my friend was having a very difficult time with his Parkinson's Disease symptoms, I panicked & called in to quit. HR. Mgr Jake called me right back & said I could take some time off to help my friend get stabilized. Then Nick a front end Mgr helped me schedule the best hours for me & hopefully for the store also. A true win/win. All of the front end managers that I work with, the ones that have to run over & fix my mistakes are also awesome! They are the hardest working people I have ever met. They make sure to call us by name, make sure we take a break & thank us at the end of our shift. I also have to say that we have the best customers anywhere. If I am running slow & we don't have an available courtesy clerk, many will step up & sack their own groceries, that happens seldom though because if we get busy the front end managers are happy to step in & sack.

    Cons

    As an employee owned store, even when we are very busy, it makes me smile because I know business is good. Many customers report that we stock items that they are unable to find anywhere else. I love MY HyVee!

    Advice to Management

    Please put up a suggestion box. I would like to see customers who bring in their own bags rewarded.

    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time

    Pros

    People are pleasant. No cliques like in some stores. Managers work right beside regular employees

    Cons

    No clear career paths explained. Like, what jobs come after getting cats etc.

    Advice to Management

    Be more specific as to what employees need to do to get raises, grow with company.

    Pros

    People are relatively nice, pay is better than most other part-time jobs, and ultimately a nice place to work.

    Some of the upper management can sometimes be overbearing/

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your underlings like they're not people.

    I worked at Hy-Vee part-time

    Pros

    You get to start a 401k right off the bat.

    Cons

    The overall system for human resources is outdated. LGBTQ groups are only protected based on store discretion but there is not an overall policy for nondiscrimination.
