    I like bagging groceries and the combination of speed and strategy, and they pay well for an entry-level job.

    Not much, but I would prefer it if they had free meals daily instead of only the weekends.

    Easy training good pay. Gave an employee meal too which was nice. Seems like they promote from within had multiple friends start with me, now they are management.

    Cons

    Still in a retail environment. Managers will be overbearing about their “culture”.

    Don’t do it

    Nov 1, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits are good and you’ll be paid highly

    Cons

    If you are salaried or a department manager based on commission Hy-Vee will act like they own you. They expect you to work 70+ hours a week to pick up the slack created by not staffing departments appropriately. They don’t care when you need to be off to take care of a sick child, they just ask what day you’re going to work longer to make it up. I had a pregnant coworker who was expected to work as physically hard as everyone who wasn’t pregnant up to the day she started her maternity leave.
