    I have been working at Hy-Vee full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, good coworkers, flexible schedule (depending on your department head)

    Cons

    Cutting hours. Not enough labor to get the work done that needs to be. This makes employees and customers upset.

    Advice to Management

    You can't run a business based on customer service and keep running labor hours at the bare minimum and expect shelves to stay full and new products to get set. You are driving customers away with empty shelves and long checkout lines.

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

    Pros

    I love the people I work with! I met most of my friends through hyvee, I have learned so many valuable skills. Most employees are helpful and nice and it's run nicely and smoothly. Information is right around the corner.

    Cons

    I hate how management works, I feel below them as if I'm dispensable and replaceable. They can be mean and put you down at time. Defiantly needs a fix on management. Also it's impossible to get fulltime and solid hours and has drove me to search for other jobs because I need stability. Lastly is employee gossip and competitiveness It's cruel and awful to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees where to find information since you guys won't tell us anything but the basics, be nicer to employees and realize we are all human trying to make it.
