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

    Pros

    - I actually love to grocery shop here
    - You get 10% off of your groceries every pay period (2 weeks)
    - The people who work for this company are great

    Cons

    - Inconsistent scheduling gets tiring when you open and close and work mid day shifts
    - The job itself is pretty bland but good for part time and working and going to school
    - I have been working there for 2 years and have been told I would get a raise but never have

    Advice to Management

    You should shuffle playlists. Working 32-37 hours a week and hearing the same rotation of 12 terrible songs does not help with morralle
