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

    Pros

    Good starting salary and you get to keep tips. Relatively easy job if co-workers want to work as a team.

    Cons

    Understaffed, have to run the entire MarketGrille alone if employees don't want to work. Poor scheduling by management. Don't advertise so a lot of people don't know about the restaurant still.

    Advice to Management

    Post the schedule more than a day before the work week starts. Advertise and you'll actually make some money.

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

    Pros

    Nice work environment, with part-time employee benefits including $5 meals.
    Most managers are young (25 and under) and are great to work with.
    Helping customers on a daily basis is enjoyable

    Cons

    The HR at the time (he was fired) was pretty stubborn at times, and didn't listen to employees all that well.

    Pros

    Teamwork, Quality Leadership, Driven Company

    Cons

    Director is a bit of a micromanager.

    Advice to Management

    Give back to the employees - Free t-shirts as rewards for achievements instead of purchasing.

    Pros

    The people are friendly at Hy-vee. 'A helpful smile in every isle' is not just a saying but words to live by at Hy-vee. Every four months, I receive a bonus.

    Cons

    Working part time, pay is not the best. Little more than minimum wage. None of the stations hold an internist for me to stay.

    Advice to Management

    For better retention of workers, figure out a way to improve the pay of your workers. I can only see two reasons why someone would stay at Hy-vee for an extended length of time; the environment is very good, you like what you are doing for the company.

    Being shorthanded quite often, or people calling in
