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

    Pros

    Pay Rate is very nice, and job duties are not hard at all. They will train you and ensure that you're in good standing with your skill.

    Cons

    Sometimes will be short staffed, and you must be completely fast paced. If you do not complete what needs done when they want it, they will let you know and stay on you until you get to where they want.
