    Nice employees at the store.

    Get with the times. Way more Chiefs and not enough Indians in the stores

    I worked at Hy-Vee full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on what store you are in there is a sense of family within the employees and department managers.
    Hyvee is fast paced and is always something new.

    Cons

    Hyvee does not take care of their employees. If hurt at work HR will undermine your compensation process by lying about time lines and what is needed to be completed. In my experience, the HR in my store was allowed to ask other employees to say that a manager was not hurt at work, thankfully for that manager the employee had some integrity and told the truth.
    Once your worker compensation case is proven to be true HyVee's insurance will delay all payments to doctors, insurance, prescriptions and will not return phone calls. HY-Vee will also delay any treatment that you are supposed to have along with not providing proper insurance information. This will lead to you trying to be reimbursed after having to run everything thru your personal insurance.
    HyVee does not care about its employees and allows HR in stores to make decisions that negate what trained doctors in the best hospitals in the US have dictated in order to try to get out of laying for an injury at work.
    This Is NOT a company that you will want to work for. It does not matter what position you are in, if that store does not have a strong Store Director with integrity you will not be taken care of.
    I loved my job and would have went back in a heartbeat if I could have until HyVee made it impossible and personal.

    Advice to Management

    Your HR managers in stores should be college educated in that field. It is a disgrace that an employee owned company would hire an insurance company that will not take care of their employees and the responsibilities that HyVee is instructed to complete.
    It is also disappointing that HyVee cannot practice what they preach and will let an unqualified HR bully employees and decide on actions that contradict what doctors have reported.
