    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling!!! As a student youll need this and its great for it. Just expect to be working the nights during school and during summer. Also, usually amazing management. The manager vary like everyone but are usually very nice and are always personable to a degree. Its a very easy job, no matter where you are, and its great for a first job.

    Cons

    1. Midnight shifts. They like them and if you are a teen youre gonna get them, school or not. Make sure if you have school to request them to not schedule ypu and if they continue to, continue to request them not to until they stop. 2. Upper management is usually very vague and doesnt always make good decisions. Although those decisions are usually fixed. 3. Dress. Code. It is *very*strict and if youre someone that likes to personalize youre out of luck. Even non debranding items arent allowed. Some managers are more lienient but expect to be called out for pins, stickers, hair color, chokers, etc.
