Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – September 19, 2017
A typical workload at HyVee is tough. Management doesn't even allow you to drink water while working at your register because they say its "sloppy" but they will stand in front of the store and drink soda and eat returned foods. With given circumstances, breaks will be cut short or not given and management tries to make up for that by giving free food. There will be times when your break could be 20 minutes long and they would interrupt it after 5-10 minutes and have you get back to work. Another issues about break is how they start as soon as you leave your working spot, so if your break is 15 minutes, as soon as you leave your register and it takes 10 minutes to get your lunch and get to the break room, you only have 5 minutes to eat and return to your station before they start paging for you.

I recommend Hyvee to people looking for a flexible, fast paced job. I learned so much from Hyvee, from being social to counting inventory. They are so great about helping you work your way up through the company, they really want you to succeed and grow.
Health and Beauty Department Manager (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – September 19, 2017
My job is packed to the brim with smaller projects and overarching larger goals, as such this job requires a person who can easily multi-task and works well under pressure. However, if you are like me and love the reaction you receive when you make a customer extraordinarily happy then the work is always well worth the reward.
Salad Bar Attendant (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – September 19, 2017
I would cut fruits and vegetables for the next business day. I would maintain the salad bar. I learned to be extremely careful how I would use the knife. I cut myself a few times. The management worked well with me in my hours. A few times I was asked to work outside my normal hours and I almost always was able to work with them. The culture was relaxed. There were time around the holiday when it would get a little crazy. The hardest part was that it was part time. I enjoyed working as a team

Inventory Specialist, Pharmacy (Former Employee) – Marshalltown, IA – September 19, 2017
Each store director sets the tone for the culture of their store and this effects how employees perceive their expected role and opportunities for advancement in the company. Part-time employees are paid a low wage and not eligible for company health insurance. This is a good company for college students or grads to gain management experience that will be useful in future career choices.

Meat Cutter (Former Employee) – Chillicothe, MO – September 17, 2017
Hy-Vee transfers their outdated beef and chickens to the deli to cook for customers. Thought this was wrong so I quit. Transfered brown ground beef for meatloaf and chickens that smelled bad after washing them. Had friends that shopped their and felt guilty Quit and went to work for a more honest company
Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) – Iowa Falls, IA – September 17, 2017
The store I worked at was run terribly which contributed to my poor experience. Their employee turnover rate was pretty high so I was not terribly suprised with the way the store was operated. The culture itself was incredibly uplifting and I found that it was rather enjoyable to help out the customers! The hardest part about the job was dealing with improper management.
Kitchen Helper (Former Employee) – Council Bluffs, IA – September 15, 2017
I got to learn a variety of different skills just from Hyvee. This management is always looking for thing to work on and also a source of positivity. I honestly couldn't have pick a better job to learn and thrive from.
Manager (Current Employee) – Grand Island, NE – September 14, 2017
This company is a great first job and maybe even future job. The pay is good in high school or right after. Although seeing how most of there employees are part time getting high enough up to make good pay is a lot of luck and hard work. As lingv as you keep you head in the right direction and keep your mistakes to a minimal they should take good care of you.
Kitchen (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – September 13, 2017
I think working at hyvee was a really great start for me entering the work force. I think it was a productive job that taught me a lot of new skills such as how to interact with customers and how to really out effort into a job.
