fun place to work
Accounting Coordinator (Current Employee), Marshalltown, IAFebruary 18, 2014
pretty easy going unless the store was busy than most people were in a panic. I learned a lot throughout my career and had a lot of different jobs. I had fun with the people I worked with for the most part and became friends with a lot of people along the way. The hardest part of the job is when people did not communicate with one another. Most enjoyable – more... was the people. – less

Clerk - Part time (Current Employee), Omaha, NEAugust 18, 2013
Meet and greet new and existing customers, various duties each day. From setting up roller grill, preparing food for warmer, replenishing cups, condiments, coffee, stocking coolers. Maintaining restrooms, stocking shelves, cleaning, unloading truck. Waiting on customers and assuring their needs are met.
Learned how to prepare for each days needs, and – more... compromise to keep customers happy.
Working with the team has been a great experience. Love every minute of it.
The hardest part of the job is not being able to secure a full time position with this company.
Most enjoyable: I love being able to move around, greet the customers and keep busy when there aren't any. Always something to do, never a dull moment. – less

This was a fun job. I worked with mostly college and high school students. We sliced and sold various meats and cheeses, sandwiches, and salads.
PT Deli Associate (Former Employee), Ankeny, IAApril 14, 2013
Pros: i like the people i worked with. young people are fun to work with.
Cons: it was physical work. i had my own cleaning business at the time.
I worked part time in the evenings and generally closed. There would be a list of things to be done left by the manager of the deli. I would make sure that the cold case was filled or being filled. I checked the back stock to see if there was enough meat and cheese to slice for the evening. I checked the sandwich bar to see if anything was needed there. – more... I made egg salad when needed and tuna salad. At the end of the night we tore everything down, cleaned/disinfected and put it back together. We cleaned the coolers that held the meats and the ones that held the cheese. We filled the cold case, covered it and turned all the light off. I learned how to delegate jobs to everyone that was working that night, helped at the counter, and made sure everyone had breaks. My co-workers were usually younger, but we always had a good time and they worked hard when we got busy. The hardest part was being on my feet at long periods of time. – less

Been too long to remember it all
Store Shift Manager (Former Employee), Johnston, IAApril 11, 2013
Pros: the people
Cons: i was on salary paid for 45hrs worked 65hrs weekly.
I worked at Hy-Vee when managers were on Salary, they've recently abolished salary pay and have gone to hourly. Not a bad company to work for since then apparently.

Dishwasher/Bus Boy (Former Employee), Altoona, IAOctober 10, 2012
The management for Hy-Vee Food Stores, INC. are either hired directly from outside the company or they are promoted entirely too quickly from within. This was just not a positive experience for me.

HyVee is a very good place for someone to work especially if they are still in school. HyVee makes balancing school work and work easy. They have the best co-workers there with the best work ethics and attitudes.
