Pros: fun atmosphere, benefits for full time employees, lots of different areas to work in
Cons: part time employees often worked full time hours with no benefits
My time at Hy-Vee was a fun one. I knew how to do everything in that store, so I was often placed in different departments. I would bounce back between being a cashier, grocery bagger, cart getter, night/day stock, Chinese/Italian/salad bar/kitchen worker, bakery, deli, health market, and wine and spirits.
So being as I performed all these tasks, I – more... had to learn all about each department and all the duties I needed to perform for each department.
The management and the co-workers were both great and very helpful when it came to new employees. The atmosphere was fun and exciting.
The hardest part was learning where everything was in the store, this did get easier after learning all departments.
The most enjoyable part I had was when I was on night/day stock. – less
