Supportive work environment and great people
HBC Manager (Department Manager) (Current Employee), Omaha, NEJuly 15, 2014
Pros: great work environment and employee culture. mobility is fairly open
Cons: spinning plates everyday, all day. normal customer service pitfalls.
Typically you are doing five things at once while trying to do it all with a smile. I learned a great deal about doing things to the best of my ability and trained with some stellar people who don't get enough credit. I handled problems, concerns, and did my best to train my employees to work the best way they could. management varied between extremely – more... competent and great at service to somewhat competent and somewhat great at service. the hardest parts of my job were trying to identify seemingly non-existent goals and an ever-changing rule book. the best part of my job was going to work with my work family everyday. I would recommend this place to people who need a good option for a stable job with great insurance and a willingness to help you grow into a better employee. – less

Job is never boring
Cashier and Customer Service (Current Employee), Lee's Summit, MOJuly 1, 2014
Pros: great coworkers, flexible scheduling
Cons: hard to advance
A typical day at work for me includes assisting customers, making announcements and cashiering. I have learned many customer service skills, cashiering skills as well as other various skills. I work with some of the best co workers anyone could ask for. Management is pretty decent and flexible with your schedules. That being said, management could also – more... be better, some clearly have no idea what they are doing. The best parts of my job are my coworkers and the customers. The hardest part of my job is also sometimes the customers. It doesn't happen too often but every now and then you get a customer where you can't do anything right and they think its okay to stand there and chew you out about things but, it comes with the territory being a customer oriented business. – less

Very great management and staff. A fun, great place to work!
Food Demonstrator; Cashier (Current Employee), Lincoln, NEJune 29, 2014
Pros: free breaks
Cons: they have very few full time workers and don't let many (like me) go full time.
A typical day at work is honestly what I look forward to the most in my day. It is where I shine. I love interacting with people. I have a big heart and am very customer oriented and I feel that I make each customer feel that they are my only customer of the day. It is not an act, I just have a passion for making a difference. I see that when I do my – more... food sample promotions, what I am selling really flies off the shelf. I talk extensively about what a certain dip can be used for, or what a great bargain something is. I try to feel the customer's pace/vibe and go with it. It is very rewarding! I appear to be a formal lady but then when they talk to me they see I am very down to earth. I get along great with my management and coworkers. I am friends with all of them but maybe 2 or 3. The hardest part of the job is maybe if I have to work with the one girl who we don't mesh together. But I don't let it bother me. The most enjoyable part is the attention I get attracting customers to buy what I am demo-ing. Hy-Vee is a great place to work. – less

Hy-Vee
Kitchen clerk (Former Employee), ShawneeJune 23, 2014
Pros: $5 meals
Cons: no breaks for kitchen workers
I would come in around 2 or 3 and work till close. I would serve customers wanted hot or cold food (I worked in the kitchen) and would clean up along the way. Since we worked with food they were big on keeping the kitchen clean and the process of making food even cleaner. My co-workers were always nice and helpful as long as you went out of your way – more... to make the effort. The toughest part of the job was prepping for big rushes and getting food into the case in a timely manner. The best part of the job was hanging out and talking with co-workers while closing and getting the last bits of cleaning done for the evening. – less

A lively, customer service oriented place to work
CASHIER/STOCKER (Former Employee), Ames, IAJune 13, 2014
Pros: paid lunch breaks, happy people
Cons: excessive smiles, saccharine workplace
I enjoyed working here because of the people. Smiles are overly abundant but the company does emphasizes cleanliness. Although I do feel it is not the best paying job and benefits can be expensive. Paid lunches, a flexible hourly schedule to accommodate peoples lives.

Hy Vee is a good company
Night Stocker (Current Employee), Lees Summit, MOJune 8, 2014
Pros: flexiblilty in the hours
Cons: pay, management sticking to their word, amount of back stock product that is order to the amount that will go on shelf
Hy Vee is a reasonability good company to work for, My typical work day involves replenishing store grocery shelves and helping customer with questions and finding products. management could use some work on the amount of work they expect from individuals in reasonable time frame. Co-workers are good other then the trend to place the rift raft on the – more... night shift – less
