fun, fast pace
Baker/Cake Decorator (Former Employee), Burlington, IAAugust 17, 2014
Pros: very flexible hours
Cons: busy schedual
A day at work would include: making sure shelves were filled with product, helping customers, taking orders for customers, and maintaining a clean and safe workplace. This job teaches how to work under pressure. Management is great and very organized. Co-workers are wonderful in every department. The hardest part is staying on track during the busy – more... holidays. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you can meet. – less

Manager Store Operations (Former Employee), Des Moines, IAAugust 8, 2014
A fast paced and exciting work day. I learned an incredible amount of skills and gained much experience in daily operations of high volume grocery stores. The hardest part of the job is balancing work and family/personal time. The most enjoyable part of the job is daily interaction with customers and employees.

Clean and friendly environment
Customer Service (Current Employee), 1601 S. Sycamore Ave.August 5, 2014
A typical day at work consists of answering phone calls, exchanging items, handling dry-cleaning, lottery tickets, postal, etc. I have learned that I catch on very quickly on being taught what to do after seeing an example as well as multi-tasking. Hy-Vee is employee owned and the management is great along with the co-workers. They are very friendly – more... and easy to get along with. The hardest part about the job I would have to say is dealing with customers who complain. The most enjoyable part of working at Hy-Vee is the people. – less

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Davenport, IAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: great people
Cons: unstable schedule
I've always enjoyed the people I have worked with. The Assistant Manager position itself requires constant standing, moving, lifting, and stocking. A very repetitive job. A good company with a good benefits package.

Cool Workplace
Cashier/Stocker (Former Employee), Cedar Falls, IAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: meal discounts, flexible scheduling.
Cons: management, short breaks.
There's no such thing as a "typical day" many variables play into how fast or slow your day will go.
I learned how to deal with customers from all walks of life in many different situations.
Management and the "higher ups" were not necessarily the easiest to get along with nor were they very nice but as long as I was on top of my game had no problems.
Co-Workers – more... are awesome, fun and easy to get along with, I made many good friends.
Hardest part is keeping busy during slow days or periods.
Easiest part is talking to customers, strangers can be nice people! – less

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

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
