Depends upon the location. Most staff are friendly. Management not so much. They are young and not really trained well. Lots of micromanaging. Its kind of the good ol boy system. Its who you know to move up. Hard working employees are hardly told they are doing a great job. Raises are once a year and are never commesurate with your amount of hard work- even the lazy people get the same amount. Unorganized with department communication on important sales. Like I said. Depends on location, only up side is benefits for full time employees. And full time jobs are minimal now so hold on to it until you find a more happy spot in life. Good for students though for scholarships. Advancement is difficult unless you want to be an a- hole. Sorry, somewhat disgruntled but it is the truth

At my location (Omaha, NE), most managers are amazing, except for one, who is mean to everyone. They were even rude to my friend who was trying to apply and outright said that they didn't want him.

Narrow field of vision, the only thing that counts is do you make the management feel good about how things are going, not the real operation.

Usually busy, constant work. But great managers, employees.

A lot depends on your location. For the most part, the culture is one of mutual cooperation and consideration or supposed to be, anyway. The work can be fast paced.

Hyvee 是一個福利很好的公司,但近期保險不斷上漲,工時也縮減了不少,讓一些養家的員工再也沒辦府支付他們的帳單,廚房,中餐的員工素質不齊,常常讓好的員工身心疲憊卻沒有得到應有的待遇,主管也是基於私心的優待他們喜歡的員工或是同樣的種族,這是一個不平衡的狀態,公司並沒有保護到基本員工,員工也不知道申訴的管道,就算被欺負了,也只能痛苦地離開.

Depends on the store, but where I worked had lots of favoritism & hostility among management. Usually coworker relationships are good, but managers are always sniping at each other & their staff when things aren't going well. You are likely going to get the run-around if you ask for a raise, promotion, or to be transferred to a new position, unless an upper-manager puts in a good word for you. If you're full-time the pay, benefits, & hours are good.

At my HyVee, (Oakdale MN), co-worker environment is fine. On a larger scale, it's pretty weird. A lot of managers are friends so they help their friends get other high paying jobs. I know a lot of managers come to work earlier and leave late and sometimes help on their days off... I cannot confirm but have heard that most managers go out and party together when they're not working.
