A great place to begin or change careers
Convenience Store Clerk (Current Employee) – Johnston, IA – March 19, 2019
Hy-Vee values diversity in the workplace, and no two days are ever the same. Depending on the position you work, you may be able to have a fixed schedule or work a more flexible rotating schedule. I haven’t worked there long enough to know when or how pay increases are awarded, but Hy-Vee does strive to be competitive with wages. Overtime is generally dependent on your position in the store. Most full time employees and assistant department managers are scheduled 40 hours per week, and only allowed overtime during certain times of the year or on a case by case basis. Department managers and assistant store managers are scheduled for 45 hours per week and are guaranteed at least 5 hours per week of overtime. Hy-Vee offers internships through Hy-Vee University where an employee can explore specific departments and areas of the store while learning the skills necessary to advance into a higher position. Each store has its own culture, and is usually reflective of its store director. That said, there are some really top flight stores to work for and there are some stores where the culture is dysfunctional and mediocre. I joined the Hy-Vee team after spending 6 years in healthcare, and I plan to be there until I retire in 30 years.
Advancement opportunities, internships, great benefits, decent pay, good work/life balance
Generally required to start out part time, getting full time can be a slow process, could be a bit more competitive with starting wage
