Decent starting job with out of touch upper management
Chinese/Italian Clerk (Current Employee) – Waterloo, IA – July 14, 2018
You come in and hope certain people aren't working, everything else depends on the amount of customers you have to deal with. I learned that managers aren't always good. Management is hit or miss. The people you actually work with can be great people and/or bad workers. The hardest part of the job is the upper management. The most enjoyable part is your coworkers.

Working for Hy-Vee was an enjoyable experience. The employees were helpful and fun to work with, the pay seemed fair for being a grocery store, and If I was able to I would definitely go back to work there.
fair pay, friendly staff, flexible schedule.
on feet for extended period of time, not always time for breaks.

Save your time, energy, hard work, honesty, loyalty, commitment, money, and anything else you can think of. Not worth anyone's time. You wont get anywhere for climbing the hy-vee ladder to earning the right wage. Just a waste.
Overnight Stocker (Former Employee) – Sioux Falls, SD – July 10, 2018
It was a overnight stocker job, so there was not many people that came into the store. I just stocked shelf’s unloaded trucks and eventually was a cashier. They did not really give overtime at all. All in all it was a decent job but could not do overnights anymore did not get to see anyone much.
Got left alone for most of the night
Overnight could not see any family or friends much

Hy-Vee gives the employee plenty of chances to move up. The company has a large variety of jobs ranging from customer service to computer technology. Hy-Vee is an amazing company and has been a staple of my life.
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – Pleasant Hill, IA – July 10, 2018
I got this job when I was 16. It was my first and it was great for that purpose- if you just need some spending money or a supplement to your income. It’s a terrible job to make a living off of. Management promise to deal with the issues you point out, but just ignore them. Will give you hours if you do whatever they want when they want. Not enough pay to deal with the place. Have to ask for yearly raise- and ask repeatedly, if they’ll give it to you at all (I once received a 20 cent raise). Upper management have total disregard for actions of other managers. Awful place to be for a long time.
Cashier and Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee) – Iowa City, IA 52245 – July 8, 2018
This was my first job. It has been a great place to learn about working with people and how the workforce is handled. I enjoy working with the people and the customers, but would like to have a full time job as my life has changed as I have graduated from college.
Courtesy and recently promoted to a Checker (Current Employee) – Savage, MN – July 5, 2018
Hy-Vee is a very good place to work, the employees are practically one big family, everyone is very friendly and supportive. Management is very nice and down-to-earth, they always try to ensure others are doing well. advancement is easy, a friend started as a courtesy with me about 8 months ago, now they are an assistant manager.
$5 employee meals, one big family, easy to talk to higher management.
