It started out being fun but management has gotten worse over time
Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – Mount Pleasant, IA – September 23, 2018
I started out loving it but then management has really gone downhill,i havent gotten a raise in at least a year and i make way less than id like for being fulltime. My manager wont work with my schedule very well as i close and then open again at least once a week. Definitely a job that is a good job if youre not planning on staying there very long but not a good career...at least at the hyvee i work at
Checker/Cashier (Former Employee) – Cherokee, IA – September 19, 2018
Same duties each day. A lot of small talk, though. I worked evenings and weekends and didn’t really have any problems with management or anything. My body just couldn’t handle standing for 6-8 hours a day.
Great environment for a first job, low pay, minimal advancement opportunities
Cashier, Clerk (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – September 19, 2018
Typical day at work was laid back, easy. Learned great customer service skills. Management was okay. The hardest part of the job was learning all of the different roles. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with those similar in age.
Salad Bar Clerk (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – September 19, 2018
Hy-Vee wastes money on improvements it doesn't need and neglects the real needs of individual stores. People are selected my friends and family for upper mgmt, get sent off and comeback with less common sense that they had before. Absolutely zero communication, unreasonable and increasing labor demands, poor compensation, and hostile work environment. I've been sexually harassed, yelled at, slandered and overworked by mgmt and employees alike.
Dishwasher/Clerk (Current Employee) – Lakeville, MN – September 18, 2018
I would not recommend this store in Lakeville to anyone. It is way to stressful for anyone to work at as well. I had worked at other grocery stores and this store has to be the worst one run I ever worked.
Productive and fun place to work for , cable tv in the breakroom
Courtesy Clerk/Bagger (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – September 17, 2018
I liked working at Hy Vee, I liked the customers and the people I worked with, the pay was good , I got along well with all the store managers and the store director, I enjoyed helping the customers find what they need, a lot of the customers would come back daily so I got to know them fairly well, my job as a courtesy clerk/bagger wasn't too hard, I just had to remember to greet the customer and thank the customer for shopping with Hy Vee, I spent a good deal of the time taking cart full of go backs to the different ailses and I was pretty good at it because I really got accustomed to where every item went. Each day I would go in I would greet my fellow employees in their departments , to sum it up Hy Vee is a great place to work, a freindly atmosphere and I smile can go a long way I learned along the way.
if you work during a holiday you get free meal in the break room
not really any cons to working with Hy Vee it's such a great company to work for
productive, "customers are the number one propriety" mind set and fun (if you end up getting a shift with your friend.)
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Sioux Falls, SD – September 17, 2018
I'd come to work and head straight to the employee room to punch in and put my personal belongs away. Once i'm at the front, a manager would assign me to a register were I would stay for the whole day, til my shift ends. Every once in a while when it would be slow and since they don't want you to just stand there they would give you small tasks to do. Small tasks such as retrieving carts, taking out the garbage, facing the aisles, returning food back on the shelf.. etc..
free birthday lunches, minimal discounts, flexible hours, great managers ( not all, but every once in a while you'd come across a good one
short breaks, standing in one place, rude customers.
Busboy (Former Employee) – Clinton, IA – September 17, 2018
I made some of the best friends I could have asked for on the job. My boss was a sweet lady and manager was more than understanding. It's not a job I'd recommend anyone work as a life-long career, but the people there will look out for you at all times.
