    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours
    Good Co-Workers
    Easy to get time off
    Good managers

    Cons

    Disconnect between regular employees and corporate
    Penny pinching (getting cheap items such as flimsy kids cups)
    No policy on large groups coming into the restaurant with little warning
    SECRET DINERS (the check list is unrealistic for serving staff and comes off as pushy to the average diner)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the ground employees. They have a good idea about what customers want since they are working with the customers directly, everday.

    I worked at Hy-Vee part-time

    Pros

    Steady hours and friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Management has no clue what the other shifts are doing, especially when they transition from night to day--a ton of work gets dumped on the night crew and they refused to hire more to help

    I worked at Hy-Vee part-time

    Pros

    Above minimum wage page, I suppose.

    Cons

    Better off calling in last minute or no-call-no-showing over trying to take time off.
    Near zero mobility, zero chance for promotion- the usual stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your part time workers are not convinced by the corporate crap you tell yourselves- we're here for a paycheck. Not because we like our "Hy-Vee Family" or any of that nonsense.

    I have been working at Hy-Vee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family type atmosphere, really care for employees. Excellent growth opportunities for all levels of employment. Excellent benefits, even for part-time employees. Very secure employment atmosphere.

    Cons

    Retail positions, so there are no 9-5 type jobs. Most positions require weekends, long hours and open availability. Some shifts come in as early as 5am, some require staying until 10pm or later.
    Most positions are physically challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Get management on board with training programs for all levels of employment. Continued education and training for members of management. More mentoring and fostering of positive work environments.
