    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, nice managers, and it’s really easy to understand what your job is in the store. You get to meet new people.

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours. One discount every pay week. No good raises. Nothing really bad here, but I only wish more hours were given.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more hours, even if we’re part time. 20 hours or less is nothing.

    None that I can think to list

    Advice to Management

    Working from the ground up essentially is the plan for all Hy-Vee employees and it does a good job of making good employees.

    I have been working at Hy-Vee part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Flexible scheduling (if you're part time and not cross-trained)
    -Easy to trade or take shifts
    -Affordable health insurance plan
    -Bonuses, even for part time employees (although part time bonuses are small. $20-50 usually)
    -I am trained in several departments, and the work isn't awful. It's often enjoyable.
    -Many of my coworkers are the best friends I have ever had.
    -Some customers can be rude, but most are great people whom you can build a relationship with over the years.

    Cons

    -The worst is the amount of time people are forced to work off of the clock. They're slashing hours, hiring new employees just above minimum wage and expecting management to pick up the slack, but not work above 40 hours a week. Managers at my store in all departments have been working off the clock. Keep in mind the store director's salary is based on profit. If you spend less money on wages, you make more money.
    -Low pay. Sure, they'll start you off above minimum wage, but it's a slow increase from there. Only a handful of people at my store make $14/hour or more.
    -Threats are always made when people try to discuss wages. They're illegal in nature, such as you will get fired if you discuss your wages with coworkers (only legal for management) or if you try to unionize.
    -Very hard to get holidays off, unless in upper management. This may be fine for teenagers, but many people miss holidays with their children as a result.
    -It's very hard to move up. There is little desire to keep up with the future management of Hy-Vee. They know you'll do anything to try to make it up the ladder, and they exploit that without keeping their end of the deal.

    Advice to Management

    -Pay employees for ALL work before you endure another massive lawsuit.
    -Stop trying to operate under "less is more" in terms of labor. We see the numbers. We know we could be operating with the appropriate amount of help. And we know the reason you're lying is to line your pockets.
    -Invest in the future of the company.
