Read and heard a few rumors, but I can't find any concrete info.
Topics regarding layoffs at Hy-Vee
I’ve been with this company for almost 15 years and it has very seldom disappointed me. However, this last year has completely changed that. I’ve seen good, hardworking coworkers being laid off, and extra work loads assigned during the aftermath... — read more
The Hyvee store I have worked at for 7 years has started to show it's "second wave" of job cuts. I was surprised to see they were offering Part Time benefits, I have worked more close to 40 hours a week and never been hired to full-time at any point... — read more
Word must be getting out. What a surprise? A friend who worked for HyVee part-time a couple years ago (left to work at Fareway with better pay and benefits) said she got an email out of the blue asking if she wanted to come back because they... — read more
Another round of layoffs and A class-action lawsuit incoming.
Oh how funny it is that Hy-Vee is handing out masks and not requiring them. They are so far right that they are afraid what Supreme Leader Reynolds would say, do, or take away from the cooperate stockholders that they won’t mess with her. As a... — read more
Did you know that the Chairman of the Board/CEO/President of HyVee, Randy Edeker has ONLY a high school education? Look it up, he is a Graduate of English Valley High School. That’s it. Shouldn’t someone with this many titles and this much... — read more
I retired a few years ago but had a friend text me that they were going to close the service meat departments to cut alot of labor. Has anyone seen this yet in there stores or is this what is comming in September? Glad I'm out and don't have to see... — read more
I like how Randy (in his video last week) says we had the best quarter ever because of the personnel changes that were made at the beginning of the year. No buddy....that's allllll COVID-19. 🤔😲🙄
Ponder me this. Randy announced in his weekly video that beginning September 1 they would offer part-time benefits to employees ONLY. I heard a "rumor" last Friday that more changes are on the horizon starting at the beginning of the year. To... — read more
A lot (including a world-wide pandemic) has gone on since the layoffs/job cuts/reassignments at HyVee in mid-March. It may not change much to talk about it, but just wondering how everyone is doing? Have you found new jobs? If not, how are you... — read more
Ok, HyVee insists - that they aren’t for sale or going bankrupt. Could they be preparing to take HyVee stock public in an IPO (Initial Public Offering on the New York Stock Exchange)??? Mr. Edeker and many of the Board members are most likely at... — read more
Is it true hy vee have told employees they will get fire if they tell anyone that they have covid 19?
What are the potential bonus % for meat and produce dept heads?
Has anyone heard or has a pharmacist friend affected by recent “market pay cuts” ?
We as employees demand YOU practice what YOU preach and we DEMAND you have a mask on in your next week's video. Then we expect YOU to step in our shoes, come stick shelves, ring on register, work in kitchen and meat. Then tell us how much fun it is... — read more
With record sales across the board, HyVee still has not taken care of their employees. All we get is a discount to spend at the stores so they can make more money. We have sold our souls to the company store. Why hasn't HyVee PAID FOR COVID19... — read more
Employees have had enough being forced to wear these. Being with Hy-Vee 20 plus years I am now seeing the stress this has on employees. They are not happy, they are turning on each other. STOP THIS MADNESS
I am so happy I finally decided to leave Hy-Vee. It is absolutely the worst place to work and try to make a life for you. They could care less for you and your family. I no longer shop at Hy-Vee I have switched to aldis and I encourage everyone to... — read more
Hy-Vee is in trouble and thanks to the "Virus" it has been delayed but it's just a matter of time before they file for bankruptcy. Just wait........
My husband had just found out he has to take an $8.00 an hour pay cut and become a stocker after working at a central bakery as Asst. Mgr. This during Coronavirus when they’re making record sales. WTH!? This is what Hy-Vee does to dedicated, hard... — read more
Come on Hy-Vee! Get your act together! Since Covid 19 started, there have been record sales increases company wide. The measly 10% bonus you "handed out" was pathetic. Maybe the top paid employees actually benefited from it? It was a complete joke to... — read more
A notice was posted today in my store that as of Monday April 27th all employees have to wear a face mask , one provided by hyvee or their own. No training, No medical exam. Nothing. This isn't right, it should be my choice not Randy's.
Just curious how stores are dealing with the increased online orders. Noticed one store lacked space and now has a container building for pick-up storage. Full pallets sitting outside of the building. It looks like a mess, not a good first impression... — read more
I was offered cobra insurance after my demotion. Long story short there have been issues filing my paperwork. Every person kept pointing the finger at everyone else. To correct it, I was forced to sign away my cobra insurance. There are still... — read more
I have noticed , in the last week or so, Krogers has been advertising for help needed in many areas in Iowa. Hmmmm......I wonder what is going on? The last I knew they didn't have any stores in Iowa. Come on Randy...enlighten us. What are you up to... — read more
Amid this so called covid-19 pandemic, a company who can't even keep the basics like bread, rice, milk on the shelves is looking to expand curbside meal service via expensive baskets and burgers, while at the same time, bragging about their aisles... — read more
According to my wife who works at Hy-Vee, the shields they have in place for protection are not really adequate for protection from the customers. So once again Hy-Vee doesn't think ahead and ask themselves, is this really protecting our employees or... — read more
If you are aware of stores with employees testing positive for COVID-19, and other employees who may have been exposed are not being notified, please state the store location so state officials can be notified. Do not be afraid to save lives. Failure... — read more
I was hired at Hy-Vee a few years ago and was told I would be the Catering Manager as soon as all the new renovations were complete (they told me two months tops). In the meantime I was doing manager training and checking and other odd jobs to get my... — read more
I thought workplaces were notifying employees of someone was infected. I just found out several people in my department are out for quarantine and no one notified any employees that we might be at risk. Is this okay?
all away! 10% bonus. wow!
Had to laugh when shopping at local store yesterday, they wasted who know how much on these protection "shields" These things are 2 foot wide, cover maybe 10 percent of the checklane. Don't they realize, customers are standing behind the cashier... — read more
Hy-Vee has no vision, never has, but the one time they need to be a follower, they aren't. c'mon give your employees who are risking there health and their families a raise like other grocery retailers, c'mon you know you won't come up with anything... — read more
Has anyone seen the front page of the Sunday Des Moines Register today? March 22 edition.
I see hyvee is now hiring temporary, part time employees. Maybe if they hadn’t “eliminated “ so many experienced, full time employees they wouldn’t have to be hiring right now. Oh wait— they don’t have to spend money on insurance this way. Real... — read more
Whole Foods is giving double overtime to some employees. Costco, Aldis, Amazon. Seriously screw Hy-Vee. I haven’t been working hard at all during this. Saw the store was out of carts, oh well. Haven’t gotten a raise in almost a year. Fellow employees... — read more
What a great jester to reward each front line store level employee for taking the health risk daily !!
