Topics regarding layoffs at Hy-Vee

When did it become acceptable?

I keep hearing coworkers wanting to be laid off so they can collect unemployment. I don’t understand how that can be a better option than having a J-O-B. In my day unemployment was used as a last resort, but it seems to be the “rage” now. I still... —  read more

Treat PT Like c--p

I know PT employees who work more than FT and are treated like c––p. They can't give PT FT status due to hours need cut but they can hire 37 new PT in one week.

How bad is attrition?

I work for another grocery chain and have been thinking of leaving. The attrition rate we have is astronomical due to toxic work environment, sparse pay, employee engagement and other things. Does this company also have high attrition? Can anyone... —  read more 

So much hate

I see so much hate for the company here and it saddens me. Hy-Vee is not perfect, but it's not as bad as some people make it seem to be. I enjoy what I do and I like (most of) the team I work with. Customers are a pain but that’s the price of being... —  read more 

Christmas Bonus Thank You

Thank You to HY-Vee for the Christmas Bonus this year. The 1 week of free Dental, Vision, Long term and short term disability insurance that totaled about $7 will come in handy this year. Also congrats on a record breaking year in sales.

What would you do?

I am at a complete loss here. I had to deal with an abusive customer and when things didn’t get resolved I had to get my manager involved. It totally threw me off because he threw me under the bus. It didn’t matter to him that the customer was... —  read more

This is bad

It’s pretty bad when Wal-Mart just finished a restructure and pay protected everyone for a year to give them time to find a new position. Never thought they would treat employees better than Hy-Vee, but here we are. In fact from what I’ve heard from... —  read more

This is what gets me...

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 


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 

Pay on the back

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. 🤔😲🙄

How are you doing?

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 

HyVee going public???

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 


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 


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

Up in flames...

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
