Dirty stores

Store managers

Store managers will treat their employees like garbage, work you until you die young. There are no raises for salary or hourly employees. Go work elsewhere. One store hired someone with no Hy-Vee experience and gave them a super higher up position... —  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.

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
