Retail markets are not looking good. Target dropped a ton in profits. All these people are blaming randy for a terrible quarter when other retailers had much worst results. Maybe Randy is doing something right. The rest of this year is going to be a... — read more

Enough to get me through a month as I search for a new job. I have been looking but I'm working long hours and I am always both short on time and too tired to devote much time to it. If I could afford it I would quit today, but I can't. Honestly, I... — read more
Rumor is the warehouses are starting too really crack down on hours and are forcing full time employees home early.. Who are unionized..
Is there a job that you think is great here? i see a lot of people complaining, admin people, finance, corporate, store, etc. Everyone is unhappy? Is there a job at hy-vee that would make you a happy employee, something that makes sense, pays well... — read more
At least those that joined us. None of them are planning to stay and I say good for them. This is not about not respecting the stores and people who work there. This is about giving people a demotion with a pay cut and calling them stuck-up as-----s... — read more
How many more of these announcements do we have to look forward to before the leadership decides it's enough? Living and working surrounded by uncertainty is not healthy! We're in this mess because of the decisions made by those on top and we're the... — read more
When talking to customers, the most common complaint that they have is that our items are overpriced. Is it really possible that the leadership got the price policies wrong to a degree that long time customers are moving to competitor stores?
Or has everything already become beyond repair and we can only expect it to get worse?
Hy-Vee announces another round of layoffs The Iowa grocer announced Friday that another 57 positions have been eliminated. The most recent layoffs came from the IT, engineering, equipment, real estate, and construction departments. There have... — read more
To those of you who are able to buy stock. The way things are shaking out you don't want to have all your eggs in one basket. Sell some and diversify. Just a word to the wise.
I’ve lost all faith in HyVee leadership. This is the same cr-p we went through right before Covid. I still believed in early 2020 we could fix it and had faith in Randy’s leadership. At this point I have lost faith in Randy’s abilities about getting... — read more
I'm curious, what's your biggest issue with Hy-Vee and what could be done to make your workday better?
How on God's green earth, after coming off record sales during Covid, does HyVee have no money? I'm no financial planner but holy smokes, that's some serious bad management. They definitely have a broken business model.
Well with all of these cut you know HyVee won’t be expanding down south anymore. HyVee is in financial ruins right now. We are just going to focus on the markets we operate in now. With more rounds of cut you can’t help but think this are worst than... — read more
36 more people laid off from IT today, deactivated and walked out in the middle of calls. Still feel safe? It’s only round 3
Hyvee isn’t a bad company to work for. I’d say it’s far from the best company to work for. HyVee used to be a company you would work for part time in high school then end up being a career job because the company would treat you well. Now it’s just a... — read more
Am I the only one that wants to get rid of Lomar?
Anyone else having issues with their Vacation not loading since they went to this garbage Okta app?
Is there anybody who can still honestly say they like their job?
Here's a novel idea for HyVee...hire an outside company to do an employee survey. It would shed some light on what's really going on in their business. I know this would never happen as Randy has too big of an ego to do this. Plus, they would hate... — read more
Employees are the ones who make this company great and who do the work that brings in the money. Treating us like cr-p is shortsighted. Not only is the company losing people to layoffs but now a bunch of employees is leaving because they don't want... — read more
Why doesn’t randy get a job at store level if he thinks it’s not beneath anyone? Let’s start a petition! I’m thinking the dish room! He should work at store level then maybe see how stupid his grandiose ideas are
I don’t know if there is anyone who hasn’t lost faith in our current management. The difference between current management and the one prior to current CEO is really huge and I mean that in a negative sense. I think everyone agrees?
Or believes in Randy and thinks he's doing what's best for the company and not just what's best for him personally? When I look at Glassdoor, he has a 68% approval rating, which means that there are plenty of people who did believe in him. I'd like... — read more
No, things are not great here but after ten years, it's not that easy to just say sc--w it and leave. When I joined HyVee I had high hopes and I thought it was a great fit for me. That turned out to mostly be untrue. So how am I to know the same... — read more
Hey All you Hy-vee folks I left over a year ago, probably the best decision I've made! Hyvee Is not the only grocer in town, or better yet go to a sublet company. Do your research in your area, theres plenty of good company's out there, CnC... — read more
I’m an outsider that works with Hy-Vee, always enjoyed them and hate to see this happen. Things now seem to be getting worse. How bad are the store financials? Are sales down? Foot traffic down? I’m not surprised at the random spending stuff that is... — read more
And I was proven right. Nobody is safe here anymore other than the C-suite. Everybody else should be spending every spare moment to prepare for the worst case scenario - either by finding a new job or tightening the belt and saving to make sure... — read more
DVP's are being demoted to District Store Directors...DSD's are being demoted to store managers...its like Black Wednesday all over again. Randy's latest message was there are 1000 jobs open at retail. They are holding a job fair at the corporate... — read more
Well it’s official HyVee is an unstable company. I’ve spent 20 years with HyVee and currently a store director. I have sacrificed my life for this career choice. I have sacrificed my family for this career choice. I know next year at this time I... — read more
Here comes round 2 of the recent layoffs, yet we have store managers, and other salary people who sit in the office ALL DAY LONG and look at cameras, glad we are paying store managers 100+K to SIT DOWN and watch us like hawks…
Why did they leave? What are they doing now?
I heard something about a career fair for retail, all corporate employees being highly encouraged to attend, and 500 more positions being cut at corporate starting today. Anyone on here impacted?
I'm not saying we don't need to be innovative or adapt to a changing business environment, but we need to move in a direction closer to our core business of selling food and highly consumable household good first and foremost. Trying to sell high end... — read more
As long as Randy is the "acting" CEO of this company it is over. He is building to much debt in time where he should be banking cash. The expansion plans,Wahlbugers, the indy car nonsense,the superbowl commercials,etc. Think about this... many stores... — read more
