I left at the beginning of the year and here’s what I can tell you about my experience there towards the end of my employment. It felt like I was married to an abusive spouse who kept telling me I’d never have it as good with someone else. No matter... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Hy-Vee
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
Short answer is yes. Discounts, higher pay, free phones, flexible schedules, closed Thanksgiving Day. Everything Hy-Vee offers and more.
It's been a while since we've heard any good news, I think we're due some.
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
Questions for all, we all know there's a job shortage but with Walmart, Target, Costco paying people to comeback to work for 15hr... theres alot to be said about that! Quit waiting for the government to take control over your profits, start now! 15hr... — read more
I'm one of the old-timers here, two decades and counting. I always enjoyed my job and was satisfied with my pay and benefits, until recently. Things seem to be changing around here. It's much less about respecting your employees and much more about... — read more
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
Most stores ive been at the tone of the store has been toxic. They say one thing but act totally different towards employees, there's no training with any of the management systems or RPM , The new rollout for new systems are frustrating and there's... — read more
Are we still wearing them or not. If you're fully vaccinated, what's the point in still wearing them?
Our CEO says it's important to compete with Amazon, Target and Wal-Mart. He wants to be the best place to work in America. The above mentioned companies starting pay is 15 dollars an hour. How about paying us like them if you want to compete with... — read more
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
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
Has anyone heard or has a pharmacist friend affected by recent “market pay cuts” ?
Any news on that?
I've worked for Hy-Vee for more than 25 years. Our current leadership has a vision of being the best place to work. Working for this company was at one time fun and rewarding. Now it's just exhausting and frustrating. We were once a family oriented... — read more
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.
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
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
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
We have the veteran’s day free breakfast on November 11th and I’m wondering if anyone else is looking forward to it? In my area it’s always nice to see vets show up with their pins and hats, active duty in BDUs or dress uniforms etc. I am a veteran... — read more
Probably wasn't a big turn out. Because most of the long term employees was fired back in march
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
Read and heard a few rumors, but I can't find any concrete info.
Yesterday was a hard day for HyVee employees. 84 store directors were either "stepped down", with a 20% pay cut, or allowed to retire. The stores affected will apparently be managed by other, nearby store directors. In addition there appear to... — 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
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
Is it true hy vee have told employees they will get fire if they tell anyone that they have covid 19?
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. 🤔😲🙄
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
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
What are the potential bonus % for meat and produce dept heads?
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
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
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........
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
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
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
