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 move on and stop clinging to a dead carcass, it is never coming back. I knew there was a problem when employees used derogatory terms to refer to Hy-Vee, and I do not know a single person that works there that is happy or likes it, they are there because they have no choice. Managment is terrible and everything about Hy-Vee is just going up in flames.
Sounds like you were just at a sh–ty store or were a sh–ty employee. Heads up, if your a sh–ty employee you will be treated as such.
