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 you're not caught with your pants down if affected. This will not end at this, mark my words.

Go get fu---d. Tell us, what’s the answer then, more trust in Randy right? The numbers don’t lie pal!
I've been saying that since the last round of layoffs in 2020. Why don't people see this? Start looking now!!! Protect yourself, because this company doesn't care about you!
It's just shows you how incompetent Randy really is. Every other grocery retailer still showed at least a 5% to 10% plus gains over last year for there 4qtr and or 1qtr results and that was before the recent up click in inflation. So if Hy-Vee had a bad qtr where did they go wrong??? They should have been on par or better than everyone else.
My personal opinion is that Hy-Vee forgot what there in business for.....Selling Groceries!!!
They need to get back to there roots.
Not The Best Breakfast that eats up labor not Restaurants that again eat up labor. Not signing up Celebs to promote products or buying a race car and or supporting a race car driver but Selling Groceries at a fair price. Hyvee is just plain and simply over priced on many items other than sale or specials Period. People are only shopping the sales or specials and going elsewhere for there groceries where they are cheaper.
I'm just shaking my head on how Hy-Vee screwed up while everyone else showed Big Gains. I've been in the industry for 35yrs and have connections all across the Nation with all the Major chains and none of the major chains saw a bad 4th and or 1st quarter except Hyvee That should speak Volumes about the current Leadership. INCOMPETENCE
They have no labor law smart lawyers, no union busters like Target or even an actual corporate HR department to speak of. A union vote would be a clean sweep right now. Many have supported the anti-union stance over the years, but times have changed.
It’s all in the employee’s hands now
The bad news is the employees have had enough
The employees deal with the greatest asset which is the customers we serve
The best customer is a return customer
We don’t have that anymore
It’s been 33 years for me, it’s been a long time and it hurts me to think I have to change directions now
I lost 16% of my wage in 2020 , but stayed on
Got the money back this past January
I hope I don’t lose it again ,but I’m prepared if I do
With labor so thin and so many shortcuts being taken,my biggest fear is this
A product being put out that will get people sick, i hope I’m wrong but that’s the direction we are heading
Time will tell
I’m just glad that our greatest gift in life is heaven which doesn’t cost a cent to get into
Take care all and make the best choice for your family
Maybe your employer should keep everyone's best interests in mind. I hate to see the decisions of a handful of people negatively affect 80,000+ people. Or however many employees they have.
Yeah, good luck with that...Hvee employees have no say in anything, anymore. You work in a dictatorship where czar Randy only puts people on the board who are 'yes' people to his agenda, which if you haven't noticed, is wrecking what use to be a well respected company.
Employees of other companies are seeming to have some success with unionizing. Perhaps it's our time too to seek union protection. Reach out to your local UFCW and see what they can do for you.
The company is to bullheaded to listen to any ideas.The autonomy is long gone.Its corporate way or the highway.Five yrs this company will be gone.Ive seen this before as I'm a long time retired person.
Unions are the only protection
Maybe it would be a better idea to stop the hand-wringing and doom-scrolling and focus on ways you can make positive changes to help your company. I wouldn't want to work with someone like you.
