Assistant Department Manager at Hy-Vee
in Ames, IA

What do you like about working at Hy-Vee?

"I like helping each individual customer. I like being able to see my efforts in merchandising reflected in the weekly, monthly, and quarterly sales reports. I like most of the people I work with."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Retail experience helps. Being able to follow simple instructions is necessary. Quick thinking and friendliness are important."

What don't you like about working at Hy-Vee?

"It doesn't feel like a dream job to me. I also don't like working with such a large range of ages. For example, the baggers and checkers up front are as young as 15, and my boss is over 50. I am 22 and it is difficult to form a solid team throughout the store with so many different ages. I also dislike doing practically the exact same thing every week. I sometimes feel that I'm not doing something significant enough or important enough."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"More attention to detail, improve appearance of department and product placement, care more about the department."
