Typical as it may be for a former employee of anywhere to bash the place they worked at, I cannot do that with Hy-Vee. I enjoyed working there as everyone was very friendly, not just to me, but to our customers. I worked the salad bar and am a testement to gloved-hand slicing and washing all our vegetables and additions. The soups are delicious, the florists truly care about their trade, even though the girl that worked there was around my age (18 or so). The cashiers were friendly and fast and the prices were good with or without the employee discount.
