In 1930, Charles Hyde and David Vredenburg opened a small general store in Beaconsfield, Iowa. That store grew to become Hy-Vee — a company known for excellent service and reasonable prices. As an employee-owned company, Hy-Vee encourages each of our more than 81,000 employees in more than 235 stores over eight states to help guide the company.
Our eight decades of outstanding success are a testament to our employees’ hard work and dedication to the vision of our founders. Today, Hy-Vee is synonymous with quality, variety, value and superior customer service.
Hy-Vee is employee-owned by direct stockholders — officers, store directors and executive staff members — and indirect stockholders, the more than 30,000 Hy-Vee employees who participate in The Hy-Vee and Affiliates 401(k) Plan.
A portion of the matching contributions made by the company to The Hy-Vee and Affiliates 401(k) Plan is directed to the Hy-Vee Stock Fund. This account is the largest shareholder in the company. Every employee is a stakeholder in the company’s future, each with the opportunity to ensure memorable shopping experiences for our customers.
If you want to work for a company where you feel like what you do directly contributes to the company’s success and, by extension, the betterment of your community, we invite you to explore the many career opportunities available at Hy-Vee.
In addition to competitive wages, flexible scheduling, a generous bonus system and a fun, fast-paced work environment, Hy-Vee offers many great benefits to our employee-owners.
At Hy-Vee our people are our strength. We promise “a helpful smile in every aisle” and those smiles can only come from a workforce that is fully engaged and committed to supporting our customers and each other. We will be a company where all employee owners bring their unique perspectives and experiences together to create a truly outstanding experience. With the help of every employee owner, we are building a company where everyone, employees and customers alike, are treated with respect and dignity, where our differences are embraced and celebrated.
At Hy-Vee we don’t look for people who simply want a job; we look for people who proudly exemplify the fundamentals upon which our company was built. These individuals are friendly, helpful, honest, respectful and dedicated. Most importantly, they are proud to join in providing our industry-leading customer service and delivering our brand promise of a helpful smile in every aisle.
It takes strong leadership, teamwork and dedication to serve. If you’re ready to continue serving, we are committed to recruiting you and other veterans, military personnel and family members to our team.
At Hy-Vee, we value the leadership, loyalty, honor and commitment to service inspired through your participation in the military. Those qualities closely align with our company’s core values of being helpful, friendly, honest, dedicated and respectful. Together, these qualities offer a career environment where you can succeed.
We provide members of our team with a comprehensive benefit program as well as the tools and training needed for successful careers at Hy-Vee.
