Pharmacy Careers

As a pharmacist with Hy-Vee, you'll do much more than fill prescriptions. You'll have an opportunity to develop your career in a direction that's rewarding over the long-term — or even a lifetime.

Hy-Vee locationsHy-Vee has the largest number of pharmacies in our eight-state trade area of Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. For more than 40 years, Hy-Vee pharmacists have provided a wide range of patient care and have been empowered to make decisions on how to best provide care. During that time, we have grown to one of the top 20 retail pharmacy chains in the nation.

At Hy-Vee, it's about filling a need for your patient. Focusing on patient counseling, medication management and related wellness issues. It's about being the core of a store health team, while working with more than 800 pharmacists and over 100 dietitians company-wide.

Hy-Vee Pharmacy Scholarship

A Program that Helps You Earn and Learn

Through our Pharmacy Scholarship program, we have helped students earn their degree and start their careers in pharmacy. In fact, over 95% of scholarship recipients who were in the program are now practicing their chosen profession as a Hy-Vee pharmacist.

The Hy-Vee Pharmacy Scholarship Program gives you money toward tuition and valuable experience that can help in the classroom. The program offers up to $16,000 of financial aid toward your pharmacy degree. And, as part of the program, you'll have the opportunity to get practical, hands-on experience in Hy-Vee pharmacies through internship positions during the school year, holiday breaks, and summer vacation.

How the Program Works

You're eligible for the Hy-Vee Pharmacy Scholarship Program if you:

  • Are in one of your last four years at an accredited College of Pharmacy
  • Maintain a minimum of a "C" average
  • Are approved by the Hy-Vee Scholarship Committee
  • If you work full-time for Hy-Vee after you graduate and become a registered pharmacist, your financial aid will be forgiven at the rate of $4000 for each year that you work in our pharmacy.
  • If your employment with Hy-Vee terminates prior to the completion of your obligation, the scholarship then becomes a repayable loan obligation.
