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, quality and value. As an employee-owned company, Hy-Vee encourages each of our more than 93,000 employees in more than 285 stores across the Midwest to help guide the company.
Our more than 90 years 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, and the largest single owner is our employees’ retirement plan, The Hy-Vee and Affiliates 401(k) Plan. Every employee is a stakeholder in Hy-Vee’s future and is empowered to make decisions to provide amazing experiences for their customers and coworkers.
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 are committed to 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, is treated with respect and dignity, where our differences are embraced and celebrated.
At Hy-Vee, we look for people who want to be part of something special. People who want to contribute to a culture built on core fundamentals, like friendliness, honesty, caring, dedication, ownership, respect and sincerity. These aren’t just words on a wall. They’re everything to us. They drive us to make a difference – to our customers, our communities, and each other. Every single day. They are behind every smile in every aisle. That’s who we are.
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.
