From what I remember his store was one of the highest producing ones in Iowa too. I think he got bonuses for that and there was the constant pressure to maintain that status.

I worked nights at Hy-vee prior to joining the Air Force. It's not a bad retail job, but at the end of the day, it's still retail. Lots of turnover (people either canned or walk out because they either can't hack it, or they don't get along with management) and the wages are mediocre (unless someone has the fortitude to stick it out 8-10 years and becomes a shift manager).

Hy-Vee is definitely a cut above Walmart, but it's probably a notch below Publix (the Southeast's version of Hy-Vee). Publix is a bit more expensive than Hy-Vee, but the customer experience is unparalleled. Even the part-time high schoolers get compensated considerably better than their Hy-Vee counterparts. There's a sense of pride there that seems to be lacking at Hy-Vee (most of the stores are nice, don't get me wrong, but as a whole Publix is nicer)

In terms of mainstream grocery stores, Wegman's is probably at the very top of the list in my opinion.

Where is Wegman's centered? That's one I've not run across. At first I thought perhaps you meant Woodman's.
Fezzador is right next to me in northern Alabama so he & I both have experience with Publix. It's been ranked as a top notch grocer & I can readily understand that.
Based just east of Tampa Bay, I've got to say that Publix is about the only large scale Florida business venture to have successfully taken hold north of that state.

Wegmans is centered in western NY, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia. When I have business or travel through those areas I generally make a point to stop there. Some sources claim that it is the highest rated grocery chain for employees presently, and tends to get high ratings overall from the public.

I worked at Drug Town years ago, before the store combined into a big Hy-Vee. Not sure if that would be comparable. It was alright -- nothing that stood out as good or bad. Just another retail job. I was young and didn't need benefits like health insurance though, so I don't know how good that was.

That pay for Wal-Mart now is leaps and bounds above Hy-Vee's basic pay though. Wal-Mart's a good place to work for, you just need to get the right store.
