West Des Moines, Iowa-based Hy-Ve is seeking to hire 1,000 pharmacy technicians across its eight-state region, as it continues to expand its COVID-19 testing services and prepares for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Hy-Vee is hiring both full- and part-time licensed pharmacy technicians across its more than 270 pharmacies to provide additional support to Hy-Vee pharmacists to care for patients as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to increase demand for health care professionals.

On Nov. 12, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) named Hy-Vee one of its national COVID-19 vaccine providers once the vaccine becomes available. Hy-Vee pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are trained to administer vaccines and will be integral in helping provide access to the COVID-19 vaccine for patients across Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.   

Currently, Hy-Vee is seeing high demand for its free COVID-19 drive-thru testing, which it offers in coordination with its partner eTrueNorth. Hy-Vee continues to expand COVID-19 testing, bringing its total number of testing locations to more than 180. The full list of locations can be found here.

“Right now, there is a critical need for trained pharmacy technicians who can help support our pharmacies and patients as we prepare for the next step in battling this virus,” said Aaron Wiese, Hy-Vee’s EVP of business innovation and chief health officer. “For technicians, this is a great opportunity for them to practice at the top of their license and work for a company that offers amazing benefits, competitive wages, flexible scheduling and job advancement opportunities.”  

In its goal to be the “Best Place to Work in America,” Hy-Vee’s employee benefits include a generous bonus system, life insurance, medical and dental care, prescription drug coverage and short-term disability, as well as a 401(k) match.

In addition to helping with current COVID-19 testing, Hy-Vee pharmacy technicians also serve pharmacies by processing prescriptions, dispensing medications, assisting patients and performing other duties.
