Hy-Vee, headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa, is seeking to hire 2,000 full- and part-time pharmacy technicians to help support its more than 275 pharmacy locations across its eight-state region.

As an added benefit, Hy-Vee is introducing a new pharmacy technician apprenticeship, which prepares pharmacy technicians with the required training and resources to become nationally certified to administer vaccinations such as the COVID-19 vaccine and flu vaccine. The apprenticeship is free for all interested Hy-Vee pharmacy technicians and can be completed in as few as eight months (depending on state requirements) while working in the Hy-Vee Pharmacy.

“The role of pharmacy technicians has never been more integral than today, especially as we prepare for the upcoming flu season and expected authorization of COVID-19 vaccine boosters,” said Kristin Williams, Hy-Vee’s EVP and chief health officer. “Our new apprenticeship program offers the opportunity for pharmacy technicians to advance their experience and career in the pharmacy field and work for a company that offers amazing benefits, competitive wages and flexible scheduling.”

Hy-Vee offers employees benefits that include a bonus system, childcare concierge services, life insurance, medical and dental care, prescription drug coverage and short-term disability, as well as a 401(k) match. Additionally, all employees – both part-time and full-time – receive a 10 percent discount on groceries every day and additional discount opportunities throughout the year, plus the chance for additional holiday pay. Hy-Vee also offers a tuition assistance program that is available for employees and their immediate family members.

Both certified and non-certified Hy-Vee pharmacy technicians can serve pharmacies by processing prescriptions, dispensing medications, assisting patients and more. Interested applicants can visit hy-vee.com to view available technician positions in their area.

Hy-Vee Inc. is an employee-owned corporation operating more than 280 retail stores across eight Midwestern states with sales of $11 billion annually.
