    I have been working at Meijer part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is really friendly and great to work with. The environment is fantastic, and there is a lot of room for promotions. The pay is very decent, and it's not too hard to separate work and life.

    Cons

    Retail is a lot of hours and a lot of holidays. There is also a union that employees are a part of. There are a lot of girls, so sometimes there is a lot of drama and cattiness.

    I worked at Meijer full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, the people, the culture, the management.
    The environment of Team Work, is not just a fun phrase at Meijer, it is the Meijer way. You work in a team for your area, but the entire office is the real Meijer Team.
    Honest values, and a commitment to your customer and quality become a way of life in the Buying Offices as well as the Corporate Headquarters as a whole.

    Cons

    Raises are lower than should be considering the market average for the skills required to work in this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people a little more. Don't let your great talent leave because they desire a higher salary.

    Hank does a great job in leading Meijer, he is a very sensable man whom has a great understanding of the pulse of his company.
