    Pros

    Meijer allows for flexible schedules which are good for a college student. Here is also a good place to gain experience with customer service.

    Cons

    Management is lacking in certain aspects, but for part-time employment it's not a bad job. Opportunities to switch departments or stores is sometimes challenging.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Meijer.

    Interview Details

    Everyone was friendly and welcoming, which was what prompted me to want to work there. There is a lot of negativity and gossip which the management does not control. The interview process was not representative of the actual working conditions. I feel mislead that the majority of employees are bitter and sullen, not the work atmosphere I expected from my interview.
