Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think daily about (and implement) Fred Meijer's original values for treatment of customers, suppliers and team members.
  Greet each of your team members by name whenever possible.
Require Team leaders to plan work schedules a week in advance with limited changes.
Management should really work as if they are their teams "FIRST ASSISTANT", management's success is based on the success of those who work for them.

    A typical big box retail job, good for a college student but not much else.

    Pros

    It's a nice job for a student or teen getting there feat wet. The hours were flexible, and working on the sales floor can keep you busy.

    Cons

    It's retail: team leaders with very little creativity or personalities, incompetent or unmotivated co-workers, nasty customers, low pay, no work-life balance, cutting hours, not following through on promises made at the interview, horrible environment: smells, crappy lighting, musiac; dull chores with no mental value, no professional development, no real hope for promotion after a certain level, being looked down by your bosses, it squashes ambition, snuffs out life, dulls the soul and makes one cynical about this fleshy mesh known as humanity, like I said, it's your typical and average retail job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of these days someone from the creative class will finally take control of a retail institution and make it an exciting, enjoyable, dynamic place for talented people to work. When that happens that organization will boom and dominate retail. Unfortunately, retail is driven by a groupthink at the highest level and their result is plain to see everywhere; it's the sheep following the sheep. But one day there will be something new, different, and will change the way retailers think about their relationship with their employees and how that interacts with the customer. My advice to Meijer is: that might as well be you! Get to it.
