Good and bad, but more good.

Stocker (Former Employee)
Rolling Meadows, IL

ProsI was looking for a job that actually paid me(I had a job where I barely earned anything) and Meijer seemed like an obvious choice. The work itself was pretty easy. I worked for two different stores in two states. In Michigan, I worked for a feminist who I didn't get along with. In Illinois, I worked for a man who respected and and gave me preferential treatment. I got the most hours because of this relationship. The discount is alright but not spectacular. Job security is really good. I transferred from a store in Michigan to a store in Illinois and my store director made it completely painless and totally vouched for me without really even knowing me.

ConsPay is not great. You get small raises after working every 700 hours or so, but it seems like a long ways away at the time. Most Meijer stores are unionized and I don't really care for unions. Union dues take money out of your paycheck but you have the option of having the money you would pay in union dues to go to charity and not belonging to the union.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    They treat you ok in a physically demanding job, and would keep more good people if they paid a decent wage.

    I have been working at Meijer

    Pros: Management seems to care about their employees as a person - It seems like a large… Cons: Physically demanding - the cashier job is actually 2 jobs as you are also the bagger. You are being timed as soon as the 1st… Advice to Senior Management: You have a good concept. You have some really good people working for you. If you paid enough to live on, you would have less… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
