I have been working at Meijer part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The biggest pro is there is a union and you are guaranteed raises. Part-time employees can get medical, dental and vision insurance (which is decent).

Cons

Terrible shift start times "4 a.m. is first shift" in the produce department at the Meijer I work at. They don't have a good reward or incentive program for employees. The extreme emphasis of Micro management of employees is also bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create an actual incentive/ reward program for your employees; also cut back on the amount of Micro management.

    I have been working at Meijer for less than a year

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck. There really aren't any other pros that I can think of at the moment other than the people I work with are friendly.

    Cons

    We went from having a more or less good group of managers to not even having a GM area manager for over a month. You get pulled off of your assigned job to cashier for as many as three hours on a six hour shift. Of course they then expect you to do returns and get your department conditioned and then get on you if you don't. We are always under staffed, sometimes having as few as four cashiers and only two associates to cover the entire GM area. I don't see things improving anytime soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue as to what is really going on in your stores. As it is right now, no one wants to be there.

    Pros

    Easy to get a job there. Employees are friendly.

    Cons

    Absolutely no communication between employees and team leaders. Management will only follow store policy and process if it is in their favor. Beware of favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you treat your employees with respect and have an over all happy demeanor then that will trickle down the line to your customers. You will have happier employees and customers which makes for a better business.
