Advice to ManagementAdvice

treat distribution center employees better to slow down turnover and cost savings, expand the supply chain to compete with other large retailers

    I worked at Meijer

    Pros

    There is work life balance, most days I left work by 5:30. The salary is decent for the cost of living if you come from the outside. I found that people who worked there and worked their way up were paid considerably less than people they were bringing in from the outside. I enjoyed working with most of my co-workers.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. There is definitely friction between the people who have been with the company since they were 18 and worked their way up from the stores to the corporate office and the people who are being brought in from other companies for their expertise. The people who have worked there for years think things are fine and don't want to change. Some of the managers are intimidated by the new talent the company is bringing in as well. There are people in the organization who do not care for diversity and would rather is be an all caucasion environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep working on creating diversity of culture and thought, get some diversity training for your employees

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Meijer

    Pros

    Nice friendly place to work at, for the most part management is nice, teamwork is done sometimes and it's somewhat fulfilling line of work

    Cons

    They dont pay employees well enough and they give crappy raises, the Union isn't any help if you have a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider raising employees hourly pay, even a few dollars would make a world of a difference for people who are struggling to get by with minimum wage around $7 per hour
