Great place to work and learn

Food Service Manager (Former Employee)
Northville, MI

I worked at Meijer full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI have no complaints about Meijer, i worked there for 18 years, 8 of those years as a foods manager, the CEO, his brother, and their family, really care about you, and its a nice place. It gave me the skills i needed to go and open my own business.

ConsNone at all, very nice place to work and learn. I highly enjoyed learning and working there. Its a family run business, and they treat you like that as well.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone, keep caring about your people, it really is a good thing

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good company with upper management growing pains

Anonymous (Former Employee)
Saint Charles, IL

I worked at Meijer full-time for more than a year

ProsThe work is not hard. Typical stocking system. They have a lot of potential with things they are trying to accomplish.

ConsUnderplayed for hourly help, a reliability on part time help. Interview was professional and that is the last thing that is with this company

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you say your going to do something to help then do it or say nothing at all.

Overall positive one

Cashier (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Meijer part-time for more than a year

ProsThe team of employees and some managers made for a great environment to work in. Great incentive pay and constant opportunity for raises.

ConsIt is a challenge for employees to grow within the company. Managers played favorites with a few employees. There was a lack of professionalism and inappropriate relationships formed between certain managers and employees.

Meijers was a great place to work.

Cashier (Former Employee)
Warren, MI

I worked at Meijer part-time for less than a year

ProsThe pros for meijer is that there is room to move up with this company if you stay and work hard and stay focus.

ConsThe cons are the hours,and there stay policy. which is, they can ask you to stay at any time before your shift is over rolling over to 4 to five more hours. This was the only part of the job that I did not like. when your scheduled for a time to leave it is very unlikely that you will leave at that time. They don't care if your using public transportation. You will be ask to stay over hours after your shift is done.

Advice to Senior ManagementI advice management to change the stay policy. people have familys at home waiting for them to get home. It is very inconveniencing to people to just out the blue ask some one to stay not just 30mins or so but hours at time.
