    I worked at Meijer part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, open door policy, will work with you on scheduling, room for growth (but not much)

    Cons

    Workload, management strategies, amount of unruly customers that are allowed to have their way

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to give more responsibility to someone (service coordinator or service desk), you should probably also offer them some kind of pay raise.

    I have been working at Meijer part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    A great place to work at. The people that work here are very well mannered and good around customers. The work itself is fun. Getting time off from work is easy since they can adjust schedules of entire crew.

    Cons

    Starting wage is minimum so you only make $8.15ph. GM shifts always change time. You start at different times every day and you don't always work the same days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training needs to be a little more thorough. I was given enough training to get started but there were things that I wasn't shown that I needed to know when helping customers. e.g. how sales in store work, how to apply for mperks and an mcard, and what simplr is.

    Former Employee - Cashier in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Meijer full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Night shift isn't too bad, weekly pay, pretty hard to get fired unless you get caught stealing

    Cons

    getting raises is very slow, not many vacation days, union dues are always going up so getting a raise doesn't even do anything for you, the customers are horrible, management are a bunch of wimps who give in to abusive customers if they yell enough, no extra pay for working night shift, no bonuses ever, employee discount doesn't work on grocery or health and beauty products (most of the items in the store), lots of favoritism going on in management, they keep trying to run the store with fewer and fewer people and then they get mad when stuff doesn't get done because there aren't enough people to do it, nothing gets done when another employee is harassing you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop rewarding customers for their bad behavior and maybe the employees will stay longer than a week

    I have been working at Meijer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Weekly Paycheck.
    Flexible Schedule as long as you are part time.

    Cons

    Training is a joke.
    Not trustworthy management.
    Will take advantage of you.
    Weak Staff
    No communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about your employees again. The company 5 years ago was better to work for then it is now. The training program in place is almost laughable. I used to support the location I work at with hiring friends, spending my money and telling people where I work. Now I don't hire people I know, I take my money else where and I usually am vague where I tell people where I work.
