    I have been working at Meijer full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are many nice customers and some people you work with are fun. There are many areas you can work and learn about.

    Cons

    No communication and very little training. Pay cap out and not many days off, or they deny the ones you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and treat the employees like the hard working people they are. Treat them with respect and they will respect you.

    Pros

    Nice Company to work for. open door policy tops in the industry for implementing new technology and is in a growth spurt.

    Cons

    Retail is very demanding because of sales needs so they have many black out days during the holidays and because of their growth their is not much advancement from inside the company they have been hiring mostly outside of the company for management positions.

    I worked at Meijer

    Pros

    Good Co workers who were fun to work with and made the time go by fast. I was fortunate to have a really nice boss.

    Cons

    Some of the management was overbearing and did not respect the team that I worked with. And the pay, always the pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better so that they stick around for awhile and then you will have more quality of work done for you.

    Former Employee - GM Clerk

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

    Pros

    Minimum Wage, Minimum Hours, Minimum Work, good job for high school students or retirees.

    Cons

    Minimum Wage, Minimum Hours, Minimum Work, 60% turnover rate, "good 'ole boy" promotion system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why should I stick around for 5 or 6 years, making minimum wage, in hopes of getting promoted to find myself still making poverty level wages? I saw cashiers with master's degrees making 9 dollars an hour, should they wait around for a decade before getting their own department?

    I have been working at Meijer full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I live in a smaller community, where the majority of the people are friendly in general. This makes for a nice work environment with co-workers and shoppers too.

    Cons

    The discipline system for attendance seems flawed. Although it is fair and consistent, each employees circumstances vary and the system does not recongize this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exicute team member concerns.
