    I have been working at Meijer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working as the Order Writer gives me a great experience for my career goals

    Cons

    At the store I'm at, there isn't any type of advancement opportunities, they don't put team lead positions in the system for in-store team members to apply

    Advice to Management

    Let team members advance before bringing somebody from out of store. I also feel that a relocation pay would be beneficial to Meijer

    Pros

    Employee discount, getting to talk to customers. You are guaranteed a break every 2 hours (15 minutes for the first two hours then you get your 30 min lunch and then another 15 minute break two hours after that)

    Cons

    Not a set schedule. You can be held over your shift without being asked

    Pros

    Great management, good business model. Plenty of room for advancement if you work hard and have a good attitude.

    Low pay, but room for advancement. The learning opportunities are endless and it's a great place to start if you want to be a pharmacist.

    Keep managing people. It's an all day process.

    The whole place is a pro in my opinion.

    There aren't any cons really. Maybe getting the employees noticed more.

    Notice employees who are very passionate about their job and could be useful as full time.

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

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere most of the time, stable job with good job security, room for advancement if you're willing to go above and beyond.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company strays away from one of its main core values(family), Advancement can sometimes be unfair because of favoritism, Pay isn't horrible but it took me 6 years to make $3 more even when going into coordinator(assistant manager) positions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the work ethic of your workers and reward accordingly. Too much politics and backstabbing going on at some locations.
