  • Employee Discount  (163 comments)

    “5% off Meijer brand grocery items (not produce, not deli. Milk, eggs, canned good, etc.) Purple cow and true goodness are the biggest ones. And...”

  • 401K Plan  (49 comments)

    “It's automatic, no consent necessary. They'll match your contribution up to 5% of your total pay. If you like 401ks, it's not bad.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (44 comments)

    “4 years, FT, and I get 5 paid days, if my manager approves. If they don't, I don't get them at all.”

    Meijer is an excellent company to work for with a comprehensive and extensive benefits package. In addition Working for a privately owned and operate company continues to prove that Fred Meijer's Vision and Legacy continue to live on.

    Meijer associates are no longer hired full time for grocery store positions. Even if one works 40 hours/week, the status is “Part Time.” This way Meijer does not have to pay benefits. Additionally, Meijer provides uniform shirts, but employees must provide their own pants and, in some cases, shoes. Meijer constantly reminds you that you can get a Meijer credit card, and they try very hard to get you to accept your pay on a prepaid card. A Meijer card, of course, which you must take to Customer Service if you want cash! Additionally, the union will hound you to death and make you feel like you have to join. If you do, there goes another piece of your paycheck every week. The union has very little power any more because Michigan is a right-to-work state. Meijer provides a coupon to buy pants, at a small discount. Meijer requires a Meijer fleece if you have a job where you are often costs you $16. All-in-all it feels like I’m being “fleeced” by Meijer.

    Good health insurance, but weekly copay is high especially if you have a family

    There were none - what else can I say?

    The health insuance takes your entire check to pay. Dental and eye coverage is very cheap and actually pays something.

    The Enrollment Time is To Short 1 Week to Enroll in Benefits

    Benefits mostly too expensive when you're part time.

    Meijer offers both 401k and Roth IRA which you can be part of both and the company will match both up to 5%. All vacation time is referred to as paid time off, you start off with 5 days out of 260 possible working days. Discount is 10% of General Merchandise (including Electronics) ONLY. No Groceries not even Meijer brand, not Health and Beauty either. Meijer also will pay part of your phone bill at a discounted rate directly processed through the carrier after confirmation of employment.

    The 10% discount off general merchandise is nice, but it doesn't count towards groceries. Vacation is minimal, and can be denied for any reason. You have almost no sick days, with, at best, one every forty-five days. Their health package is prohibitively expensive, and unavailable to the majority of the workforce.

    It's super expensive if you don't work full time. I don't really know any other details because it was too expensive for me to even consider.
