I worked at Meijer full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

IF a good supervisor and store manager, the super will cover your back.
THEN your challenge is good customer service and making your supervisor look good.

Cons

IF an evil supervisor, your life will be a living hell .
The laws of most jurisdictions forbid an “Operation Anthropoid” solution.
The only real solution is termination of BOTH the employee and the supervisor, with hope that Karma will eventually get him/her .

Advice to Management

Pay serious attention to responsible complaints concerning rogue supervisors, thereby avoiding the risk of learning of a rage slaying of the rogue supervisor at your store on your watch .

Corporate or field management will throw you under the train and it will be YOUR fault .

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

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed work environment. The managers generally do not micromanage unless it is very busy or they are pressured to (meaning corporate is coming in). You can clock in and out without asking permission ( just make sure you do so at the correct time or you get points!). You can take your lunch breaks and 2 15 minute breaks when you want as well. As long as you get your work done, you should be fine (but that is easier said than done). My coworkers are great though!

    Cons

    The scheduling is crazy! There are never enough people scheduled on the busiest days which leads to chaos. Then you get in trouble because you cannot complete your task on time. If you are on probation, you will get blamed for everything.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that can schedule! I understand that last minute changes are sometimes necessary (if a person calls off or if you expect that you will be receiving a large truck), but frequent changes make it a burden on everybody. We have a life too! At my place, you often end up with only 1 or 2 people in your area on busy days (which makes it hard to complete your tasks) and too many people on slow days (which means you finish hours early and have to spend time doing lame busy work. Lying about cutting peoples hours is unacceptable. Don't tell people that you are going to cut their hours only to have them work the same amount of time they usually do everyday (and then cancel their off days!)

    I worked at Meijer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company itself is great to work for. They offer good pay and benefits for Team Leaders. They offer advancement opportunities to those who are wiling to drive or relocate.

    Cons

    The management in some stores doesn't create a positive work environment. Some Market Directors don't engage positively with their team leaders. Training is very lax.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure each and every person has the tools they need to do their job to the best of their ability.
