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

Pros

The biggest pro is there is a union and you are guaranteed raises. Part-time employees can get medical, dental and vision insurance (which is decent).

Cons

Terrible shift start times "4 a.m. is first shift" in the produce department at the Meijer I work at. They don't have a good reward or incentive program for employees. The extreme emphasis of Micro management of employees is also bad.

Advice to Management

Create an actual incentive/ reward program for your employees; also cut back on the amount of Micro management.

    I have been working at Meijer part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get a job there. Employees are friendly.

    Cons

    Absolutely no communication between employees and team leaders. Management will only follow store policy and process if it is in their favor. Beware of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees with respect and have an over all happy demeanor then that will trickle down the line to your customers. You will have happier employees and customers which makes for a better business.
