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.

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

    Pros

    Met my best friend while working there, got to interact with lots of different people and learn about different transaction types.

    Cons

    Where to begin! Crappy hours, very fast paced, cranky customers who are not afraid to tell you what you're doing wrong, management always backs the customer when they complain about a cashier, people who don't know how to use their cards or have thousands of random coupons, also managers are not afraid to take you off the schedule if they feel they need to review your employment status within '24 hours', and it will take weeks to hear back, and then they fire you when you come back in for your shift. Union also is a joke. They pretend to care, but hardly return your calls. If you like being treated horribly by customers and managers alike, this is a perfect place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent, don't always back the customer just because you fear face to face confrontation. Also, if you are going to fire an employee, you need to do it within a timely manner with written documentation as to why, and not leave the employee hanging for weeks not knowing what they did wrong.
