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

Pros

Retail managers were great, friendly, very HR oriented

Cons

behind the scenes managers asked people to cut corners, do dangerous things to get more freight unloaded.

Advice to Management

Some of your unloading managers will eventually get somebody hurt or killed. You need to give store loss prevention more power to enforce OSHA and workplace rules on gun ho junior managers.

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

    Pros

    high standards are the norm. There is a process for everything, so just follow the playbook. Benefits are great as are the bonuses.

    Cons

    Expect to remain in your position for a long time. There is no automatic reshuffling of roles to keep people fresh. If you do an exceptional job, expect to remain in your position. If you volunteer to do the night shift you can expect to be there a very long time. Almost no one in mangement wants to do overnight and no one can force anyone to move so you can go back to days. Often times the company has to look outside the company for candidates to work overnight. There are very few people to do the jobs around the store. Expect to do a lot if necessary. Don't expect help from anyone else. They run Supercenters with fewer people than other retailers. This is a union environment. Wages for employees working the GM side start at $7.25 and this is the same rate that is paid to overnight associates. You have to find people who decide to work overnight for you as a lifestyle choice. Other wise, expect a lot of turnover.
