    Started out as a good place to work

    Management not doing their job. Upper management expecting so much with little funding. No pat on the back for employees when they go above and beyond the call of duty.

    Be there when staff needs you. Give them the pat on the back

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

    Pros

    For the most part, the pay is pretty decent. I'm pulling around 9.80 per hour, as compared to 7.50 at my last job from years back. The team leaders and store directors are usually pretty nice and professional when dealing with the non-salaried employees. The store generally gives opportunities to work in a variety of departments, which can be useful in resumes. The 10% discount on general merchandise is nice, and every once in awhile the company sends coupons for an additional 20% off GM, HBC and grocery if sales are particularly good.

    Cons

    Despite the volume of customers shopping daily in many of the stores, Meijer seems to only want to give less than 30 hours a week to Part-Time employees; I'm not sure if this is due to poor performance of other stores, or due to actual corporate policies. Pay is not high enough to justify hour cuts. Many stores favor hiring many new employees over giving current employees hours. Departments are generally understaffed on a day-to-day

    Advice to Management

    Look at the volume of customers shopping at the individual stores, and judge the amount of hours to allot for schedules accordingly.
