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

    Pros

    Very easy interview

    Union representative is very friendly and helpful

    Plenty of hours

    Friendly co workers

    Friendly management

    Cons

    Worked 40 hours every week my entire employment, but was still considered part time.

    Very inconsistent/unpredictable schedule.

    10% employee discount cannot be used toward groceries or Health and Beauty.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest allowing employees to use employee discount on Meijer brand groceries, and actually signing performance cards for good performance.

    Pros

    Perfect for someone who always likes to be busy.

    Cons

    Lots of management experience, without the benefits. Full-time positions don't have as much flexibility as part-time.

    Pros

    Really good experience in retail and a lot of opportunity to continue your career if that is what you're looking to do in life.

    Cons

    Can be very stressful at times and managers seem to dislike their jobs. Can be hard to enjoy working for sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Change the policy on employee handling and increase wagers for different tiers of employees.

    I worked at Meijer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a fast paced job, you do have genuinely nice people (most of the time) that you deal with both as customers and co-workers, management in certain areas excels, and the presence of a union shows you that they at least care slightly.

    Cons

    The rules they put into place are useless and harmful at times, the pay is sub-par especially for the amount of verbal abuse you deal with, management will often visit so store leaders make you work triple what you normally do to the point of bodily injury so they get a better score when they could have just planned ahead, and you have little to no control of your schedule even if you attempt to change it because changes are rarely acknowledged and rarely granted.

    Advice to Management

    Make the process to getting into higher levels in your company much more rigorous, these are the people representing not only your brand, but your personal ideals. The pay should be much higher, yes, but that's not how business works and most people know this, so maybe work a tad less on sales and more on your employees. The employees within your retail stores are your lifeblood and the only thing keeping that angry mother who wants the sale price from three weeks ago from coming to you and venting 40 years of anger.

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

    Pros

    Nothing at this place gives me anything to say as a pro for this section. This place sucks very big time.

    Cons

    This place really sucks. Nobody works and none of the managers care what happens. Very low salary for the work that I do I bust my butt so much that I sweat all day, all 8 hours of my shift and I get paid nothing. If you want a crappy place to work with crappy people then you have successfully found your dream job.

    Advice to Management

    You all suck so much that if you all worked at a gay strip club you would become millionaires in a matter of days

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

    Pros

    Friendly co workers, good 1st time job not a place for a career.

    Cons

    Vacations get canceled, if you become salary plan on 60 plus hour weeks, store directors treat team leaders like dogs, the company expects you to do more than anyone can actually do. No training

    Advice to Management

    Train your team leaders, have the budget to make it so Team leaders can coach and train vs try to hold things together by working them self to death. Better pay
