    I worked at Meijer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Union protection and decent benefits. Management is good to you if you are a strong employee - show up and perform your responsibilities. Paid weekly.

    Cons

    Pay is low as it is retail. Schedule can be tough due to seniority affecting hours - the days you work and total number of weekly hours.

    Advice to Management

    No favoritism or politics.

    Pros

    Friendly, approachable coworkers
    Accommodating schedule
    Good exercise
    Working with (most) customers
    Releasing new video games, books, movies, and/or music at midnight is fun

    Cons

    Low pay for tiring physical labor
    Little-to-no recognition of good performance aside from 4-month perfect attendance write-ups
    Mixed directions and feedback from Team Leaders and Lines Leaders
    Team Leaders constantly worried about being reprimanded by store director or regional managers
    Understaffed, resulting in Team Members and Leaders being spread too thin

    Advice to Management

    Regional management could consider reworking their expectations to match the limited staffing at stores, otherwise the stores ought to be able to hire enough people to meet the expectations.

    Pros

    Loved my team leaders Sara cooper and Jeremy Scott

    Cons

    Not enough help, poor health insurance, no sick time, pay was horrible and I was overwhelmed with all the work I had to do with little help. After over seventeen years of service I had to make the decision to leave I had to do what was best for my insanity because I was starting to take out my frustrations on my family. The company says they are a family oriented company but they are far from that.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team and do what the company preaches treat them with dignity and respect!

    Pros

    anyone can get the job

    Cons

    disregard your schedule even if you are part time and expect you to work full time hours

    Advice to Management

    learn how to do your job
    pay more considering receiving makes the store survive

    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

    I really can't think of anything I would consider a pro.

    Cons

    Management didn't actually manage the work load. They wouldn't check until about 2 hours prior to end of shift and then call overtime. They would point at you and say, "You WILL be staying over". You absolutely had to work every single Saturday, no matter what. There was no definite direction to any job that everyone followed. There was more gossip in that store than in middle school. Some of the management would tell you one thing and tell someone else otherwise. When asked about it, they would say you were both wrong. Skids were stacked 6 and 7 feet high and were not wrapped. They are only supposed to be four feet high. When we complained enough (daily) it would be fixed for one day. The next day they were tall and once again you had product falling and breaking. More shrink happened due to faulty stacking of skids than anything the regular employees did.
    No one could fix anything. They would simply say it had been like that for twenty years and it wasn't changing anytime soon. Everyone would blame the person above them. I was told that GM did NOT matter. Only grocery mattered because it made more money. Okay, when you are a GM employee that rather stinks. However, I was forced to work in grocery and push mcarts that weighed nearly 700 lbs. I was told it's on wheels it shouldn't be hard. That is not the case and practically had to make other employees feel bad to get any help. After that, they did help me. I told them at the interviews, I did NOT want to work grocery. They would schedule me there and not even have all their grocery people working.
    Also, it would have taken me 2 years at 40 hours a week to earn the next dollar. I worked hard and watched others not do much and was told they'd been there longer, so they didn't have to do as much.
    I could go on and on, but the gist is that I had more unnecessary stress at that job than any other job I have ever held. None of it was necessary, but the way they chose to run it made it happen.
    They didn't want to be a million dollar store because it would mean more work. Nevermind the fact, that supposedly it would have given us more bargaining power when new contracts would be discussed.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to realize that they can have a gameplan at the beginning of a shift. They can switch employees around to other jobs when one employee doesn't happen to be able to do a certain job as fast as they wish. Doing that instead of berating people (to their face and behind their backs) would be a better way to deal with the issue. Insulting people doesn't make them want to work harder for you. Realize employees are actual people not your servants.

    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.
