    I have been working at Meijer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It not a bad place to start working. I started working here to help pay for college and they work around school.

    Cons

    It's a place you can get easily frustrated working at. The majority of the time you don't have enough staff to compete everything and help customers. Some of the mid level mangment treat lower level employees poorly. I am not saying all are like that, but I've had to work for a mid level department manger who was just straight up crazy and has no skills dealing with people.

    I worked at Meijer part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working there for many years, the benefits were great, a lot of time off w/pay for example. With the newer Union contract, you won't ever see that anymore. Co-workers were great to work with, and some team leaders.

    Cons

    #1 complaint from customers is not enough checklanes open. You would think a big company like this would address it by increasing labor for the service department. Instead they will bring up department employees (who all hate doing it), which then leaves very little help in the back. So, be prepared to cashier up front.

    Management was very much a clique... would talk about and laugh about other team members behind backs. Make team members do tasks outside of their departments responsibilities. It was very high school'ish.

    Advice to Management

    The employee's have to suffer from horrible company policy. It's bad enough with just that, employee's don't need crappy management to push them even further into miserableness.

    Pros

    Schedules can be done around my school schedule

    Cons

    Hours cut drastically, rude managers, getting called out of your department to run lanes because they won't schedule enough cashiers, don't call in help if someone calls in sick

    Advice to Management

    Make your team members happy. Make sure they are getting enough hours to fill their gas tank, thank them for going above and beyond. Schedule enough people for all shifts.

    Pros

    The only reasons to work for Meijer is that it is a job and they provide healthcare benefits if you can manage to keep your job longer than 90 days.

    Cons

    There are so many downsides to working for Meijer that I don't even know where to begin. In order to keep your job past 90 days, you have to apply to the corporate office for FMLA leave in case of any absenses or tardies. (Yes, it's true, one minute late constitutes grounds for a write-up.) After that, you have to figure out which managers to become "buddies" with because that is how you are going to end up keeping you job long enough to earn benefits. As far as promotions or growth within the company, I've been there nearly 10 years and I still stock groceries. I have applied for numerous other positions and since beginning there, I have received a 4-year college degree related to business and I am still treated as if I am nothing more but a mushroom. My ideas are not taken any more seriously than anyone else that is not related to the Meijer family. Their family seems to be the only one that matters in it's "friendliness and familiness" core values!

    Advice to Management

    Senior management really needs to go back to business school and take some economics, accounting, and business ettiquette classes. They also need to learn to abide by their own union contract. And if they are going to try to make it's employees abide by "core values" of "friendliness and familiness" they need to abide by them as well.
