    Pros

    Nice coworkers
    Managers awnser questions
    Most bosses are understanding
    Pay every week
    Discount

    Cons

    Minimum wage
    Very hard work. I'm a utility worker. In the hot sun for 4+ hours. In my lot, I'm usually alone.
    Parking lot is crowded.

    Advice to Management

    Please give utility workers a break every 30 minutes because in the hot sun, pushing heavy carts with minimum help, the risk of becoming ill is severe. (Dyhydration, fainting, overheating, etc,) Also, either hire more people so there's at least two people in a lot. Or to give more hours to people.

    Pros

    Good for younger people to get through school. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Don't make this your stopping place unless you are planning on moving up the ladder. The longer you are there the worse they treat you.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management - Quit showing up announced for store management - they hide everything from you!

    Management Values you and your family and understands personal obligations while providing training and opportunities to develop in your role.

    Cons

    Coworkers can be difficult to work with due to negative attitudes. The workload is huge and you will need to work more than 8 to 5.

    Advice to Management

    Need time management classes so people can learn how to be organized.

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

    Pros

    The main corporate building is nice; fairly new, clean. Great cafe. Benefits are decent. Unfortunately, that's about it.

    Cons

    It's such an unfriendly place to work. Very low moral; it seemed like everyone disliked working there. So much gossip and backstabbing; it's ridiculous. I was actually bored most of the time. I feel like I wasted the past two years without advancing my career. Turnover is still a huge problem, even though management addressed this issue, and assured us they were working to improve it.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to boost moral, and make it a somewhat enjoyable place to work; you might have fewer people quitting.

    Pros

    Work isn't difficult, friendly fellow employees

    Cons

    Low pay, infrequent raises, if full time musty be available to work any shift ah any time and they can change your shift without notice.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If they have school or childcare they cannot just reschedule those things with a week or less notice.
