    I have been working at Meijer part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Certain managers are great. Like at any company, Meijer has good and bad managers. The current manager of the Meat Dept. at Knapp Corner Meijer is a great manager. He wants to see his team members thrive and he has our best interests in mind. He will fight for you.

    Cons

    While certain managers are on your side, from my experience, the company as a whole (corporate I have in mind here with HR in particular) does not. I put in 15 years and then I went on educational leave and when I came back lost my Ed leave along with my 15 years of loyalty (which included my pay rate, pension, vacation time). Watch out, they may look to take advantage of you.

    I have been working at Meijer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some have a Starbucks inside, some have a bank inside, some have both. The store that I work at is a high volume store so it is fast paced work.

    Cons

    Upper management can be hard to work with. No quarterly review to earn a higher wage. Understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and pay them a living wage.

    Pros

    10% off general merchandise
    nice people

    Cons

    didn't seem to care about employees
    didn't let me do job I was hired for

    Advice to Management

    When you hire someone for the cake decorator position, actually let them decorate cakes - especially when your store does 70+% of the cake share in the area.
