    Pros

    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 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, good leadership, two 15 minute breaks and one 30 minute lunch per shift, straightforward job responsibilities and assignments

    Cons

    Required to work second or third shift as an entry level employee, forced to pay unions every month, other than that, I have no further cons to discuss

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management. The current system works well, however, I do think that management need to hire more employees, cashiers to be specific, as I was called up once or twice daily to take over a register due to a shortage of cashiers.

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

    Pros

    - Think I was lucky because I had a good boss and good coworkers
    - Realistically work wasn't very hard or demanding but very very repetitive and tedious.

    Cons

    - Customers are always a con in retail.
    - They say you have opportunities to move up in the company internal positions...but that's a damn lie.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your middle management/team leaders, it's a total joke the crap going on between team leaders and store directors even and makes your company look bad.
