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

    Pros

    I actually enjoy working for Meijer and I definitely enjoy working with most employees. Management is actually pretty great as long as you do what you are supposed to do. Pay raise after your first 350 hours and again after another 350 and then after 700 hours.

    Cons

    Hours are constantly being cut especially if you are part time. You can work 35-40 hours for a few weeks and then all of a sudden only be getting 20ish hours. And then back to 34 and then after a few days go back to 20. They also have a pay cap so after getting your last pay amount on the rate chart. You can no longer get a raise after hitting the last pay amount. Also, everything is based on sinaurity not merit. You can be the best,u employee and deserving of a raise o ra full time position. Anyone who has a higher senorita.
    Will be offered any extra hours , or FT position before you.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere if you have the right store director. Hell if your store is lead by someone that's on a never ending power trip. Awesome place to work when lead by someone who welcomes change.

    Cons

    Old school versus new school. Retail is always changing and it's hard to change when you work at a store ran by someone old school that's stuck in their own ways.

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

    Pros

    The people are usually friendly and you get 10% discount in general merchandise

    Cons

    They can do as they please with your availability and your schedule. They give good lip service about how Meijer has family values but the next day they will cut your hours because you are PT and don't care if you can't feed your kids.
    I was brought in as PT but promised 40hrs a week and then they didn't make their quota and they cut everybody's hours by half. Funny thing is, they are short staffed and are hiring left and right. Also, it is simply not enough time to do your job with half the hours so as a result you get no breaks trying to keep up with demand.
    They did this 3 weeks before Christmas too. There are no benefits, the Union takes your dues but does nothing for you. Work is usually very physical (lifting, stocking etc) and if they need you anywhere else, they will just tell you to do that regardless of what they originally hired you for. There are really no career opportunities there for advancement of any kind. I got that job because I was desperate for a paycheck like most people are. They will hire anyone really. No drug tests are given. People quit daily so it is a revolving door of faces. Quite strong penalty system for missing days or being over on your break. You get two 15 mins breaks in 8 hrs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat people like they are disposable. You make more than enough to feed your families, make sure your employees can too. Especially with Christmas coming. It was pretty low of you to do that to so many families that depend on you to eat.

    Great organization. Great place to work. Great vision from leadership. Great diversity. Honors commitments. Does things the right way. Awesome place

    24/7. Honor holidays for team members. Lines of communication to associates could be better. Pay for hourly team members could also be improved. Take better care of the foot soldiers

    Pros

    Weekly pay was really nice and honestly the reason I decided to work here part time, it was close to home

    Cons

    hours on your feet, some managers are rude, the time goes by slowly, ridiculous customers are few but very annoying

    Advice to Management

    Better pay, ditch the "customer is always right" mentality, the CEO doesn't seem like he really cares
