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

    Pros

    Always room to move up if you work hard. Leadership takes your opinion into consideration to improve the store. Great perks for employees.

    Cons

    Pay is low for Asset Protection compared to other retailers. I can't think of other cons. If you're lazy I'm sure you would think of alot of cons

    I have been working at Meijer full-time

    Pros

    Another team member will teach you everything you need to know about the job you get hired for. The team member needs to be flexible everyday.

    Cons

    Might be learning every job Meijer has to offer. The team member will be hired to be stocking shelves but you might be doing another job instead. It makes it interesting.

    Advice to Management

    Give us more time to learn the job we are performing. It might take some of us more time than others.

    Pros

    They meet you where you are, never worked in a place where you set your hours. Great staff.

    Cons

    When it's crunch time it would help if all employees were on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Keep letting employees know that you really care.

    I have been working at Meijer part-time

    Pros

    I picked a second job to help my income in the summer as a cashier at the Waukesha Meijers. The mangers were very nice and very helpful in training. Most of the employees were very nice as well. The work was not hard and I even decided to stay on for 1 or 2 shifts a week during the school year.

    Cons

    The only con is that sometimes employees do not show up!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep training hard and a smile on your face!!!

    Listen to when someone changes their availability and actually double check the predone schedule.

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

    Pros

    People move around from job to job fast

    Cons

    if you are not in a team leader or line leader could take sometime to move up but once in a team lead spot it is easy.

    Advice to Management

    If someone from inside interviews for a high spot and does not get it, get back with them and teach them what to do better for next time

    I worked at Meijer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced
    Always something to work on or learn
    Pay increases based on time worked (per union contract)
    Ability to become full-time status
    Lots of available hours and ability to pick up extra in other areas while part-time
    Ability to transfer between departments for a change pace/scenery

    Cons

    Working conditions are highly dependent on the location
    Part-time can be scheduled very low hours (but you can see if other areas need help)
    Freight processing is an unorganized mess and needs an overhaul from the top - items sent to wrong stores, inventory count off, items not available for customers because of being on truck or dock (for weeks), skids not sorted, etc.

    Advice to Management

    You probably need to hire a consulting contractor to tell you what you're doing wrong with your freight logistics. It's a mess.

    Can get exhausting with the constant flow of customers
