    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Hours are flexible, and the work isn't too demanding.

    Cons

    Low pay, terrible communication. They give the hard workers more work instead of working with the slackers to get them to do their jobs correctly. No reward for hard work either. No advancement opportunity if you can't work 40+ hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with the staff, back up your employees more.

    Pros

    Most of the managers are personable and nice, if you're doing something wrong they'll tell you without any large reprimand which is a relief. The general atmosphere is good, co-workers are nice, and there aren't too many disrespectful customers.

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours for part time. Receiving is always behind so we don't have new product when we're supposed to on a consistent basis for the past 7-8 months since I began working there.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try to put everyone on an equal playing field, sometimes I feels as if non management is held to different standards such as, managers often stop what they're doing to talk make small talk with other managers in groups, including the store director, to talk about non work related topics. Which is fine I might add, however if a member of management sees an hourly employee doing the same thing with another hourly employee, we're usually told to get to work almost immediately. Feels like a lot of double standards get thrown around where some rules don't apply to management which really stifles the whole idea of a leader leading by example.
