    I have been working at Meijer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun, especially if you have a good group to work with. Flexible hours, allowed me to attend college and work full-time. Decent wage compared to some other companies.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work weekends, especially if you're a good employee. Hours can vary depending on seniority. Union workers are typically awful so be prepared to pick up the slack of "senior" employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Don't be afraid to relay a message from a store director/lines leader to your team; and for store directors/ Lines leaders talk to the employees instead of the team leaders.

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

    Pros

    The company was very tight-knit. They really stress the importance of teamwork and it shows how employees interact with one another.
    Most people will meet people that will become friends with, and everybody is really nice.

    Cons

    The nature of my work involved pushing carts, so naturally, it isn't the most fun thing, especially in the summer. However, they even made it easier by giving us other tasks inside and lightening the load a little bit. The managers were also really dedicated to the team and would help pushing carts if needed.

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

    Pros

    - LOVED my Leadership Team. I learned so much from them.
    - my Service Team was fantastic. we worked really well together.
    - Meijer provides a lot of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    - received new Store Director, and environment in the store totally fell apart. I spoke with HR and didn't receive any help dealing with the situation. I started to feel broken going into work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep promoting people because they might be doing well in a position. Ask their team for their opinion. Maybe they just work hard to make upper management like them while treating those beneath them awful.
