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

    Pros

    Well known in the midwest.
    Unionized for team members.
    Easy to become indispensable if you have a wide variety of skills.

    Cons

    Customer interaction can often be very draining, especially when it comes to "problem customers."
    Corporate culture slow to react and evolve.
    Out-of-date equipment creates more maintenance headaches/overhead than necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Your team members are your number one asset. Its through them that all customer service takes place, and if they are feeling burned out, helpless, or unsupported, service suffers. "The customer is always right" is an archaic business model that more often than not serves to demoralize employees rather than benefit the customer. Care for your employees well, and they will bend over backwards to care for your customers.

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

    Pros

    1 )flexible hours 2) Understanding of day to day life interferences. 3) pro-union.
    4) Mostly in-person training 5) Great pay for an easy job 6) 10% discount on some items

    Cons

    1) shift leads can either be the best or worst... mostly worst 2) Little to no autonomy
    3) Lots of infighting and grudges 4) Shift leads and management provide stress to an easy job 5) 1% of customers will be the worst human beings you will ever meet and you will have to smile at them and wish them a nice day 6) No real culture or values

    Advice to Management

    This is an easy job and you have many overqualified people working it. You need to calm down on adding new rules to the whole group and just reprimand those who are ruining it. Your job and my job is not difficult, stop trying to make it that way.
