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

    Pros

    Not a lot of customers. everyone is laid back and easy to get along with. All ways something to do.

    Cons

    They are a union so union dues are taken out. The hours can suck twelve to twenty five hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Unless you got some seniority or if you are the only one to put in for it, you won't get to advance.

    Pros

    The Benefits and Vacations were nice at one time.

    Cons

    The hours the office personal are expected to work are unfair. It is very difficult to have a work/family balance. Although salary is based on 48 hours, most work 55 to 60 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    There is a big difference between Managers and Team Leaders. Meijer is top heavy with Leaders that Manage their team from the outside and not enough Team Leaders that can lead and guide their team to success.
