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

    Pros

    It is a fast-paced and ever-changing work environment, and you are constantly meeting new people and learning new things. Also get a team member discount.

    Cons

    Pay is negligible, management doesn't seem to care about departmental issues, training is terrible, half of the times we don't have all of the necessary supplies to do our jobs correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people better. Pay them better. REWARD them better.

    I worked at Meijer part-time

    Pros

    Paid every Thursday . Nothing else

    Cons

    I worked at meijers before they opened in Greenfield. It started ok. But as soon as the store opened, it was a disaster. A lot of time people including mines, hours was cut. Rude and unsupportative management....

    Advice to Management

    Care about employees and then there won't be a high turnover rate

    Pros

    Time and a half on holidays. You can usually get a decent amount of hours without trying hard. Pay increase maybe 1-2 times a year based on hours worked.

    Cons

    Management was continuously inept. Union was useless unless you were an awful employee. It takes like 13 pts or fractions to get fired and i knew people well over 20/30 not get fired. You lose seniority over pregnancies or educational leave.

    Advice to Management

    Actually fire inept employees. Train the slackers and dont put extra work on the good employees.

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

    Pros

    Great pace for technician that are just starting off. The data entry programming or system was ready to learn. All the technology made it very easy to pick up quickly.

    Cons

    At the location I worked the staff were the rudest people ever.

    Advice to Management

    Train or teach the employees that customer service is the most important thing. I was horrified with the way the Pharmacist treated the technicians and in turn treated the customers as well. Seemed no one was happy to be there, the dysfunction was obvious to the customers as well.

    Pros

    They have some good benefits

    Cons

    Training for team lead is almost non existent, it is basically learn on your own, line leaders are a bit lazy and arrogant, passing the buck to team leaders, expectations for unloading loads and throwing loads,(stocking shelves) are unreasonable, the corporate heads and store directors and line leaders rely on computer generated reports which are unrealistic. They do not take into consideration the quality of team members that they hire, which is poor quality, team members just walk like they are strolling in the park, they dont have any respect or responsibility for their work, very few are, but not enough of them to complete the tasks on time.Company puts way too much pressure on team leaders without them having any knowledge of what is really happening with team members. Corporate regional managers also do not pay attention to what the key issues are, they just follow corporate guidelines generated by computers and throw them at you and expect unreasonable results. In short you have people in the corporate offices who have no clue what is going on in their stores, they probably never worked in a store putting up stock or handling employees, they are college graduates who never got their hands dirty and think they can run a business just by computers. When they come up with the concept that "team members on the floor should greet every customer that is close to them", that was a clue that corporate has no idea what they are doing, of course team members should greet customers, that is basic practice, but for corporate to spend time and effort to come up with this concept and act as if they just discovered the wheel with this idea, is silly and immature behavior, if i were the Meijer family i would be disappointed at my corporate management team.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay attention to your people who are in the stores making things happen, those who physically have to be there with the customers and team members, you need to rely in them for ideas and information rather than your computer generated or marketing companies that you spend millions on for information, use that money to pay your employees better.

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

    Pros

    I'd say consistency with meeting the minimum daily goals is one, but also needs improvement. General atmosphere is operational but need more fine tuning.
    Incentives are present but more innovation for rewarding hard work would be a great suggestion.

    Cons

    Poor management Staff.
    Careless mistakes with staff.
    Lack of proper leadership.
    Lack of proper on-the-job training.
    Favoritism.
    Unadressable issues.
    Lack of Work Ethic with staff and team leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Needs a new fresh start on the drawing board and more up to date procedures with a strongly put together team assembled.
    May require Corporate intervention due to many issues that slip under the radar.

    I worked at Meijer full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, vacation time, benefits, not very strict

    Cons

    Not very strict, which leads to fewer people working hard, management can sometimes be disrespectful, more workbfor those who do a good job, pay is not for supporting a family

    Advice to Management

    Management should enforce higher standards on those who do not meet company requirements instead of pushing their assigned work onto the achieving employment. Increase starting and top off pay.
