    I have been working at Meijer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job Security, the company is performing well in annual profit and sales increase the past 6 years. The company has been adding jobs to store operations recently.
    Recent change in leadership shows some promise for change in the future.

    Cons

    Different positions are resource supported better than the rest of the store (corporate operations, emphasizing importance on top sale performing departments)
    Work every weekend unless on vacation for the week.
    Work almost every holiday (unless the one you get off is forgotten about)
    Work often late into the day and evening unless a senior team member.
    50 hr team leaders often put in more time and feel uncomfortable asking for that time back and under appreciated for the extra time put in.
    Senior leadership have not worked in all the departments, customer service area is the most forgotten about, leaders do not understand the obstacles and often place a lot of pressure on one or two individuals. The service department has the largest personnel count per single department throughout the store. 2 management to 50+ employees.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with your team and listen. Listening to understand is probably the single greatest thing anyone can do to change the environment around you. If you don't have time for your team, nothing will improve. Rick Keyes (President) talks like he knows this but it needs to trickle down.

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

    Pros

    - Think I was lucky because I had a good boss and good coworkers
    - Realistically work wasn't very hard or demanding but very very repetitive and tedious.

    Cons

    - Customers are always a con in retail.
    - They say you have opportunities to move up in the company internal positions...but that's a damn lie.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your middle management/team leaders, it's a total joke the crap going on between team leaders and store directors even and makes your company look bad.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great: flexible schedule, competitive pay. Ther'es always someone to talk to about any issues/concerns. Clear and easily understandable punishment/reward system.

    Cons

    There are little opportunities for promotions unless you become best friends with the other managers. Promotions are entirely given out on nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the workers. Either show appreciation or offer tips to help them perform better. Have other departments/stores give promotions.
