    I worked at Meijer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company cares about the customer. Fast paced, lots of learning.

    Cons

    Micro-managed, favoritism, rudeness, untrusting, and unpleasant work atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Hold managers accountable if there is a high turn-over rate of employees in department. Their is a reason for the turn-over. Looking away is unprofessional.

    Open the pocketbook, employees are leaving for other places of employment at an alarming rate.

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

    Pros

    -Relatively easy job.
    -Paid weekly.
    -Keep your head down and do your job and you'll survive.
    -Works with school schedules.
    -Long hire process but they'll hire anything with a heartbeat.

    Cons

    -Crazy points system. Late 4 SECONDS? .5 pt Late 2hrs? .5 pt
    -Ridiculously long interview process for a min wage job.
    -Used to be about family values now it's just money motivated.
    -Management treats employees horrible...more than once did I hear someone be told "you're easily replaced"
    -if you do your job you'll be TOLD to do the slackers jobs too
    -Rarely allows those who want to move up, do so. They choose the person whether that person wants to or not.

    Advice to Management

    Be appreciative- if you tell your employees "good job" or acknowledge them from time to time then they'll be more willing to go the extra mile. Without your employees you have dissatisfied customers and without customers you have nothing. I do believe Fred Meijer was quoted as saying "Customers don't need us, we need them."
    Corporate: If you wish to continue expanding then you need to make an effort to visit the far away stores too. Just because their numbers look good, doesn't mean the store isn't drowning!

    Pros

    Very professional environment. I really liked the way they included contractors into the position, made you feel like your contribution mattered, even if not a full time team member. 8-5 very "old" school work life.

    Cons

    no room to grow. disliked that there was not an active "funnel" to put qualified candidates. I will seek other opportunites because of the very apparent glass ceiling.

    Advice to Management

    Amazing people come to you via contract. Let them SHINE on their own right, let them grow, adapt and ultimately, if a right fit, invite them ONBAORD!
