    Pros

    Management Values you and your family and understands personal obligations while providing training and opportunities to develop in your role.

    Cons

    Coworkers can be difficult to work with due to negative attitudes. The workload is huge and you will need to work more than 8 to 5.

    Advice to Management

    Need time management classes so people can learn how to be organized.

    Pros

    Co-workers and managers are friendly and are there for you when you need them.
    Pay is better than minimum wage in Michigan and you are guaranteed raises.
    Can be in a union or opt-out.
    Benefits: dental, vision, health, 401K retirement plan.
    Consistent hours since it's third shift.
    Opportunities for full time and/or management if you've been there for about a year and are willing to stick it out for the long haul.
    Those who become managers can end up running their own store after a while as well but I suggest loving retail if you want to do that stuff.

    Cons

    Even though the pay is better than most entry level jobs, third shift workers deal with the brunt of everything. Be prepared to get blamed for just about anything from day shift workers and managers. You will probably feel as though you work harder than anyone else on any other shift and you probably do. The pay will seem not so worth it after a while. The turn over rate is about 95% so don't expect to be working with your co-workers for more than a year. There's inconsistency with how much work you will be doing every night. Some nights you're slammed and are unable to get everything stocked, other nights there's barely anything and you get out 3-4 hours early from your shift. Nights you might work are also fairly inconsistent. Also expect for things to be constantly changing as the CEO's and directors are always trying new things at the expense of the workers they don't even see.. These methods never seem to benefit the production crew (you).

    Management is a joke. Managers don't care about you and expect way more out of you then your job assignment

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

    Pros

    I think this was an excellent place to start my software development career (relative to other options in West Michigan, anyway). I started as an intern and was immediately given interesting tasks and plenty of time to learn. I had two managers during my time there and both were solid people. I also had a lot of autonomy over a few small projects that ended up being used by customer service employees at the retail locations. Pretty cool.

    Cons

    Many coworkers were complacent and obviously just there for a paycheck. Not much fresh, new technology (if it isn't broke, don't fix it...which I definitely understand).

    Advice to Management

    Give the passionate, driven people more autonomy and the ability to chose who they work with. It seems like they sprinkled high performers across teams instead of getting some exponential benefit from letting them work together on important projects.
