    I have been working at Meijer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good environment to work in..nice facilities, nice coworkers. Mostly 9 to 5, few mandatory Saturdays. Culture is nice. Good job in a pinch but will wear you out fast. People with actual knowledge and skills move on to better companies after a while.

    Cons

    Pay is low based on the amount of knowledge, experience, how difficult and demanding the job is and how much they expect of you in terns of productivity and volume. No advancement opportunities, it is a job not a career. Some times it seems they don't know what they are doing and in an effort to increase profit, they change all their policies in a drop of a hat and then expect you to re-learn everything from scratch without losing productivity. Benefits are expensive. Only 40 hrs PTO and you can't accumulate. Very short breaks. Not much recognition, no reward for going above and beyond other than a "good job" email. Very mentally draining. Inadequate sick leave..integrated in your total of 80 hrs a year. You can't really go on a vacation and be seriously sick the same year. Very strict point system. You miss a few days of work, you are fired which means your hard work and your knowledge is not appreciated. They can always train someone else,.right?

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Meijer full-time

    Pros

    None whatsoever no advancements opportunities no nothing

    Cons

    Everything! I was employed at kroger for 7 years and it was horrible. I quit thinking meijer would offer better opportunities for advancement and boy was I wrong! It’s completely way worse than kroger. Meijer treats their employees terrible they don’t care at all! I was a Starbucks lead and I was basically set up to fail completely! They always scheduled me alone I couldn’t fulfill orders or anything else of importance. I wasn’t allowed breaks and if I left to run to the restroom I would then be paged constantly! The management I would call repeatedly letting her know I needed a break and they would not answer and swear there phone didn’t ring only to find out they were outside taking one of many smoke breaks. They have been telling other employees and management that they won’t stop until I’m fired I’ve spoke to hr about the things said and it gets swept under the rug and brushed off! The management is very inconsistent, we have an employee who has called off every week does no call no shows and shows up late for every shift yet still has a job but when I’m 3 minutes late it’s a huge problem. I have been singled out and discriminated against on more than one occasion and nothing was done! I was promised $1 raise when taking over Starbucks and it’s been a year and still NOTHING I do all ordering inventory write schedules resets you name it for nothing more than broken promises! The management is terrible which makes for a very hard work environment!

    I have been working at Meijer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I work with some of the best people I have in my life.

    Cons

    With the pandemic going on, corporates (like market directors) and line leaders are putting a lot of pressure on all of us. With online shopping being offered now, it's getting worse. Corporate just bombarded us with offering online shopping/pickup with very minimal time to train. A lot of us at the store I work at maybe had an hour maximum to be trained at it and you're expected to work quickly and fast as possible. Corporate need better preparations about the online store, the website online, and need more assurance to the customers that we are all going through tough time.
