Not for the lazy generation of today
Associate (Former Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – October 21, 2018
Love this job. Regret ever leaving the place! The production based pay gives you daily motivation to work hard and try to make as much as you can. You just have to be smart and driven. So many guys come into this job and don't have the stones to do the job. As long as you listen to your training and soak up any advice from the knowledgeable employees here, you should easily be able to earn an hourly wage that beats any other job you can find in the area. Everyone expects to make those high wages immediately when they start, but it takes time to get familiar with the loads and get in a groove. Give it 2-3 months and you'll have more money on your check than you know what to do with.
Worst thing about the job honestly is the start times. Meijer's receiving window is from 12:30am to about 1pm. It's not the worst, but makes having a social life hard at times.
Bad days happen sometimes. Lack of motivation and work ethic in coworkers can result in prolonged shifts. Whether it's those trendy call ins or just guys not having the drive to make money so they stand around talking rather than working.
A lot of reviews on here are so far from the truth. Supervisors 'friends' arent given certain trucks. There are company procedures and list protocol that prevent these things. Just assumptions made by individuals uninformed of how this company works.
Money, Workout, Friendly Coworkers
Unreliable coworkers, shift times
