It's a good place to work because you have the union backing you but unfortunately most people won't go to the union they just expect them to magically know something bad or unfair is happening. Pay is competitive if you compare to other retailers in the area. We also still have paid vacation for everyone ...not just full timers and available benefits,i personally used the short term disability when I had my child and the paternal leave so I got a total of 20 weeks off give or take a few days.

They hire in for one position and then they tell you you’re somewhere else and they don’t look at your hours you are available they put you on wherever hours they want and they say pharmacy has to be certified and you don’t I know 3 people at different meijers who work in pharmacy and are not certified they do whatever they want and whatever they want they don’t even look at what hours you oowt d to work and they demote you because other cashiers get to go to other stores to learn and the rest of the cashiers get to stock what an unfair environment they do not live up to their “great standards” 12 people already left because of getting the run around

A very lazy environment, managers are extremely terrible while in the department given and totally treated like a number, of course. I wouldn't, but money is money, I guess. If you want better then seek better, as I considered this temporary with time. People there can also give you a reason to leave with time. So I wouldn't.

Favoritism to employees. Hard work is unappreciated and rarely thanked. Lazy workers and no one is held accountable for their actions. Pay is decent. Management is non existent in some departments.

A normal day at work can consist of walking in and they are already being a mess. At the start of your day baking go from already insane to essentially unmanageable. Management hiding in the office, irritated customers on the floor yelling at the team members; to add to that screaming kids people running around. Let’s examine the parking lot, it is treated like a raceway by both customers who could care less about one another and the utility workers. The employees also do not care as well and it’s time to go they will drive out at 55 mph. Overall 9/10 I would suggest only considering to work for Meijer if you can handle dealing with the worst of people in the best of people at an inconsistent rate.

The workload is shifted between understaffed departments and untrained team members. The culture is a festering bowl of dog snot.
