Horrible place to work I had a deli manager tell me that it's hard for a manager to work with a team member that has disAbilities after that he figured out a way to fire me after 27 years of working for Meijer DO NOT WORK HERE

At the Meijer I shop at, there are not enough employees to help people in any department, which slows shopping down. I used to work there, so I know how it used to run, smoothly with the amount of employees they had then.

Everyone has a kliq

Some people are rude to newbies and others expect you to do the job of others who slack off

Flossmore store was pretty good in the beginning. Flossmore allows 18 year olds to sell alcohol. Needless to say, there are many young empoyees. Cashiers hanging around in groups, people goofing off, on their phones, and eating in front of customers. Workers don't respect each other. I tried to voice my concerns numerous times. Sorry to say that there was no improvement.

Terrible management all around. The team leads don’t do anything except walk around with their coffee and sit in the office staring at the computers. Then they expect their employees to pick up their slack and when they can’t get their own stuff done from being understaffed, they penalize you for it. If you are hired on for a certain shift, don’t expect to keep it. I was working 4 or 5 am shifts for almost a year and they decided to pull me and put me on the mid day shifts. They refuse to let anyone transfer departments and after requesting a transfer they treat you so poorly you are forced to quit. Oh and the leads are so focused on themselves, my deli team lead actually told an employee who needed surgery ASAP because she could not eat and hardly breathe, that she had to wait 2 weeks because the schedule was already made 😡

Horrible so called management. Extremely toxic attitudes from most of the manager's. Never enough help to do any of the completely unrealistic expectations they want. There are employees who DO NOT WORK at all, they spend literally the entire day on the toilet or on their phones. One person can drag down an entire team. Manager's do not fix these problems. I've been here 5 years and regret it. Do not, I repeat, do not work for this evil and corrupt company!



I worked as a produce clerk for over a year. And also a few months in bakery. I was team oriented and went over and above to support my team. The demands of the job we're unrealistic but I strove to do my best. None of that matters at Meijer. They base your review strictly by the time clock. If you are 2 minutes late it goes against you and they rate you from one to four. Go below four and they haul you in for a talk with the manager. there is a real double standard too. Slackers that called in all the time got away with it while hard workers like me were given a hard time if 2 minutes late too often. The only good thing about Meijer is the union which negotiates benefits and regular raises.

TOXIC. Poor mangement from the Top to Bottom. The company and upper mangement are all about the bonuses and bottom line. Do not care about employees and giving proper staff or tools to get the job done properly. Then management wonders why cleaning and othere sanitary task are not being done.
