Full Time Cashier (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – July 16, 2018
For the most part, working for Meijer is a good idea. At least the store I work for. Some managment know what they're doing, others do not. I enjoy working as a team in service as we all have the common goal and getting the customer out the door.
Fashion inventory coordinator (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – July 15, 2018
This company under pays. The work ethnic is more then what you receive. Management doesn't pay you what your worth. All though I have learned many things. I am in need for more pay and mangers that to over and beyond as us employees do.
Produce Clerk (Current Employee) – Warren, MI – July 14, 2018
If you want to work with friendly people ..avoide meijer like plagues. The higher ups are awful people ..the team leaders especially are awful ...they tell you to take break every two hour but if you do the team leaders gets a attitude and yells at you .
Awful team leaders, short breaks, extra work without getting paid overtime.
Don’t ever work at the Southport road store in Indianapolis
Gas Station Attendant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 14, 2018
I was nothing but discriminated against. Treated unfairly, and terminated for no valid reason. You bring issues to your team leader and above and are treated like scum afterwords. They have a “open door policy” to try and get disputes handled fairy witch doesn’t work and if you do go to your store director or anyone else my team leader cut my hours and purposely treated me horrible. Wrote me up for everything while Not enforcing rules for other team members.
i loved my job but i left to work at eyemed for money and then stop there to be a stay at home mom. i worked in the bakery half my time there and the peers where nice to be around and one day they as short in the deli and moved me there for the rest of my time there
Good co-workers, friendly management (even though they were stressed out most of the time)
Crew member (Former Employee) – Petoskey, MI – July 13, 2018
Overall, a decent place to work. Pay was lower than comparable jobs, but the co workers were great. It was a union job, which wasn't necessarily a good thing, but eh...you can't win them all. Clean environment, fairly relaxed, even when busy. The jobs were fairly easy, if repetitive and taxing on the body.
Meat Cutter/Butcher (Former Employee) – Florence, KY – July 13, 2018
My immediate manager and the number two in the store both would tell people behind my back that they didn't like me. The second in command at my store blocked my full time benefits for a YEAR when I was hired as full-time, and then smiled at me and said I didn't have enough paid vacation time to take my vacation I'd planned and put in for months ago. That's when I decided to quit - and that's after a year of hoping they'd transfer or fire the cancer that was in that store.
Corporate is actually pretty great but they don't seem to be very good at controlling their in store management team - I will never work for the managers I worked for again, but if the opportunity arises to work for a new crew the compensation was very fair and the benefits package (if I actually get it) was pretty good.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Jeffersonville, IN – July 12, 2018
Meijer was a nice place to work for the most part. There were a few inexperienced Head Cashiers, but management was very knowledgeable. Information was not always conveyed to cashiers that was important for us to know.
Grocery Backroom Team Leader (Current Employee) – Ypsilanti, MI – July 12, 2018
The company does have a family vibe at store level even though it is large. One of the things that kept me longest was the friends I made. Pay and benefits are better than you think, but not the best for management. Very physical which is both an advantage and weakness. Very few weekends off and if you are new be aware that you are likely to begin with part-time hours. As a team leader, you are almost constantly running. At the time I'm writing this, there is a low staffing issue which seems to come and go every 6 months. I was able to grow with this company and receive promotions almost annually, but I know my experience does not relate to most in the company. I have experienced highs and lows working there, but something kept me going for 4 years.
friends, high activity, easy work
understaffing, dealing closely to the public, no weekends off/not always a set schedule
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Jeffersonville, IN – July 12, 2018
Neither was a great place to work for. Working at the gas station was one of the best jobs I have ever had. I do miss it sometimes. But since I have moved on to better job in a call center setting that is full time. I do not have the risk of getting my hours cut.
Stocker/Customer Service (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – July 11, 2018
I really enjoyed the job I had at meijer. My big issue was that it had very poor management. Id love to work at a different one if the opportunity presented itself. I worked the graveyard shift unloading the truck with the forklift and taking the produce to my end the meat to the middle and the dairy to the far end. The dairy guy put away all the dairy as I would unload. Afterwards I was responsible for putting away the meat and all the produce. I was doing 3 peoples jobs by the end of my time there.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – July 11, 2018
It was a productive environment. Things were at a fair pace, co-workers were very helpful, encouraging and honest. There was room to grow if desired, management did their job up to par and so did the co-workers in their efforts to help customers to the best of their abilities.
Merchandiser (part-time) (Former Employee) – Michigan City, IN – July 11, 2018
The managers are super friendly depending on where your working in the store and the employees are even more friendly while still being tired from keeping up with the customers demands. The managers won't ask you to do something they wouldn't do, and everyone is respected
GM Clerk (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – July 11, 2018
I enjoyed working here in the fashion department my co workers were friendly and helped each other out. I didn't like having to cashier at times it would be so crazy. It is a good place to work nice benefits for full time.
