Meat Carver | Battle Creek, MI | Aug 8, 2013
Worse Than Walmart
A typical day at my job would begin with a punch into the time clock and I would immediately head to my department. For me I worked in meat. I was supposed to work all the back stock and all of the new items and sale items in the cooler and if that wasn't too bad sometimes they would send me to the deep freezer to stock and rotate product from there. My boss was laid back about stocking speed but wanted me to ideally have an entire case emptied and the product rotated in thirty seconds to one minute max. While stocking the meat from the cooler, I was also in charge of keeping an eye on the fresh chicken. If it was low I had to run into the cooler to get more and restock. The packages of fresh chicken weighed 50-70 pounds per case. Two hours before I my shift's end, I was often the department closer so I had to put all my stuff away and head over to the counter. Closing counter duties began with taking the afternoon temp check in the fresh fish case, lobster tank, seafood cooler, seafood case, deep freezer, fresh meat case and the seven other coffin cases on the sales floor. And if the other person didn't do theirs for their shift I'd have to do it twice. This was especially frustrating while trying to wait on customers at the counter. Sometimes other team members would wait on them to help me out. Other duties for closing were as followed: Wrap all fresh meat by hand and wheel on rack through prep room and into cooler, sweep floor, remove all tags for fresh se

Toxic, Unfair, Bad management, if I could give a -5 star rating I would
I started working for Meijer on Gull Road in Kalamazoo MI, In January 2019. When I started I could tell right away that they were short on staff in the service department (cashier, greeters, and cart return). I figured it is a minimum wage job it's probably normal. my first month working there I was new so the management treated me very well, but I could tell that the other cashiers around me were not being treated the same. the second month in all but three people including myself from my seven group orientation had quit. by this point, I was now not only working the cash register but also working the self check out. just for an idea on how stressful working the self check out. on the grocery side (which is where I was) has nine registers, while watching all nine on your one, you must also keep them all clean, bags stacked, recipe paper full, ask every customer to take the survey, put carts back over to the greeters area, answer the phone, collect the coupons from the computers or they will become jammed, keep your phone, keys, and hand scanner on you at all times, and help all customer with anything they may need you for. As in purchasing alcohol, heavy items, a coupon that isn't scanning, figure out why the item that may or may not be on sale isn't ringing upright, or any of the many other questions they may have. Also, you need to talk on the phone at the same time for reasons like calling for curbside pickup, calling for you cold items to go back, a bard code isn't wor

terrible, last resort kind of job
There are so many reasons why no one should ever work here. A typical day consists of arriving to work knowing what your day SHOULD be and having to do just about everyone else's job. Then you are chastised for not being able to complete your job when you're already doing four people's jobs in your own position, not to mention everything else they throw on top of you. The team I was on was supposed to have a minimum of ten people and we had three people for almost six months and they finally got us a new person the week of Thanksgiving. They gave us someone to train during Black Friday week after dragging their feet for MONTHS! And to top THAT off, they cut 12 hours from everyone's week so we had the busiest week of the year with the whole store operating at 28 hours or less instead of 40 and we were supposed to train a new person to be on a three person team with more than ten people's amount of work. Which leads me to training. There was none. The lady who was supposed to train me on how to do the job who had been at Meijer for longer than I had been alive, just made me follow her around for three weeks, telling me all about her intimate life and family and how much she likes to indulge. There are zero training programs implemented and management doesn't care about whether you get trained properly or not. They just want the job done. I talked to multiple people in the store who said they had the same experience. The manager I had couldn't do anything that I could do in m

Clerk
While I mainly enjoy my work, especially my coworkers, I don't feel that I was properly trained, or informed of some important expectations at all. So, i wanted to try and wrote a review that may help anybody entering Meijer as a new employee! In orientation, they didn't inform you that if you're one minute late from a (15 min) break you're docked a half point. Theres not much of a grace period for tardiness, 1-1/2 minutes is it. The problem with this is customers often (ok always!) need help and you're almost always stopped before you can punch in. Even if your badge is not on. I've been told there are routes to take to avoid this. You're technically not supposed to avoid customers, but while new, it's best to find that route! TIP: If you're more than a minute late from your break, and a customer has stopped you, or you notice a spill and clean it, COMMUNICATE this to your Team Leader that a customer stopped you. This is very important. Make sure they note that you punched late because of it. Management can be very accommodating, about this they know jyst as well that customers stop us frequently. They take it into consideration, and likely won't punish you because you helped a customer, or prevented an accident. It's not something that you're told in orientation or training, probably because many can and will abuse it. Just don't make it a habit and you'll be ok. You cannot punch in for the day until 2 minutes before your shift, not a minute earlier! Be by the register or c

My time at Meijer
Working at meijer is very exhausting. Most of my day usually consist of stocking and maintance of the work place, not to mention helping customers along the way. For the most part some of the stuff I learned mainly come from looking it up on the intranet. Though the intranet is limited to a few things inside the stores network, you also have very limited access to the internet, but the learning tools needed come from Cyber Scholar about some of the products. You really can't dig deep into main sites such as Sony.com or Adobe but you can get your info from Cyber Scholar, but only on what's current and nothing two years in the past with product. At least the meijer that I work in, most of the information that you NEED to know, they really won't tell you until it gets close to the time that it needs to get done. I always have to investigate to get the info from what I need. Most of the managers that I have worked with, are really nice. They're are a few exceptions but I believe that is everywhere. For the good ones, They will listen to you if you come to them with ideas and will at least consider it. They are willing to talk to about most things, work related or not. The bad ones however, will yell at you and make it uncomfortable for you at work and will never listen to what you have to say. My co-workers, I like them all, except for maybe two of them at best. We all get along and we all get our work done as fast as we can. They really make you feel like you are part of team

On a typical day...
A typical day at work, you go into the back, quickly walk up to punch in about 3 minutes before your shift, punch in, pull badge out, add bags, open them, call an appropriate worker to help any customers that asked you for help on the way up, hit your light and take down your chain if your service coordinator hasn’t already, smile and greet customers ring up and bag their groceries in the appropriate bags, say their total, count their money or put their check through the machine, or wait if they’re paying with a card, hand them their receipt, and tell them to have a nice day or something along those lines, then if you have no one else in your line go out into the aisle and greet people and try to get them in your lane, if the register says you have to do a cash pick up you have to call your SC (service coordinator) to collect all the 100’s, 50’s, 2’s, and 5 20’s, when they come to get it you finish your customer, put it in a bag with your initials, lane number, and amount if your on audit, you guess peoples age and approve them for alcohol, M and R rated video games and movies, poppers, and dry ice, if they look 40+ or ask ID if they look younger at the end of the transaction, if they want you to approve or card them before the end you have to scan all restricted items first or the machine may freeze, you use the magnet to take any security devices off of expensive items, use the gun to scan big items, type in codes for and weigh certain produce, and always check the bottom o

Grocery Associate | Standale, MI | Feb 1, 2015
A fast paced work place, with a lot of awesome customers
Going to work, every day was hectic, with an endless amount of things to do to keep me busy. I'd either stock shelves in dry foods (also known as grocery) or I'd be working in the dairy cooler or in the frozen section, and help the receiving team on occasion with sorting product off of the truck when times got really busy. Working in the dairy cooler and in the frozen section taught me how to work independently because while the dry goods section of the store covered the most aisles, the other two sections (dairy and frozen) were not constantly being checked by the manager, and instead it was up to the team member to find out what needed to be stocked and to search for the product to shelve. The frozen section at the Meijer I worked at constantly involved organization, because we had a lot of supply and little room to store everything, so to get everything to fit, it had to be treated like a jigsaw puzzle with every cart and skid placed being as close together as possible. One thing I disliked about Meijer is that it has a union, not saying that unions are bad, but saying that people take advantage of union far too much. I like to remain ahead and on top of things during work, and in a grocery store that's pretty tough to accomplish. I worked hard and diligently during my time there, making sure I could do as much as possible to get the job done, even working twice as hard when a team member decided to be lazy and work sluggishly to pass the time. I enjoy the gratific

Cashier/Stocker | Manistee, MI | Aug 10, 2021
Spiraling the drain
Unreasonable expectations. Understaffing as a policy rather than a mistake. Management has complete disregard for maintaining employees, viewing them as cheap and disposable. No effort is made to retain good employees or reward them. Being a good employee subjects you to more work and more stress, but never any more pay. The more you give, the more they will take. Always asking for favors, never returning them. Issues go unaddressed or addressing them makes more of a problem. It is not worth bringing things forward and risking exposing yourself to retaliation. Communication is practically non-exist with leadership often giving conflicting directions, then blaming the team. Management views the team as below them, unworthy of respect or dignity, and unable to think for themselves. They are not viewed as people, but cogs in the machine. You're replaceable. They'll make sure you know it. If you get hurt on the job prepare for unprovable retaliation, lost paperwork, and potentially losing your job completely. Upper management are not held accountable for their actions. They are not expected to tell the truth to their teams and will lie without care. They do as they please. Rules are applied haphazardly. People that they want to retaliate against will have each and every rule strictly enforced, while no others are punished. Favorite employees are given preferential treatment, staffing and scheduling. Covid-19 protections are all lip service. The screenings to determine if emp

Nice job at first but ended up horrible
I started out as a cashier even though I applied for a night stocking position. I had 4 years cashing experience beforehand so it wasn’t anything new to me. Cashing at Meijer was awful. The customers were on a whole other level. For example: a woman was buying bell peppers. They rang up $.89. She said they were sale so I tried calling the produce department which is protocol. They weren’t answering me so she stormed off. She came back to my lane with the metal sign in hand that said they were $.02 off. I apologized and said it wasn’t that I thought she was lying, it was apart of my job to double check so that’s why I called produce. She started calling me a bunch of names and threw the sign at me over the counter just screaming over and over that I was a horrible employee. My manager came over and calmed the situation down but I was written up because the customer was dissatisfied. The management never, ever has the employees back. I’ve had a red bull thrown at my head (because the lady couldn’t afford her total and I wouldn’t give it to her for free), customers screaming at me, etc. and each time the blame was placed on me and I got in trouble no matter what. After three months, I was finally offered the stocking job I applied for because they needed help at night. It was fine at first, it was just stocking the GM and health side but once again, management was horrible. They did not care about us at all. People were leaving left and right because they hated how badly they we

Hectic, miserable work environment
A typical day at work is very crazy. Often we dont have the cashier staff on hand to cover all the customers because management feels that were not busy enough in the middle of the week to justify scheduling more employees. Since we lack the staff we need (and the customers recognize how short staffed we are) we often get held over for 1.5-3 hrs past our scheduled out time. This gets frustrating when every shift you know you are not going to get out on time. Worst part is that the hold depends on the subjective assessment of the service coordinators (some of whom are younger than 75% of the staff). Half the SC's will hold you even if we're slow to a crawl just because they're overly cautious. Our jobs are made more stressful by all the sales in place. Mperks locks us out of the system for like half a min while it processes so it breaks our rhythm of scanning. Some sales like vitamins and supplement BOGO never are in the system so we have to call and slow down the process more. about 75% of the time clearance items are marked in the system wrong and we get yelled at thats not what was marked. The scanners are so outdates that we cant even use them on clearance tags. There's a lot of office politics...the same people always get put on the self checkout leaving the rest of us to rot on the normal lanes which tend to have 8 person lines some days due to there being only 1 12 items or less lane (another favorite customer complaint ive heard) Management phones are never on so there

The team you work with will likely be your family for the entirety of your employment. My favorite part was being able to look forward to working and the winning attitude of my team added to overall atmosphere of the workplace. They really pushed me to be the best me I can be, and that’s more than what other grocery retailers I’ve worked for can say.

Meijer needs a bigger and more efficient back room. They need enough people on third shift to get all the work done. No body should be working over 40 hours. They need to pay their employees <$14. Forget the greet scores.
