Cashier

September - November 2019 • Auburn Hills, MI

What I liked

Meijer is incredibly flexible with student schedules; you can tell them your availability, how many/what hours you want to work, and they will make sure to make that happen for you. If you're transparent about your availability from the start, they will give you a consistent weekly schedule that you can count on. The job itself is nice! 5 hour minimum shifts, with all of them going by very quickly as you're always ringing people up, cleaning, or pushing carts. Would definitely recommend as part time student work.

What I wish was different

Nothing awful from my memory! Just be sure of your schedule and availability from the start; any times you say you are available to work? If they are a 'non preferred time' (e.g. Saturday/Sunday), it will be a requirement for your hiring that you work that time always.

Advice

Show up on time, be professional, don't let any bad moments/interactions get under your skin. It's definitely a lot at first, but if you keep your head up you can enjoy your time here!

Deli Clerk

August 2017 • Rockford, MI

What I liked

Every coworker at this job has been extremely helpful.

What I wish was different

I wish that the managers that I had in my department stayed because they really made it a better work environment.

Advice

Meijer is a decent place to work for, with decent pay. You get raises every 700 hours, health insurance, 401K's, you can be apart of the union, and you have a chance of becoming a team leader if you work hard enough.

Tax Compliance Intern

May - August 2019 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

I was the only tax intern, so I received a lot of exposure to different taxation concepts. Meijer's culture is phenomenal and they clearly take their interns seriously. I liked living at home while being able to save money from my internship.

What I wish was different

I realized that public accounting may be a better fit as it offers more flexibility with travel and office location. I also wish I got to know other interns better, but being the only intern within the tax department, I found it challenging.

Advice

Know that you are being taken seriously and Meijer is actively looking to hire interns for full-time.
