Third Shift Grocery Stocker

July - August 2018 • Jenison, MI

What I liked

I liked how fairly peaceful the store was during third-shift hours; I liked the people I worked with; I liked being able to work without being constantly supervised; and I liked being able to pace myself by taking my breaks and lunch whenever I wanted.

What I wish was different

I wish I had learned the store better so I'd be able to help customers more often without having to ask another employee.

Advice

Be ready to help--both stockers and especially customers--and be prepared to do some slightly heavy lifting from time to time.

Merchandising Intern

May - August 2018 • Walker, MI

What I liked

This internship experience was a great introduction to a big, fast-paced work environment and I was able to learn from many excellent professionals over a variety of departments.

What I wish was different

You are given a mentor and a first assistant (boss), my mentor was amazing and I learned so much from her, but I wish that my first assistant would have been more hands-on.

Advice

Bring your A-game. Most of the other interns are from Ivy League schools or Big Ten business schools, so the competition is stiff.

Own Brand Merchandising Intern

May - August 2018 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

I LOVED the team I worked with this summer - a bright, cross-functional team that was focused on winning.

What I wish was different

Nothing really. I have enjoyed working for Meijer for 3 years so not much came as a complete surprise to me.

Advice

Work hard. This means showing up early and staying late to get work done - this does not mean milking the clock and being dishonest on company time. Always be diligent. Perform at a high level and complete quality work.

Cashier

June - August 2018 • Rockford, MI

What I liked

The job suited my skill set and challenged me to work long hours with difficult people. But this made me learn to appreciate the kind customers and practice showing kindness to every person, regardless of their behavior. The Meijer community is also very kind and accepting. The team was very personable and wanted to help me.

What I wish was different

I worked second shift which didn't line up well with my family's schedules, so I missed a few celebrations and reunions. Also, you are tempted to wish that everyone knows how to be a better customer because cashiering is actually quite difficult.

Advice

Make friends! It can feel really lonely when you're mostly working by yourself for a long time. Step out of your comfort zone and be personable with customers (especially the regular ones) and your teammates. It makes the time go by much faster and more pleasantly.
