Meijer History

Meijer was founded in 1934 in Greenville by Hendrik Meijer.  The first employee was Hendrik’s 14 year old son Frederik (Fred) Meijer.  Additional locations were opened in Ionia and Cedar Springs.

By the 1960s, there were two dozen locations in Western Michigan.

In 1962, the first modern layout “supercenter” design was opened in Grand Rapids.

Under increased competition from Wal-Mart, Meijer has had to lay off a significant number of employees in recent years.  They have also outsourced almost all their Information Technology positions to India.

In 2011, long time CEO Fred Meijer passed away at the age of 91.

Today, Meijer is one of America’s largest private companies.  They operate nearly 200 stores in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky.

Being with meijers for over 8years I feel that need to send this email. I know that they have been hiring a lot of x Walmart managers ,but since they have come in they are not running up too meijers standards, now this might be the plan, I do not know so l wanted to let you know. Our back room is never clean up be fore the next truck, they never have enough workers on the floor every day to keep the store klept ou or help the customers the way it should be down,it seems that meijer has chane the way Fred meijer wanted it to be. Thank you

I worked at meijer for almost two years, I loved my job and I was a very good worker. I get called in to security and he was questioning me about ONE coupon, he asked where I got my coupons from I told him I or one of my kids or a family member give it to me and he told me because I took one for a family that didn’t live in my house that i used a coupon that didn’t belong to me, I had no idea that was wrong so he suspended me and two weeks later, I was fired. I don’t think I should have been fired, you can’t go to anyone for help not your team leaders or the store director, ONE coupon should not cost you your job

My daughter who still lives in Michigan and went to the store on westnedge in portage, michigan and was trying to get her wic. She honestly trys and is a amazing mom and your system . i guess was down she was told after trying twice and her son was acting a fool and it is hard to do what u need to while dealing with all this. I feel your people should be more like I was and very helpful and always trying to fix the problem. Instead of how things went down and now basically she wasted two hours for what

I think it is high time management at store 173 is looked at. Some, not all the managers are arrogant, selfish and only look out for themselves to make sure a job gets done and they look good. It isn’t enough you work 40-55 hours a week for them. 6 days a week. Give up all your free time and stay after. Or forced to stay even if you have other things to take care of. They more or less tell you too bad you need to stay here and get a job done. You can do all the work in the world plus half of someone else’s and what happens….. you need to do more. Also doesn’t help that we are beyond short handed and you hire no one and or people who will only work 2 or 3 days a week 4 hours a day.

Or how about if you ask something or need something, there isn’t time for that unless your job is done or unless the managers aren’t sitting around in an office laughing it up. Then only come around when something isn’t right and yell at you. Even if on the floor in front of customers. What kind of manager is that to do all this and expect people to want to work hard or harder when they are unappreciated. It isn’t fun anymore. The job feels like a death sentence half the time. Please, please look into this. You’re losing more people day by day because no one want to put up with it.

I have never had so many problems before trying to get a photo book made. I have never made a photo book but heard they are nice so I First went to Meijers on Central Ave in Toledo, machines are all set up but the system is not user friendly, I had to try to get help several times and when finally done they told me it would be done early am next day.. Ok so I go back the next day to be told the machine is down and no clue when it would be fixed. I cancel my order since I work near a Meijers in Maumee, after work I go and again try to get help the employees have no clue I knew more than them at this point and hear her talking to another employee about she’s not sure what paper to use for a custom book.. Huh I just walk out drive and hour to Alexis Meijers in Toledo. Nathan was amazing helped me in detail add things to my book showed me styles he is great I felt so good finished my book and he said give him a little over an hour to make it perfect. I was excited figured I would have dinner, do a little shopping but then I get a call from Nathan the machine is broken and he’s not sure when it will be fixed. I know none of my experience is Nathan’s fault he was the only bright spot in this experience but now I still do not have my photo book that was to be a gift for my daughter. Very disappointed in Meijers and seriously thinking about trying Costco online. My feet hurt from walking to the back of three Meijers stores to have nothing to show for it. Moving my business elsewhere!

I have been a loyal and satisfied customer for years, however, recent corporate decisions have made shopping a dread. Advertised items are not on the shelves, but sometimes in back and not yet stocked. Shopping on the week-end usually means nothing you came for is available and you must get a rain check if you want to waste ,yet, more time. Yesterday, I was happy to see that a favorite wine was on sale. Though the shelf label was correct, another wine was stocked in its place and none of the four people in the area (store employees and wine vendors) were able to tell me if it was discontinued. It was not in a different area, as I wasted time attempting a search. There is no accountability, probably due to a broken organizational system. Employees are understaffed (as evidenced by inability to stock products already delivered), underpaid and disenchanted (as evidenced by poor retention and poor working conditions). Consumers are disrespected by lack of advertised items, decreasing brand selection, disregard for the time spent on futile searches and communications. I hope that your attempts at being competitive also impact the corporate hierarchy responsible for the poor decisions that will bring your business to its knees and threaten survival of my neighborhood store.

I think it’s time to say something positive about Meijer. I have shopped
at Meijer for fifty three years and at different locations and have never found the things
that are mentioned above. In spite of all the complaints I have found the prices have always been the lowest including Walmart. If it’s not n sale today wait for a few days and it
will go on sale. I have always found food to be fresh and never outdated. It makes me wonder how true all these comments are. In a court of law one would have to prove what they are saying or the issue would be thrown out! Meijer must be dong something right or they wouldn’t still be in business. Where is Kroger, D&W, Plumbs and all the rest who used to be here in Grand Rapids?
I have always found Meijer to be the cleanest store and most clerks to be nice. The one who aren’t will change very fast if reported. You know Meijer has to hire from the people who apply and the people who apply are the people in that area so it says something about
the people in the area so don’t blame Meijer.
Thank you,

Went to Meijer Store # 178 in Aurora Illinois on 04/23/16. Promotion was on for horizon milk. If you two you get Horizon Macaroni cheese organic pack free. To my dismay when I did check the Macaroni it was expired on Apr-08. They had about 25 boxes of Macaroni sitting on the shelf -ALL EXPIRED. What a shame. Macaroni being a children’s food and they had no clue that they had 25 boxes sitting on the shelf expired 2 weeks ago. For sure I called the manager and he apologised and removed the boxes of the shelf. I will be doing random check again on the same product. They better be ready as this will be addressed to consumer affairs and eventually FDA now.

It’s great your stores have organic produce. Please continue to upgrade your grocery items. I bought of a loaf Meijer pumpernickel bread and was extremely disappointed by the plastic-y tastelessness. My sister, who had some, said she’d take it back. Instead, I’m going to recommend to various Meijer personnel that you further your efforts to provide better and healthier food. Have you got some kind of office that oversees progress toward providing healthier, more tasteful food?

Hi meijer, please tell me why i mailed into you documentation of me and my husbands hospital visit bills it has been 3 weeks and i have not herd anything back from anyone, in the begining i was mailed 2 release forms one for 100$, for my husband and 100$ for myself tiffany alaweia, i cqlled back bc that was only the money we had to pay downn , just to be seen by the clinic bc i have no insurance right now , my husband and i bought cooked chicken and it was bloody, my husband and i took it back they took pictures everything. To make sure it was bood sure enough it was , a couple days later well that was the start of visiting the urgent care every other day, my husband and i had gotten really sick. They wanted all the original documents and i sent them. Inwaited 2 weeks before i started calling and now commenting. Nsxt step is im going to get a lawyer and sue. I really dont want to do that, but first i will email pictures of the chicken and a short story to what happend and send it to all tv news channels. In detriot in the newspapers everything, first me and my husband get hush your mouth releases for 200$ not even 10% of what we have paid and now i refuse to sighn them all i want is the money we paid for the doctor visits. And the doctor stays, obviously they seen the bloody chicken and they know it was the truth or they wouldnt have given us the 200$ releases. I just want to know why you all just forget about people like me. I dont ask for much , i provide the proof. I call im polite and understanding. And didnt want to make meijer look bad over emails like this or bad moth them on facebook and newschannels. Or news letters, and i didnt jump sue happy. A lot of people in my shoes would have already been lawyerd up and ready for action, with all the proof i have ,how sick me and my husband got. All we asked for was to be respected and to get our money back, and now nobody is calling us back, and i paid to have that mail sent next day priority , there no way they didnt get it! Even if yall didnt get it. A simple call back to let us know that would be nice a simple answering of the phone something ,but instead i get a f*** you tiffany alaweia , i feel like they think im going to forget. But really be smart meijer. Just give me the releases for the 1500$ and pay us what you owe us. If someone dose not contact us with in 7 days i will be calling my lawyer like i said. Newspaper facebook twitter every news tv show to submit the pictures of the chicken, the releases and my story, so please save us both the trouble and time. And settle with me. All i want is most of the money we had to pay to be seen , that is it. That compared to a quadruple the amount of that i think is very fair,

All i want is what my husband and i already paid for thag is it. By the way whomever is reading this i dont mean to come off as a asshole i just want the money back that i had to pay bc me and my husband got $ick off of your chicken.

She was very disappointed to know that she spent $158.00 on this item and she misplaced the reciept and we have gone to 3 different miejers that will not return it or give her store credit for it. She works a part time job and saved her money for 2 months to buy this. Now she can’t get a store credit to buy him something else. What do we do with this product we won’t use?? Please help us with this problem soon! Thank you! Sincerely very frustrated customer

My wife works for your White Lake, Mi store. I am very disappointed with how you run your store. She is a cashier and her direct supervisors Elaine and Kira are the worst people i have every met. They threaten and belittle several of the cashiers including my wife and have even yelled at my daughter and my wife for my daughter yelling hi mommy when we were shopping. I am very disappointed in the people you put in charge of your stores. My daughter is only 4 yrs old and they had the nerve to yell at her in front of several customers. Just so its public record if they harass her or my child one more time i will be calling my lawyer and taking you guys to court for harassment and verbal assault of a minor child. Also defamation of character for calling my wife a depressive person in front of customers and coworkers when she is the most up beat person i have ever met. So now you know if you ever read this that you have a lot of work to do in a short time because i will not stand for this harassment of my family any longer.

Annoyed Customer March 10, 2016 at 8:03 am

For shame, Meijer — for shame ! You “used” to have value pricing and one-stop shopping. Since Fred passed away, Hank and Doug Meijer are all about money. Theirs, that is. Prices are barely different from the competitors. Even worse, always but always long lines for cashier checkouts. No, not everyone wants to do self-checkout.

The final straw? Bringing in so much gluten-free products and eliminating products that people with lower incomes can afford (e.g. senior citizens, poor folks). Oh, and the clothing: I’d like to see Lena Meijer wear some of those women’s “fashions”. It’s all about the 18-30 year olds.

By the way, Meijer family: it is the CUSTOMER who buys your products that allows the Meijer Family to pay employees. As such, you – Meijer – need to instill that in your store employees.

BTW, you need to run a decent virus check on your computers. Supposedly, it is “da computer” that reorders merchandise. Well, your computers have a big problem.

They definitely only are interested in customers that spend little to no money offering them coupons and rewards in mperks that fit those non-shoppers. I have had it with Meijer. My favorite place to shop for over 30 years JUST LOST MY BUSINESS and my $1000.00 per month. You can’t even get to anyone to talk to them about anything. They might as well send their customer service to over seas because they no longer care about the customer.
Thanks!

I was in Meijer in Benton Harbor,MI. on 1/24/2016 the belt on conveyor did not work, so I pushed all my stuff up to cashier, she rang everything up and I in put all my info for Mperks along with debit information everything went through except another cashier came over and shut lane down before my receipt printed. Then proceeded to tell me I needed to move to another lane to be rang up again.
Ok fine but it already took my debit card, I’m not going to be charged twice am I? No you won’t…………..WELL LOW AND BEHOLD I was charged 2-times and am still fighting with them over the second debit charge…………I have talked to 4 different people at this point that keep saying give it a day it will be ok………….NOT….IT’S BEEN 4 DAYS AND STILL FIGHTING……….CASH ONLY FROM HERE ON OUT OR MAYBE WALMART/ ALDI INSTEAD…I just want my second charge returned to my bank account……

I will not longer be shopping at your store for anything. The customer service by your pharmacist at the Walled Lake, Michigan store was horrible. Mr. Sava Dikantonis said, ” I don’t feel comfortable filling this prescription.” He said that I filled it four times in three months. Mr Dikantonis did not call my Doctor or ask even a single questions. I guess that my purse had been stolen along with my medication was not worth knowing. I dropped my prescription off on 10-21-2015 and was told that it needed to be ordered and I could pick it up on 12-01-2015.
It took four days for Mr. Dikantonis to call me and let me know that he did not feel comfortable filling the prescription. Mr. Dikantonis is the Pharmacy Manager. I had to pick up my prescription and only have a few days to get it filled before leaving on a trip. I will never fill prescriptions at this store or any other Meijer. I will not shop at this store or any other Meijer, for anything ever again. Mr. Dikantonis just cost you a customer of twenty five years. Mr. Dikantonis has ever right to show concern and do his job to the best of his ability. However, he did not bother to ask a single question of me or my doctor. He never stated what his concern was. He simply assumed the worse. My doctor doesn’t have any concerns with writing the prescription or me taking it. My doctor is the person that knows all my relevant health information, my medical problems, my lab work etc. My insurance provider doesn’t have a problem covering the cost of the medication. However, the pharmacist that doesn’t know anything and didn’t bother to follow up doesn’t feel comfortable. If he had talked with my doctor or me and made a similar decision I might be able to understand his point of view. I will be contacting my attorney to looking into any legal options that I can pursue regarding Mr. Dikantonis and the Meijer corporation.

Thank you

I used to buy a 2 medicine every month at Meijier Okemos. These medicines are my life saving medicine. My doctor asked me to take both the medicine daily. Both the medicine has same prescriptions expiry date. This month they were billing me only 1 medicine. They told other medicine has expired prescription date. How could be? I talked to the manager with no avail. I came home and checked both the prescriptions have same expiry date.

Last month they refilled me one medicine incorrectly. The doctor ordered 90 tablets but they refilled only 30 tablet. Worst service. Never play others life but Meijier Okemos doing it. .

The vision center in Merrillville closed down. I needed my script for a new pair of glasses and was directed to an answering machine that asked me to send a letter and a SASE to send the script back twice. Wrote to corporate and got no response. A letter came from grand rapids that contained 4 blank “releases of information” with no instructions or return address, or indication that it was from meijer. This process has been six months. I’ve emailed this website twice. I went to Wal-Mart and bought A new pair. wITH a new exam for 200$ cheaper – SAME PAIR. Rediculous.

For several months, the Meijer Store’s Pharmacy on Rt. 331, Mishawaka, IN has had difficulties filling prescriptions in a timely manner. The reason they gave was that their customer-numbers doubled. That was several months ago – and the prescriptions service STILL is not acceptable. Meijer Pharmacy claims they sent a fax to my cardiologist requesting a refill on a blood thinner. However, my cardiologist’s nurse claims she did not receive such a fax. This is not the first time this has happened and since my cardiologist’s office has never NOT called, I believe them – Meijer did not send a fax. After waiting a week, I called the doctor’s office and asked the nurse to call in the prescription, which she did on the 19th of Oct. No call from Meijer, but on the 21st of Oct., I went to pharmacy anyway to get meds (by this time, I was out of meds). I was told that they were out of the meds but would have the script tomorrow (today) after 1pm. Rather than go, I called and guess what – no meds but I was told I could come in tomorrow and the script would be available.

I am moving my prescription requests to another pharmacy and will no longer shop at Meijer. Either the pharmacy is poorly run in that store or the store is not tended to by the corporate office.

Sue Stone November 18, 2015 at 9:17 am

I too have RX at this store and will be moving them. they are the slowest in filling your script and when it comes time to renew your script a simple phone call to me the patient would be nice. I feel I hired them to take care of my prescriptions and that informing the patient when an issue needs to be addressed would be part of their job. I worked at Meijer for 11 years and I know that things don’t run as you would like sometimes but this is a consistent way of doing business. I hope that somehow you can resolve this issue with their time management and their courtesy to their patients.

My local Meijer store on Mich. Ave. in Jackson, MI had a sale that stated “buy 3 fashion panties, get 2 free”. At checkout, 4 rang up regular price (clearance was excluded from sale), 1 rang up clearance (it did not have a clearance tag and looked EXACTLY like the others). I had already paid before I saw it so I went to customer service. Cassidy at customer service called the dept. worker who proceeded to say “They have to be of certain brands”. I told Cassidy I would be right back, I was going to bring the sign back to her. Took me a whole 20 seconds to get there and NO worker was anywhere around. Page(was her name) lied(lazy) when she told Cassidy that. Once Cassidy saw the sign, her only response was “well this panty rings up clearance, so if you want to go back and pick a different one” (so that I can go pick another unmarked “clearance” panty). Interesting that the “5th” rings up as one that is excluded. Wonder how many people that happens to? Wouldn’t happen to be a “glitch”(or program) to steal from innocent shoppers. I guess Meijer is now one of those stores that we tell people about when we talk of “buyer beware”. Of course this isn’t the only problem I’ve had with Meijer but it will be my LAST! When I called Corporate I was transferred to the 2nd shift Manager who is a joke. When Jim Montgomery ran that store, it was a pleasure to shop in, now it’s just another rundown, filthy, scamming business who can only hire the most desperate employees because the best employees have moved on. As anyone knows, a business climate is a trickle down business. If it’s happening at the bottom, It must have been started at the top. So I’m turning in my shopping resignation to anyone who probably doesn’t care there. It was only worth about $15,000.00 a year or so, give or take a $1,000.00. But that must be chump change to Hank after seeing all the complaints about Meijer I have seen, because those people, like myself, have decided we are done dealing with a company that doesn’t care about it’s customers or employee’s. Sure miss Fred. Good Riddance

I was told today that she had a interview at West Central Ave store in Sylvania Ohio the other day. It didn’t go to good for her, she told me she had her second interview by a man named Mike. During the interview her asked her how bad she needs the job and what she’s willing to do for a third interview. She told him to get bent and walked out. I guess if you want a job with that store you need to do something for it.

Wow, the Northville Meijer really doesn’t want new business! I just spent 28 unsuccessful minutes trying to reach someone at this store. I was literally sitting in the parking lot with three little kids, and just wanted to ask someone if they carried a particular product, before dragginh my three kids (including a newborn), into the store to find out. I first sat on the one for 15 minutes at the general customer service line with one ever answering. I finally hung up and used the automated system to get in touch with the sporting good department, but after waiting 13 minutes there with absolutely no answer, I hung up. I then called Walmart and they answered in about 6 seconds, and I ended up driving across town to that store instead. Totally ridiculous! This is terrible business and definitely not reflective of a high quality, customer friendly store. Obviously Meijer is now no longer on my list of preferred shopping locations.

Bad to employees. I worked there from January until last Tuesday. Everything was fine until our team leader transfered and we got a new one named Jay.
First I had to take sundays off because I’m a recovering alcoholic (ada protected class meijers) and live in a recovery house which requires a group on Sunday and other house obligations that must be done on that day.
“No problem.” Sayeth the team lead.
Then my hours got cut.
Called corporate got a reference number ironically that can’t be found now….also talked to the regional hr that defended the shenanigans.

Then conviently I’m constantly “late from breaks”
Then came the day I bent over to scan water under a cart…came up and banged my head on the bag carosel. I went home early from being dizzy….got penalized for that…

Gets better….one month and three ‘late breaks’ later….called into the office. Lol…paper work for banging my head….oh and as I’m walking out of the office…he’s checking off ‘unsafe practices’.

The the VERY NEXT DAY, ironically I’m on a cash audit where they monitor my drawer. Which doesn’t bother me…lol…had someone not been on that drawer since six a.m. and I started at noon.
With all this nonsense, I quit. I had finally had it. I called our regional hr …Tracy Pruitt about the issues ( which had been discussed weeks ago as well) and her ” big issue is I walked off the job”.

Unbelievable.

And to think meijers is anti union. Small wonder.

It’s really a paradox because I loved the customers, but all the managers of the Elgin,il store leave me repulsed. I’m no idiot, I ran my own business for ten years which sold heavy…. But I do know one thing….you can’t treat employees the way they do and expect them to stay. Period.

Horrible for the customers…. Even worse for the employee….

Same as above, but they also violate the Americans with disabilities act, as well as the EEOC!!! Discriminatory does not even begin to describe how they treat their employees. They differ greatly from how Richard Branson treats and respects his employees. ALL employers should have Mr. Branson’s attitude!

Im begging someone anyone to clean up the Noblesville, In store entrance. The entrance is littered with cigarette butts and trash. The employees will sit outside and smoke or drink a pop and just disgard their empty cans and butts on the sidewalk entrance during their break. I bring it to the attention of employees but it always looks terrible. I guess it’s time to take my $1000 a month across the street to the competitor.

My experience about complaint resembles the experience Brittany had. I bought Meijer Brand LED bulbs from Meijer store #34 in Royal Oak, MI. The bulbs regular price is $5.99 each but in the store where they keep these bulbs, there is a yellow sticker for $2.99 each (from 8/24/2015) to 10/18/2015. The scanner rings at $5.99 and when I brought that to customer service rep at the store, she told me that someone must have put the sticker by mistake. But, in fact, most of the meijer stores in my area has the same sticker showing $2.99 price. I asked for scanner reward, but she refused stating that the sticker was there by mistake and that is not true. She did give me the difference back. MI scanner law clearly states that I am eligible for the scanner reward. So, I filed the complaint at Meijer web-site and just like other complaints it is being ignored. No one has even bothered to contact. This is really wrong that Meijer is showing one price where the product is located and charging customers a higher price.
When will they own up and cleanup their act?

First, I must say that I did come to this site to voice a complaint but after seeing where all of these complaints were noted, I find it disheartening to not see any responses by the corporate office. I’m really hoping that these are being responded to.
Second, I have already sent my complaint through the customer service route just to be ignored, hence the reason I’m here.
My complaint involves a store in Louisville, KY. I went to the store specifically for fruit. Wow, won’t make that mistake again. The majority of the containers in the strawberry display were full of mold. I’m not exagerrating. I even took a picture because of how insane this sounds that a store would have a display like this. While the bananas weren’t as bad as the strawberries, they weren’t great so needless to say, I left the store without buying fruit. Quite frankly, I have no desire to visit this store again in the near future.

In August I had to enroll in Medicare. I have not been given my pharmacy M Perks since doing this. I called and the very rude person from Meijer told me that the Federal government won’t allow Meijer to give M Perks. That I might be reimbursed by Medicare for my scripts. They do not reimburse me. I now have to pay $195.00 for one script that I used to pay $40.00 for. I had Blue Cross when covered by my husband, and then I had to go to Blue Cross on Obama Care, which is a Federally subsidized program. I had no problem there. I don’t believe that I can’t get these M Perks on Medicare. I feel I am being lied to. I will not only be sending my scripts elsewhere, I will also do my weekly shopping elsewhere.

It is true that a lot of the perks you get on regular insurance you can not get on Medicare. Including coupons, read those closely you will find the federal government will not let you have or use many things now that you have Medicare. If you are low income you can apply for Extra Help from Social Security and they will help pay most of your Rx fees.

Went to my local Meijer store on Shaver Rd. in Portage ,Mi on Wednesday afternoon August 16th 2015 to pick up my husbands prescription. Signed and paid copay and took them home. Thank God my husband looked at them before taking his dailey pills for high blood presure which he has been taking for years. His medication has Always been filled by the Meijer pharmacy. He looked at the pills they looked different and the name was different. He looked online only to find out he was given medication for MS. This is a Serious medication and if he had taken these drugs it could have had Major consequences! OMG! How could this Happen? Called the store and corp offices. No calls back! Maybe a lawyer would be affective. This is not an excusable mistake!
All of our family prescriptions have been pulled and sent elsewhere. Get your Act together Meijer before someone is really Hurt!

The bottle return machines were not working at the store on westnedge in portage. After the greeter said he could not find the pad to write me a receipt for the 20 or so glass containers, I asked for a manager. The bottle return clerk came and retrieve d the receipt pad from the same place the greeter used the phone. Then the “manager” came & as I was talking his phone rang and he asked if he could take the call and answered it! I said NO and walked away. I don’t think I could’ve felt more belittled at that point. To top things off there is a sign in the bottle room which says “use red phone for assistance” There is one long wire coming out of the wall with nothing connected to it! Customer service at Meijer = one sad joke! Why expect anything. The canned “did you find everything you needed” from the checkout clerks is insulting to them and me. I’ve said NO and their reaction has been nothing. If I ask for a rain check I have to wait for a manager and grilled aboutthe item, you would think I was asking for the keys to the safe!

I have been trying to get through the store a number of times by using one of the electric grocery carts. 75% of the time there isn’t enough juice in them to get past the frozen foods department, let alone get to the milk department at the back of the store. Sometimes I’ve had to call the store when the cart dies on me while shopping to ask that another be brought to me so I may proceed with my shopping. The times that I’ve voiced my complaints have fallen on deaf ears ( please, no offense to those who are truly deaf). One manager said that Meijer does not make enough money to provide working electric carts. Another person working the service desk said she would pass on my information and complaint to a manager as I told her the last time I was there that I was not going to shop there any longer and take my business elsewhere. Do the complaints even get to corporate, or do you really not care? What good is it having a super store when you are not handicapped friendly? That particular day I wasted 45 minutes trying four different electric carts not to mention the few that were marked as not in working order. How pathetic. Walmart has Electric carts that work. Kroger’s has electric carts that work. Two of the local health food stores have electric carts that work. Costco has electric carts that work. What is your problem? Could it be that upper management is getting paid far too much that you really don’t care anymore?

On a side note, your M perks is a joke. They rarely all work at check stand. The stores don’t carry the items you advertise. I’m exhausted that it has taken me more than an hour and a half’s time looking for all the items that you are placing in your ads that are nowhere in the store. I guess you’re just using those ads to coy us into coming into your store and hopes that we spend our money buying other crud. Well Yep, I’ll be buying other things, but it will be at all of your competitors markets.

Betty December 11, 2015 at 2:39 pm

So sorry this happened to you – you really went the mile and really tried to save money.
Having done this myself I can relate. What helped me was to try to get up earlier
(yes, even if this means going to sleep earlier or at least relaxing in bed earlier till
drowsy), and get to the stores earlier when the juice is charged up and ready to go
for the day and be among the first to get one! “The early bird gets the worm”.

Hope this will help you some. Sale items (I’m sure you know this too) run out some
times before the hard-working clerks can accept more deliveries or restock even tho some work late eves and early ams. I try to beat the rush by going first or second
day of sale, if I cannot find something, I ask when I get to the check out and they
send someone to get it for me or the clerk does if there is no line or she pages someone to help. I’ve only tried Meijers once, walking, but had a most pleasant
experience and really fresh looking food, and so many varieties to choose from.
I tend to go to smaller stores for quicker shopping trips for basics but specialty
stores when I want “extras” to brighten up our life.

Meijer at 26 Mile in Lenox Twp – the manager at this store should be fired. There were 14 people in line at the deli counter this morning – FOURTEEN. And one poor person – who is there every week on Sunday who does nothing but apologize to the folks waiting.

I’ve personally spoken to the manager there twice – and the answer I get is “it’s hard to find good deli help”. How about the other 10 employees that are walking around the meat counter or stocking produce? Or how about you Mr. Manager jumping in a situation like that? However, they are never around….NEVER.

This happens EVERY SINGLE WEEK – I’m there every Sunday in the morning to grocert shop, it isn’t alwasy 14 but at a minimum at least 3.

Something needs to be done, it’s not only me complaining – I heard 3 other shoppers waiting around me wondering what the heck is going on here – and again, every time they are there.

I will take my business elsewhere, and I don’t mean another Meijer store, I mean your competitor. I’ve been putting up with this for almost 2 years now. It’s frustrating, and today I reached me limit.

You should be ashamed of the way this is being managed.

Wow, after reading the above complaints, guess mine is rather mild. I drive approximately 15 miles to the Petoskey store and only go once a week. Lately EVERY week there are plenty of items not in stock. A couple weeks ago I had 5 items on my grocery list that were not available. The milk was not stocked on Friday morning at 10am; only whole milk, all other not stocked. This week the 99 cent chicken for whole chicken or split chicken breast were not available. They were cleaning the cooling section; I asked why not clean it at night and was told; there is no one to do it at night. Really, 10am on Monday and no chicken available. When I complained to a manager, I told him I was pissed as I am sick and tired of not having items available; his smart as reply was; don’t get pissed; get rain checks. I am not driving there again to get things that should be on the shelf the first time. Meijer has no concern for their customers and none for their employees; you can tell from the actions and statements of employees they are not treated good. How can a business keep going when there is no concern for employees or customers as they are what keeps a business going. SHAME ON YOU MEIJER; how would the original Meijer CEO feel if he knew how his business is being run; pretty crappy I would bet.

Times are getting more difficult. I don’t know if this is rural, or urban setting
for your boy’s bus stop. When we were young, we just went home and into
our house. Mom was home within half an hour from her work in a factory.
I have heard of others asking a neighbor to take in their child for after
school, but again, this may not be possible in your situation. I know you
don’t want to change jobs or work part time to get less pay, hmmm, so I
will pray for a solution for you. Putting myself in an employers position,
can I help find him someone willing to come in when I need to leave, and
if this is done for me, can everyone else come and go as they please too?
Usually companies have set times for jobs, first, second and third shift. Being
flexible is few and far between especially where there are many employees.
On the other hand, It’s a Wonderful Life, and we should all strive to make it
so not only for ourselves, but for others – if others complain, explain there is
the safety of a child involved in this person’s exception to the rule. If all the
others have children, or sick mother, or whatever (older dog needing depends),
customers don’t care who is at the check-out as long as they are pleasant,
focussed on getting us checked out and not talking to each other a lot like it
is break time when you are possibly running late for having to compare so
many in-house bargains! If the store cannot find more workers, could the
child be dropped off somewhere else? (friend, your job, etc) as this may be
a busier time for customers shopping after school pick-ups.

Today’a experience was the worst I’ve had at the Roseville, MI location. I’ve had other rude cashiers before, but this one topped the cake. The self-checkout computer screen needed service so we informed the cashier in charge. She replied rudely, w/out even making eye contact, “I already know that.” I then asked why the cashiers here are so rude and she said she wasn’t rude. I disagreed, saying she was. She then proceeded to tell me she had been up since 6:30am and was tired. I asked for her name b/c continued to argue w/ me. She mumbled her name and I said I couldn’t hear her. She did not reply. She had set her name badge on the scanner, so I picked it up to see her name. She snatched it out of my hand so hard, she actually hurt my thumb. It was at this point that I began yelling at her to get a manager “NOW” & saying i cannot believe “you just did that to me.” Her response: “Don’t touch my belongings.” She walks away and the cashier working with her stares at me and appears to get on the phone. Still, neither one said they were getting a manager. I go to ring my items up & the screen issue became a new one. So, I’m waiting and waiting until the person I was with goes up to the same cashier and told her there was still a problem. The cashier again rudely said she’s coming back-yet still stood there. The cashier comes back and I decided it was just best to have the service desk ring up the items b/c there were already a ton of people behind me and the scene made was extremely embarrassing.

The manager I spoke to was near the service desk (a greeter called her over for me) & was on her store phone and completed that call before talking to me. I assume she was possibly speaking with the cashier. Although she took my statement, apologized and said she would talk to her right now, I’m not sure I was taken completely serious. The person I was w/ noticed she seemed irritated, although polite to me.

Because of the degree of the incident, I will not be coming back. That cashier probably will not see any severe punishment for becoming physically aggressive with me. Fifty years ago, she would have lost her job immediately. But it’s quite clear that she doesn’t mind treating the ones, who essentially ensure she has a job (the customers) w/ respect & certainly not behaving the way she did in front of 50 others & expect that the customer she treated poorly, to take her abuse.

I was a dedicated Meier Shopper for over 20 years, buying 99% of all my groceries at your stores until last year. I now purchase 75% of all my groceries elsewhere. There was a time when customer service was of the utmost importance but, no longer is that the case. It’s very frustrating spending an hour shopping only to find that, when it’s time to check out you can expect another hour wait. I use self-checkout as it seems to be quicker however, in reality it’s not. Anywhere from 6-10 people all trying to check out at same time and only 1 cashier to assist (a complete nightmare).
It doesn’t matter which Meijer store I shop, I have 4 within very close proximity and at there all the same, no help and no customer service. The other major downfall with all your stores is that all your perishable products are near expiration or past expiration or out of stock. Another peeve, bottle machines rarely work or are always full and nobody ever around to fix them.
Corporate only seems to care about their bottom line and not their customers or employees, all that matters is the almighty dollar. God forbid (if I offended anyone for use of this word, too bad) I should happen to have a question I’d better be sure to ask an employee that’s not on break or lunch. For even if they wanted to help me, they can’t because they’ll get in trouble for punching in or out late. You treat your employees like dirt and your customers like the dust laying on the dirt. Meijer needs to get back to the basics and give their customer’s the service they deserve. Employees need to be treated with respect and in return they will be more prideful in their work. I worked in the grocery business for over 20 years and truly believe customers and employee relations need to be your top priority, then everything else will fall into place. Coupons and rewards won’t cut it.

Well said and that said. Take a break a moment and breathe. First of all, Yes
the clerk, while undoubtedly busy checking someone else out and trying to
concentrate despite interruptions, did snap back quickly to keep going with
her work. Fast work puts people in that mindset, or quick minded work like
accounting, politics (more tact needed here). Perhaps a more polite reply that
cashiers can be gently trained and reminded of quarterly would be, “I’ll get a
sign put on that as soon as I finish with this customer” I’m sorry the machine
took a break (for laughs). Saying the clerk was rude, because she snapped
back or answered you quickly to acknowledge your information – and yes, she
should have done something about that already including stopping to put the
sign up – stores, give clerks some paper to do that and tape please) puts her
not in a win-win situation because she is always told to keep checking people
out as anyone in a line becomes impatient. A self-help machine means you
now have to move to another, or get in another already crowded regular line
which you were trying to avoid to begin with. Shop when you are not in a hurry
even if it means 11 pm when less crowded – I’ve done it. If a clerk snaps back
or so it seems, please put yourself in her shoes and give her some breathing
space – maybe she could call customer service to handle this request and the
clerk could allow you to be her next customer or the customer service rep could
“place you at the front of a line” for your inconvenience while smiling at the
persons behind you begging their forgiveness to understand your position.
The world, as a whole, is becoming selfish driven by their rushed need for
time and money. If each one of us tries to walk and talk more softly a lot of
this could be avoided. Try to create “Good Ripples” for each other not bad
insulting comments to stir up fights whether rightful or not – what is a grocery
store – it used to be a place to catch a short visit from a neighbor – yes REALLY.
And before that, people actually invited neighbors who “dropped by uninvited”
into their kitchen for coffee and cake – one always had some ready, then
visiting on a Sunday became acceptable, then calling first, then apptmts – what
robots we are becoming – so unsocial.

I am AGAIN a very unhappy customer! And once AGAIN I am turning to your Facebook page because the store nor the customer care number has resolved my issue. I am an avid couponer at your store as well as several others in my area, who spends THOUSANDS of dollars at your store a year as well as makes you THOUSANDS of dollars a year with my coupons as you mark down my coupons to the price of the product, and then redeem that coupon for face value + $.08!!! I know all my store policies well, and never walk into the store expecting anything more or less. Back in March I was having issues with my Meijer store accepting competitor store coupons, so I took to this facebook page as well as the contact us link on the Meijer.com website. I received and PRINTED both responses to my question to have them with me while shopping… DOES MEIJER ACCEPT COMEPTITOR STORE COUPONS? Both of my responses back in March were the same “Yes” and specifically started Target Web Coupons were accepted and could be stacked with one Manufacturer Coupon PER ITEM… I have used and had absolutely no problems using these and stacking these coupons, even using them last week, up until today when I was rejected stating corporate gave them the no go! So I have reviewed your policy, which has not changed, and also spoke to a customer care person (Reference Number 150804-000308) who stated you do not accept any web coupons, which states NO WHERE in your policy that… even told me coupons from Coupons.com were no longer accepted, which states NO WHERE in your policy! So why am I now getting conflicting answers for this area of your policy! I asked to speak to someone higher up about this and was refused that privilege. Nothing has changed in your policy… so Why do I have letters/messages from your corporate office stating Target Web Coupons are to be accepted and all of a sudden they are being denied?
Thanks, a very confused and angry customer!

Let me explain the full roll of Greeter to you.

Do you know shoplifting costs retailers billions of dollars a year? Which get passed along to the consumer?

Greeters help prevent that. Same with associates who say hello or acknowledge a person.

Ever hear that door buzzer go off and see a Greeter ask to see the persons receipt? They are checking to make sure someone isn’t leaving without paying for an item. They know they can’t pursue, but they can make sure Loss Prevention/Security knows of the issue and they can then know when to review the cameras if someone doesn’t want to show their receipt, let their bags be compared with their receipts, etc. They can also give LP a general idea of what the thief looks like, was wearing.

I have contacted the local Meijer in Grand Ledge and the corporate office nothing HAS BEEN DONE. Today Saturday, Aug 1, 2015 this store had NO 1/2 gallons of milk left. I even asked the person behind the dairy case that was stocking if they had any and said he would look only to come back and say no. I don’t know who this grocery manager is related to or who he knows, BUT he is the worse manager I have ever seen in my 50+ years of grocery shopping. First no corn beef around St. Pat days, then no dairy creme for coffee, then out of Lipton tea, on and on. After 2 years they are still blaming it on a previous grocery store closing in Grand Ledge and they haven’t caught up in what the demand is. REALLY??? I worked close to 43 years, if I had performed this poorly I would NOT of stayed employed. Isn’t this a right to work state?

I tell my daughter all the time to not use meijer for her grocery shopping, do to my past disappointing results in food quality and service. Well, she went anyway, to the store in Columbus Ohio. It is located on North Cleveland Avenue. It is approximately one mile from her house, so she had to send her husband there to get chicken. After her husband came home with the chicken presented it to her, showing her that the date on it was not expired, she opens it and it reeks of old meat.
I asked her if she would please return the meet with the receipt, but it was late at night and she didn’t want to deal with it.
I told her once again to never go to that Meijer. Go the extra mile and a half down the road to Kroger. It’s a shame, but this store on Cleveland Avenue in Columbus Ohio is horrible.

I applied for a pharmacy job at Meijer. After my interviews, I did a follow-up phone call a week or so later. I was happy to hear that I got the job and asked my team leader if I would be given on the job training (I was already entitled to it thanks to State/Federal Law and company policy, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask). They said “yes”. I didn’t realize it then, but that was the biggest lie I was ever told in my entire life. Whenever I asked for help with an assignment, they would do it for me without walking me through it (how does this qualify as on the job training?), refused to train me “How do I print out the label?”, “No, you’re not ready to do that yet.” (Seriously? There aren’t any customers or phone calls, this would be a good time to be teach me.) or they flat out trained me incorrectly, when I was ringing up a customer at the cash register, I looked at the paperwork and it said the prescription cost 1 cent, a co-worker came to me and told me the customer gets this prescription for free and said to scan a barcode that said “Free Metformin”. Fair enough, but later, I looked at another paper that said “Vibramycin” and the price was also 1 cent. The same co-worker came back and told me “Metformin” free, remember?” I responded “That wasn’t Metformin, that was Vibramycin”. Turns out if the paper said “1 cent”, I had to scan the “Free Metformin” barcode regardless of the presscription’s name, however, this was the kind of thing my co-worker should’ve told me about earlier. The absolute worse they did in regards to my training was throw me into assignments I had no idea how to handle like helping out a customer who didn’t speak English. If they don’t speak English and I don’t speak their language, how am I supposed to help them? Or scan mail ordered prescriptions into the computer system when they were flat out aware I’ve never done this before. As for my responsibilities (or lack thereof) outside of counting tablets and capsules (the word “pills” is inaccurate) or working the cash register, I spent most of my time taking garbage into the backroom, bringing supplies from the backroom to the pharmacy, or taking stickers and putting them on the paper bags. Going between the pharmacy and backroom could’ve been fulfilled by any store employee and putting stickers on the bags could’ve been done by a kindergartner.

A month or so later around Christmas last year, I was given a 2 weeks notice and told I had to show some improvements or else my employment would be terminated. While I did show some improvements, less than 1 week later, my team leader decided to kick me out on account that I was struggling with the computer software even though for reasons stated above (non-existent/incompetent training and lack of responsibilities), I didn’t have much time to work with the computers.

After this, they decided to kick me while I was already down and marked me as “not eligible for rehire” even though my work performance was directly caused by their incompetent management style.

If you work at Meijer, you WILL regret it.

The constant waking up from the delivery trucks ( especially refrigeration ones) causes one to sell their house!!! We purposely bought a townhome in a very quiet neighborhood only to be woken up by loud, annoying refrigeration trucks running constantly (all day and night)!! The only thing that stops the noise is a burr and some trees that Meijer had built. Our backyard backs up to Meijer; they need to build a cement wall with sound barriers! I’ve complained to too many managers at Meijer’s who tell me different stories, and none who have helped the situation! My next step is to go to corporate!!!

I’ve now spent more than half an hour trying to contact someone, anyone, at my local Meijer. I have one simple question. Instead of a person trying to actually help, I got one automated response after another, all featuring loud, tinny, obnoxious music in the hold pattern. I got mad enough to call the corporate offices and guess what? Same thing! My tight schedule today has now been completely disorganized.

I want to comment on one of your products. I really like the flavored water under your brand. I used to buy “ICE”, but if found it very sweet. I have recently been told I have type 2 diabetes so I can no longer drink soft drinks. I was never a diet drink person so I have been drinking only water. I was thrilled, after trying a number of diet drinks, to fine your brand. Thanks for having a variety of flavors. I especially like the Pink Grapefruit.
Sincerely
Libbie

I purchased a $100 Macy’s gift card at the Auburn Hills Meijer store on Mothers Day 2015 for my mother in law along with over $150 worth of groceries. When my mother in law went to use the card at Macy’s, she was told it had a $0 balance. I took the gift card back to Meijer three times before they would check their system to see if the card was ever activated. Julie, the 2nd manager I spoke with who refused to help me, assured me that it was impossible for an error of this nature to occur so Macy’s or I must have made a mistake. Finally, on my third visit to the customer service desk to get help, Doug, a more helpful manager had my transaction looked up and he verified that the card was never activated despite Meijer charging me $100 and Julie’s insistent that this error was not possible (clearly it was). This ordeal caused great embarrassment for my mother in law, me as well as my husband; not to mention 1 1/2 hours of my time. To add insult to injury, I received a $2.50 voucher for my next visit and a reminder not to let their error ruin my evening. With this bit of sage advise and after 25 years of loyalty to Meijer’s, I’m taking my business elsewhere.

I worked for the Meijers in Algonquin, IL for several months. There are a few quality people, but most of the employees are mean-spirited and petty (to customers and other employees). Other issues that should really be addressed: 1.) The temperatures over the cash registers can regularly go above 80, even if it’s winter time. 2.) Add to the excessive heat while forced to repeatedly lift heavy items, the cashiers are forbidden from taking a sip of water. Every other employee in the store has a chance to drink water. I asked the CS person, the team leader, the shift leader and department head why it was arbitrarily hot up front, and they all either shrugged or said that the temperatures were controlled by the corporate office. They didn’t even care that it was an OSHA violation. 3.)They hire you as part time, then schedule you 35 and more hours a week. When I asked if I would qualify for health benefits, Justin told me that they would make sure to drop my hours so I wouldn’t qualify for them. Nice…. 4.) After staying late and filling in for several call-offs, I asked if those counteracted any of the points from calling in sick yourself. Justin said, “No.” I replied that it seemed only fair, he responded that I should feel lucky to be given the chance to earn extra money. Using that logic, he should have been grateful when people called in sick as it saves on his labor cost. 5.) No one ever told me that you should use a suspend transaction when the CS rep has to check a price or go look for something. Nor was I told that they averaged the number of items you rang from beginning to end of sale. It probably looked like I rang 1 item every 45 seconds! Ha! I had many people not only compliment me and tell the team leader, but they wrote nice letters and gave excellent shop reports. I used to love shopping there, but I just don’t want to give money to a company that treats its employees so callously.

I was in your Southgate mi store on 5/12 . I was checking out at self check out and was ringing up my products when the handle on the bag broke. The cashier came over due the fact that the machine now required an over ride to continue due to I moved the bag because of the issue. She was very rude and searched through my bags as though I was steeling. I continued on and again another bag broke and the cashier came again and complained that I was moving the bags causing the machine to need her assistants. At this point I had enough and left everything at the register and walked out. It’s very sad u have to deal with an employee who is annoyed by having to do their job. Won’t be shopping at that store again. This was at 1:30 am. Not like there is a line at the register and I was causing a back up I was the only one there.

This is a customer service complaint. I could not get anyone at the store in customer service to answer my call. I was on hold 3 times for 15 minutes or more. This problem has happened several times, we get our order processed by your cashier and they put one thing in a bag and it gets left at the store. Your cashiers do not hand the last bag to the customer which should be in your training policy. I go to the Petoskey store, but I won’t be going there for a long time. We live 35 miles from your store so going back is not an option. Saving money is why I go there, but I can go to Wall Mart across the street and get better customer service, My husband already filled out a complaint on sec.#

Meijer has recently made a decision to replace their dry roasted peanuts and sunflower seeds with a different product. After waiting for at least 3 weeks without anything on the shelf, they were replaced with an inferior products. The peanuts taste nasty and feel like they are regular roasted peanuts pretending to be dry roasted. They lack the crunch and flavor of the previous selection. My whole family has low blood sugar and depend on the peanuts to supply a source of protein throughout the day. I personally bought 3-5 jars per week. They were the best tasting peanuts that I could find (including the competitor brands). The sunflower seeds taste rancid in comparison to the dry roast. Please reconsider going back to the previous line or carry both for choices for the customers. As it is I WILL NOT purchase the current product! Thank you for your consideration.

I am diabetic and was In serious need of insulin syringes. Walmart is usually where I get my insulin syringes but their pharmacy had closed early due to a holiday. I went in to Meijer at 26mile Rd and Van Dyke in Washington Twp. I asked for syringes and the women asked me if I filled my insulin prescription with them. I told them I filled it at Walmart but they were closed. She said she couldn’t give me syringes because it was against Meijer policy. I can’t find this “policy” anywhere online and I’d also like to know with Meijer syringes being $20 more than Walmart, why would it be against Meijer policy to help people…

I worked for Meijer for almost 6 years, I loved my job. I voluntarily left to start a job that I have been lucky enough to receive my degree in. at the time that I left I was working TWO full time jobs while attending college and raising a child. When I quit I gave more than a months notice so that my team leader could hire someone to replace me, which she did not do. I have recently fallen on hard times and inquired with my former team leader about possibly getting rehired only to be told that I am not able to be rehired? and to top things off it is February 7th and I STILL have not received my W2! Last I knew those had to be sent out by January 31st yet when I inquired with payroll about that they said that they were not getting mailed until the 2nd of February! My W2’s have been emailed to me for the last 6 years, I feel that that should have been an option for me still!

I was recently fired from the Maxtown rd. Meijer in Westerville OH. the wonderful reason…. my dad died. I hadn’t been there past my 90 days yet. mind you I was just shy of getting to the 90 day mark when this happened. Meijer made me feel like I had to make the choice to be at the hospital with my family to say goodbye to my dad who passed away 3 days after Christmas or leave and to be at work and have that on my conscience my whole life. if it where any of your family members what would be your choice I ask you? they pointed me for being at the hospital that night rather than working, I was scheduled off the next 3 days, the following day I had to work I missed and it was put in as a no call no show- I did not make it due to grief and trying to make funeral arrangements. as a result this pushed my point number above the allotted amount. when I spoke to my boss about trying to have them removed due to what had happened he said even if they took them off he felt I would lose my job in a month anyway so was there a point? at this point I felt I didn’t want to try and save a job that didn’t want me. they had already fired me and taken me off the next weeks schedule. how is that right that they feel they can tell you “sorry you haven’t been here 90 days we wont give you grievance days paid or not”. even if your only 8 days away from your 90 days. I was so mad and hurt. I truly liked the co workers I worked side my side with. But since having been treated like that by the management over the death of my father I have not returned to Meijer as a customer or to see anyone. I doubt if I ever will. and to top it off they are taking their sweet time mailing their former employees W2’s out.

I grew up in Kalamazoo Michigan and my first job was at Meijer Thrifty Acres as a cashier on senior year of high school. Meijer provided a perfect first job situation. It was family oriented and trained their employees well. I partially credit my success in the business world to that beginning. I now live in Virginia and return to Michigan to stay on one of the lakes and visit family and friends a couple times a year. Visiting a Meijer store is a part of nostalgia. However, it won’t be included in my future plans.
Last June I spent a week vacationing with friends and stopped near Battle Creek to get gas at one of your stations. I used my Meijer card (it has to be used to remain active). I paid the card in full once the statement was receives, as I always do. In September I received a statement showing a balance of $88.01. I called your customer service and spoke with a representative who was courtesy and helpful. She assisted me in filing a fraud claim because the purchases were made while I was in Virginia. It was a little dismaying and I suspected one of your own employees had to have been involved since these were gas purchases. I later received a new card and a letter explaining the matter had been corrected, determined to be fraud and I was not liable for those charges.
Imagine my distain when I got my first and only collection call last night at 9pm from Community Bank.
I have never received any statements since the letter saying the matter had been corrected. I did receive new Meijer cards but had not planned to use them since they were no longer your in house card. I am not even sure if you can legally issue such a card without my permission, but that point is mute.
I explained to the collection clerk about the fraud situation and was told I would have to contact the fraud bureau. Perhaps some training needs to be completed at the company that you now have representing your brand.
I contacted Meijer customer service and received about the same quality service as I had from Community Bank’s collection company. I was transferred to Community Bank’s fraud division and that representative was able to read their screen and see where the process failed and I owed nothing and should not have been bothered, and upset with the harassment of a credit collection call.
You may think this is not your problem, that it was not your company because you sold those accounts. My Meijer’s name is still on the card. And I hope others will do as I did and cut up their cards, make the decision that nostalgia is not worth dealing with the incompetence and not shop in a Meijer store again.
I am fairly certain a collection call is not warrantied even if there was a delinquent account without some prior notification in the form of a statement or bill. And I am more than offended to have received such a call when it was mishandling of my card that credited the original situation and negligence in not clearing it as promised.

I JUST RETURNED from your store. My shopping experience was not a good one. I had prepared the day before by going to M perks and clicking on coupons and special savings. I printed my list and headed to the store. I couldn’t find the pj sets that were on sale for men and women. When I went to the register the cashier asked me if I had loaded my m perks info because nothing came up. I said I had. He told me that there was a 5% off special running today and I needed the entry to get it. It wasn’t on the phone the day before. Now here’s the problem : it’s my husband’s phone and he was at work. I was also not happy I had to go log into the site again to get the savings. I went to customer service with my receipt and my shopping list but they could do nothing. All of this is very frustrating to me. I think you as a corporation are leaving out the older population from your offers. Because I’m not savvy and don’t have my own site I can’t get your offers without much trouble. My step mother (80) on limited income can’t get your offers. Next time I’ll hand the phone to the clerk and have them check the site for me. Always shop with someone up to date or loose out. What are your customer service people for if they can’t fix your problem?Another complaint is being handed register generated coupons for items I just purchased with a short due date. What kind of offer is that? I wouldn’t be needing those items for a month in most cases. I also hate being. handed a coupon for something I just bought for next time- 10.00 off your next foot ware purchase when you just purchased shoes for example. I call those psuedo coupons or giving you something you’ll never really use. I would be happy to have been able to use it on the shoes I did buy. Give me real offers not these useless things.

On Thanksgiving day I tried to pay the Meijer bill online (like I’ve done in the past) and went round and round and was not able to access the web site to pay the bill. After a call to MasterCard I found out the card I had was no good any more and a new bank was handling the credit card. After a long time on the phone I was added to my wife’s account so I could talk to someone. After a long time I finally was able to get into the new web site and pay the bill. I still have no credit card and my mperks don’t work. I was told it takes 2 weeks to get a new card. I guess you don’t want me to use it that much. I have called your crappy call call centers several times and have still no resolved the situation to my satisfaction. It is almost a week later. you hide like cowards behind call centers. Hang up on me. Give me incorrect information. I ask for a supervisor I get cut off. DO YOU REALLY WANT ME TO USE YOUR CREDIT CARD!!! All you have to say Meijer doesn’t not care if people use their credit card. If this is the customer service you provide I will probably not do business with Meijer.

Thursday November 27, 2014 I went into the Meijer store in Wixom, Michigan to purchase a DVD ,the wizard of oz. I walked up to the counter in electronics. Behind the counter there was a female and a male. Both of them pretended not to see me. The male walked off. I could tell by her actions that she wished I would go away so that she would not have to assist me. Finally after 10 minutes she acts like she wants to assist me-until another customer walked up, she looked relieved . I was there first but she stopped assisting me- and told me that she was going to assist her and will be back later to assist me. I am not prejudice, but she showed that she was. I am African American , and she was Caucasian. I had other DVDs to purchase. But after that treatment, I put them down and left the store . I feel that my money is just as good as the next person. It is a shame that people are still so prejudice. When working in the public there will be all kinds of races, and if you can’ deal with it – it’s best to find another job where you do not have to deal with other races. I will not shop where I am not wanted.

Meijer is not a family run place anymore all they care about is making money and dont care who they run over that includes the disabled. If you want to keep employees you need to pay them a fair wage and treat them with respect. They bring you this money to you every day you owe them big time.dont take advantage of the little guys Michigan Corp. Or one day you might find no one. … and ultimately be ran of Kentucky by Kroger, Costco, Walmart and Target and i will personally see to this if things dont get better for all team members at Meijer.

Hello, Hank. I work at meijer and ever since I started, it has been getting progressively worse. The management especially. All they care about is cutting hours so they can get that bonus check at the end of the year. I am trying to go to school and live. Also, meijer says they are a “family company”. if so, why have I been forced to work on one of the most important family days of all? I have not been able to see my family on Thanksgiving for 4 years now because of it.

One of the main reasons I quit working there. the have a “union” yet after working there almost 6 years I was still receiving less hours than new hires? the manager in my department was more concerned with making friends and talking about her coworkers behind our backs than doing her job. all she did was sit in the office and eat, sleep, and pretend to work.

They have a lot of espoused values, but they do not actually practice those. It is in every corner of the company that leadership looks the other way. It is all ‘lip service’ I am sorry to say. The best thing they have are the hourly team members, these folks are good people and will make you feel like family, but corporate will not support them or give them a decent wage. It is a shame when the Meijer brothers are now listed as two of most richest men in the USA…how do you like that? You are working for peanuts to make them rich.

This name and the name on my schedule at Meijer store 169 are different. There is a reason for that, but it’s not a good one. Perhaps you would like to ask my store’s RAA. I got married back in March and gave her my new driver’s license and marriage certificate. I was told I needed a new SS card as well. I ordered it and received it in April. I came in on my day off to give it to her. I waited, and waited, and waited. My name didn’t change. I went and asked her why and was told she never got my SS card. Uh huh, ok, fine. I brought it in again and was told she’d get to it but she was very busy. It’s now Halloween. She’s so busy that she leaves at least 15 minutes early every day, and I went in once for a different matter about half an hour before she was to leave, just to see her sharing pictures with a manager that she’s very close friends with. I got the dirtiest look for being there. I’m not the only one that has problems with her. If you’re below management level, you’re below getting any help from her, apparently.

He was originally hired with the understanding that he was not available to work on Sunday’s as he is very involved in his church. Recently he was forced into a compromise to start work at 1pm so he could continue attending & volunteering at his church. Meijer claims to be a family friendly company that does not discriminate against race, gender, or religious beliefs. As of last week his new manager has been referring to him as “church boy” & today told him he has no option but to start working earlier on Sunday. My friend is part-time & has a admiral work ethic. On top of this he is being scheduled 4 hour shifts yet being held 10-12 hours a day. & not being allowed to contact his family if he is gonna be late. This is taking a toll on his family & relationship with his kids. I am very disappointed in how he is being treated. He puts 110% if not more into his job, yet his only thanks is being taking advantage of & discrimated against for his personal beliefs. He needs this job to provide for his family & is afraid that if he stands up for himself he will lose his job. How is this a family friendly company?

Your pharmacy personal need to go back to school. They are not doctors. The perks program nice but not worth dealing with staff who clearly don’t understand a doctor order…. Scary.

I had transferred my meds about 3months ago from rite-aid thinking that was a good idea but boy after the three months I realized I had certainly made a big mistake.not only are the pharmacist technician quite dumb but not one time have they got it right I called two to three hours ahead of time and then go to pick them up and come to find out that they still have not even got them ready or they had not even filled everything that I had requested. so I will be transferring all 13 medications back to rite-aid as soon as next month gets here and I mean everyone of them. Now that I grocery trade there for 4 years I will be going back to Krogers for that also. The only reason for me grocery shopping at Meijer in the first place is because it is closer too my home & I was using m-perks but not any more. I will be using my Kroger rewards card instead. Plus they got better customer service there. I’m sorry to tell you that Meijer but I gave you guys a chance with me plenty of times, also I’ve even made call to corporate and still have not had any one call or do a follow up on my situation. I guess in the long run they really don’t care about the concerns that a customer has. So Meijer you have my name and my e-mail address and you know how to get in contact with me if you want to see what issues I have and why I feel the way I do.

I am sorry you had your experience .. Makes me want to boycott them…. Mine has been terrible since as well. The perks are nice but it’s almost a perk not having to deal with someone who can’t read a doctor order. It’s scary…. Meijer obviously should not have a pharmacy if they can’t do what’s expected… They never have script done…. They’re a mess.

I wanted to share my experience with Meijer this past year. I have been a loyal shopper since I was a little girl. This past year though the frozen foods section is never stocked and out of the products that I routinely buy. I spoke with the frozen food manager and he stated it was a vendor issue. It has come to the point that I will be looking elsewhere to do my grocery shopping since what I buy is not in stock. I would speak with someone from the home store about this but finding contact information for the managers is not apparently available and I have been brought to this website.

The store is the B Drive North, Battle Creek Store. The products they are out of routinely are the California BBQ chicken pizza and Digiorno. Also, the Tyson frozen chicken products. The case has sat empty for two to four weeks at a time for Tyson.

I was happy to start seeing more non GMO products in your store. Like Nature’s Path products, but they have now all disappeared. I shop at your McHenry, IL store, but find it hard to find good quality food. I am limited to a short and now even shorter list to choose from. This makes me have to go to Whole Foods more often. Are there any plans to stock more non GMO and organic products?

I am very disappointed in Meijer’s treatment of my sister Mary Pollard who worked at your Findlay, Ohio store for 17 years then was terminated under your point system primarily for absenteeism even though nearly all of the absences were due to illness or while she was in rehab for a shoulder injury. To add insult to injury the store reported to Jobs and Family Services that she was terminated “for cause'” which then prevented her from collecting any unemployment benefits after 17 years of faithful service. There is no excuse for this shoddy treatment of a faithful 17 year employee. Although we shopped regularly at the local Meijer store it’s doubtful that we will ever shop there again or recommend to our friends that they shop there. Your should be embarrassed by this shoddy treatment of such a long term employee.

She should be qualified for unemployment. Hopefully she filed. Even though Meijer may fight her on it, she has a good case and should win those benefits. Tell her not to take ‘no’ for an answer. Ohio unemployment laws are actually on her side, even though she missed work and was discharged for excessive attendance violations, it was NOT intentional and was not done wilfully to harm the employer. She must file for unemployment.

EX loyal Customer August 13, 2014 at 6:38 am

Very disappointed with Meijer. I’ve been a loyal customer for several years, I do all my shopping in different Meijers but I rather shop more at certain store, in specific shift because when they get to know you the treatment is a little better (even when barely reach customer’s expectations) I had a few complaints to file with corporate that are extremely concerning when it comes to business. Considering that I worked as a retail manager for different stores for long years, it’s very sad to see and to experience such a low quality of customer care and treatment. I blog everyday to review items, stores overall, and how customer friendly stores are, a considerably amount of potential customers follow other people’s feedback to make a decision if to buy or not from a specific store. I had recently experienced 2 very unpleasant issues that aren’t simple to forget, in fact, there has been previous lawsuits on retail for similar situations.

In another note, I found money on the floor, asked every customer around (loudly so everyone could hear) to find it’s owner, I even made some people check on their purses to make sure, but everyone said it didn’t belong to them. Because it’s money and not a property I understand that is my choice to either keep it or do another effort to find the owner. I went to customer service to notify what happened and to leave my information in case anyone comes to ask for loss of cash inside the store, I can give it to the person myself. The customer service said “I have to call the manager because if I do that, I can lose my job you have to leave what you found here”. Being honest, WAS A HUGE MISTAKE, the manager arrived with a very bad attitude, and I was treated like a CRIMINAL, they forced me to leave the money, they didn’t give me a receipt and the manager put the money in her pocket with a very bad attitude. She said that “I HAVE to leave what I found and if nobody claims it in 30 days, it will be return to me but that they wouldn’t call me, I had to ask in a month”. I found it, I asked people out loud, I stopped many people to make sure they verify if they loss their money, I went to customer service myself to notify and leave my information, WHO DOES THAT NOWADAYS?! My intentions were honest because I could never sleep thinking that someone probably starve because they loss their cash, reason why I voluntarily went to notify. Considering that it’s the person’s choice to either keep or return, this issue was managed horribly!!!

Roger, I am sorry this happened to you. If you are disabled, them teasing you harassment and a violation of the ADA probably as well. Meijer has an employee policy against harassment, you have the right to work in a safe environment, free from harassing comments and statements about your disability or speech. You should talk to your store director, if you do not get anywhere with them, go to the Meijer portal and look up the Senior VP of Human Resources or the Manager of Workers Compensation…she is a fair and caring person and will most likely guide you to the right person. You should follow the Meijer Dispute Resolution Policy (DRP) it has an open door provision that will address this for you. Good luck. You deserve to be treated with respect and dignity at all times.

I have been shopping at meijer since I was 18, before that my with my mom in the first one in Greenville, MI. Then in Grand Rapids in 1962, Then the store on Westnedge in Kalamazoo Mi, Then Battle Creek, Mi, then back to Portage, MI luckily they built on near me in Portage. But the problem is that every week I go there something else is not on the shelf. Keep cutting products. I sure hate the thought of going to the super center on Westnedge like I had to when I first moved to Portage in the 60’s. But perhaps they may still have my products. If not? The Walmart is going to build on and make that a super center, near me next year, I may not need Meijer and is closer. I am sure I am not the only one with this complaint, Or if you have a sale, you don’t have the product on the shelf or in the store. There has become some pretty bad handling of M stores it seems. You may be making $ but that is because of the cost going up of everything I am sure. If the product is not there, Do you expect people to run back? Some people come from a distance, and wouldn’t buy it if they didn’t need it.

Now they have a new schedule, that forced me to go to part time, I am a single mom with 5 kids at home. I work 2 other part time jobs. I have always worked 8:00am to 4:30 Now they say I have to work 11:30 to 8:00 at night not being home with my kids at all and having to quit my other part time jobs. The mangers say they can’t change it the store director Byron said ” if it dosen’t work out, to go some where else.” What would your dad think about this? I’m sure he would no allow this to happen and would be ashamed

The store i work in is #33 was said to be the best meijers around, Managers are pervs and don’t care to fix any issues so makes it hard to talk to them about things. Most of the people who work there are lazy or rude to each other. The point system is lame a new girl not even 3weeks and called in 2 or 3 times and took off on the job 3 times and they are okay with it. So it makes getting things done so much worse. They are in need for employees but don’t pay enough and have rude people working there so not many people want to join there team and I don’t blame them. I work hard and only get pt hours while grocery gets paid way more and new people can start full time.they say im a good asset to the store, I think they are full of it and someone needs to fix these problems.

Im an employee at store 23, and its a piece of crap to work for and I hope corporate sees this. The way we are treated is inhumane.

We are yelled at for taking our breaks by management, unless we suck up to them. God forbid you have a family member die and need to be with your family and at the services, you’ll get points. Dont you dare have to go to the ER. Your doctors note isnt worth anything, because it wasnt written the day before your shift. Point. Im not a mind reader, and I cant time travel to know that Ill be in the hospital 14 hours instead of at work. Dont faint. Point. Dont ask for water or a bathroom break unless you want to get yelled at.

Management comes out of their offices to yell that you arent working hard enough in the un- air conditioned building with no water, while they sit on their asses in coolness eating and drinking doing nothing all day. Dont ask for anyone to take back cold stuff because you actually care to reduce shrink, because managers dont give a crap.

Managers also think its ok to do illegal things like approve the return of alcohol. Severe food allergies that are sending you into anaphylactic shock? Point, sent home, and marked down that you just didnt want to be there. File a grievance? No, they will not talk with you about it.

Schedules are purposely done bad so employees are held on late calls, we are always under staffed, and protocol is only followed when corporate is coming in. Managers give you five tasks to do when you are too busy to do it, but wont lift a finger. Managers sit in their group in the break room and talk crap about everyone in the store.

The whole store is filthy, but we’re not giving any cleaning any proper tools to clean with our time to do it. We dont have any up to date equipment and nothing works properly. The managers allow customers to threaten us, treat us poorly, and dont defend us.

Nothing gets fixed in our store and we run on broken things. You call a manger and they dont pick up the phone, when you can see them and they are laughing and playing around and you need them right away, or worse, they pick up, hang up, and go right back to doing nothing. The store doesnt follow any of the policies and makes up rules that arent in the handbooks to give people points. They target workers they dont like and favor people that dont do a damn thing.

If a department has multiple managers, they are all allowed to vacation at the same time, so the department has to deal with a different manager who has no idea what in the hell they are doing or the polices for the department because its not their area.

Some of the managers dont even listen to the complaints of the customers or workers, they just smile and nod, and then after the person is done talking ask what the problem is.

I could add a million more things to this list but I think Ill leave you with that for now.

Meijer has a 100% turnover rate…they have 68,000 employees, that means each year 68,000 team members quit or are discharged and 68,000 are hired in their place. There is a reason for this….hint hint (it is not a good place to be employed) I figure soon, they will have employed about everyone in the five states they are in, and there will be no one left to work in their stores. Won’t that change how they treat their team members. Michigan has a bottle return law and you get 10 cents a can or bottle…. collect cans and be your own boss, you wont get fired and you will probably make more money than working at Meijer and be happier.

It amazes me how you people don’t care of what happens to your employees especially when you have so-called supervisor’s that tell the stock handler’s to f’n shut your mouth. Expect those employee’s to come to work when they have restrictions. The ones you have for supervisor’s have no people skills & would rather sit on their butts instead of helping to get product on shelves. I would never recommend anyone to shop at your stores again & I will never step foot in one either.

My son worked at the Loveland oh store for eleven months an was termanated for horse play Prior to the Loveland store he worked in Westerville, Ohio store for 13 years.In both stores he worked in the warehouse unloading trucks. My son has disabilities that happen at the time of birth. He had seizures up until he was six years old now he only has tremors every two to three weeks that last for about 10 seconds.

Ever sine my son started working at the Loveland store he has been bullied, spit on, and had ketchup, flour and pasta sauce thrown on him. He also had a 40 lb bag of bird seed thrown at him. His neck was twisted and grabbed many times, the co-workers made sexual harassment comments and they would go around imitating his disabilitiy. On April 25,2014 a co-worker made a video him having a tremor and showed it to different employees and maybe he even put it on social media.He was fired for doing this video and my son was fired for horse play. My intent going to the store director was to make him aware of what was going on in the warehouse so my son wouldn’t end up paralized from a broken neck and to protect the other co workers from getting hurt.. So the bottom line is if you work for meijer’s and have a problem don’t take your problem to meijer’ because you will end up losing your job.

The definition of horse play is a person with disabilies trying to protect himself against bullies

It amazes me how there are never any lanes open until someone from corporate shows up. I was in the store the other day and of course there are a lot of lanes open then I look over and notice all the corporate people. I think you guys need to show up at store 45 without notice and see what really happens around there. The store director is very rude and so are the managers that are up by the registers. I over heard a manager tell the lady that is running her butt off at the front say “sorry your going to have to deal with being backed up” and then walked away. What has happened to Meijer? ????

I was so excited about Meijer being opened in Danville Illinois until now. A very good friend was going through chemotherapy and found out it did not work, she sought treatment in Chicago. Her only son and family member Jeremy Morgenson was her only way to and from treatments. He lost his job due to absences for taking his mom to her appointments. His mother will not be with him much longer and I just can not wrap my head around a company that cares so little for an employee’s situation. I understand there are rules for reasons but there are also exceptions to rules. He will have no where to live after she is gone because he no longer has a job to support himself. Isn’t there something that can be done to help this young man? So disappointed in your management at the Danville store.

I am disappointed in some of the supervisory personnel that Meijers has when simple task of stocking shelves takes precedence over saving a life. My daughter along with another employee who works for the Meijers Store in Traverse City saved a fellow employee who went down with a heart attack on May 29th, 2014. The lady went down and my daughter started compression on her chest along with monitoring her pulse, the other employee performed the breathing technique. They did save this lady’s life. My concern is the supervisor was more concerned as to why she didn’t get all of her stocking done. She received no Thank You from him only grief. Very disappointed.

The other day I wrote to Meijer because of a complaint I had about how the mperks program works. The reason for that letter now, matters little because the reply I got back just really made me that much more annoyed. It was one of those “pre-written” letters that I’m sure someone will recognize. You know, the the one that starts out with “We appreciate your business and your opinion is important to us, etc, etc, etc” Now, #1, they picked out a couple of key words and sent the “appropriate” reply or #2, they didn’t read the whole letter (which I guess goes along with #1) or #3, they were too stupid to understand what my complaint was about or #4, they just plain didn’t give a darn because the reply didn’t touch on the main point of my complaint at all. Lordy me, how I hate getting one of those “no answer” answers. You just know they don’t really care.
Now, as long as I’m blowing off steam, remember when there was a little price sticker on every item until our Governor said that was no longer necessary and that everything would have the price clearly marked on the shelf. Now there’s a joke!! There’s been a couple of times when I’ve actually said “excuse” me feeling rather stupid, and asked another customer if they happened to see the price marked any where just in case it was in front of my face and I didn’t see it. But no, the other person couldn’t find one either.(okay, these items were not in the grocery department). And one more thing while I’m at it, sometimes when I can’t find something, I’ll ask a worker in the aisle, “Meijer employee or vendor?” and 99% of the time, it’s a vendor because you can’t find a Meijer employee anywhere around, it’s like they don’t exist. I must admit though, that the vendors are always very helpful, even when it’s not their product I’m looking for or even if it’s in another aisle.
Family Fare may be a little more expensive but it it is closer and it’s looking better all the time.

I wish to tell why we shop at Meijers. The greeters are wonderful the way they welcome us .
I am 84 and need a electric cart, they help me obtain one. We spend well over $300.00 every time we visit the store. The cashier are polite and pack the groceries so the bags are not to heavy for me to carry. Something I really appreciate, is trying to locate where I can find a product., and the clerk will stop what he or she is doing , and take me to the area where it is located. We usually need help carrying the groceries to our car. All we have to do is ask for help and a carry out person is right there to help us unload. The part I like is fill my basket(the one on the electric cart) and take a break in the cafeteria where I can enjoy a cup of coffee and a doughnut. The store we enjoy is :3900 W US 10 Ludington Michigan.(when my wife has her shopping completed we meet for coffee and check out.) Respectfully, Mr.& Mrs. Mary and Richard Lange

I really enjoy shopping at Meijer’s and spend a lot of money there. I go go online, lookup the item that I want, and check out the measurements to make sure the item will work for me, and make sure it is in Storer. However, Meijer’s has decided to redo their website, and so you cannot currently search their webset and will not be able to do so until the fall os 2014. I find this extremely disappointing, and I am surprised that they choose to handle there website issues in an extremely poor business manner. This could be compared to the way the Obama Administration handled the Healthcare website. I just cannot imagine the financial loss this must be, but it seems Meijer’s this isin’t important to Meijer’s that we are paying customers.

Mary was made aware of this & 3 other issues that we had on that visit. Upon returning the following day and speaking with Mary, it was very disappointing.She was defensive and her resolution was a $40 gift card.That is nice,however the store is 20 miles away and we had to make 2 trips.I explained to her as a customer the issue is the attitude and lack of skills that her Mgr’s have.I suggested that a retraining with dept. heads would be beneficial to the store.She wasn’t receptive.As a consumer who spent over $600 at Meijer’s I do not want to also spend hour’s of my time and gas to be aggravated with the store.We will no longer shop at any Meijer stores.I can only hope that after I made an official complaint with corp. they will address and remove employees as warranted.

I just read the comment left by Mindi from March 18th, 2014. Like her I have been shopping at Meijer for as long as I can remember. My mother use to take five children shopping at the original Meijer store in Standale (back in the 60’s) and she would spend over $100 and fill up three carts with groceries. Unlike Mindi I will not stop shopping at Meijer just because of one bad incident. One Meijer associate who was having a bad day should not be the reason that anyone would stop at Meijer. If she took the time to explain the situation to a store manager (perhaps the next day) I am confident he/she would have taken care of this customer. In closing if the money was so tight how could she afford to have a cell phone to call from the parking lot? How much additional money would this customer have in her budget if she didn’t feel the need to have a cell phone just to live beyond her means and how did her parents/grandparents ever live without having said phone?

I have shopped Meijer stores for as long as I can remember and I have never been treated this badly as I was treated tonight. I am very disappointed and upset with the customer service I received when I went to return two cards so that I could put gas in my car to get to work this week. Instead of friendly service, I was treated by a woman who was very rude, kept interrupting me, with a short fuse and even worse attitude. Instead of helping me, she was impatient and confrontational. I called the store manager from the parking lot and was assured that the situation would be taken care of if I went back in. It wasn’t and so now I have to wait for two to three days for $9.52 to be put back into my bank account. There is a possibility of losing my job because of this. And I used my bank card. But since I had to use it like a credit card (because using the card as a debit I get charged a service fee), I couldn’t get cash back. Really? Over $9.52?! That is the most absolutely absurd thing I have ever heard of in my life. I hardly ever return anything, but this is ridiculous. Meijer needs to change their policy on this. I work hard and I am an honest person. No one should ever be treated this way. I have half a mind to tell everyone and anyone to not shop at the Meijer on Plainfield because of their rude customer service.

Its not a meijer policy idiot. Its a policy put in place by the card companies . Meijer is unable to override them. When u run a card as credit whether its a debit card or not , you are basically saying you are borrowing money. That’s what credit is. You could have taken a in store credit and got gas. You’re just being stupid and annoying.

I wanted to inform you of how happy I am with this store. Tonight we went into the store to purchase groceries and supplies for our new office. During our visit, we were blown away by the great service we received. We asked for assistance in purchasing 2 desks and 3 bookshelves. We were immediately assisted by a gentleman (whom I am regretful that we do not remember his name but was working in furniture/housewares around 8pm-although it may be John or Paul because when I called to get who was working, those were the two people that were working) who helped us load the items, waited for us while we got a credit approval, checked out and he loaded our car. He was extremely friendly, helpful and engaging. The cashier (who was on the lane with 12 items or fewer at the grocery end of the store at approximately 8:30pm) was also extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. Her name was Brittany. We just wanted you to know that you have a clean, efficient, friendly store and hope these employees get recognition for their superior work! We will continue to be loyal Meijer shoppers. (And Sandy is a great bonus for our 1 and 2 year old)! Thank you Meijer for a great shopping experience!

This morning (Wednesday, March 5, 2014) I shopped at the Meijer store on East 96th Street in Fishers, Indiana. I want to compliment and thank the most gracious cashier I’ve ever encountered. Her name is Joanne and her terminal number is 18.

When she asked if I had found everything I needed, I confessed that there were a couple of things I hadn’t found. She not only assured me that those items were available, but that she had tried them herself and found them to be “delicious.” She then escorted me to the exact location, where I not only found what I was looking for, but found a couple of other things I had previously missed, as well.

Because of Joanne, I doubled the amount of money I was about to spend at Meijer and reaffirmed that this store would always be my first choice for grocery and household, etc. shopping.

She was so helpful, friendly, professional and courteous that I wanted to take the opportunity to call to your attention and outstanding employee!

On Saturday March 1st around 10:30 a.m. I went to Meijer on South Hurstborne Parkway in Louisville, Kentucky to do my weekly grocery shopping. Due to an impending snowstorm expected to hit our area on Sunday afternoon, the store was very busy. After shopping in the produce section I went on the meat section where I approached the butcher counter to get the next item on my list which was Fresh Catfish Fillets. There was nothing between the butcher and I but the glass case which housed the fish and other meat. I stood at the counter for about two minutes and the butcher on the other side stared at me and never said a word. The other butchers in the store were in the work area tending to and packaging meat. The wait was uncomfortable but I didn’t say anything and the butcher across the counter never said one thing to me. After about 2 minutes another butcher came and waited on me. The man who did wait on me apologized for my wait. I said no problem and then walked on to the packaged meat selection to purchase a Beef Brisket. By this time the butcher who waited on me was restocking meat into the coolers in the outer portion of the meat department. From there the first butcher came from behind the counter and shouted very loudly. “The Mexicans are going back to Mexico. Obama has (f’d, he actually used the word) up this country so bad that the Mexicans are going back to Mexico” Everyone one who was shopping in the section made an audible gasp. Another patron yelled at him (She happened to be as I later found out is of Hispanic decent). I then ask the butcher what was wrong and he repeated the same racist comment. After I picked my mouth up off of the floor and gathered myself the other customer and myself proceeded to the customer service counter and asked to speak with Mr. John Dillon the Store Manager. We explained everything which happened to Mr. Dillon. He asked us the butchers name and we responded his name is “Brook”. The manager then told us he couldn’t tell us what would be done other than he would take care of it. I told him I appreciate whatever he was going to do but I don’t ever want to see Mr. Brook s working there again. I also told Mr. Dillon I would be reporting this incident to the Meijer Corporate Office. I don’t know what ended up happening but I did see Mr. Dillon walking towards the butcher shop and I did hear Brooks’ name being called over the loud speaker.
I have several additional comments:
a) Brooks’ co-workers never told him to stop talking that way or went in a direction to find a manager. Which leads me to believe it was common for him to talk this way.
b) Brooks’ is a danger to society when he is working with meat cutters and knives. He should not be allowed to continue to work there.
c) I live directly across the street from Meijer and I shop there at least several times a week. I find it disconcerting to think there is someone as angry and potentially violet working in a family atmosphere.
d) Prior to this experience every experience I have ever had at Meijer has been a wonderful. However, this one experience will forever be itched in my mind.
Immediate action needs to be taken.
Sincerely,
Claudette A. Berry

Dear Mr. Meijer:

I am envisioning several men, leaning back in their high back leather chairs, around an oval mahogany table, smoking cigars while brainstorming how they can make morons out of the consumer’s shopping at their Meijer stores. Through all the smoke in the air they came up with M-Perks, which is the most ridiculous program I ever saw implemented by a group of supposedly educated people. The only excuse for this program is that there was way too much smoke in the air, which undoubtedly clouded your thinking process.

Well folks, the smoke in the air got the best of you since many of us are not happy with the M-perk club. I for one DO NOT want to go on the Internet every time you text us to “Clip” the promotion that you want to lure us in with. In fact I resent it! Just for kicks and giggles I was telling my husband about that dumb a** program and challenged him to successfully try to pick up a prescription. He is about as illiterate as they get when it comes to computers. We went through the drive-thru at your Marketplace location in Rochester Hills. I sat in the passenger seat to observe the fun. They sent out the portable computer that you have to input all the data necessary to be a “Moron”-perk member picking up the prescription. He used a pen to input the data and kept messing it up. The employee suggested he use his finger. Each key hit would key in two letters at a time. I began to laugh since I could see the employee was getting impatient. The more the guy tried to help him from the window the funnier I thought it was. Finally, the employee asked me if I could PLEASE help him. I did, through laughter and was successful to the relief of the employee. I understand your date of birth for insurance purposes but the phone number, and password is asinine.

Please believe that I am not the only one who feels this way. I personally DO NOT go on the computer to “Clip” anything for Moron-perks. In fact I despise going on the computer to start with so I refuse to do it. My daughter signed me up. She knows my cell# and password so she clips what she wants and gets all the rewards for both her and I. It does however force me to input all the data necessary when I pick up a prescription, which is why I am seriously considering switching over to the Walmart Pharmacy as my prescriptions come up for renewal. Walmart’s is just as convenient as Meijers. If I need something while out, I will stop at a non-Meijer grocery store, usually Kroger where I use a simple Kroger card to get discounts.

This program is also not fair to those, mostly the elderly living only on social security, who can use these discounts, but don’t have a computer or know how to use one. On the other hand maybe you implemented this program purposely to save money on those folks. I recently commented on how I disliked your program to someone in the pharmacy and she said if I had a smart phone it would be easier on me. Politely I responded that I was happy with my “Dumb Ass” phone and I would shoot myself before getting one so I could make my M-perk life easier.

As I was looking for administrative contact information I ran across forty-one Meijer related comments. Four were positive and thirty-seven were negative. If you’re interested, you can find those comments on http://www.corporateofficehq.com/meijer-corporate-office/ The only reason for this letter is that I feel it’s unfair to take out my frustrations out on the Meijer employees, I thought it only fair to let the rocket scientists know how I feel about their M-perk concept. Let me just add that there are many who will not take the time to complain as I just have but will simply stop shopping at Meijer and go where life is less complicated. Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider discontinuing this program and issuing cards that other merchants offer for their promos. BTW, I plan to add this letter to the forty-one comments listed on the web site noted above as well.

Sincerely,
Bianka Hendren

I love this story. Fred Meijer Mantra “Customers don’t need us we need them.” Now read this story.

GAYLORD — A retired mail carrier said he’s been fired from a job as a greeter at a Meijer in northern Michigan after rushing to the parking lot to put out a vehicle fire.

David Bowers, 62, said he grabbed a fire extinguisher when a customer entered a Meijer store in Gaylord last month pleading for help.

Grand Rapids–based Meijer won’t specifically comment on the matter, but said it has policies for dealing with an emergency.

“The one supervisor told me that my heart was in the right place, but my brain wasn’t,” Bowers told TV station WPBN-WTOM.

His wife, Lynn Bowers, said the couple decided to go public after receiving a cheery Christmas card from Meijer just a few days ago.

“I was furious. We couldn’t believe it,” she told The Associated Press on Friday, referring to the card. “It was the perfect job for him. He loves to talk.”

Parking-lot fire

Ken Kuzon needed to put out a fire in the glove box of his van on Nov. 14.

Bowers said he left the store and handed a fire extinguisher to Kuzon. The flames were out in seconds.

Bowers, who was paid $9.30 an hour, returned to his post greeting shoppers.

“My truck would’ve been completely burned,” Kuzon said. “I just think it’s ridiculous. Why should you be penalized for being a good Samaritan?”

Procedure

Meijer released a statement suggesting Bowers should not have dashed to the van.

“We have well-established safety procedures for emergency situations, and we train all team members on those procedures,” Meijer said. “These procedures help ensure the safety of everyone, both customers and team members, and our team members know there are consequences when they don’t follow them.”

“He’s very bummed out,” Lynn Bowers said. “It’s a split-second decision you make. He was never told there was a procedure for a car fire.”

Greeter

Bowers had worked at Meijer for about 4 years.

He and his wife delivered mail for years in the Detroit area, before retiring from the U.S. Postal Service and moving to northern Michigan.

Bowers once got in hot water for chasing a shoplifter, but otherwise had a good record at Meijer.

“If they offered me the job back, I would go back,” he said. “I know Meijer signs the paychecks, but my thought was I always worked for the people coming in and out those doors. It was similar to being a mailman. I took care of those customers.”

DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY!!!! I ordered something for a Christmas present on the 1st of December, it is the 17th and still has not been put on a truck to be shipped to me. I have called 3 times and get the same run around. They had no problem taking the money from my account, but cannot figure out why my item has not shipped. Now I have no money to buy something else and no present…. MEIJER SUCKS!

This letter is for Corporate office. CEO: Hank Meijer, Mark Murray, CFO: Jim Walsh

I disagree with the firing of an employee for leaving his post to help a customer’s van that was on fire. I realize you may have your reasons, but if I fell in front of your store and broke a leg , I would expect some help from your store employee, not just let me lie there in fear of his/her job.
I don’t think I need to go to your store any more if you fire an employee for helping a customer. Your policies have many of the cashiers so afraid of their jobs that they can not allow the use of coupons that a person in line gives to you. You are getting a bad reputation from your customer base. We have Kroger, Target plus other mom and pop stores in our area. You wont get a like on Facebook from me!
Good Bye Meijers, Hello Kroger

There wa a man recently fired from the Gaylord meijer (my local store) from leaving his post as a greeter. He left to put out a fire in a customer van. They fire him because they said its in their policy to not leave because you need to keep the customers and employees safety in my first. Seeing as that guy who’s can caught on fire was a customer and he left to put it out to help said customer why should he be fired? Now he’s out of a job and income because he did not only the right thing but had the customer In mind.

I agree with all the above comments. I sent a silent whistle complaint about moldy, outdated, walked over (because we have no room to walk in the back room) products & I get dragged into the director’s office by the grocery manager & bombarded by both of them about it, without actually telling me that’s what it was about, leaving no time to get my thoughts together, at all. I got asked why I don’t just quit then & if I’m such a great employee why I didn’t clean up gravy on the floor (that we can never get to because the entire backroom is overfilled with food) but no mention of how they might fix some of the serious issues or listening to some suggestions of process changes from me….who has management experience and works in the trenches, seeing the poor processes that cause the disaster day in & day out. Seriously! This was a silent whistle complaint, so much for keeping it quiet and so much for an “open door policy”. Yeah right! Also, why in the heck does it go to the director and not someone above him! He’s part of the problem that needs fixing. There is absolutely no forward thinking on the part of management. No wonder everyone’s morale is so low & hardly anyone actually works. I pleaded for help in my complaint. I’m wasn’t just complaining because I thinks it’s fun nor should any employee need to sob after being demoralized by the director. Just because people have to stay at a job doesn’t mean they can be treated like SH..! I WILL be taking this much further & much faster, if I continue to get treated like crap, like I did today. There are silent whistle posters all over the place but where does it state who I contact after the silent whistle didn’t work. Maybe the health department will help or the labor board???

I have contacted Meijer several times in Normal, IL to obtain a product and left my phone number for the manager and never received a return phone call. This isn’t very good customer service. Finally I did get an answer to an email and was told the product was not available, no mention of something that might be an alternative or possibly I could order it online. Just no it isn’t available. Very disappointing and if others are treated this way, I’m sure their business profits will reflect this lack of helpfulness. Very surprising for a big store like this – I will take my business elsewhere for sure.

I used be an employee long time ago. I am hearing complaints about this holiday season of the stores being open on thanksgiving. The other was no sign of Christian ornaments or books etc. funny how they consider Fred to be a Christian and a philanthropist. One thing I do want to point out for the holidays if the corporate office and the CEOs can have the holidays off why can’t your stores and employees have those days off too? If this all about making more money or beating you competition or trying to make a good year-end sales quota for bigger tax benefits then you are still losing more customers and employees despite the remodeling you are doing in your stores makes it no better. Hank if your anything like your dad I would give up the $14 billion dollars you make a year and give every one of your employees in your stores raises excluding your management teams. Oh one last thing, get rid of your union dues as well they have done nothing to help your business.

Reading this forum so far, has saddened me even more about a store that I was employed with years ago and have now returned working for. I returned because I thought Meijer’s still ran things the way Fred Meijer had been running it. Unfortunately that is not the case. I understand where Kelly is coming from and also the other comments that are being written.

The reason I went back being an employee at Meijer, was because of what I remembered as an Ethical Company, but now is looking like this is not the case, anymore. Thinking, with them still being a private run business, they would not bow to the pressure (like Walmart and other stores) of looking at the all mighty buck being more important than their customers and employees. I realize that they have to make a profit, but how high of a profit do they need, when it impedes the treatment of not only their consumers, but employees? The pay is bad, so the revolving door is spinning, with good employees not staying for the long haul.

They have this credit card pushing scenario, that makes the customers uncomfortable (they want to shop and be helped when needed, not have something that if they wanted they have the intelligence to ask about, not shoved down their throats while shopping). They have an employee walking around doing this credit card push, which also makes the employee uncomfortable doing, with customers upset not only with being stopped and interrupted by this, but having to feel bad about themselves because during these hard economic times, they might have lost their good credit standing at some point, which this brings up a bad association link of shopping at Meijer. Then you have the employee being told they have to make a quota of how many you must sign up, because they are competing with other stores for the most applied for. OMG! Really? Where are the Christian values in that? Where are the Ethical Standards? I have quit going to stores because I don’t like pushy sales people, I can think on my own, thank you! Don’t insult my intelligence or other peoples. People don’t like telemarketers for a reason, and I see no difference in them compared to what Meijer is doing with the credit card push.

I am also finding (only been back a few weeks) that with the cutting back of their employees (to save that almighty buck) that people are not getting the services they need. With overworked employees (most departments have “1” employee) taking on more than one department and trying to keep it stocked and then trying to help customers. Upsetting customers, because they cannot find someone to help them, because the employee is running around like a “chicken with its head cut off”, going to the back and bringing out stock, stocking the shelves and trying to find things for the customer, answering questions of customers, and then being told by a line leader that they need to get things stocked and that they are getting complaints from customers that there was nobody to help them. And what is the line leader doing? Walking around, looking important and making the employees discouraged about their jobs and job performance. Maybe the line leader could help? (Just a suggestion.)

All in all, this is a sad reality, I was so hoping I was going to go back and work for a highly ethical company again, like I remembered working for in the past. Guess I will keep looking for that ultimate ethical employer, which now is looking like a pipe dream. When there are “no ethics” there are “no loyalties”.

Over the Summer months I worked at your Sandusky, Ohio store #142. When I was hired I was told what a friendly, family oriented store it was. I soon found out that was NOT the case, and from the comments from above, this isn’t the only store with this problem! The store manager and team leaders need a lesson on courtesy and treating people decent! They have meetings about how to be friendly to customers when the majority of them wouldn’t even acknowledge their employees as they pass them in the store! ( I have heard this from customers as well). Then to top it off….they like to eat in the lunch room disregarding any employee in the room…..where at one point I heard the store manager, Edna, talking about a fellow employee in a negative manner! I felt this was very unprofessional and un-called for!! If you want to help this store’s business…I suggest doing some house cleaning!! If your managers can’t treat your employees well….how do you think they will treat your customers!!

Im a team member at the midland location. Over the last several months it has become harder and harder to get our TSR Pat Dyer to come to our location in a timely fassion. After discussing this wit other taem membes here and at other locations, it has come to light that its because he spends most days at the Mt Pleasant location for lunch and every day he is there aboout 330pm.
After talking with several team members that work both locations, we now know its because he has been having an affair with a team member at Mt Pleasant. One who is married and has young children.
This feels to rest of us as preferential status.
Not only is it wrong to put us after Mt Pleasant, but for him to persue a fellow team member with a family is appauling.

Maybe Meijers should go back to making Systems the way it was years ago. Oops! So sorry, I forgot they want to make that huge profit. FYI to corporate; cutting important areas makes that profit margin smaller.

why are you building with tradesmans that have no training and contractors that are not paying area standards in wages and fringe benefit are you starting to use WALMART business plan, until you stop i will not be shopping at Meijer

OK, a Meijers is suppose to come to Manistee and that’s great because a lot of people shop in Ludington, prices are LOWER. Why, are the weekly adds not being put in the weekend newspaper? If you want to bring a store into another town, DON”T discontinue the add. If they are going down to the Detroit area, aren’t they bankrupt? You have older people here that do not have computers but like to save $$$$ on groceries and every little bit helps. OK, that’s it for now.

I’m curious to know why store 125 Illinois road has two elderly woman in electronics as full time employees. Neither of them can ever provide me with any information I need on electronics, they tell me to wait why they fetch either Sam or Nathan. Why waste my time and your customers time by having these women as the bulk of your photo/electronics area? The one woman, Kapi I believe, has mixed up our orders constantly and has provided us wrong information countless times. Every time I go in she either is just standing there or she runs and hides. It’s a shame because the other workers are so extremely helpful there. I’ve never been disappointed by either of them. It’s to the point where I only go there when one of the guys is working but I’m told they are only part time which makes it evening difficult to get help. I constantly ask them if they plan to ever be here more often and one of them tells me he wants full time but they only have full time spots for these two elderly ladies. Isn’t that counter productive for your business? Why not move these ladies to a department where they can actually assist someone? Why waste my time and other people’s time like this? You really need to reevaluate this and I plan to continue to go to corporate about this until you get actual people back there who can assist me like Sam and Nathan.

We shop at the Big Rapids, MI store and lately we have run into the problem of not enough Handicap parking and almost never any working electric carts. The worse day was we had just come back from cancer center where my husband (a retired employee) needed meds and it was pay week so needed to do a bit of shopping. He has had to put off hip surgery due to his cancer and relys on a cane and walker and I also have severe arthritis so we needed 2 carts. None were available they either were charging or in use. Ones that came back needed charging. Finally one was available (nearly 1/2 hr. wait) so I let him go get the items he needed and waited for another. I finally got one after more than a 45 min. wait and then I did not get all my things done before battery dies. This store is in an area where there are many seniors. More carts are needed. I spoke to the manager and he took note. Previously we sent in comments about it and 6 weeks later it has been same problem every time we shop. Chis the manager there was very apologetic and was not aware the problem exits. Please for the sake of the seniors that shop there get more carts. Hopefully we will not need the use of any of them by the fall.

Hi, I just wanted to say how disappointed I am that Meijer stopped doubling coupons my family and I have shopped in your store for many years and one of the reasons was the double coupons. When using the coupons I would purchase more than I planned so that I was spending more in the store than I would have because the coupons doubled. I feel by not doubling the coupons you are losing more customers and business most people will buy more if they feel that they are saving. Now I can go to any other store and spend my money because they dont double either. At these times in the economy it was a very nice feature for customers. It would be nice if you reconsidered the policy I feel that it would help your business greatly and I am not the only one that feels that way. I now go to other stores that are closer to my home because I can get the same prices and food anywhere. If possible please reconsider this coupon policy it would be a great asset to your business.

I was disappointed as well when they stopped doubling coupons, however I signed up for mperks, which is an electronic coupon program. I have saved so much more money with mperks than I have with coupons. Plus the rewards are great!! My daughter and atep daugher both wanted a Barbie Dreamhouse ($160+tax each), with only mperks, i got them for $59.35!! Score!! I receive $20 in free merchandise every month from the rewards. Please check into the mperks program. It’s worth it!

We have a Meijer platinum credit card. Through the years we have faithfully paid our balances off on that card. Last month we took that card to the holy land in Israel. Because we were going overseas, we called Meijer and have them reduce the ceiling amount we could put on the card for safety reasons. Now that we have returned to the United States, we would like to have the higher ceiling amount back on our platinum credit card so we can charge more on that card. We called the department that handles the Meijer credit card and they told us NO, we cannot put the old ceiling amount on the card. We were very faithful customers of the Meijer stores, but it seems like they want to play games and really put us between a rock and a hard place. We feel very disgruntled to the fact that Meijer refuses to put things back the way it was before we took the trip! (A higher ceiling)

I am an owner operator and deliver goods/produce all over the country.I am currently at the detroit meijer warehouse where I have been since 6am this morning. The company I have my truck leased to comes here everyday just not me as a driver. I have been talked down to—treated like a second class citizen— had my corporate office called when after 4 hours of waiting spending money of fuel to run the truck I asked why and was told because “THATS THE WAY IT IS” as though these people are gods. Basically treated like a dog SIT—-STAY—good boy. No other grocery warehouse has done this bad, and I’ve been to almost all of them. The contempt shown towards drivers is unbelievable–does not ANYONE realize that some drivers have an education–are retired from other careers (I am a retired collection agent). Well my family on avg. spends $200–250 a week in meijers stores NEVER again will that happen.

I recently terminated my employment at Meijer’s store 125 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
I worked for Meijers for 6 years, doing the best job I could considering the garbage I had to put up with in that store. I came in everyday on time, rarely took time of and was very good at my job on the pricing team. Unfortunately the disrespect and arrogance of the management of that store made the job almost unbearable. You people talk of how much you respect and value your team members but there is very little sign of that at this store.
If the moral at 125 was any lower it would have to get better first.

In 6 years I have never asked for a holiday off but when I asked for the day before and the day of memorial day off , I first had to listen to my new team leader, Roxie
Hissong complain that she never had a holiday off, that is her problem not mine.
We were told before she came that it was up to us whether we wanted to take a holiday off or work it, I always worked it when I could.

When I told our Lines Leader Steve Jordon that I had asked for these days off he became rude and told me that I was already off for the holiday but could not have the sunday before off because of setting the sunday ad. However, he had just let another member of the pricing team have 2 weekends off in a row as part of her vacation without any regard for the ad on those 2 sundays. In the past we were allowed days of according to who put in for them first but Mr Jordan is now telling me that he is going by senority, something he never said to any of us. When I reminded him of this he became arrogant and rude.

I reminded him that if he is going strickly by the book as to how we do things in this store, then I would like to know why another member of our team, Gailen Bender, is allowed to take days of during blackout days. I also asked him why ms Bender, who is a PIA is allowed to work as a APC in home? She was an IA but took the job as a PIA when she thought she was going to get her hours cut, but did not want to do the job of PIA so our team leaders before Roxie allowed her to start helping as a APC when she got her scanning done but it got to the point where she was no longer scanning and correcting at all. That is not fair to the rest of us who are expected to do our jobs. The PIA job pays more and gives that person every weekend off yet she does not do that job. The company is paying her to do a higher paying job but she goes off and does what she wants to do which pays less and is expected to work weekends. She reaps the benefits of one position but does another. The other PIA, Barb Galmeyer doesn’t do the job at all let alone correctly. She treats the position as a social event, but no one seems to care.
She has been caught several times polishing her nails in the systems office on the clock,
pays her bills on the clock and eats her breakfast every morning in the systems office on the clock. We have complained about this to management many times but no one cares.
However if I ask for a day off all Hell breaks loose.
Mr. Jordan told me that if I did not like it there that I could leave and that he would be glad to help with the process. I told him that tells me all I need to know about how much I am valued at this sorry excuse of a company. This is why moral is so low at this store. I am sure that know one at corporate cares about any of this but I just thought I would let you know what kind of store you have.
The only sure thing at Meijer has nothing to do with your so called core values, you have none except your undivided respect and greed for money. You seem to have forgotten that without the lowly teammember your arrogant lines leaders and team leaders would have nothing to do. You also need to hire store directors that actually have a brain. I am sorry if I wasted any on your precious time reading this, if you did it at all.

Have a great day, I know I will knowing I will never have to put up with Meijer store stupidity again!

Attn: Mark Murray
I am very disappointed and frankly shocked about your policy to change your rewards program from 20% off groceries to your standard (offered to anyone on MPerks) 15% off
GM and 5% off of groceries. Where is the incentive to use your credit card? It no longer exists so why should I use your card? There are many credit cards out there that offer much better incentives. I have been a very loyal customer in both your store and in using your credit card for many many years. More importantly to you is that I spend thousands of dollars in your store and charge even more dollars on your credit card. I realize that you are in business to make a profit but this decision may cause you to lose alot of customers and unless you offer something better that what you give everyone else you will be losing me too.

In response to your change from 20% to 5%. Upon receiving notice of this a month or 2 ago, I still get angry walking into the store. Going from 20% down to 5% is outrageous to put it mildly. There are more lucrative cards for sure and closer and more convenient stores. So disappointing.

My 77 yr.old mother in law Betty Creg from Fern Creek Ky. was shopping in your Hurstbourne store when 3 items were taken off the bill ( 2 cake mixes and a cooking oil ) but were not taken out of the cart because her husband already walked to the car and she was into her coupons to remember to take them out. She paid the 80 dollars and for the 7 dollars of the 3 items she was taken back in the office and yelled at and said she was a thief! Told she has to pay a $250 fine and on probation. NEVER stole a thing in her life and have spent thousands of dollars at your store since it opened. Common Sense took a back seat for 2 cake mixes and oil. She will never step foot in a Meijers again and she is afraid of the terrible 2 managers that were mean to her and she was shaking and just shut down. Shame on that store. The new cashier never said oh we have to take those 3 items out so Betty forgot also. A Innocent senior citizen. No record EVER! All major shopping her and her husband have done there since that store opened how foolish. My question is will the store take the high road and apologize to Betty Creg? Wonderful Mom, Granda & Great Grandma and a wonderful citizen. Again people Common Sense has to be used.

The charges on Betty Creg were dropped as they should have been. Betty’s daughter talked directly to Molly at corporate and Molly said that should have NEVER happened. Now I hope the company sends Betty an apology for the embarrassment that her and her husband have endured and the sleepless nights. Also the manager that did this needs to be talked to about some common sense. Thank you, Lisa Creg

This letter is for corporate but I hope the public will get to see it I was working at the Meijer store in mi 12 mile and mound road I worked with a terrible staff of managers that treat the employees like shit I was on my period and wanted to go and clean myself up and was not allowed to go and do that was told to stay at register or go home I need my job not only that but im on disability so I can only work so many hours a week they continue to schedule me at more hours than I am suppose to work …somebody please retrain these moron managers at this place but that’s not the worst part I was told by a manager … Maralyn quote if I knew you had a disability I never would have hired you …yeah that’s right she told me “quote” ..If I knew you had a disability “I never would have hired you” unquote needless to say apparently Meijers seems to have an issue or problem with disability or with people on disability .And this is not the end of this issue. If when as employees has an issue or concern and you can’t talk to your manager or assistant manager what else are we suppose to do or whoi else can we talk to… we are PEOPLE NOT ROBOTS…….
