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.

I need to know who to contact about the Pharmacy in Kokomo Ind I believe store number 15! I have been a customer with the pharmacy for over 5 years now and I’m getting so tired of having to wait 1 hour for a dang prescription especially when I have been a customer for over 5 years now and they got all new people and they are very very rude especially one whoms name is Kim Kuehl she is a very rude person they lose my scripts as well as other peoples and they do not put them in the right spot by last name you learn your alphabet in preschool so its just utterly ridiculous!!!!!!!

If you go to Meijer in midland be on the look out for MAD CASHIER she won’t let you use coupons and stands guard. We left them a full cart of groceries to put up.

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…

Why is it that you can only speak to ppl at the call center? She said she didn’t have any idea how to transfer me to anyone higher up at corporate. Amazing.


Heather February 7, 2015 at 9:37 pm

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!


Holly Jakubowski February 7, 2015 at 7:19 pm

I’m a former employee, and I’d like to know where my W2 is. It’s already going on the second week of February. This is ridiculous and is setting me back for my FAFSA and scholarship applications for school. So unless Meijer wants to pay for my tuition next year, I suggest mine shows up in the mail this week.


Shannon February 4, 2015 at 6:21 pm

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.


Ray February 3, 2015 at 11:47 am

Where is the w2s at for former employees?


Susan W February 9, 2015 at 11:49 am

When my son worked there, you had to log into your mymeijer pay account even after he had been fired in order to get W-2s.

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.


Maureen J. Gasiorek January 29, 2015 at 12:39 am

I was a former employee in the Meijer in Bolingbrook. I like to know when are the w 2′s form where sent out? I haven’t received it yet and it’s almost the end of the month. Please let me know about this information i’m asking. This is 2nd email i’m sending with no response from the first email i send out on Jan 27, 2015. Thank You!


britt February 2, 2015 at 5:42 pm

Have you received yours yet? Im still waiting.


Heather February 7, 2015 at 9:41 pm

I was told by payroll that they were not getting mailed out until February 2nd. I have not received mine yet, have you?


Carl knouse December 27, 2014 at 1:22 pm

I know I wont hear any thing about this but I was at your gaylord michigan store this morning I spent over 300 on grocerys in a self check out line my wife took our grand daughter over to the riding horse after paying for our grocerys and I said I would go out to the truck with both our carts and your door checker ( nellie) stops me and asks to see a receipt because I hadnt put in a bag if I go to this store by my self this girl treats me like a dirt ball if I go with anyone of my family members she says hi I really give a shit less if this girl says hi to me or not but to only stop me to see a receipt very rude also is bull shit. But I know you will do nothing about it because you can careless about customer service


Pam Gresley December 19, 2014 at 8:35 pm

I would like to send a big thank you to Emily, who works in the Pharmacy Dept at the Battle Creek Beckley rd store. She has went above and beyond to help me solve an issue with my medications. Also a shout out to Twonna from the Beckley rd gas station who is always cheerful and eager to help with anything. Thanks to both these wonderful ladies. I am glad that they are a part of the Meijers family and also making my shopping at Meijers pleasent. Merry Christmas, Pam


Denise Pawlowski December 19, 2014 at 2:28 pm

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.


Hazel LaCroix December 11, 2014 at 10:42 am

I understand that you are pulling the Chase Bank out of your store, located in Lapeer, Michigan
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE………Kroger’s supermarket is right across the street, the main reason I shop at Meijers is because of the Chase Bank
I did complain by phone, and Faith was the contact person I talked with. She was polite and considerate.
PLEASE CHANGE YOUR MIND, many many many people and businesses use and recommend this Chase Bank in your store
Sincerely, Hazel LaCroix


Hazel LaCroix December 11, 2014 at 10:45 am

On this site, I see a lot of complaints that seem reasonable to me

It does not bode well, someone up there needs to upgrade your image


Robert Adams December 3, 2014 at 11:29 am

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.


Freda Thomas December 1, 2014 at 3:39 pm

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.


Mike November 28, 2014 at 11:02 pm

I work at 161 in Lexington Ky. The new manager John Jacobs is not friendly at all….. the blue shirts team come and go when they want and think they are better then anyone else. 2nd your point system sucks, pay sucks and the way top out pay is. 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.


Anonymous November 5, 2014 at 10:08 am

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.


anon February 7, 2015 at 9:47 pm

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.


Icare April 22, 2015 at 11:15 pm

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.


Jennine Harkins October 31, 2014 at 10:19 pm

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.


Anonymous October 18, 2014 at 7:46 pm

A very good friend of mine was hired in at store 46 a litile over a year ago. 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?


Icare April 22, 2015 at 11:17 pm

This is against the law. Please have our friend file a harassment complaint with the EEOC immediately.


Franki October 8, 2014 at 9:22 pm

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.


Franki October 8, 2014 at 9:30 pm

Oh yeah, and management couldn’t talk their way out of a rough situation… They don’t have a clue about morals or ethics.


Tony October 1, 2014 at 8:41 pm

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.


Franki October 8, 2014 at 9:28 pm

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.


Lisa Crawford October 1, 2014 at 4:00 am

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.


Jason September 1, 2014 at 8:09 pm

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?


anon February 7, 2015 at 9:50 pm

this i know for sure, all Meijer brand organics are GMO free.


Doug Erman August 18, 2014 at 2:37 pm

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.


Icare April 22, 2015 at 11:20 pm

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!!!

Icare April 22, 2015 at 11:28 pm

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.

Peggy Schmid August 4, 2014 at 3:39 pm

Dear Hank
Hi, I am Margaret Schmid I work at meijer store #20 Alpine. I have been there for 6.5 years for over 3 year I have worked 8am to 4:30pm. They forced me to go to part time. because I work 2 other job and can not work 11:30am to 8:00. How can you do this to a single mom with kids trying to put food on the table. Please help me get full time back. Thank you


Julie Brown October 24, 2014 at 10:28 pm

Meijer doesn’t give a shit about you or your kids. The almighty dollar is all they care about.


Les Gates August 3, 2014 at 1:43 pm

I met Hank Meijer this past week at the opening of the Marysville Ohio store. Fantastic gentleman. He posed with me as we held my newly published book called Jerome. I would like to send him a copy of the picture.
Thank you,
Les Gates


Peggy Schmid July 23, 2014 at 6:35 pm

I thought you should know what is going on at alpine store #20, I have worked there for 6 1/2 years full time. 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.


Julie Brown October 24, 2014 at 10:31 pm

I’ve worked at Meijer for 15 years and they have cut my hours so much that I can’t afford to pay my bills and buy food. They do not care about any of us. They’re evil, greedy bastards.


L July 22, 2014 at 7:05 pm

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.


Icare April 22, 2015 at 11:35 pm

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.


Ronnie gill May 11, 2015 at 5:36 pm

Now I know. That’s this Isn’t total truth that meijer Dosn’t have a 100% turn over rate every year I think that you my be miss informeD it is inPossible. For any company to have a turn over rate that high every year. Doing so would put this company. Out of bussines.

We are building a Veterans Park along side the Meijer Trail in Belding,mi. We have the WWll Wall, Korean Monument in place and Labor Day we will have the WWl Monument placed in the park. We now have a dream of placing a Monument with the names of the veterans from Michigan that were killed in Vietnam next in the park. Please visit our site at
for more information. We have a model of the Vietnam wall that we dreaming on putting in the park and would be glad to show any an all Meijer leaders what we are doing. I am sure that Meijer would be proud to see it off to the side of the Meijer Trail. Please call Denny Craycraft at 616-550-XXXX an allow us to show you this great dream. Thanks so so much. P.S I think that people from all over will use the Meijer to visit the Vietnam Wall with the names of those from Michigan killed in Vietnam on it.


Lynda July 15, 2014 at 5:09 pm

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

Charlene June 25, 2014 at 2:37 pm

I am a retired Team Member of Meijer that is very upset over there corprate scholarship program. My daughter has recently reciever her letter stating that she was not going to get any scholorship from the company. How can she not be a candidite with a 3.98 GPA 5th in her class. 3 years on the National Honors, 3 years of SADD and being the vice pres. on top of all this she ran cross county track and Forensices (Competive Speach). We are a 3 generation of meijer family. My father (Retired 25 years) myself (25 years), my sister is (at corprate) my niece at store 25 her dad at 174(30 years) and her aunt at 25 has 15 years. What more dedication is there then this.I would apreciate a better explaination as to why she has not recieved this scholarship rather then a genaric denial form letter.


Matt June 20, 2014 at 9:36 pm

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? ????


audra witgen June 8, 2014 at 10:09 pm

I am so disappointed in the changes you made to your online photo service. you are no longer using snapfish which i found much easier to use. what you have now, is very confusing and hard to use. I will not be using it again. i would much rather pay extra and send my photos to the Lansing Camera Shop. i tried 4 times tonight to get enlargements ordered, and they gave me no option to add pictures.
If in the future you go back to Snapfish, i will come back.
thank you for your time…


Jane Rowe June 5, 2014 at 9:45 pm

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.


Gregg May 29, 2014 at 6:24 pm

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.

I am a potential customer in a market where Meijer is building 3 stores with 2 oping this spring Rockford, IL area. I was turned off when I saw their search ads for various positions. After viewing them I noticed whoever entered them into the system, in this case LinkedIn, left all the (fill-in-the-blanks) just as they read. For example:

Currently, Meijer is looking for friendly team members for our new store opening soon in (FILL IN CITY).
When the new Meijer store at (FILL IN STREET ADDRESS) opens its doors late this Spring, it will bring to (FILL IN CITY NAME) not only a convenient one-stop destination for grocery, gas and general merchandise, but more importantly, it will provide more than 200 jobs for local residents.
Filling those positions – from clerks and cake decorators to meat cutters and utility workers – begins (FILL IN DATE PHONE SCREENING BEGINS) when Meijer leaders will begin conducting phone interviews. Candidates who are selected to continue in the interview process based on these phone interviews will be called back for scheduled interviews to be held at an off site location the week of (FILL IN DATE MASS HIRING BEGINS).
Those interested in a career opportunity are asked to complete an on-line application prior to (FILL IN DATE PHONE SCREENING BEGINS) when Meijer representatives will begin conducting phone interviews with interested candidates.
