"Meijer was my first real job - one that paid the bills and gave me a start as an adult."

"Been working as a systems monitor for over a year now. I can say successfully that I wouldn't recommend it as a stable source of income. For high school and college students, it's an ok learning experience in preliminary ITS troubleshooting and introduction into ticket systems. Ultimately the job will take more from you than you will from it."

"I've worked for Meijer for almost three months and the pay is horrible for the work you do. It's simply for high school kids or college students trying to get through school."
