Meijer, Inc. Compliment - People need to stop blaming Meijer for their own fault at times
I have been shopping at Meijer for about 5 years and I have to say that I don't have a problem at the store I go to. I like how their are a lot of variety. They live up to their "One stop shopping" I can go there and buy car items, groceries, plants, electronic items, clothes and home essentials with out having to go to different stores. I have worked for retail before and I can understand some things can be out of worker and company hands. I do have to agree that they do need more cashiers and less U-scans (I personally hate those things) just because for one they take jobs away from people. And of course that is what companies are striving for. Thier prices are good especially when they have items on clearence!
I have read some of the post on here that are just so ridiculously stupid. One is made because it is possable like he said that he probably hit the pay inside button, OK that is not their fault. Consumers take things way out of hand and don't stop to think that maybe they might have done something wrong or they didn't read the sign or didn't read it properly and they jump down the workers throats and demand they get it the price they "think" they saw or get it for free. Then later complain that prices are going up. HMMM well when you have thousands of people who come in and out of the store their are mound to have people who are going to complain or leave perishable items in lanes instead of walking back or handing it to a cashier so they can take it back, the company is going to lose out on that money and of course it is going to effect the prices and when it effects the prices and people don't want to pay the price then the company doesn't make the money and they are losing out on more money and then it effect the workers because now the company have to start cutting hours. Then people start complaining about not enough workers at the store or hard to find a job, but it is all a chain effect.
So since I have worked in retail I can understand when something goes wrong. And that is fine mistakes are going to be made oh well move on. When I have a problem and I ask one of the workers and they are nervous it upsets me because IT'S NOT THIER FAULT and its like they are waiting for some one to yell at them or to call them stupid (which I have seen). And it's NOT right. And people want to complain about workers are rude or they have an attitude, hmm I wonder where it came from??? I bet one of those customers who do yell at these workers probably wouldn't be talkin' all that crap if that person was not on the clock. You just don't go some where and call people the B word or stupid because something didn't work in your favor OR you did something in which you believe wasent your fault.
But like I said I don't have a problem with Meijer nor for any other comapny I shop at. Like they say you have to be in the other persons shoes to understand it and I have.
