Are you ready to kickstart your career with an expanding company that invests in its team members and the community? At Meijer, interns and entry-level team members apply their education to hands-on, real-world projects that impact our stores and the communities we serve. We’ll help you learn, grow, expand your network and reach your fullest potential. In fact, our main goal is to hire the most successful interns into entry-level, full-time positions.
My advice is to take advantage of Meijer's fun intern events! Participate in the family led culture and positive energy that Meijer has to offer. One of my favorite events was the West Michigan Intern Connect. During this event, Meijer partners with several other West Michigan–based companies and their summer interns. Together, we put on a day filled with networking, friendly competition, and prizes. These events will afford you the opportunity to ask questions, seek out mentors and gain insights through new experiences.
I joined the Meijer family not knowing what Meijer was all about. At the time, I was in college and the position paid well, had good benefits, and flexible scheduling. Seven years later, my college job at Meijer has become my career. I come to work every day knowing that I work for a company that respects its employees. Some companies don't know their employee's names, but at Meijer, everyone knows each other.
I believe that Meijer is a better place to shop, so I knew that Meijer would be a better place to work. I started as an intern and was immediately offered a full–time position after my internship. The people I work with are passionate about making a difference and finding innovative new ways to incorporate technology. My coworkers are very supportive of each other and strive to allow everyone to do their best.
I had a very rewarding intern experience with Meijer in the Procurement Department. I directly contributed to several meaningful, real–world projects that positively impacted both my department and the company overall. Not only was I given several hands–on projects, I was able to learn a great deal from my co–workers and leaders throughout the summer.
Interning at Meijer was a fantastic opportunity for me to interact with many areas of the business and give direction to my career path, confirming my interest in Merchandising. I ended my internship with many new connections within the industry and a unique set of skills to set me apart from other graduates and applicants. After being hired at Meijer as a full time Merchandise Associate, I could not be happier.
Working for Meijer has been a great experience. Both my internship and full time position have taught me a great deal about the working world and the world of Distribution. It's a foundation that will serve me well into the future.
