Meijer is partnering with Capital Area Michigan Works! to host a hiring event in an effort to boost summer staffing and prepare for future growth at its Lansing Distribution Facility.

The hiring event will be held from 11am to 3pm, Thursday May 2, at the Capital Area Michigan Works! Office located at 2110 S. Cedar Street in Lansing.

The event will feature informational sessions with applicants, and will be followed up with formal interviews at a later date. Applicants must register at meijerhiring.eventbrite.com for one of the 30 minute informational sessions.

The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer plans to hire up to 300 full-time, part-time and seasonal warehouse associates for its Lansing Distribution Facility. Position responsibilities include gathering store orders and staging them for distribution. Previous warehouse experience is preferred, but it is not required since training will be provided.

"While most of the positions are part-time, these jobs can provide a gateway to a full-time career at Meijer," said Frank Guglielmi, director of public relations. "It's a wonderful opportunity to get your foot in the door and demonstrate success within a growing company."

Meijer specifically reached out to the Capital Area Michigan Works! Office in an effort to ensure area veterans would receive information about the event. Representatives expect more than 500 applicants in attendance.

"Capital Area Michigan Works! is excited to partner with Meijer to promote the warehouse associate positions in the greater Lansing area," said Edythe Hatter-Williams, president and chief operating officer at Capital Area Michigan Works!. "It will be a great opportunity for job seekers to receive assistance with the application process and help Meijer connect with future employees."

All interested applicants must apply online at www.joinmeijer.com before attending the hiring event. Please use the keyword "Capital Area Michigan Works Hiring Event."

    Their idea of a "bonus" are gift cards. A couple for money off fuel (only at Meijer stations), 20%off your general merchandise purchase (valued up to $300 total discount) and 5% off grocery purchase. But wait, it gets better.....there's a five week period to use them (they expire this weekend), and you're only able to use the coupons that are given to you (If "Joe" didn't want his, I couldn't use them). Although every team member (after 90 days) receives 10% off general merchandise all year, Hank and Doug Meijer are too tight butted that they have to profit off from the yearly "bonus" they give to their employees. IT SUCKS!!!!

    Take it from someone that has worked at their warehouse, DON,T. I worked for 5 months and couldnt take it anymore almost ruined my back trying to pull their rates that they impose on pepol pulling their product. When your back starts to burn like its on fire its time to get out plus very bad training.

    I worked for Meijer from 84' to 98', once the sons took over they disregarded their father's values. " Its just business ", will only last so long. Everything works in cycles, and these companies know it. If Meijer plays their cards right, they could once again become a respected and fair business.

    Meijer needs to hire 300 employees because their turnover ratio is abnormally high. Admittedly, I have not worked for them myself but have had many close friends, adult children and other relatives work both at the warehouse and different store locations with nothing good to say about them as an employer. They do not seem to value their employees and the pay is terrible.
