Pros

If you love food, people, and variety, Trader Joe's is fantastic. Your functions change throughout the day, management gives you a lot of autonomy in deciding how to handle situations that come up. Trader Joe's treats employees with respect and gives benefits even to PT employees.

Cons

Working weekends is a must... hard for a family person. Also, if you want to move into management, you have to be willing to move around a lot.

Advice to Management

Mostly I only have positive things to say. If there were any way to work out the weekend issue and ensure a stable home life (i.e. being able to move into management without moving around geographically) it would be a perfect job!

    Pros

    Great food and great people lead to an enjoyable place to work. Allow you to do just about everything. The full-timers are very helpful and allow you to have as much responsibility as you can handle.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can be very taxing on your body. Encountering unhappy customers is never fun, however, Trader Joe's usually has a fantastic customer base.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a better training program. A mentor program would be nice for a little while to get a good foundation of the workplace.
