Application Details

I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Trader Joe's in February 2013.

Interview Details

I walked into the Trader Joe's store to submit a resume in person. Upon handing it to the manager he asked if I was available to interview on the spot. I agreed and we stepped to the side and had a casual interview that lasted about 15 minutes. I was asked questions such as: whether I had experience as a cashier, what I think the daily tasks over a Trader Joe's employee are, and what my favorite Trader Joe's products are.

Interview Questions
  • The unexpected question for me was what my favorite Trader Joe's brand products are, I had to stop and think about specifically which products I buy the most and why I like them. Make sure you are familiar with their products and store layout before you begin the interview.   View Answer

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Trader Joe's in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The postion was for temporary help at Christmas time and for the upcoming holidays. It appeared they had far more applicants than they had positions for. The interview was short and to the point. Nothing out of ordinary. Got the feeling they had already filled the positions.
