    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (more than 8 years)


    Hands down, this is the most enjoyable job I've ever had. The people are great, the management is better than any other retail enviornment that I've ever worked in. We are afforded enough power to make customers happy and do our jobs. The customers are a cut above any other grocer, they are usually more respectful and generally more educated than a regular grocery store. This makes for a much more enjoyable customer service experience. The retirement plan, though reduced over the past few years, is still wonderful in todays market.


    As the company grows, hours are being cut as well as benefits. We once qualified for benefits at an average of 20 hours per week. That limit was bumped up to 30 hours last year and has wrecked havoc amongst its employees. People that once qualified, no longer do and are forced into the government plan which in most cases is much, much more expensive than what we had at work. They are also not as comprehensive as what we once enjoyed. Raises are still generous but nowhere NEAR what they once were. As the company has grown, their generosity decreased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand these are tough times and Trader Joe's still does stand out amongst other retailers. However, you DID cut our benefits. You DID slow our raises down. You DID reduce our retirement. There seems to be no acknowledgement of this. Instead, every few months, I get what I like to call the "aren't you glad I'm your boyfriend?" letters. They tell us how wonderful you all are for providing us with what we have and how well it compares to other companies. That's awesome. I understand these are tough economic times and things everywhere are changing. But stop telling me I shouldn't be unhappy that every quarter I have to worry if I will be able to provide benefits for my family because my hours are cut during the summer, a slow time for us and hours are again cut in winter even though it's busy. If I lose benefits with you, my cost will go up $150 per month through the government plan. That is not an affordable option for me or my family. Your company is growing and it appears to me that as you grow, employee benefits will wane. That is disheartening for me because I love this company. I believe in this company and I don't want to someday have to say that they let me down to the point of having to leave.
