Trader Joe's runs a Ship built on the shoulders of fun, caring, bosses who work alongside their crew members. Crew is composed of people who usually love what they do. They are fun loving and they will become your family quickly if you want that. I have never worked somewhere with tighter work relationships. If you work hard you will get a raise every 6 months. As a crew member you move around from task to task daily and never get too bored. There is room to move up in this company.
Its easy for overqualified people to get stuck in this job for a little too long. Its just comfortable enough to hook you. This job is hard on your body. Lots of heavy lifting/tight spaces that don't allow you to lift properly.
Advice to Management
Mostly keep doing what your doing. Stay humble. Keep watching for those employee's who are going the extra mile and reward them--praise them in front of the crew. Do a better job of mentoring every sing crew member. It really makes a difference.

The manager was straightforward and clear about my expectations. Because I was only part-time, management was flexible regarding my schedule.
