    I have been working at Trader Joe's

    Pros

    friendly work environment; pleasant co-workers; better than average pay; fun atmosphere

    Cons

    young bosses that try but are lacking in experience, which is only a very small part of my work life here.... the higher level management know what they are doing and are making strides in communicating that to the lower level managers... overall still a very small thing, nothing to worry about really.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn to delegate a bit better, communicate individually instead of a large group where the subject matter doesn't apply.

When it comes to grocery chains, Trader Joe's isn't your average Joe. With more than 365 stores in 30-plus states, the company offers upscale grocery fare such as health foods, organic produce, and nutritional supplements. To keep costs down, its stores have no service departments and average about 10,000-15,000 sq. ft. The company's specialty is its line of more than 2,000 private-label products (70% of sales), including beverages (its signature Charles Shaw brand wine sells for $2 a bottle), soup, snacks, and frozen items.
