Pros

Autonomy. Pay. Attire. Relations. Personal growth.

Cons

Getting 'too big for their britches.' As I was leaving the structure was changing and I'm not sure I agree with the direction.

Advice to Management

Remember its a bottom up approach in this field. ALWAYS listen to the crew members, they know what's up!

    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!
