    I worked at Trader Joe's

    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 ManagementAdvice

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