    It used to be a good place to work, now it is becoming corporate and no longer employee friendly.

    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, as long as you are willing to work weekends. Good place to work while a student - benefits start at 20 hours/week.

    Cons

    No longer a good long term employer. Hours can be brutal, but the compensation for that has dropped significantly. Used to be, the company utilized the unique abilities of each person. Now, everyone is required to be the same type of employee. People are hired for personality & suck up ability - no one takes responsibility for the day to day needs of our stores :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people excell at what they are good at. Listen to your own surveys and focus groups. You restructured the PT/FT classifications, without giving long-time PT crew members the chance to earn more for their knowledge and dedication.
