Not what it might have once been - now just a retail outlet.

Crew Member (Former Employee) State College, PA

ProsNice people, although they are mostly nice because they drank the Koolaid

ConsSafety training is an afterthought. I was hired in as a "crew" member at 37.5 hours a week (they won't guarantee those hours by the way unless you are a slave to a 5 a.m. to midnight availability.) Too many immature "mates" that really don't know how to create a caring staff - they drank the Koolaid for sure. Too much crazy work for someone who wants to be a "grocer." TJ ain't what you want it to be.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet real now that you're a box chain.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A Great Place to Work

    Mate (Current Employee) Sacramento, CA

    I have been working at Trader Joe's full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: The position of 'Mate' is the Trader Joe's equivalent of 'Assistant Manager'. Trader Joe's has opportunity for unlimited advancement, if you can prove yourself to… Cons: Working a rotating shift is usually required, meaning 1-2 closing shifts, 1 midday shift, and 2 opening shifts per week. The shifts for this position… Advice to Senior Management: Mates need to be compensated for how much work they put in. With the restructuring that happened last year, Merchants (even the ones who were… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
