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

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

    Great, Fast, but Repetitive.

    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Pay, Benefits, People, Discount, Food. Cons: Accountability of other workers is non existent. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
