    I worked at Trader Joe's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    TJ's usually hires fun, down-to-earth people, and I had a great time working amongst the other crew members. It's a laid back environment, and the culture of the company is very open-minded. They treat their employees really well, and they always promote from within, which is great.

    Cons

    Starting wage is low, which is the main reason why I had to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please promote only managers with the proper people skills...
