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

Pros

Co workers are friendly. Products superior. Customers mostly very nice. Great benefits. Great overall work experience. Best grocery specialty store overall!

Cons

Many new hires get instant jump into management. That is great for them, however, tough for crew who have been there for a while with a desire to advance. Older people are less likely to become management. 20 to 30ish have best advantage. Hard work physically and injuries happen as in any physically demanding job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While it is wise to employ those who are more likely to have the stamina for the long hours needed, the mentoring does not have the stability more time and experience lends.

    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...
