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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Granted, I haven't been working here for very long, 5 months, but absolutely love it. The benefits are great, the people I work with are all very kind, all the full-timers are freaking awesome!

    Cons

    Since it's a customer oriented business, some customers love to take advantage. I have seen a lot of really awful customers with meaningless complaints...

    Advice to Management

    None =)

    Pros

    Customer Service really IS the main focus making for happy customers Co-workers are amazing...friendly, supportive and fun Trader Joe's sells products that are easy to endorse Benefits are amazing...best in the industry

    Cons

    Training is a bit "seat of the pants" Internal communication can sometimes get bogged down The occasional slacker employee is given too many passes

    Advice to Management

    Implement a Mentoring by department program to train new hires Upgrade computer systems to make internal communication easier Hold people accountable for their in-store and backroom behavior
