I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Above union wage pay with bonuses annually and raises every 6 months
Relatively simple and easy to learn job tasks

Cons

Can be high stress depending on your management
Repetitive, but the high pay makes it hard to leave. Many employees stay for years on end.
A very unforgiving mentality on performance failure, this can be seen as a pro or a con as it pushes you to try

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be calm, cool, and understanding and the employees will thank you for it

    Current Employee - Part Time Crew Member in Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Part Time Crew Member in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, health insurance for part time employees, paid vacations, somewhat flexible about schedules (unless you want to be a manager), generally interesting co-workers.

    Cons

    Food comes from all over the world but people still feel like its some hippy all natural good for you co op type of store; no profit sharing; no emphasis on organic or even healthy food- they have some but its all about what sells; incredibly crowded at any reasonable time to shop; wasteful over packaging, especially of produce, only 10% discount.
