They Pay You What They (And You) Think You're Worth

Crew Member (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time for less than a year

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

ConsCan 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 Senior ManagementBe calm, cool, and understanding and the employees will thank you for it

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
