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

Pros

Good pay and benefits. Easy going coworkers. If there is ever a mate or merchant you don't get along with, be patient, they''ll be transferred soon enough

Cons

Lack of a set schedule and inconsistent scheduled hours.

Advice to Management

Cut the required management hours down to forty. It is impossible for a working mom to go full time. We do not have one at our store. It is a shame that only 20 something men get promoted. It feel very discriminatory.

    I worked at Trader Joe's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome staff Great benefits (if you want them) Christmas bonuses

    Cons

    Management at my store did tend to be a bit haywire, but it was manageable and now I hear from former co-workers that they have straightened that out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees!

    I worked at Trader Joe's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great flexibility, great health insurance, and some great coworkers. It was a great college job and a lot of times can be a really fun place to work. Customers actually were usually pretty great too because they were happy to be in the store.

    Cons

    your job is essentially taking something out of a box and putting it on the shelf and the company had become more and more corporate in the two years I worked there.

    Advice to Management

    Fight the change to becoming a regular big box store
