I worked at Trader Joe's part-time for more than a year

Pros

health care, discount on food, 401k,

Cons

over work , biased, at will job, management has no respect for employees managment often show little concern for workers need and health employees are over worked to the point of injury management has been known to make false claims on certain employees or singling out certain employees for termination and falsely lie on those filing for unemployment trader joes may be nice to shop in as a customer but to an employee it is no picnic in the park.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

my advice to you is to look closely at the managers running your stores

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Relatively nice mates (bosses)
    Free sampling at tastings and when coworkers buy snacks to share
    Good about letting you take time off if you warn them way in advance

    Cons

    Hierarchy of crew members
    Nothing to do if you don't work register
    No leadership
    They pretend to care but they don't
    Care more about customers than employees
    Can get written up for not acting a specific cheery way
    Immature leadership, If you ask for something, they help you, and then proceed to make fun of you for needing help with it and tell every other mate so they can laugh at your expense too.
    Phase you out when they don't want you anymore just to keep you on the payroll
    No room for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so rude to employees for the sake of good face. Customers already look down on you for working in a grocery store. Maybe spend more time being nice to crew members and less time sucking up to customers who don't care about you.
