Pros

Very competitive pay, better benefits than most retailers (health insurance, retirement fund, etc).
Great coworkers, managers, and overall atmosphere.
Worked with my college schedule, and any other scheduling needs I've had

Cons

It's retail: there's gonna be some cons...
Stores are only closed 3 days out of the year - you're gonna work most every holiday
You work with the public, so you never know what might happen.

    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 Management

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