    Still a large company, but if you work hard, it's easy to move up quickly.

    I worked at Trader Joe's

    Pros

    Fun, environment. Usually customers are happy to be there. Full benefits. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Depending on the store, your pay may not start out too high - and it transfers with you. It can take years to get good pay if you start off too low because of the corporate logistics for pay raises etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I started at a store in Va at 13.00/hr - GREAT! I thought that was the case for all employees until I moved to NYC. Some of my coworkers there were great workers, but started out at ~$9.00/hr. They had been working there for longer than I had and I was and always would make significantly more than they did because of the constraints on raises.

    I worked at Trader Joe's part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Crew members and customers, lot of physical activity (no sitting around) being at the center of so many lives- there Groceries!

    Cons

    The ever widening gap between what was a standard ideal , and now how has been processed, corporate-spun & packaged, no protection from the " new" style of management, did somebody say McDonalds?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope that you listen to the reviews from the crew members who aren't afraid to speak up, Yes , they are afraid, believe it or not!
