    Pros

    Casual atmosphere. Some of the employees are real nice and work very hard. Others are complete deadwood.

    Cons

    Trader Joe's has to be one of he worst run companies in America! They have absolutely no formal training program for newly hired managers. Favoritism runs rampant. Many longtime managers have never worked anywhere else and as a result, have an air of self satisfied smugness about them. Most of these managers wouldn't last a week in a company with real policies and standards. Most never have been promoted to a management level position in the first place. The store captain has absolutely no interest in providing any real leadership. He's totally biding his time until he can retire with a big stash of retirement money. He comes in late, goes home early, does very little when he is there. Loves to hang out in the back of the store bbqing for the crew. Claims he does it as a reward for their good performance, but it's really just an excuse to not work. The guys a total slacker and doesn't deserve half the salary that he makes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regionals need to stop being afraid of their captains and begin holding them accountable for wht goes on in their stores.

    Pros

    Fun
    GREAT PAY
    Good benefits
    Delicious Food
    Employee Discount

    Cons

    Cliques
    Favoritsim
    Lazy Coworkers
    Egos
    Crowded Stores
    Snippy Customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP with the cliques and management needs to MANAGE their employess, not just the people they aren't friends with. Their friends tell them what they will and will not do and they just say ok and pass the hard job onto someone else.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
