    Pros

    You make great friends. You truly do.
    You learn excellent skills to take with you to other places of employment.
    You literally deal with every kind of person.

    Cons

    You literally deal with every kind of person. That means even the crazy ones.
    You learn that customers do not know boundaries.
    You learn that some customers do not understand that you are a human being.
    You learn that sometimes managers do not have your best interest at heart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should always be more professional than the crew.

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

    Pros

    Diversity of work, everyone is trained in most aspects of the store, so everyday you usually have a different set of responsibilities.

    Cons

    If you're new, you almost always have to work difficult hours, usually this means closing on a regular basis. I am a morning person so this was an issue to me, but it was perfect for many that I worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to schedule requests..
