It is a really positive environment in which to work

Crew Member (Former Employee) Brooklyn, NY

ProsThe people that tend to work there are all really great, interesting, creative people. Also, the customers are loyal, and you get to know them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at Trader Joe's


    Pros: One of the best ground level management styles you will find in retail. Kaizen people. Most employee are treated better than they realize… Cons: Some employees believe that they are entitled to be less than the best because they have been there for years. Again, I was working… Advice to Senior Management: Check your full-timers and be more honest about their career paths at the company.
