    Pros

    Relatively fun atmosphere. Decent part time pay. Sample the food. No two days will ever be the same. Not a physically demanding role.

    Cons

    Very inflexible to part time employees scheduling needs. Managers don't seem to communicate between one another very well. Messages tend to get lost in translation between levels of store employee.

    Advice to Management

    Management training could refocus managers to help develop store associates. Understand that part-time staff are sometimes coming from their full time jobs, and that Trader Joe's might not be their #1 priority in life.


  9. University of Connecticut is a great place to work at. Please come, visit and stay. You will like it.

    Pros

    Storrs is a small town far from the distractions and is a perfect place to study. People here are nice and helpful. Grocery store and CVS are close to the campus. For college basketball fans, we have strong men's and wonmen's basketball team.

    Cons

    There are not many ways of entertainment since we are distant from city life. We have nice farms and delicious ice creams through.


  10. Good research University that could do better to support it's researchers. Good access to core facilities as well.

    Pros

    Great collaborative research environment with most professors getting along well with each other.

    Cons

    University could do better to support graduate students financially to better enable them to conduct research.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more scholarships and provide tuition waivers to students funded by grants rather than teaching assistantships.
