Pros

Flexible work schedule, friendly coworkers, casual work attire, generally good pay for grocery.

Cons

Some managers do not support growth in the company. Many captains pick favorites and that will determine if you are an order writer or not. Trader Joe’s Covid policies were all over the place.

Advice to Management

Respect is earned, not based off of your title. If a customer is harassing a crew member, please support that staff member and remove the customer from the store. Mistreatment of staff should not be tolerated.
