What is paid time off like at Trader Joe's?

Pros

Trader Joe's pays much higher than the average baseline for grocery stores. Good health benefits and a fair amount of paid time off once you work enough hours.

Cons

Thankless corporate structure looking out for the profit margin, and not the worker bees who keep the hive going, which is all too common these days.

Advice to Management

Value your workers.

Does Trader Joe's offer dental insurance?

Pros

Trader Joe's pays very well for a retail job, including great health and dental benefits. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the managers are very understanding. I never had any issues with scheduling and the overall job experience was great!

Cons

Unfortunately, a retail job is still a retail job. Trader Joe's may be the best when it comes to retail work, but you will still get yelled at by customers and work some less than ideal hours.

Advice to Management

None. The management was the best part of working here!

Does Trader Joe's offer family leave?

Pros

Good health insurance, flexible scheduling, usually chill coworkers, twice yearly raises

Cons

Benefits continue to get whittled away every year, corporate cares more about union busting than they do about keeping their workers happy, workman’s comp is run by a cheap company that won’t effectively treat your injury, major wear and tear on your body over time, poor safety standards in the store, feedback from unreasonable customers can prevent you from getting a raise if they write an email to corporate, lack of clarity on job expectations and requirements for promotion, almost no parental leave allowed and none of it paid, many life circumstances can cause you to lose your health insurance because your right to it is entirely based on hours worked, lots of turnover amongst the crew which means you’re constantly doing extra work to train them and make up for their inevitable mistakes, new hires constantly making more money than veteran crew members, no way to get an increased raise based on merit or seniority, no sick pay, vacation time accumulates very slowly
