    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time

    Pros

    Crew members (part timers) relationships with one another are great. Very friendly personable, and willing to put in a team effort. Customers are generally nice at most Trader Joes because of crew member attitude. It's infectious.

    Cons

    Mate managers ("assistant managers") are petty and if they don't get their ego stroked they'll wrote you up and put bad words in your "file." Whether you've had a bad or good customer interaction, weren't hustling enough etc. it's very insidious---and the discriminatory attitude the Palmdale store employs in upper management is bound to be sue worthy. It's honestly atrocious in 2016 in California.

    Advice to Management

    Petty, power hungry, racist, biased, overtly inappropriately religious---all words I could use to describe most management there. I would have no advice other than to get rid of them all and start fresh.

    Pros

    Great place to energetically stock, checkout, and recommend interesting and unusual foods at great prices, also get to sample and authentically review products to customers

    Cons

    Lots of management shifting, too little customer parking in almost every location I've been in (East Coast) which strains the dynamic, used to give away free balloons to children but stopped, citing environmental concerns

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and all the efforts seem to be in all the right direction! Please try to keep your management staff from shifting too much, if possible, though it could have been my specific store's dynamic at that time and place. I can see that renting smaller spaces keeps cost down, but the frazzled, stressed-out hustle outside the stores is a downer for the customers, especially compared to the overall great experience inside!!! And lastly, the balloons were such an visually cheery, kid-attention-getting-treat, and created such a festive atmosphere - we were told they were wreaking havoc on the environment - so what about using a biodegradable type?
