Pros

The benefits at Trader Joe's far exceeds that of any other company - including for part-time employees. Hard work is expected, but also rewarded with good compensation and a fair amount of autonomy in making decisions within your area and in interacting with customers. Because of this, employees are motivated to work hard and there is very little attrition.

Cons

Because it is retail, employees must be available to work evening and weekend shifts. It is physically demanding and it is not unusual for crew members to deal with various aches and pains.

Advice to Management

Continue doing what you have been doing to make such a great name for yourself. As the company grows and the number of stores increase, do everything possible to keep the small store feeling - no micromanaging, no planograms. And, please, bring back recipes in demo!
