    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent raises (sometimes) this is also disappearing slowly as the company grows
    Health coverage

    Cons

    Customers
    Full-time Crew
    Some days its the customers, others it's the crew

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should pretend to care about the concerns of part-time employees. I recently spoke with a regional manager about a concern I had with the way my store was being run. He told me on the phone that he agreed with me and reassured me that my concern would be addressed (typical Trader Joe's policy). I with Trader Joe's would stop labeling "No bureaucracy" as one of its tenets, as while there are not many layers of management, it is still incredibly bureaucratic. Not the worst place I've ever worked but easily my least favorite.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Food good. Some non-repetition of tasks.

    Cons

    Structure lousy. How do they decide who gets to be in charge of this?

    Advice to Management

    Value substance and hard work over appearances and kiss-ups.
