Friendly work environment with both customers and fellow employees and management. As a Crew member you are encouraged to have fun with customers, answering product questions, chatting about recipes using the Trader Joes products and food in general. Kindness to the customers is a big focus, even giving flowers to someone who's having a rough day. The brand is high quality , fun to try and easy to sell.Flexible hours and excellent pay for retail with reviews every 6 months and the potential for raises every time. You don't need to spend any money on wardrobe since t-shirts and sweatshirts are provided and you can wear jeans.
This job is physically demanding . A very busy store means you never stop moving , lifting, reaching, breaking down boxes, etc. , and since the stores are small the stock areas can be very congested which can make things difficult. It's also difficult bonding with your co workers because you're going all the time.1

If you love chatting with people and a range of personalities (from co-workers to customers) this job is for you. Lots of moving parts but it's simple when you get the hang of the day to day duties. Lots of standing and lifting depending on where you are placed but the rotating schedule makes a shift go by quicker than expected some days.
Management is sometimes chaotic and messy but the heart and intention is there- depends on the store and staff but all in all, you will get through your day despite the chaos.
