I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Advice to Management

Spend more one on one time with new hires, explaining the store and how it works. Also provide feedback on performance in the early days.
