    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.

    Depending on the location it varies as to how much room there is to work.

    Dynamic But Ultimately Limiting Leadership Position

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Everyday is unique, and due to Trader Joe's unique structure you will learn multiple skills from HR, Inventory, Operations and most of all Leadership. The culture and people you work with will be one of a kind and frankly more interesting than any tech job you'll ever get with folks of all walks of life and experiences that truly make each day a joy.

    Cons

    While you will learn multiple "skills" ultimately unless you choose to stay in retail your whole life they will not help you in the future as none of it comes with titles or specific transferrable skills sets for resumes. You will work mental and life straining hours that can and will put an impact on your life if you are in a relationship or marriage. It's physically demanding and time off is not easy to use due to the limited number of people to cover. To attain a great wage you will have to work overtime. What you get out of it will greatly depend on the Captain (Store Manager) and if they don't make you a focus, or are good at raising leaders you will suffer. They have also unfortunately turned to be out of touch with current trends in modern work cultures and no longer listen to their crew actively.
