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

    Pros

    The benefits at Trader Joe's are competitive.

    Cons

    What almost no one will tell you is, one of the ways Trader Joe's keep cost low is by not having a traditional approach to advertising. They use A TON of word of mouth to spread the news at Trader Joe's. This is great for consumers and terrible for all employees because no customers means no hours.

    This would be fine if management were upfront about this fact which they are not. It happens at every new Trader Joe's for the most part.

    With that said, my advice is to beware of working at a brand new store. There are hardly any hours to go around and they most definitely wont tell you that during training.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your crew members. Be upfront about the success (or lack there of) of your store. In this economy most will stick around and appreciate the honesty.
