I worked at Trader Joe's part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great benefits, great environment. They love hiring enthusiastic and happy people, which makes for an enthusiastic and happy environment,

Cons

If you are not firm in your schedule, they will schedule you for early or night shifts. Otherwise, they are very accommodating

    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, health insurance for part time employees, paid vacations, somewhat flexible about schedules (unless you want to be a manager), generally interesting co-workers.

    Cons

    Food comes from all over the world but people still feel like its some hippy all natural good for you co op type of store; no profit sharing; no emphasis on organic or even healthy food- they have some but its all about what sells; incredibly crowded at any reasonable time to shop; wasteful over packaging, especially of produce, only 10% discount.


  2. "Great place for college students, recent college graduates, and graduate students"

    I worked at Trader Joe's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    TJ's usually hires fun, down-to-earth people, and I had a great time working amongst the other crew members. It's a laid back environment, and the culture of the company is very open-minded. They treat their employees really well, and they always promote from within, which is great.

    Cons

    Starting wage is low, which is the main reason why I had to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Please promote only managers with the proper people skills...
