I worked at Trader Joe's full-time (More than a year)

Pros

great flexibility, great health insurance, and some great coworkers. It was a great college job and a lot of times can be a really fun place to work. Customers actually were usually pretty great too because they were happy to be in the store.

Cons

your job is essentially taking something out of a box and putting it on the shelf and the company had become more and more corporate in the two years I worked there.

Advice to Management

Fight the change to becoming a regular big box store

    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Easy going coworkers. If there is ever a mate or merchant you don't get along with, be patient, they''ll be transferred soon enough

    Cons

    Lack of a set schedule and inconsistent scheduled hours.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the required management hours down to forty. It is impossible for a working mom to go full time. We do not have one at our store. It is a shame that only 20 something men
    get promoted. It feel very discriminatory.

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

    Pros

    They are friendly, good benefits , 10% of discount in purchases, very easy job.

    Cons

    You have to lift heavy things (50 pounds). They change your schedule every week. They cut the hours for those who work part-time

    Advice to Management

    The mates are good in care for the store but some need to learn how to treat people(The crew). They don't have the schedule work in advance(Only weekly so you never can makes plans or schedule any appointment ).
