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

Pros

Awesome staff
Great benefits (if you want them)
Christmas bonuses

Cons

Management at my store did tend to be a bit haywire, but it was manageable and now I hear from former co-workers that they have straightened that out.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to your employees!

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

    Pros

    Fun co-workers, good food, 10% discount, it will really help you get into shape. Customers are mostly nice, reasonable pay, GREAT benefits.

    Cons

    The company is definitely shifting gears. You hear about how happy the employees are which is because of how great the company was and how well we were treated. Like valued staff members. Now that is being chipped away at. The economy can be a good excuse but honestly what was a small personal company is now beginning to treat its employees like they work at Safeway. Raises are lower across the board. Fun really isn't encouraged. Employee tastings have all but disappeared. Prices for insurance has raised. Peoples strengths and weaknesses are ignored and people are really just cogs in the wheel now.

    Advice to Management

    You keep taking things away, giving us less and expecting more and you can totally get away with it in this market. But crew- morale at my store and other stores has been at an all time low because of it. But you still expect the same amount and more out of it. You need to balance this better.

    Pros

    This company has amazing people and amazing benefits.

    Cons

    This company also shifts their managers around too much, which is stressful on the crew.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember that your Crew is running your stores.
