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

Pros

Awesome environment
Great benefits
Not stuck in one department
Opputunity to grow

Cons

They have changed the management structure and are deadset on hiring more managers from outside the company instead of inside hires. There is a particular culture that someone "off the street" doesn't get and it is demeaning and detrimental to the morale of the crew to have these corporate minded people be our bosses on the first day
Some customers just can't be handled

Advice to Management

Stop ignoring the people and culture that made Trader Joe's what it is! Don't forget the "little"people and consider going undercover to see all the double standards that go on.

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

    Pros

    Good starting pay ($11) + Benefits
    Nice friendly co-workers
    easy work

    Cons

    Horrible job/Life Balance
    Depending on management, shifts will be great or not so great
    Shifts are either 6AM-PM or 2PM-10Pm which are not the greatest of shifts
    retail gets boring

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to the needs of your workers and allow room for training and moving up in the system of sections within the store. There is no necessity in placing a new hire in the same position every day.
