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

    Pros

    Fun people to work with. The pay is okay in smaller markets. Working with food is a lot of fun.

    Cons

    The Captains and Mates are never on the same page. The Human Resources people are horrible. They are not to be trusted. No matter how hard you work, everyone gets the same raise, which was just cut by 25%. I'm sure it was once a great place to work, but those times have passed.

    Advice to Management

    Get better HR people and figure out a way to get everyone, captains and mates, on the same page. Too many mixed messages.

    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy enough work, flexible schedule allows you to have a life outside of work. Food is frequently provided for the crew.

    Cons

    No upward mobility. You're either a crewmember or a mate, or if you're lucky, a merchant, which apparently is TJ's way of favoring people. In my store all of the merchants are people who have stepped down from mate, but still get paid a lot of money to basically hang out in the office all day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting time with the fast track development hires and promote from within.
