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

    Pros

    What I said in the title plus excellent benefits at minimal cost.

    Cons

    Long hours (although overtime is paid). In one week you will most like open, close, and work one or more mid shifts. You will work weekends, overnights, holidays, etc. Taking vacation is encouraged, but having a life is hard to do when you are working when most people are off. However this is the nature of retail.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job and develop the crew and other managers in order to make the job less stressful. Always work with integrity and base decisions on the 7 core values.

    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.
