    Amazing people, great culture, people actually care about you. They never gave me weird schedules it was always very consistent. I actually enjoyed work.

    I have been working at Trader Joe's full-time

    Pros

    Absolutely best company to work for whether part time or full time. I was able to work this job through college and my Captain and mates worked my work schedule around my classes, always understanding when I needed to put homework first. The company really values its employees, and provides the best work experience possible. Fun job, fun people, fun times. Also excellent benefits for only working 32 hours a week...

    Cons

    You'll gain a pound or two sampling snacks.

    I have been working at Trader Joe's part-time

    Pros

    Great work environment, from what I've experienced very understanding staff. The culture of the company has a great influence in the way we work, and the way we make decisions.

    Cons

    The only real con I can think of would be if you have high energy it might be hard to stand at registers.
