    I have been working at Trader Joe's

    Pros

    The environment is very positive overall. It is easy to go there, have a good time, and leave with a clear head.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets very busy in the store and it can be a bit overwhelming if you aren't used to working in constant contact to people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the leadership at Trader Joe's is doing a good job overall. I have no negative feedback for them.

    I worked at Trader Joe's

    Pros

    Best reasons to work at TJ's is flexible hours, and decent pay for what you do great Part time job for students and people who want to work with little responsibility-other than showing up, cashiering and stocking. Easy going place to work.

    Cons

    The full-timers are manager's who for the most part are uneducated and got promoted based on doing being friends with the Captain or first mate. No formal training program for them it's a sink or swim baptism by fire management program. They shoul be more elective recruiting college grads who have taken courses in leadership, management, and human resources. They fail epically in that area

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Formalize a management training program-
