Trader Joe's Reviews
Trader Joe’s is a very good company! They have good health Insurance, dental, and vision benefits if you work 30 hours or more. Also if you work well you get a raise every six months with a cap of 24 an hour or so. My only vice with Trader Joe’s is that it’s very limiting on the mind if you want to use your brain a lot and don’t want to move up and become a mate. Also, being pregnant is vey hard at this job. Not only because it is a very physical job but HR doesn’t grant you much leeway when it comes to monitoring what you do and how many breaks you can take. It’s a fast paced environment usually so it’s also frowned upon if you work a little on the slow side. It’s also very hard on your back and your body. Other then that they treat us well.
I love working at Trader Joe's. I love that I get to learn every aspect of the store instead of standing behind a register for 8 hours of the day. It keeps me on my toes! The work can be physically exhausting, but seeing our smiling customers every day makes it totally worth the hard work. The benefits are good, and so is the pay. I feel so lucky to work for a company that truly cares about individuals, instead of treating us like workhorses. The only downside is that hours are not always guaranteed, so sometimes the schedules are a bit wonky. Other than that, I've never had a better job than at Trader Joe's.
The hardest part of this job is dealing with the occasional rude customer, but really, that is part of any job. The crew you work with is always close knit and amazingly supportive! The Mates are wonderful and always there to help and provide kaizens. The company goes beyond and provides free dental and vision insurance to anyone who works 15 or more hours a week, and if you maintain an average of 30 hours, you can get full medical insurance for about $40 every paycheck. The raises could be better, because no one can survive on less than $15 in this economy. There is also a lot of physical activity, you're constantly moving and picking up extremely heavy boxes of produce or dry goods. It's wise to get some braces for your back and knees, you will need them. This isn't the best job I've ever had, but it pays okay, I have insurance for the first time in my life, and when I go to work my coworkers and Mates make the day fly by.
