Trader Joe's Reviews

Trader Joe’s is an amazing place to work. We have a great atmosphere and it’s fun! They provide health, vision, AND dental insurance, as well as paid time off that constantly replenishes, and a 401k to which they contribute. We get raises twice a year (as long as you perform satisfactorily) and bonus pay opportunities and we get to try our own products frequently! Employees get a 10% discount on all purchases and free gym memberships. Not to mention that the company is constantly looking for ways to become more sustainable, we’ve cut a lot of plastic out and have replaced a good deal of it with biodegradable materials, and we now compost in addition to recycling and donating products.

Trader Joe's is an extremely inclusive company that focuses heavily on its crew members as much as the customers. I have had nothing but positive things to say as the team truly focuses on inspiring one another and providing the best customer experience possible. I have taken my job knowledge from previous management positions and applied it to Trader Joe's.

Upon disclosing that I am returning to school they were ecstatic! In fact they were just as supportive as my parents and that really made me feel like I am valued. A positive work environment that focuses on company and individual goals is the perfect fit for me.

The management team strives for excellence and will commit themselves fully to their employees. Not to mention there are wonderful benefits and a lovely work/life balance that cannot compare to my previous jobs!
Trader Joe's is a great place to work! It's Flexible, fast-paced, and friendly. We start above minimum wage and get wonderful benefits. Management is concerned with our health and happiness, and we're encouraged to try out all of our products for product knowledge!
