Trader Joe's Reviews
Rating 4.57 out of 5 125 reviews
I liked the flexibility of my schedule, I would change accountability, IE if people do not do their job they are most likely not talked to about how they can improve their work
Trader Joe's is an amazing place to work. They treat their staff extremely well, the pay is great and you're qualified for a raise every 6 months. It's a very diverse workplace where you're able to work a little bit of everything. The shifts go by really fast and the customers and crew are super friendly!
I love working at trader joes, It's a fun Fastpass environment. Trader joe's company really cares about its employees. The only thing I would change at the moment is making employees aware of what they can improve at the moment so they can make changes and do well on reviews.
the company really cares about it's employees and always ensures that their customers are well taken care of.
The workplace is so safe, managers are very understanding and are willing to work with students and their schedule. The work is so easy and the pay is great.
Trader Joe's prides themselves on not micromanaging their employees which is true. The morale or the store however can be excessively eudaemonic which is only problematic when I as an employee do not wish to feign cheeriness. The benefits outshine this due to all three (medical, dental, and vision) insurances available (if you work the minimum required hours). Also, the company does two reviews per year that can come with a raise if applicable.
Trader Joe's is an amazing company and a great place to work for. The managers and employees are very nice and friendly, making everyone feel welcomed.
Trader joes is an AMAZING company to work for! Very passionate individuals that treat you with respect and dignity. Great pay and flexible scheduling.
There is a great deal of misleading information about working for Trader Joe's. Many of the bullets and talking points that managers and long term employees regurgitate are useless and are not based in reality. The bottom line is that for the first five or six years as an hourly waged worker(crew member) you will not make a living wage, earn sufficient time off and earn a significant amount of retirement savings. The average new hire starts at 16.00(approx. 31k gross annually)an hour and could be at 17.50(approx. 34k gross annually) a year later. The retirement contribution doesn't kick in until the second year so you could see a contribution of 3400 bucks that year. Assuming you average 38 hours a week for a year straight for the first five years. You could accumalate about 8 paid days of combined sick, vacation and personal days a year. Clearly 8 days is not enough. Furthermore , your hours are NEVER guaranteed. They can be rescheduled or cut anytime without any verbal notice.
Love working but during this pandemic we have learned that employee’s safety are not being considered.
Trader Joe's is the greatest place to work! All crew members are incredibly positive and great to work with.
Trader Joe’s is a good place to work because they have good benefits, pay well & are flexible with your schedule. Especially if you are a student. The managers are very kind & understanding & want to you do & be well!
I have been with Trader Joe's for over 10 years and I love the knowledge and experience gained working there. I feel supported and heard by direct leadership, I enjoy my coworkers and I believe it is a company invested in growth. As the company grows there have been times when I feel upper management has become disconnected from the store level demands. It is the hard work of Captains and Regionals that aids to bridge this gap. Now that we are truly being identified as essential business, it is tough to always have clear lines of communication, but the effort is still undoubtedly alive and apparent. Pay is good, benefits are good, but I think it would be nice if full medical benefits were available to all employees regardless of how many hours they work. I think TJ's could be a better at emphasizing the importance of health care, especially during the pandemic. All together, its a great company, with some areas for growth brought to light by the current social climate.
Trader Joes is not your average grocery store. Waking inside a Trader Joes is like stepping into another dimension filled with new and exciting foods and great customer experience. Trader Joes prides themselves on integrity and making sure each and every customer is well taken care of. Not only is working at Trader Joes like having another family, but even the customers themselves are a part of the family too. Working at Trader Joes, I know I am being well taken care of, and that while work is still work, the atmosphere created by the customers and the amazing management team allows us to have as much fun throughout our shifts as possible.
I have really enjoyed working at Trader Joe's for the past few years. The managers are very supportive of their staff pursuing higher education and are very flexible with scheduling around class times. The job is very active and you are always around friendly staff and customers to make each shift enjoyable. One of my favorite parts about this job is that each employee rotates through every position in the store each hour. My average shift starts out with one hour working a register, then my next hour will be stocking shelves or rotating the product in our freezer section then back to an hour on a register. Employees are also given the opportunity to be in charge of writing a product order. This opportunity gives employees a chance to be a part of the success of the store. I am in charge of writing our non-alcoholic beverage order and since the weather started getting hotter, water, tea and lemonade sales have more than doubled and I was able to increase our order to prepare for this.
Trader Joe's is my first job so I don't have much to compare it to but for me it is an excellent place to work. To begin the pay is very good when starting with possible raises every six month. The crew you work with is very friendly and helpful as you learn what your doing and the Mates, your supervisors, are just as fun. They are very flexible when it comes to scheduling, for students, parent with young children, and other needs, and very reasonable when dealing with unique circumstances. They aren't pushy either, they definitely care about the safety and comfort of their worker. Overall, it is an excellent place to work for anyone.
As someone who has worked in retail and the restaurant industry for years, Trader Joe's has easily been the greatest company I've ever worked for. My experience can best be described as friendly, social, encouraging, and inspiring. My coworkers are all incredibly friendly and open, and as your "friendly neighborhood grocery store," we invite socializing with customers and making friends with the regulars! Our work policy is definitely work hard, play hard. The management of Trader Joe's is transparent and autonomous nearly all the way up - as an employee, if you wanted to speak to the CEO of the company, you probably could if you wanted to! Our benefits are wonderful, including decent health insurance, amazing pay and frequent raises, and a seriously awesome retirement plan. Any employee wishing to move up to management is positively encouraged to train for it and make it happen, they're always open to new managers! If you're thinking about it, definitely apply to Trader Joe's!
