"Simply put, Trader Joe's is listed as the #1 company in the country to work for. There are reasons for this. There business model enables them to pay their employees, securing quality, positive minded employees. Since each employee works in every section of the store, there is a great respect and understanding of all the jobs that need to be accomplished on a daily basis in order to provide consistent service to their customers. Management tends to be flexible and supportive and cares about its employees. They show this through not only daily interactions but through a good salary (2 salary increases per year if you simply do your job), but also through a matching 401k set up and exceptionally good health benefits. All in all it is a positive, supportive place to work."

"I have worked at Trader Joes for over 18 years. It started with 133 stores and when I left we were just shy of 500. Answering store phone calls and or e-mails would start off the day. With a crew of 8 people handling the daily business of the stores. Opening of a store or closing were normal calls the Help Desk Received. Any issues with equipment or software, a Help Desk Coordinator would assist the store with any of their issues and to resolve it as quickly and to no downtime to the store."

"I’ve worked for Trader Joe’s on and off over the past 20 years. It once was a great company to work for; unfortunately it’s now garbage. Few members of the management team actually know how to perform their jobs and the store manager spends all of her time making the job uncomfortable for employees she doesn’t like. Employees are valued based on personality. Hard workers are expected to pick up the slack for the personality stars who need to spend working hours seeking attention. It’s disappointing that Trader Joe’s chooses to look the other way when it comes to treating all employees fairly and with decency. The benefits are the only good thing I can say about employment at Trader Joe’s."

"Since 2008 I've worked as a crew member for Trader Joe's. During my time I've worked at several locations, worked at multiple different levels. I didn't value the company's ideals as much as they would have liked. But what I found value you was fraternus. Working together as a team towards a common goal, all having to meet the same prerequisites in order to call the day done."
