Very clique-ish unprofessional atmosphere.

I am 62 and was hired about 6 months ago. Many of our recent hires at our store have been 50+. The original comment is totally inconsistent with our store - we are probably 50-50 in crew members who are under and over 50.

I don't think it is policy that the company hire only younger workers. Working for Trader Joe's is quite physically demanding and I know from experience that TJ's will hire anyone who thinks they are capable of handling the workload. Anyone is given a chance and it is usually the employee that bails after finding out how hard one is expected to work as a crew member at a busy Trader Joe's store. In fact, the Trader Joe's that you speak of has an "older" staff as far as the average age of employees.
