I loved the job and would return in a heartbeat. Customers are extraordinary, co-workers are well qualified, pay is adequate, health benefits are superior, products are good. If you like to put in a good days work, this may be the job for you.
Typical day involves 3 to 4 hours on the register, 3 to 4 hours working a combination of food demos, restocking the store, bringing carts in from the parking lot, working in the beer & wine department, bagging and doing carry outs, and all day helping customers as your primary opportunity.
I learned how easy and fun working in a grocery store can be.
Management style is different.
Workplace culture amongst crew members is very very good.
Hardest part of the job is standing all day; once you become accustomed to it, it becomes second nature.
Most enjoyable part of the job is working with the customers and becoming familiar with them.
Trader Joe's is not your typical organization and kudos to them for their positive differences.
