Section Leader in Ashburn, VA

trader joes is good company to work for
Trader Joes is of the best companies to work for in the country especially groceries.I really enjoy working there , great management, very supportive environment
Crew Member in Hoboken, NJ

The management at the Hoboken location is terrible. So many terrible experiences during my time working there. I had a customer spit in my face during COVID and was told by management that there’s no cameras and to let it go. Also was turned down for a promotion because they were “looking for women at that time”.Also you will not be moving around, you will be on the register a majority of everyday. Especially if they do not like you or if you called out anytime recently. Also you can’t talk about the union because they will literally hold it against you. It’s a sad environment and I would strongly recommend against working here.

Their is a reason they are looking for workers right now, everyone is leaving since Traders Joes has changed the way they value their workers. They have become just like every other retail store out there. The pay is good so if that’s what you are looking for then go for it. Everything else has just become terrible, they don’t follow the values of the past. Good luck

Inverted pyramid organization with very supportive, servant hearted managers. Crew members are given opportunity to work in various departments and tasks in the store.

It's an easy job. I'm always on my feet so I get my steps in for the day. They offer great benefits and good pay. 20% discount is offered for orders over $20.

What is your favorite TJ item?

Shared on November 3, 2020

What would you do if we hired you to grow up our store? How many days can you work with us and can you work on weekends if we needed you? Would you listen to the other managers if I was not here to help you? Yes or no.

Shared on July 22, 2020

They always ask why you chose to apply at Trader Joe’s. Some DISQUALIFYING answers are “my friend works here” or “I live nearby.” They want to see that you have some familiarity with the company culture and the products. It’s a good idea to shop there a few times before interviewing.
