Relaxed work in a hectic environment
Crew Member (Current Employee) – 2073 Broadway – March 7, 2018
The crew at Trader Joe’s is almost always relaxed, even when it is incredibly busy. We work quickly and efficiently, but there is no real stress in the business. Everyone is encouraged to remember that “it’s only groceries.” The management is great. They all perform tasks right along side regular crew, and try to keep spirits up when we’re the busiest. The only negative is a recent pay hike. Trader Joe’s recently bumped they minimum wage in NY up to 15 dollars. Everyone who was making less that 15 dollars gor pushed up to that amount. However, I had already received 2 raises, and was making a little less than 15. Instead of including my raises, I was pushed to just 15. Now I am making the same amount as people who I am training, even though I’ve been with the store for a year.
