Conseils à la direction
I have been with Trader Joe's for over 5 years. Since that time it seems as though Senior Management has decided to test distress tolerance of the employees. Human resources seems to come up with a needless changes every fiscal year. They got rid of the First Mate position, which was akin to an Assistant Manager. Then they came up with this "Double Bubble" competition that allows "exemplary" employees (read favorite employees of Mates and store Captain) to get double their mid-year raise. Next they put anyone working less than 30 hours on the Affordable Care Act, even though the goverment delayed by a year the employer mandate. Now they have gotten rid of the "Merchant" position, that was a Merchandising specialist position, and basically turned them into "Full-time" employees who get to keep wearing their Hawaiian shirts and have not manageent responsibilies.
My advice to management. Quit the human resouce experiements. Trader Joe's is a VERY profitable company. I do not understand why they cannot share that good fortune and reward their employees with the best wages, the best development, and the best benefits. I used to think that they were the Costco of non-membership retail/supermarket stores, now I think they are just heading down the path of becoming ordinary. If the economy were better, I would seek another job in a heartbeat. The scheduling practices, the favoritism, and the lack of desire to create an atomsphere of paying people with the education and experience that they bring to the job means to me that Trader Joe's is riding the wave perception, but once the reality sets in, they will be another retailer that people just visit not for a "shopping experience', but to buy a few unique items ala Cost Plus and leave the rest of the merchadise behind.
J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris 2 jours. J'ai passé une entrevue à Trader Joe's.
Turned in application in person, was scheduled for interview the next day. Easy interview, mostly emphasizing how you fit within the Trader Joe's culture. Customer service related questions - most important. Friendly demeanor a plus.
