    Trader Joe's is the only place I shop now for food (besides the local produce market)

    A hell of a lot cheaper than say Ralphs or what have you, and with foods 5x as delicious

    The lines at the store by me are incredibly long and not worth the wait. Just to get into the store even.

    trader joes is alright but their produce is disgusting... it's in plastic boxes and usually over ripe or moldy. i feel like the majority of the food at trader joes is frozen food or cookies/breads.

    just cashier/bagger/customer service, for 2 years.

    it was fun at first, then our store moved to a new location that was 3x the size (second biggest whole foods) and it got really shitty... management and new customers.

    the san diego whole foods are nice... theres like 3 of them right? i have a few friends working at one of them down there. i like how they don't require the employees to wear the aprons.

    p.s. john mackey is a douche.

    Tj's is known in the service industry as one of the great places to work in terms of employee treatment and benefits (up there with In N Out and Starbucks).

    Lately the wraps, sandwiches and salads pre-made to go are really letting me down. They almost compare to gas station food.

    I am addicted to TJ's strawberry lemonade.

    Shit's like crack.



    I also have a love affair with their Thai chicken pasta salad, their white corn tortilla chips and the goat cheese pizza.

    They have awesome cereals, good hummus, a decent wine selection, and amazing Greek yogurts.

    So true, Trader Joe's produce is nas-tay! There have been multiple occasions where I have seen moldy or spoiled items in their produce section.

    Trader Joe's chocolate covered peanut pretzels, blue cheese roasted pecan dip, ice tea lemonade, and organic three cheese pizza on the other hand are great.

    And I have a buddy who was a long time manager for multiple locations who got paid bank.
