Trader Joe's Careers

Store Crew

Store Crew

The Crew is the heart and soul of the Trader Joe's operation. They do it all. And all that they do is dedicated to creating a WOW experience for our customers. Most importantly, they have fun while doing it. So what exactly do they do?

As a member of the Crew, you'll handle a lot. But that's the thing; so does everybody else. What's more, you won't be stuck in one role here. Take over the register, have fun helping customers, bag some groceries, build a display, or stock the shelves — there will never be a dull moment in your day! All you need is a passion for people and fervor for food. We can teach you the rest.

Many of our Crew also have special talents that we put to good use around here. If art is your thing, you can craft imaginative, informative, handmade store signs that promote Trader Joe's products — and make our customers say, "WOW!" We use a lot of chalk, so if that's a medium you're comfortable with, even better.

Know a thing or two about wine? Share your knowledge and delight our customers by helping to answer their questions and make recommendations.

Have a passion for people and cooking? Grab an apron and help us plan, prepare and serve bite-sized portions of our fabulous food to customers while they shop.

All of our stores accept applications in person each and every day for Crew positions. To find out which stores have immediate needs you can search openings here!
