Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
I used to work for Trader Joe's back when it was really a career. PPO insurance and 15.4% of whatever your yearly salary was put into a retirement account, plus 70K to 140K(plus bonuses for Captains and First mates)if you were in management. In later years when I stepped down from management to part time to pursue my own businesses, I was making $20/hr. We used to get four reviews a year and could get a raise at each one. It was a crazy good job if you like being an employee. In the last six or eight years they were forced to trim back on the reviews and the amount of raises you could get in a year. I am sad for my friends who are still there and suffering erosion of their benefits.
