I'd never want to work in a job where I have to interact with the public everyday, but if I had to by circumstance, I wouldn't mind working at Trade Joe's. Not only do they have awesome products, but seems like a genuinely cool place to work. People there always seem happy.

Over the past few years, a Monrovia, California-based grocery chain has been steadily scaling the ranks, rising 18 spots in two years to hit No. 2 in 2018. This year there was just one place left to climb, and the retailer proved it was up to the challenge, securing the No. 1 spot ahead of competitors Costco Wholesale (No. 4) and Wegmans Food Markets (No. 19). Since founding as convenience store Pronto Markets in 1958, America’s best employer has come a long way, even changing its name over the years. You may have heard of it: Trader Joe’s.

Aside from its name and number of locations—more than 400 and counting across 41 states and the District of Columbia—not much has changed at Trader Joe’s since founder (and original trader) Joe Coulombe opened shop. Its consistent attention to the basics may be the secret to its success. “We’ve been around for over 50 years, and we’ve never had layoffs. We stay true to what we know works for Trader Joe’s and our crew members,” says Jon Basalone, president of stores at Trader Joe’s. “You combine that with the pay, benefits and supportive, fun environment, and people tend to want to stick around.”

Glassdoor has them at a 4.1 That's pretty good. I didn't mind interacting with most customers while in Walmart, but you always get "Those" certain customers who you'd like to see choke on food... Thankfully I have found my place....

The folks at Forbes are experts at dumb lists. God, I get more and more sick of them with each year. And people love to take the (click) bait. Not sure which is worse; Forbes or their naive lemming followers...

How are they "best employer" if their entry level salaries are not enough to pay the ridiculous cost of living in Silicon Valley?
