Trader Joe's Hiring in Palm Beach Gardens: Take the Quiz

Trader Joe's is at it again.

In anticipation of the opening of their Palm Beach Gardens store on September 19, the Monrovia, California-based company is looking for crew members.

Not sure if a career at Trader Joe's is right for you? Then take this handy quiz, provided by "Joe" himself:

  1. Do you have a sense of adventure?
  2. Do you like to make people smile?
  3. Do you like to eat?

If you answered "yes" to all of the above questions, maybe a career at the tropical-themed grocer is right for you.

Additional skills the company is looking for include a "passion for art," "love of wine," and creative use of chalk (for signs, not hopscotch, we assume).

Don't think it's all fun and games, however. Crew members are also tasked with cashiering, stocking, bagging, and customer service duties. In return, the company offers many benefits, including medical, dental, and vision coverage to eligible crew members, a paid time-off plan, a retirement plan, and a 10 percent crew member discount.

If you're a high school graduate with flexibility to work evenings and weekends, apply in person at Trader Joe's (2560 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens) from Wednesday, August 13, to Friday, August 29, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Download an application here.
