Have you ever shopped at Trader Joe's and looked longingly at the "crew members" decked out in their Hawaiian shirts and leis? Did you secretly wish you could be among that group of happy people, as you scurried your way back to your Office Space-style cubicle?
Or maybe you've been obsessed with the opportunity to "ring the bell" at Trader Joe's -- happily telling other "crew members" that a customer needs assistance in cryptic nautical terms.
If you're consumed with all things Trader Joe's and want to join them as a "trader on the high seas", proudly sporting colorful tropical gear as you assist shoppers in finding the last jar of cookie butter or helping them place a case of "Two Buck Chuck" into their mini van, you're in luck.
Trader Joe's in Delray Beach is hiring.

The Monrovia, California-based company seems like a great place to work, too.
