Trader Joe's Employees, Tell Us Your Secrets From On The Job

Is our love a corporate RUSE?!?!?!?!

Do you currently or have you ever worked at Trader Joe's?

Because as you probably know, a lot of your customers project their romantic fantasies onto you.

Whole Foods Cashier: doesn’t care if I live or die, judges all my purchases, hopes I never return to their place of business ever again Trader Joe’s Cashier: would elope with me tonight, genuinely wants to know if this ravioli is good, gets my email so we can be pen pals

So basically, we wanna hear all about your ✨on-the-job secrets✨!!!!!!!!

Like, is this true??? Are your romantic gestures all just an elaborate corporate RUSE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

One time a Tr*der J*e’s cashier gave me a single rose for free and I saw the same guy at a bar that weekend and was like “Hey you gave me a flower!” and he was like “I don’t remember they just tell us to do stuff like that”

And if so, what's the weirdest ~romantic-adjacent~ thing you've been told to do for a customer?

Perhaps you have secret Facebook groups where you share Trader Joe's employee memes.
