Trader Joe's opens hiring for first CNY location

Future site of Trader Joe's store in DeWitt.

A west coast staple is getting ready to open its first Syracuse-area store.

A Trader Joeâ??s grocery store is being installed in the Raymour & Flanigan plaza on Erie Boulevard.

Construction is currently underway on the specialty grocery, with no announced opening date. Trader Joeâ??s website has one job listed for this location, an assistant manager, or â??Mateâ??, as theyâ??re called at Joeâ??s.

A â??Mateâ?? will make between $40,000 and $75,000 a year, according to the website. You can find more information on the job, along with the application, here.

Trader Joeâ??s specializes in hard-to-find foods, and often buys directly from suppliers, so their food options are often different depending on region and season.
