Has Anybody Been Hired By Brooklyn Trader Joe's?

We got an email from a Brooklyn Heights resident -- let's call him "Joe" -- who applied for a job as a Food Demonstrator at the soon-to-open Brooklyn Trader Joe's. This was more than a month ago.

Trader Joe's said they'd get back to him "in a couple of weeks" but he hasn't heard a word since. So he'd really like to know if anyone else has heard from them yet.

So please, anyone, if you've been contacted or have been hired already, let us know, so Joe can give up his Trader Joe's dream and move on with his life.

UPDATE: Sorry Joe -- it looks like the Trader Joe's ship is sailing without you. See:

Joe, get a hold of yourself. There are other food demonstrating jobs out there. The food court at the Queens mall, for example, offers little bites of chicken on toothpicks every day at lunch time. Hale and Heart Soups in Brooklyn Heights gives you that little taste of soup in the tiny plastic cup. It's not the end of the world, Joe. It's the beginning of the rest of your life.
