    I worked at Whole Foods Market part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The medical benefits for part-timers were terrible. I took the job there specifically because I knew they offered medical to part-timers, but after working there is when I discovered they were un-affordable because you had to pay full price. So yes, they were accessible, but cost more than I made there.

    Cons

    A VERY fun environment. I worked in the front which allowed me a lot of interaction with customers. In fact, I was bummed when I was put behind a cashier as my favorite thing was bagging and getting carts. I moved constantly and was actually getting paid to lose weight - ha ha. The management was incredible when my son was flown via helicopter into ICU at a children's hospital just a couple hours before a shift. They were SO understanding about my needing immediate time off as well as occasional challenges after we were home while we adjusted to the ups and downs of life as a Type 1 Diabetic. I can tell you for sure my employer prior to Whole Foods would NOT have been so accommodating. I also liked the 20% discount on food and the opportunity to get as much as 30% off depending upon your health. It's great to inspire people to live healthier lifestyles.

    Advice to Management

    Offer affordable health insurance to part-timers.
