    I worked at Whole Foods Market full-time (More than 10 years)


    employee discount, store meetings, co-workers


    worked my way up from supervisor to ATL /TL for over 15 years. Once I proved what I was capable of raising sales, Making All-Star Team, training a team with less turn-overs, advancing the current TL to upper status, the store leaders hired someone from outside the company to take my position as the Team Leader. 2 months later they fired me. 1 month later the new TL quit the company. After 15 years I learned; "It is not what you know, but who you know"

    Advice to Management

    Do what is best for your store and team members, not for your friends.
