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

Pros

Decent discounts, good product selection, and some of the employees and managers are there to encourage you to keep on.

Cons

Their is no leadership here whatsoever. I never met any store manager or did any upper management ever come up to me and welcome me to the "team". Very disappointed in their lack of vision for the store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Say hi to your employees. Make yourself aware that you care for your employees and are interested in them.

    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Employee discount card, gain sharing, medical benefits and 401K, and casual work environment.

    Cons

    WFM has extremely high quality service standards that are unlike any other grocery retailer. If you aren't prepared to offer great customer service in addition to your normal daily tasks then you should choose another company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WFM uses the adage "the cream rises to the top." Make sure you walk in the front door with managerial skills because there is little training opportunity provided by the company, but WFM is happy to promote those who seek knowledge for themselves.

    Pros

    A strong sense of shared purpose.

    Cons

    Some team members are so culturally committed that it sometimes comes across as cult-like.
