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

    Pros

    Employees receive at least 20% discount.

    Cons

    It is not as good as it appears to be. It has gone down and down. Buddy systems: Employees who have integrity and abilities might not get promoted if he/she doesn't kiss up to upper 'leaders". Too many bureaucrat. Management levels are totally lack of management skills. Some are even lack of class. Most employees are frustrated and burned out. It is a big gossiping pool.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Job title doesn't reflect who you are, your character does.

    I worked at Whole Foods Market part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    the discounts, wage, fellow employees and most of the products were pretty great. I enjoyed my initial few months of work here.

    Cons

    horrible upper management treats employees as underlings. hired me under the pretense that my school schedule was no problem; quickly put me on the schedule 5 days a week at 35 hours, after I had been hired as a 20-25 hour a week employee. production is their TOP priority, so when sales were lower than normal, extreme measures were used to scare employees into working "harder". Overall, the literature and facade of Whole Foods being a mecca for wonderful employee treatment is ridiculous

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we're people with lives of our own, and do not want to be tethered into breaking our backs to present the gelato as we would our first born child. sorry.
