benefits are crap, hours are long, they pay peanuts

Marketing Specialist (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsGreat food, terrific values that they stand behind, wonderful people to work with.I don't fault those that rise from the bottom to the top. That is one of the best things about whole foods, that you can start a cashier and make six figures managing a store (with no degree) five years later. But there are only a few store manager positions...

ConsBenefits start with a $1500 deductible the first year. Absolutely impossible to use the meager vacation time (one week) I was allotted (you build up PTO hours but you also have use them for Christmas, New Years Day, Thanksgiving, (no holidays built in) so I rarely got any time to see my family. Horrible work life balance. Salary for my work and responsibilities was way below market value. They do not pay well unless you make it to store manager.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep making money I guess.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
