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

Pros

The company as a whole is very good. They mean well and take good care of their employees. They spend a lot more time and money on educating employees than most would.

Cons

Depending on your store and leadership, it seemed to me that they were more focused on moving from day to day, and not getting yelled at. I found that they did not listen to team member unless there was a threat of legal ramification. I worked there for three years, but as I grew, I noticed how they worked and how if you wanted to move up in the company, it was more about playing a game than working hard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Follow the 80/20 rule. 80% of the work is done by 20% of the employees. That 20% are not the supervisors you hired to shift blame, but it is the team members who annoy you constantly with requests and issues that need attention.
