The company strives for high ideals and education, but disinterested management is comfortable spouting rhetoric.

I worked at Whole Foods Market full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The pay is good; there is an attempt to hire genuinely interested employees who fit into the current Whole Foods narrative; the work environment itself is attractively modern.

Cons

Store leadership arbitrarily chooses which programs and policies matter to them. At certain stores (my previous store) the much-acclaimed "green mission" of Whole Foods Market was completely dead. The store no longer even composted, and most employees couldn't separate the compost/recycling types if they had tried. Fast employee turnover in the front end.

    Pros

    Great core values, Fun with other Team Members

    Cons

    Stores do a "Se;f Conducted" inventory count ( meaning you have to be in the store at3:00 am in the morning to count products on the shelf.
    Repetitive, Boring at times, Overtime sometimes a must, working holidays, working over night

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
