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

Pros

Good benefits, positive environment, flexibility to come up with off-the-wall ideas and run with them. Environment supports creativity and innovation. Strong support of local products - always looking for ways to increase our local assortment and highlight the people behind them. High quality standards that set us apart from the competition.

Cons

Varying levels of commitment and buy in within the store, hectic pace which isn't for everyone, onslaught of emails! Retail environment which means never ending marathon of sales, holidays, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep John Mackey reined in - he has a way of making the rest of us look bad.

    Pros

    Whole Foods Market cares about every Team Member. They provide more than enough training and classes to guide Team Members to move up in the company. Growth is encouraged and developed on a constant daily basis. They treat you like a person.

    Cons

    Whole Foods Market discourages over time. They prefer to have all the work done before you leave which I find difficult.

    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Starting pay for working at a grocery is not bad
    Benefit package is very good
    At least 20% discount on purchases
    Casual dress code
    Open door policy with store management

    Cons

    Customers can be extremely demanding
    Under performing team members are often not counseled
    Open everyday but Christmas (time and a half compensation on some holidays)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try hard to retain your good workers! Under-valuing good workers, while in the short run will make marginal profits, will inevitably create a negative impact in the long run.
