    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people. Whole Foods brings the best people to their stores when it comes to team members. As far as leadership is concerned, it is usually hit or miss. They are either awesome or awful. The pay is decent. The insurance is decent if you're single. And you can pretty much choose your schedule if you've been there long enough.

    Cons

    If your boss is horrible at their job it doesn't always get corrected. And they tend to turn a blind eye when team leaders treat their team members poorly. Team member happiness and excellence has gone by the wayside since the recession. Also, they will let a customer yell in your face and then give them their stuff for free.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the pointless meetings. For the love of all that is holy. Nobody wants to come in at 6am after closing. There are people who have to ride several busses, commute and then have to come back to close again. There are people who lose two full hours of their opening and have to play catch up all day, all for a meeting where there is some game involved, or a bunch of information that could very easily be posted by the time clock or tmag or anywhere. TMs don't need a meeting every month to recognize greatness, either. Once every three would be sufficient. Everything else would be posted, and those who couldn't hear a single word anyway would have something tangible to read and actually feel like information was conveyed. Please. As a team member who has been around almost a decade, I can tell you THIS is what kills morale. I appreciate everything Whole Foods has done for me, but too often things that are important fall beneath the radar.
