Pros

Great people, amazing benefits(even as a pt20 employee), great stock options, Personal Wellness Account, very liberal attendance policy, employees have to be voted on by the majority of the department that they work in greatly reducing the number of "lazy" employees

Cons

Its a grocery store but beyond that it is an amazing place to work!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advancement seems to be cliquish to a point, I have seen an employee with lesser skills and motivation be accepted to a position because of what I am assuming is "seniority". The individual had been working in the same dept for 3 years and got the specialist position because he "needed to advance" even though there were other applicants that I had observed with far better computer skills, a deeper understanding of the network, and was far more sociable. The two applicants that did not get the position were both employed at WholeFoods Market(Academy Location in Albuquerque) for under a year and a half(I did not apply for this position)

    Pros

    Informative orientation, friendly and enthusiastic team members, quality food.

    High prices, even with discount. Management doesn't seem to have the best communication. No online scheduling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more organized when it comes to hiring. It should all be paperless, online and the hiring progress viewable to all management and hr.
