    Pros

    Some of the best people, most caring and motivated workers I have ever worked with.

    Everyone truly cares about the purpose and even though it is "just a grocery store" it isn't. It is a family. If that is what you want in a workplace, work at WFM.

    Cons

    Be ready to smile at even some of the nastiest customers ;)

    Pros

    excellent benefits, really tasty food, their care for our environment and the surrounding community, clean bathrooms, free samples, eclectic staff

    Cons

    very unpredictable scheduling, unresponsive management, popularity contest career advancement system, borderline cult like atmosphere, draconian point system for time and attendance unless you are part of their inner circle

    Advice to Management

    Try your best to treat every one equally. Try to give people that do not have kids stable more stable schedules also. Become more involved with team members but try to avoid throwing a wrench into the gears of every process.
