    Pros

    Great benefits. Excellent potential to move up. Lots of freedom creativity is encouraged. You will decorate cakes as well as make pastries. Organic and natural ingredients used.

    Cons

    Only being able to use all natural ingredients. Everything is done by hand not a lot of tools supplied. Only morning shifts are available. Small teams only some stores have supervisor positions to be promoted to

    Pros

    I love the products they carry, the people you work with and their amazing values. They are good to their staff and wonderful to their customers.

    Cons

    I really can't think of a single con exempt for the fact that scheduling is based in the needs of the business as with any retail business and that means nights and weekends.

    Pros

    I've survived 2.5 years at WFM and love every minute of it. The ability to transfer to another store if you aren't being utilized to your full potential is awesome. Leadership is truly different in every store and the ability to shine and showcase your talents sometimes has to be at a new location.

    Cons

    The only con is that during the slower times of the year, which in the state I work in, South Florida, is that hours get cut.
