  • Employee Discount(630 comments)

    20% minimum discount and up to 30% based on health fitness level (BMI, blood pressure, etc). This brings down the cost of groceries closer to what the competition charges for similar items.

  • Health Insurance(216 comments)

    Monthly premium is about $55, but the deductible is very high (~$1800) before coverage kicks in. The company gives an allowance on a debit card to help offset this, but copays are still high. Dental insurance is a joke and doesn't significantly cover anything serious.

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(149 comments)

    Good luck if you're an hourly team member - PTO is slow to accrue and be expected to work ALL holidays.

The best thing about the benefits package is the time-off. After working at Whole Foods for a few years, you begin to accrue paid time-off rather quickly.

Decent benefits but barely gave out parental leave and they offer no other kind of paid time off, except for regular PTO. No vacation, sick time (except that may be different for COVID), etc. Just PTO altogether.

For 2021 they've added parental leave as a new benefit. Health Insurance has very high deductible and copays, thought it is partially offset with annual health care funds in a debit card provided by the company. 401k matching is a joke at $140 annually. Annual merit increases are insultingly low as they don't even cover cost of living increase. Employee discount is good (20% minimum and up to 30% based on your health fitness level), which makes their higher prices more bearable. Amazon stock award for Global employees are a plus (I got 2 stocks when hired then 1 annually after). Bonus helps to bump up the generally lower pay vs market by up to 10% for most Global positions (higher % for those in leadership).

No employer contribution to 401K, like zero. You need to wait three months to access any benefits. No other real benefits or perks. Limited discounts, etc. Company discount on store merchandise, but with the low pay, you can't really afford to shop there with the discount.
