"As you may know, we here at WFM have 8 Core Values. What are some of your Core Values that you have in common with WFM?" (paraphrased heavily)

1 Answer

I made a comment of how the Cooperative Principles (the "Core Values" of co-ops) are basically the same thing, and that I thought it was impressive that WFM basically has the same set of values, but interpreted more in terms of being a private business as opposed to a cooperative one. I said that I am a true believer in organics and sustainable food systems, that I try to do my part in my personal life when it comes to environmental stewardship, because it's not OUR planet, we just live on it. I also made a comment about an interview that I had read with the CEO John Mackey where he said something to the effect of, "a business doesn't need to be ruthless to be successful", which really struck me as amazing and different, because that's more of an attitude that you find in the cooperative grocery world rather than the privately-owned one.
