I have been working at Whole Foods Market part-time (More than 3 years)
decent pay for an entry level job, offers growth (at a snails pace), company is guilty of nepotism (but can work in your favor, if you stay with the company long enough), low-key work environment depending on the department you work, offers OT on Team Leader approval, flexible with a lot of things including placement (team members can switch departments if placement is available), build your rapport and you can excel in this company, full time workers have great and affordable benefits and 401K
hours are sporadic, slow follow through from leadership, leaders have many styles (some of which are very difficult to work with), slow-process with leadership, accountability is very difficult, communication and professionalism is required and respected in tough situations.
Advice to Management
control nepotism, it blocks off a lot of talent from reaching higher position
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.
Sent in my online application on a Tuesday. 2 days later got a call and had a phone screening with them then was asked to come in for an in person interview the next day. The interview went smoothly and got hired on the spot! Some questions were more difficult than others but nothing too bad.
