    I worked at Whole Foods Market full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Though upon my leaving benefits where being redacted to lesser levels. Over all attitude of most employees is pleasant though could also be cloy-ish. But this allowed the atmosphere of work to be decent enough depending on your position and work load, because reasonably understood not all is equal.

    Cons

    Too "you need to care about organic food and the environment". Some attitude is that of organic is superior and with out fault. Many of the customers were the worst self-entitled minded people I have ever met.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back some of the old benefits that were removed.

    I worked at Whole Foods Market part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An exciting, super-busy environment
    Saw several celebrities doing their grocery shopping and even cashiered for one
    Employee discounts were awesome on store products and prepared foods
    Time passed quickly on the job

    Cons

    The half hour lunch did not cut it for me; I perpetually spent more time on lunch than I was allowed, and, honestly, it was always because I had to spend ten minutes waiting in line to use the ladies room.
    The job is tiring. You are on you feet the entire shift and bagging groceries can be hard on your back or just hard to manage if you can't lift much.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate how tiring cashiering is, especially when you work full time at it.
    Be grateful for those cashiers who really know the job, do it well, AND still give genuinely pleasant customer service. The temptation is to think that just new hires are hyper-friendly. No, a number of cashiers I worked with were truly dedicated and great workers. Did management appreciate them? I have no idea, but I did.
