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

Pros

Employee Discount
Team Member Advancement
Health Focus

Cons

Unrealistic Pay
Inexperienced Management
Undue Stress
Poor Mid-Level Management Ability

Advice to Management

Don't promote those who show no management ability. Pay was less than adequate based on cost of living in my area, WFM paid less than local corporate fast food chains.

    Pros

    20% employee discount

    Beautiful store and great food

    unfortunately my team was very poorly managed, so experiences will vary depending on your store leader and team leader.

    treat team members with respect.

    follow through with plans even if changes cannot be made.

    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent wages, good health benefits, employee discount, flexible schedule, pleasant work environment, diverse people and backgrounds

    Cons

    I haven't ever experienced many. No company is ever perfect- there will always be some management choices you might not agree with where ever you work, but IME, Whole Foods does much better than most businesses for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    I've always found it easy to advance here, if an employee wants to do so. Keep promoting from within and providing opportunities to rise in the company, especially for those of us who lack college degrees.
