I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Stability, flexible scheduling, work/life balance, up to 30% discount, relaxed work environment, relaxed dress code, mission driven company, really work to live up to core values.

Cons

Poor career path for tech team members. There is an odd mix of leaders who rose through the ranks from time put in and not so much for their qualifications and now a new injection of leaders who have leadership positions just to give them the salary they need to come here from consulting and are thus not true leaders of teams such as ours. All of that adds up to a week career path for other qualified team members. Not to mention that there aren't near enough leaders here from which the team members can model and be mentored by.

Advice to Management

Build your bench strength.

    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing values and high product standards. Offers employee benefits for full and part time as well as a generous discount. Generally work with passionate and knowledgeable coworkers as well.

    Cons

    Descent pay for a retail job, but significantly less than all previous jobs after completion of bachelors. Lack of training to assist in "moving up". Be prepared to put in many years of following orders and working holidays if you want to grow into a regional corporate team member.
