    Flexible schedules and great co-workers

    Pros

    Most people you work with will be friendly and easy-going. I made a lot of great friends here and created some good memories. I worked here in college and my team leader was always easy to work with in case my schedule changed. The work isn't too hard and actually enjoyable. I worked for another market in the past and just didn't enjoy it. The customers are great and usually friendly. It really depends on the attitude you project, so come into work ready and put emotions behind you.

    Cons

    Leadership is important here and sometimes other departments had a lack of morale due to having a bad team leader, or in some cases, even a bad store team leader. My location did pretty well in this area but we did hear about other stores having an issue with this. There were "problem customers" but that's part of any customer service related job.

    Pros

    Relatively easy, Good people, Average pay

    Cons

    Superiority complexes everywhere regardless or position, someone with my same job description bossed me around and told on me to management like a 4th grader when I stood up for myself. I was marked for "poor communication" and things barely got better since she holds a grudge. To my last day she was still distant and short with me. Get over yourself, for real. Everyone hates their job, I was told it wasn't always like this, that people actually had fun at work before Amazon bought wholefoods, and I can see it. Its like they're trying to suck any fun out of working here. Regional/ Amazon makes changes every day, varying in reasonability. Every time I came in I had to unlearn something I learned the day before because regional changed something. When push comes to shove managers wont have your back. Managers will give you breaks on minor stuff but when things get even slightly serious they wont hesitate to throw you under the buss. The bakery is female only, only 1 of either gender is awful, I've had both before. This time, I was the only man aside from the single overnight guy nobody ever sees. They work you JUST enough to stay part time and prevent you from getting benefits. On top of this, they plan on cutting hours. To become full time or even transfer departments you need to survive a VERY lengthy "review period", were talking an entire year here!
