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

    Pros

    Better pay than most supermarkets (12/hr starting w raise every 6mo) and awesome, chill atmosphere.

    Cons

    Can get boring when there’s nothing to do

    Advice to Management

    Better explain exactly what one is expected to do on the job

    Pros

    Good company if you show initiative you will be given opportunities to advance. I did not feel like I was micro-managed by my superiors.

    Cons

    In recent years benefits program has become much worse.

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

    Pros

    Great culture, amazing company, good benefits. If you want to work for a company that is changing the food industry, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Repetitive, but so is any cashier position. I can't image a store I'd rather work for in a mundane position.


  4. "Great part-time job!"

    Pros

    decent pay, store discount, benefits seem good (I'm part-time and don't need the benefits), profit sharing (if the store does good and is under budget, everyone receives some of the profits), environmentally conscious, sustainability effort, helpfulness of everyone that works there.

    Cons

    I haven't been working at Whole Foods for very long, so I haven't really seen any downsides. So far it seems like a very good part-time job for me.

    Advice to Management

    At my store the upper management seem really friendly and down to earth. I like their open door policy on any issue that bothers you.

    Pros

    If you work hard, show up on time and ask questions, leadership is on the horizon. I went from a team member to a team leader in less than three years by being flexible and doing my best.

    Cons

    There aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget your first minimum wage job and how you felt about your bosses back then. That's how you are viewed by the people that work for you. The rules are the rules, but this company has a history of putting people before business, and though we've gotten away from that a little in recent years, if we make that a focus again, the profits will return.
