    I worked at Whole Foods Market full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A very great place to grow and learn the best customer service possible. Plenty of enthusiastic people to learn from and always willing to be taught more.

    Cons

    Competition to move up sometimes relies on seniority rather than quality of work

    I worked at Whole Foods Market part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - true team mentality - management takes people of varied backgrounds and trains them on the job (management believes in them) - employees had an incredible ability to make a difference and were empowered to make their own decisions (e.g., offering a free sample to customers to encourage future sales, creating displays and endcaps/wings)

    Cons

    - still a large corporation and upper management wasn’t always understanding of personal needs or work/life balance - as they prepared for the Amazon acquisition, there was suddenly extreme and disturbing micro-management (“zero tolerance policy” signs up regarding where u-boats were put away, etc.)
