      Not perfect, but still a great place to work

      Oct 21, 2015 - Store Team Leader (Store Manager) in Austin, TX

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits (and yes, while I ended my career as an STL, I started as a part-time team member). Good career advancement opportunities Good vision and values Good work environment While corporate, it is still a highly decentralized company and there is still opportunity to make a mark on the job you're doing

      Cons

      Inconsistent execution and dedication to the core values by middle and upper leadership Sometimes focus too much on fluff (iPads in shopping carts, most aspects of the HSH program, fancy tech and certain aspects of new store décor) and not enough on basics (training, service, pricing) Favoritism (which could be true of any company this size) John Mackey, while brilliant, is too checked out of day to day operations and there's a lot of stuff that happens that is 180 degrees opposed to his "conscious leadership" views that he's likely completely unaware of. The decentralized nature of the company also sometimes means a lot of reinventing of the wheel and tends to promote a "sink or swim" mentality to getting trained

      Pros

      Good pay compared to others Good benefits Good people in a functional work environment They will work with you if you are a student Come to work on time, do your job, go home and you'll be fine. This is a workplace.

      Cons

      Often times everyone stays in the same position for years and years which means you need to have a plan. You can use this job as a vehicle while in school or be open to relocation if you want to move up. Some people will be in the same position for 10+ years. Moving up is impossible in most stores.

      Pros

      Health benefits, good environment, good pay.

      Cons

      Corporate management and some store management is detached from the experiences of those who work under them and sometimes make demands of them which are not easily fulfilled or don't make sense.

      Not worth it

      Pros

      Good pay and flexibility to your schedule. They sometimes also give you free (on the brink of expiration) groceries as a way to say that they care for their employees... uh ok lol.

      Cons

      Management is unorganized and the onboarding process is horrible. I did not feel like a real employee because I was never given a proper name tag or uniform. Co-workers are unnecessarily rude. I experienced discrimination and racism from both coworkers and customers.
