Yes, & I do not see why the schedules aren't set in rotation so that employees can have a weekend off without having to ask. Hours were good when I first started, but now they only have money to pay Amazon workers & not those who opened with them.

Yes, unless you request time off, but it cuts down your hours. You are expected to work weekends and holidays. Only the store & team leadership give themselves weekend days off.

The hours are ever changing at Whole Foods, you never have a set schedule no matter how high up you get in the company. You are required to have open avaliblity on the weekends, you can request on off here and there, but you will be working the majority of weekends seeing that is when the store is busiest. You also have to work holidays too.

The hours are okay, the shifts can be pretty long for a cashier. We are required to have open availability on the weekend because it is the busiest time of the week. So it may require you to work 3 out of 4 weekends a month, but there is a lot of time given to enjoy life.

Weekend shifts were pretty much mandatory except if requested off or scheduled that way

Yes absolutely, depending on how needy your area is. Vegans and other malnourished groups shop there around the clock.
