Fun Job With A Family Atmosphere
Dishwasher/Food Prep (Former Employee), Omaha, NEMarch 27, 2015
Whole Foods was my first job ever. It taught me how to manage my priorities. My coworkers never let me sink or believe I was a failure on my most challenging days. This place made me the worker I am today. The only hard part for me was living up to my own expectations. The food was awesome! I will always love this place.

Produce team member (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 26, 2015
Pros: we get free lunch coupons when we go out our way to get something done.
Typical day at whole foods consist of dealing with some good or sometimes moody customers. my co-workers are awesome just like leadership in my department. Hardest part would probably be doing the trash, so many boxes and so little space.

Supervisor/ Fish Monger (Current Employee), Danbury, CTMarch 21, 2015
Pros: gain sharing, friendly coworkers, banking pto
Cons: no life, no set schedule, no control of what store you're sent to if promoted to higher leadership.
I found that while working for this company there is a lot of room for growth and success, if you would like to pursue a career at a grocery store. I like what I do currently, but I feel there is more to life, hence why I went to school. This company is all about the people you work with and there must be good leadership/role models to follow. I would rate it 8/10, but I would like to find another area of work.

Nice and competetive place to work
Baker (Current Employee), Milford, CTMarch 21, 2015
Pros: discount card, tag sail, birthdays lunch etc.
Cons: short breacks, meetings very early at morning, or very late at night
Every morning I start baking all muffins, scones, and all pastries to put in the Breakfast Case
I learned what important is the oven temperature to bake pastries vs pies or cakes, and what pastries need to be rise before baked
Is very funny works with another TM, we can share ours skills
The hardest part of my job could be when I don't have the main ingredients to prepare the recipes
The best and enjoyable part of my job is when I make a new recipes
and the result are really good, another enjoyable part is the pay day!!

Productive and fun place with good food
Cashier/Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee), Bedford, MAMarch 21, 2015
Each day I would sign in with my special team member number, then go to checkout/customer service area and help bag, collect hand baskets, help behind the customer service booth and return items customers didn't want or need and ring on a register if necessary. I learned customer service skills and how to stay mentally resilient. Management was nice. My coworkers were great and very friendly people. The hardest part of the job was trying to help customers who seemed unwilling to be helped. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting free samples of good food and meeting and being surrounded by really great people.

Model compensation plan, great room for advancement
Specialty Supervisor/Safety Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 20, 2015
Pros: great workers
Cons: favoritism
1.Employees MUST be at work on time no matter what.
2. Customer service turns anyone made of iron into titanium.
3. Your team becomes such a close knit circle, like family
4. The hardest part is being a target of or witnessing favoritism
5. The most enjoyable part is having everything go wrong sometimes, being flooded with customers, having the day be over, and knowing that you and your employees managed to hold everything down, that we all could rely on one another and do whatever needed to be done.

Cold and difficult workplace
Selector (Former Employee), Cheshire, CTMarch 16, 2015
Pros: new skills
Cons: cold enviornment, heavy items, tireing
Starting out was a little rough, since I had to learn new things that I never used before. In the end, the work just didn't cut out for me, and I couldn't meet the demands the company asked for me. I would very much prefer to work at their stores instead of their Distribution Centers.
