Busy fun crowded workdays
Cashier (Former Employee), El Segundo, CAMarch 3, 2015
Very busy from the moment i arrive to when i leave, constantly on the go. Making smoothies and juices all day long. Learned about some coffees, didnt know about instant coffee and was able to learn about that. Learning how to roast our coffee beans. Management wasnt very professional, didnt talk to their employees with repsect whatsoever. My co-workers were amazing, always helpful, smiling and a team player. Hardest part of my job was knowing every coffee we had stocked. I really enjoyed interacting with all my customers regardless how busy we were. Making sure they were satisfied with their drinks was what i aimed for.

Good culture and values
Supervisor (Current Employee), Washington, DCMarch 3, 2015
Pros: customers, values
Cons: advancement
Answering a lot of questions about cheese and gourmet food items. always merchandising. good thing is that you learn something new about cheese everyday. The hardest part of the job is probably closing my department, there is always a lot of work when closing. Most enjoyable part of the job is the customers, you see them a lot so you get to know them well.

Prep Foods Lead (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FLFebruary 28, 2015
Pros: great people/customers
Cons: communication could be a lot better
There maybe a time or two or twelve where you have to be flexible to cover other areas because of some people not coming to work. (Not the stores fault).

Customer Service (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 28, 2015
I enjoyed the advanced customer service training that I got here. The staff was always alive and friendly.

The pay is average for a high end food store but the experience is priceless.

Management was not the best.

No matter how you slice it. Its retail
team leader (Former Employee), cambridgeFebruary 23, 2015
A typical day is their not being able to plan out your day because it changes as soon as you hit the door. I was a manager for WF and was constantly being pulled in many directions to put out "fires". upper management (above store level - 5 people essentially) were constantly coming up with last minute gimmicks to increase sales or promote some cause. In my position I was responsible to communicate and sell these changes to my team members. It's exhausting for myself and to the tm's to constantly be bombarded with things we were required to learn. (including giving tms homework) I was embarrassed by what we were required to ask of our tm's. The Kool-Aid was force fed.
The hardest part of my job was cutting hours while asking our tm's to do more. UGH.. WF is a 40 billion dollar company yet it was the same mantra as a Wal-Mart or any other retail shop.
Our benefits are really bad - basically our health insurance was catastrophic coverage, meaning our deductibles for medical was $7500 and script $4500. However! our paid time-off was fantastic within 3 years I had 3 weeks off at 9 years I had nearly 7 weeks.
My coworkers were a blast! Customers for the most part were cool. You still have fussy ones but it is a customer service oriented job.
If you enjoy corporate atmosphere then you will love WF.

Whole Foods Market - Organic
Customer Service (Former Employee), Paramus, NJFebruary 22, 2015
The environment at whole foods is great and you really get a home away from home feeling while working. I believe one of the greatest perks of working there was being able to learn so much about the organic products and healthy living.
