Fine place to work
Grocery Buyer (Current Employee) –  Kildeer, ILAugust 16, 2017
Like anywhere there are ups and downs. The random changes have made it hard to maintain a consistent life balance. Pay is fine for work you do but not many other benefits.
Pros
Sampling
Cons
Management/ company communication

Meat Clerk/Floater (Former Employee) –  Campbell, CAAugust 15, 2017
The store is and corperation is run badly. They play favorites with people they like and not with hardest working people. The people who make the store run are the employees, they are awesome but leadership (management) sucks.
Pros
Awesome coworkers, good product

Grocery Team Member (Current Employee) –  Columbia, MDAugust 14, 2017
Whole Foods Markets is an interesting place to work because it has workers from all cultural back grounds. It also gives a good and interesting working environment for people who enjoy being with people and ready to learn.

People will always look for a great store with good costumer care, quality services, timely delivery etc and I think Whole Foods Market is a blend of all the qualities mentioned above.

Descent Place to Work
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 14, 2017
I believe it really depends on the particular store that you work at. There are things that as a company I believe could be better but the personality of the store itself makes working there positive or negative and fortunately I work with good people in an accepting store environment.

Working hewre actually felt like an extention of family.
Produce Team Member (Former Employee) –  Overland Park, KSAugust 14, 2017
From the time of clocking in I actually enjoyed what I did and looked forward to going in to work each day.
The management was more than willing to get in and get their hands dirty right along with the lowest man on the team.
The hardest part of the job.....there really wasn't a hard part of the job. I really enjoyed what I did.
Pros
Fun work environment and friendly coworkers that wanted to work.
Cons
none

Very, very strict.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAAugust 13, 2017
It felt a lot like school. Constant quizzing. You have to know so much. The hours are crazy. There are so many rules. You are constantly being told what to do, and not in a directive type of way, but a babying type of way. Everyone is working 30 hours a week. All. The. Time. You're graded on multiple things a day. Management tends to lecture you over things that other businesses wouldn't think twice about. I could never get over the fact that we had to ask for water and to use the restroom. The breaks are very short as well. They watch you like crazy. Coworkers are awesome, the pay is good, but the management is so poor that it clouds the best parts of the job.
Also, there's definitely a job culture. It's easy to feel left out because you are newer or maybe not as outgoing or "healthy" as the other associates. I don't know if they realize it, but it's been an issue for many people.
Pros
Friendships, being confident in your products, fast-paced environment, pay
Cons
Management, rules, absence policy, constant reviews and quizzes, short breaks, absolutely no freedom, crazy job culture

Seafood Service Team Member (Former Employee) –  Woodmere, OHAugust 12, 2017
The only bad thing I have to say is that it is still a retail environment with some crazy customers that can ruin your day, but most customers are nice. The management treats you like family and they definitely want you to succeed and are always there for support. Loved the learning of aspects that I would not have picked up!
Pros
Discount, Employee Week, Good Trade To Learn
Cons
Managers, Timing, Customers

Prepared Foods Team Member (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAAugust 12, 2017
The whole concept of this company just made it inviting to work at. Even though there were many departments in the store, the company worked together as a whole. Team members had the freedom to work the way they pleased, as long as it still remained professional
Pros
Steady throughout the day
Cons
Rushed breaks
