Well-compensated relative to similar jobs in area. Collaborative work environment with excellent coworkers. Quickly paced due to common staff shortages; but this is made up for by the quality of existing staff.

Wholefoods is a cool company to work for, but management could be better, at least for my location. Other than that the job is easy and most associates are friendly.

"Metrics" is what it is all about. As an In Store Shopper they want you to "pick" 1 item per minute. The employee moral is horrible; the management was horrible. Whole Foods ranks as one of the worst employers I've ever worked for. Management encourages employees to be snitches, I also experienced this with my Team Leader/Manager. There is no sense of teamwork between the employees, no support what so ever.

Very hostile toxic work environment. I’ve watched so many people come in and leave because of the work environment. Customers are nice. Employees are not.
