I am a former employee of 8 years in the Prepared Foods Department. I chose to leave due to poor management, favoritism, and the inability to train your management team. Also, the work is not worth the pay. Everything is constantly being done by the seed of their pants nothing is planned out in advance, resulting in very poor communication. Leadership did not take department concerns seriously. Never, were actions taken to improve the prepared foods department from store leadership.

Team leadership is poorly qualified to organize and guide a group of people. They do not prioritize communication or focus on building relationships with their team--only with other team leaders, and with their superiors. I have witnessed several team leaders openly lying to team members, claiming they didn't say the things they said, and inventing policies that aren't documented by WFM.
