Great co-workers but poor management
Prepared Foods Team Member (Current Employee) – Redmond, WA – November 3, 2018
Specifically at my store, I can't speak for others, there was a severe lack of staff in my department for my shift, the closing shift.
My favorite part of the job was definitely my co-workers, they were very friendly, some of them still being close friends of mine.
The issue mostly was the management, they seemed incoherent to our problems as a department and very hard to communicate with, almost seeming like a brick wall that never listened to any of us or our problems with the state of our department.
A typical day was very stressful, being majorly understaffed on a daily basis and with such a busy store like our whole foods, it was taxing mentally and physically on everyone there.
I can speak for multiple people working there, we all developed mental strain from this job, some people even having mental breakdowns on a semi-regular basis.
Great co-workers, great benefits, great job security
Poor management, lack of communication with store leaders, terribly understaffed
