Company really changed after being acquired by Amazon. So many high paying positions that people worked hard for were eliminated. So many full time positions are now only part time. Getting rid of benefits for part time 20 people.
Meet great people
until you had the company looked at by a consultant to make vast changes in the culture... you lost it... growing too big and too fast, you got swept away with the competition that you forgot why you structured "SaferWay" at first..... take back the company John.... get back to the original idea....
core values and the having the ability of input
loss of the structure that made Whole Foods great
Nice place to work. Liked my co workers. Into the community and focus on the community and the needs to the company. Culture was very relaxed. Enjoyable was to let us have down time when needed. Sometimes the direction was unclear and that was the hardest part of the job.
Run payroll, correct and maintain timecards. Support, educate, train, and facilitate recruitment, new team members, developing team members, and store leadership goals and directives. Learned payroll and benefits processes, people skills, and prioritization.
Overall a fun and supportive working environment where every team member is valued. There's plenty of opportunities to develop your career in a number of disciplines. The environment is fast paced and very customer service focused. But I've never worked in an environment surrounded by as many friendly and supportive people as in Whole Foods Market. They value innovation and strive for work/life balance within the constraints of a retail/grocer environment. They stick by their core values in all things they do and have been very active in the communities in which they serve.
Plenty of career opportunities
Got to work holidays
Love this company and very much believe in its vision. Amazing leaders are created here. Sky is your limit if you are looking for a company that allows room for growth. Great network. They are global and its very easy to relocate. Generous pay. Top 100 companies to work for, 5 years in a row. :) This is a company that leads by example.
great pay, everyone treated fairly / equally. lots of opportunities to grow.
No work and life balance, hours are all over the place, practically impossible to sustain a family.
Fun and rewarding environment. Work is never boring. CEO is a visionary. Whole Foods offers many programs that give back to the community. Started in Leadership and moved to Human Resources, Payroll and Benefits. I love making a difference in the life's of others. It is very fulfilling.
20% on shopping, good benefit package
Job was recently restructured, limited chances for advancement
Great team members, great benefits, and fun working environment. The company also likes to recruit within which allows a lot of growth for team members nationally and even globally. The company has made a lot of changes recently which has effected the team member morale in certain regions.
A typical shift begins with running payroll for the entire store, and will encompass a variety of tasks depending on the day. I will run a variety of human resources reports for teams and leadership, and discuss benefits options with Team Members. I will also consult with team, store, and regional leadership on concerns of the store including leading investigations. Conversations throughout the day vary from discussing the health of the store and the status of new hires to serious matters within the store. I also post jobs and process new hires. Every day brings a different set of deadlines, which has helped me develop a greater sense of prioritization and time management. I enjoy interacting with the Team Members and having a varied work day ( as well as learning new skills and processes), but can feel unsupported in the role.
