The pay is great for what you do. You get a .25-1.00 raise for every year you work. I love that I get a discount and I can live comfortably off of the money. I love my job.

Massive workload. Endless checklists that make no sense. Co-workers that speak in their language thereby excluding you from the conversation. Zero positive feedback. Constant criticism. Extremely high stress. Poor training by resentful employees who seem to enjoy setting you up for failure by not sharing information or by not being able to share information clearly. Speaking with customers was the best part of the job. That and leaving the building,lol.
Pros
Nice customers.
Cons
Massive, unreasonable workload. Poor, fast training.

Trash, management has terrible communication, since amazon took over raises are constantly lacking the only redeeming part is if you luck up. And have good co workers

The group decides if you stay due to bonuses. So my tip would be to be friendly to your coworkers and work hard. They literally take a vote on who stays.

After 8 years Im making the same pay as the TM's that have just started and Im training them. We haveTM that have been there over 20 years and the make triple the amount. And do 1/3 of the job. It is a rewarding job because I have learned alot and the customers are great. Whole Foods does not practice their "Core Values" they so proudly talked about. I need a change and to be appreciated Im hard work who is always their on time and go in whenever they needed me.

Very hectic and stressful, horrible schedule. Your personality is valued more than your worker productivity. Easy to get fired, very high turnover rate.
Pros

Everyone who works there are really sweet. They give you good hours and they usually give you the time you request off. Although they pay well and everyone is nice your job is not secure. After 30 days all of your coworkers vote on whether or not you get to stay. If you don't get enough votes they give you another 30 days and if by then you have not been voted on you are terminated.

I didnt feel I would be able to move up in the company with no benefits after 6 months and the constant cut of hours every week I didnt always feel noticed in my hard work or get recognized for anything

Working at Whole Foods can be very fast paced but you manage to create friendships and healthy relationships with your daily customers, everyone is very friendly. Management works as best as they could with you if you need days off etc.
Pros
10% or 20% off employee discount card
Cons
No set schedule unless you're lucky

Good place to work but super stressful overall. Did really like the discount and would definitely reccomend as an in between type of job. Long term is easy burn out.
