Great management and team work. Excellent work performance. No pressure. Payment is good for the position. Jobs tasks are very easy if you are willing to learn and move up quickly.
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.
Massive, unreasonable workload. Poor, fast training.
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.
Whole Foods Market was a great experience and a great opportunity for me. I learned skills that I could carry on to other jobs in the future, as well as, that I can use in my everyday life.
Free snacks some days
Management was very stern and uncooperative
In the beginning of starting with the company was nice then after getting use to everything scheduled by myself once a week excepting me to get backups for the case and clean and fill the case help customers if no one called off in either pizza department or for fresh pack i had help towards the end of the night only If it was needing help only 1 store manager would help if the other store manger was off the other would not help my department.
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.
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.
