i enjoyed my time at whole foods i I got injured after 6 years of service I showed the best customer service helping out other employee,s and trained other employee,s and helping out customers find certain things and helping them put grocery,s in there Cars and helping out in other departments of the store.
free company lunches on holidays
Not enough hours at times
Seems to get worse and worse working here. You're expected to do everything by yourself, and do 4 different jobs on top of that. Management doesn't reward your efforts even when you work multiple different departments within a day. Amazon keeps cutting our pay, reducing our benefits and make us work triple for nothing. My hours keep getting reduced because of accidental "overtime " even though I never work overtime. My "raise" was only 40 cents, but I heard from team leaders who have worked for whole foods for years said they only got 30 cents for their yearly raise, when it used to be a dollar. I'd have to say this is one of the worse places I've ever worked. I hope to find a new job soon.
Our location had a high turnover rate which led to higher ups promoting people to management positions who weren't ready. Management was the biggest problem. They were inconsistent, rude, and picked favorites. There wasn't an environment of comradery between employees and a lot of it was because of management.
Free products, free food
Snarky managers, politics
A typical day working at Whole Foods is often fast-paced with small breaths in between. During downtime, employees do simple tasks to make the store as attractive to customers as possible. The culture of Whole Foods nurtures both professional and personal growth. The hardest part of the job is staying positive in stressful situations; and the most enjoyable parts are the unique, in-depth connections that one can make with customers
Paid lunches, break room with massage chairs and TV, 20% discount on store items
No healthcare for part-time employees
Working at Whole Foods allows you to interact with a lot of people, leave work at work instead of taking stress home with you, and provides part-time income when you need multiple jobs or have family obligations at home.
Working for Whole Foods gives me fulfillment in the Customer Service field. I believe I play a major part in delighting our Customers. I love the sense of educating the communities about healthier eating.
Very customer oriented, must be able to function in a high activity environment. Company is very accommodating for schedules (i.e. School, second job, children). Lots of room for advancement. Can be overwhelming during holidays and busy times, like any other retail position.
The pay is decent. Management and leadership sucks they don’t care about the employees only the customers. They play favoritism which isn’t fair. Employees are over worked and don’t get the recognition they deserve. Team members work hard while Leadership does barely any work.
