Perishable Buyer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 27 April 2017
A typical day at whole foods could be everything from mundane to hectic depending on what day of the week it was. I learned much there about good organics and various other alternatives to almost any food group. The management at my particular location was sporadic and self serving leaving myself and my coworkers to our own devices to try and figure out all of the situations. It's a great environment as long as you have the understanding that almost all situations, the customers will come first.

The company is based on favoritism, and you need to build a good relationship with leaderships in the store you work. If leadership does not like you well, there is less chance that you will be promoted.
Team Member (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 21 March 2017
The teaching and emphasis that is placed on "Customer First" can be shocking to an outsider. i.e. Treat the customers as your guest Don't point to where something is, walk them to it and show them (whether it be by walking to the other side of the store or close by)
It does feel repetitive and excessive, but after knowing HOW to give exceptional customer service, you are able to easily learn how to GET great customer service much more easily and just about anywhere you go.
Part-time grocery store cashier (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 14 March 2017
Whole Foods Market, Ottawa, has continuously demonstrated to be a fun, welcoming, supportive and exciting work environment. All of the team members and staff are very gracious and kind. The customers are pleasant, and I am always happy to be there. Management was great around a student schedule and always very accommodating to any needs.
Front end customer service/cashier (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 2 March 2017
Working as a cashier, you have to be able to handle working in a fast paced environment. WFM emphasis the importance of providing the best service to our customers and educating them on sustainable organic food options. However, management at this certain location was terrible and job retention was low. Be aware.

Bakery Associate Team Leader (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 February 2017
Whole Foods is a great place to work. Good culture. It's not an easy job. A lot is expected of you and you have to make sure you are withing you targets or you have to explain why you didn't make it and then be on conference calls etc. Whole Foods concentrates on good customer service. trying to go above and beyond. which is not easy to do everyday.
Food preparation team member (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 January 2017
Was the best places I ever worked. If I hadn't had to move out of province I would still be there. The people for the most part were great to work with and management were always open to working with any problems that might arise.
Employee moral is a core value
Pay could be tied to cost of living in more expensive markets.

Whole foods had a great managerial staff that provided great training and made it easy for new staff to adapt. I gained a lot of cashier and customer service experience working at whole foods. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with new and frequent customers.
