DTS (Data and Technology Specialist) (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 January 2018
Nothing is easy and free in life and you have to work for it. WFM offers full and part time employment and a TON opportunities for growth and or lateral movement if thats all you are looking for. The work environment is fun and leadership are always willing to help. I learned a lot with Wholefoods and made great lasting friendships while working in Vancouver.
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.

SALES ASSOCIATE/CASHIER (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 9 January 2017
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.
Bakery Supervisor (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 August 2016
fun workplace and coworkers, i made a lot of friends. typical day at work is like just playing around with playmates but everybody respects each other. great benefits, discount etc learned a lot of things a lot of difficult customers but i was able to learn how to deal with them.
-as a company with a structure and general information guide...I was absolutely shocked with the way team leaders and team members carried themselves -the vote-in thing was probably a good concept at one time but its gone off the rails obviously -turn over was unreal -people wanted to quit, step down to part time and transfer after 6 months -favoring those who did not much for the business -dept, hours were cut but secret call-ins were made to do favors -poor conditions -no supervision -poor standards -no follow through -when members had issues they were threatened through back door tactics -anyone would train you/ bully you/ snap on you for no reason there was no real training -if you got hurt there was no proper protocol and you were treated differently -no gain sharing -poorly managed in some dept's
-this was a company i researched and shopped at for years and the moment i signed up and got to the dept. i heard nothing but warnings and wonderment as to why i left what i did for that job by the team that i was hired into...nothing but complaints about how badly it was run as well -will not buy food there ever again
it was a very unfortunate and disappointing experience....not nice
