Hard to Advance

Hard to move up if you're not one of the favorites. The people that work the hardest, get paid the least.

Payroll and Benefits Specialist (Current Employee), Houston, TXOctober 7, 2014
A typical shift begins with running payroll for the entire store, and will encompass a variety of tasks depending on the day. I will run a variety of human resources reports for teams and leadership, and discuss benefits options with Team Members. I will also consult with team, store, and regional leadership on concerns of the store including leading – more... investigations. Conversations throughout the day vary from discussing the health of the store and the status of new hires to serious matters within the store. I also post jobs and process new hires. Every day brings a different set of deadlines, which has helped me develop a greater sense of prioritization and time management.

I enjoy interacting with the Team Members and having a varied work day ( as well as learning new skills and processes), but can feel unsupported in the role. – less

Fun and Educational Workplace
Demo Specialist (Former Employee), Baton Rouge, LAOctober 6, 2014
Pros: discount!
Cons: high deductible health care and varying work shifts
It is fast-paced and physically intensive, the hours vary and you must be available for weekends and holidays. You will learn a lot about the food industry and about products available to consumers. Co-workers are awesome. The hardest part about the job is the schedule. The most enjoyable part of the job is the discount.

Regional Training Administrator (Former Employee), London, ENGOctober 5, 2014
Pros: discount percentage on food

Amazing co-workers and a fun place to work in. The organisation which has stores in mostly London and one in Scotland + one in Cheltenham is going through a restructuring.
The job is focused on being self driven and emphasises self responsibility and an open environment.
The best place to learn about food.

Great work atmosphere
Front End (Current Employee), Virginia BeachSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: great people!
Cons: no benefits
However most of the front end are part time and there is little chance of fulltime work even though they schedule you each week (2) hours short of full time?... so no benefits... but gainsharing is good after you are voted on.

customer service (Former Employee), milfordSeptember 22, 2014
Whole Foods once a great place to work were people cared about the core values but now they just hire anyone and promise everyone a chance to move up make you take classes and training to move up, use you to do work they don't pay you for the work you're doing. Do not work here unless you won't a part time job it's not worth it.
