Whole Foods was both a fun and supportive environment
Pasty Chef (Team Member) (Former Employee), Highway 7 Markham, ON – April 27, 2015
Pros: Very flexible hours/very negotiable, and willing to hire you even without experience
Cons: Expectations are very high and maintaining permanent employment is a difficult test to pass
Whole Foods gives chances to many new employees in the way they recruit. I was one of those fortunate students lucky enough to be accepted by a large billion dollar company such as Whole Foods and gained much experience working there. The company has many meetings weekly to discuss certain safety and consumer tips. The Whole Foods Workplace also has an extremely friendly environment through the way their employees treat you the minute you walk in and when you leave. There were always smiles and small discussions and this promoted a very friendly, healthy, and supportive environment. Although my job there was terminated and not long lasting it was a pleasure to be given the opportunity and to have had the opportunity of working alongside such friendly people. It is not the kind of workplace where you would feel lesser than but instead always supported.
