The best place to learn, grow, and experience food and its benefits
Associate Grocery Team Leader (Current Employee), Highland, TXMarch 11, 2014
I am truly blessed to be working at a WFM. I work with an amazing group of people and not to mention, I get to share my knowledge of food and its benefits with others on a daily basis. I am an Associate Grocery Team Leader, who's duties include leading and training a team, planning merchandising opportunities, ensuring the department stays clean, and – more... maintain smooth operations on a daily basis. Every individual is different and brings something unique to the team. These individuals are also emotionally different. So it's essential to have emotional intelligence at work. With that being said, the best part of my job is working side by side with my team members. And the hardest part is being away from them and my job. What more can I say, I love my job. – less

Best grocery store
Back-Up Dairy Buyer, Team Member (Former Employee), Plymouth Meeting, PAMarch 7, 2014
Pros: free food, benefits, customers and co workers.
Cons: leadership, suck ups, people stepping on you to move up and store leadership
Whole Foods is great company to work for; great benefits; great people to work for but there is a lot of favoritism that goes around a lot more the reason why people don't stay there too long unless you decide to suck up to your leadership to move up and step over everyone to move up. They do give out free food to the employees and do a lot of events – more... for the team members and customers to show their appericiation to everyone. They are a lot of people that take their job serious but way overboard with it and will make your job very hard and stressfull. Leadership alway say they will agree what the team decide on but its a bunch of bull cause they'll do what they want regardless how you feel and if you show it or tell them about it they will find a way to terminate you from your job even if its not something you did. – less

Bakery Team Member (Former Employee), Town and CountryFebruary 23, 2014
Pros: overall great place to work.
Cons: there was always a lot of work to do, and it appeared to never get finished.
Typically when I arrived at work, I would be greeted with wonderful aromas. I was given the responsibility to create gelato recipes and to assist customers in the bakery department. Because I was new, I was unfamiliar with a majority of the inventory. All of the co-workers knew everything though, it was a blast to bring customers to them and watch them – more... work their magic. In the end I learned how to make gelato, I learned more about what goes on behind the counter, and that my management had more supernatural qualities than normal everyday type of characteristics. – less

Bakery Associate (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GAFebruary 22, 2014
Pros: company had a great benefit package such as 401k, health insurance, vacation, annual bonus.
It was a great company to work for.
Arrive early in the morning at whole food.
Support bakery department in making various bakery products
Stock the isle with fresh products. Replace the about to expired bakery products with fresh products.
I had excellent time providing customer service support by showing them location for the product they were looking – more... for or actually demo the product by providing them a sample of the product we made in the bakery.
I enjoyed keeping up with inventory in the isles during all 8 hours.
I enjoyed talking to customer and providing them help with smile. – less

Prepared Foods Team Member (Former Employee), Campbell, CAFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: benefits, paid team builds
Cons: management, improper training, shifts
I had high hopes of this company. Going in as a customer before I was hired everything seemed clean and everyone seemed happy. Behind the scenes though it was a different story. I went in having professional training in a kitchen at a trade/technical school and I was baffled by what I saw here. Employees that did not care for their job and that did – more... not fear making people sick. Sanitizing water left for hours and hours cold, dirty with chunks of food. Cross contamination, disregard to hygiene. On top of that management is very difficult. There is a very unprofessional and unethical trend going on at these stores: Favoritism. This leads to dysfunctional teams with no sense of leadership. Creates hostile environments, leadership roles are thrown around to people that do not have the character or interpersonal skills for it= tension tension TENSION amongst team members. The only good thing is they have great benefits but is it worth all the extra stuff. Idk. I never looked at whole foods the same again after my experience with them. – less
