Overall Reviews at Whole Foods Market

Produce Associate | Medford, MA | Dec 10, 2019
Not a great time
Company is in decline due to changing the very nature of the team member experience. Amazon buying the company made further changes to what was already a company that had strayed from its original core values. Toxic workplace culture

Overall great place to work, be willing to push Amazon Prime
Whole Foods is a wonderful place to work overall where I have received more support than any other job I have ever had. Be aware that Whole Foods is owned by Amazon and this plays a big role in what they do as a company.

Unprofessional and inexperienced management
Unprofessional and inexperienced and uneducated management. The store practices unfair labor practices and discriminates. I have alot of professional experience and the quality of leadership was very poor. The management only supports their own ethnic type.

Place For Growth
It was a good time. Got to meet a lot of people. Mostly did what I have to do and got rewarded for it. Just work hard and you will move up the ranks within no time.

Decent place to work.
Good beginner place to work if your looking to get into the work environment after high school or as a part time job during college. pay is pretty decent but work can become overloaded sometimes.

Depends on who is your manager and co-workers
Whole Foods used to be a much more fun place to work, and that was previous 2015. Where we were allowed to create and took much ownership about the place. But now it's different, it's very corporate. No room for creativity, it's straight black and white even its stupid. Other the joy of working its depends on who is your manager. The manager sets the tone of the place. A good manager will make your work life easier and more pleasant. Also who are you working with, working with people who are just working for the sake of money and filling the hour but don't care about doing the work is the worst. Since they won't carry the load of the job. So I guess it's just also true for any other jobs, not just for Whole foods.

How are the hours? Do staff really have to work every weekend like I've read on these reviews?
Asked Mar 25, 2016
Yes, this company cares about it's own needs above all. You will work when the computer schedules you, unless you have a school schedule. Even then they may not work with you.
Answered Jan 5, 2020
In two years I've had about 3 weekends off. And that's including time when I've had one of the weekend days off and worked the other.
