How is labor at your store? many stores in my region are missing labor. Yet they keep reducing our labor budget

Hey Alexia

Next you send in your Amazon cronies to take pictures, don't lie to our faces that you are taking pictures of the lockers while you take 500 millioon pictures of the loading docks, backroom, bakery, PDFS and one picture of the lockers, unplug your... read more

Someone got it all wrong

From a bogus job fair hiring 6000 to a hiring freeze in less than 30 days, what a freaking publicity stunt that was.....We can’t even make labor on a severely understaffed team. I cringe when I walk by the 2 checkout lanes during lunch rush and the... read more


Lmr ppfd atls are a joke they don't even care, oh and dont get me started on how they will put anyone in a supervisor position that has a no call no show and no prior experience in leadership yet he's been told its a done deal with less than 6 months... read more

We can't do jobs of five people

Since the layoffs in 2015, they have been stretching some team members to their very limits while firing others to save on labor. One person can't do the jobs of five people well. This is what annoys me the most, and it keeps happening. People get... read more

What Whole Foods might become...

Ruh roh...https://storebrands.com/what-whole-foods-might-become Amazon didn’t waste any time changing up Whole Foods Market after officially acquiring the organic and natural foods retailer on Aug. 28 and lowering prices on several items, including... read more

Strategic Priorities

Got an email from John Mackey about changes coming in Marketing. Way to go John! For bringing the holiday cheer to everyone right before the holidays! How are you going to reenergize the Team Member experience? Personally, removing crappy team... read more

Are things really that bad?

I'm considering changing jobs and applying for the new Whole Foods Market opening in January in Exton, but reading all the posts here and on Glassdoor has me reconsidering that idea. Is the situation really that bad at Whole Foods? Should I stay... read more

Regional update straight from the horses mouth.

Found out today that there is an emergency meeting tomorrow. They will do to regional what they did to demo and concierge. The new full time status is 36 hours. No more. This is region wide and tms will have no say in this. The release of MSI, GA... read more

Mystery Regional Meetings Dec 4th

Rumor has it Regional folks are scrambling to get a Global position. Do we really need 13 or 14 Presidents? 13 Executive “this & that” unnecessary positions? 13 Coordinators (for each team), 13 Regional Buyers (For each team) and the whole lot? It’s... read more

Oh how I wish it would end already....

I've been with WFM for over ten years. The past two months I keep hoping they will lay me off. I can find a better job. I'm stuck until they kick me out. I get disappointed every time I see nothing new posted here about layoffs.

Whole Foods closings in 2017

Frankly, compared to many others, we didn't really do that badly throughout the year. Now, what's about to happen once Amazon finally figures out what it wants to do with us in the long run is another story... read more


If you are SSS & GA, please start looking for another position now. You are next. With Demo and Concierge eliminated they are going to get any available positions and you are going to be stuck with nothing. Don’t wait to see if I am telling the truth... read more



Whos next????

Who is next to go and when? We need to start doing something now. When do buyers go? Is ga and sss going to go at the same time?

New Hires Everywhere

Holy crap!! Our store has 20+ new hires....and signage in front of the store that says we are hiring! I'm a long-timer and I'm starting to think my time is coming to an end. Why else would Amazon hire so many people?? We'll see but I'm sure after... read more

Electric Cart Wrangler position

Does anyone know if they’ll be eliminating the Electric Cart Wrangler position in the Southwest Region. I heard it was eliminated in the other regions, but it’s unclear what the fate is here in Houston. I would cry if there was nobody specialized to... read more

Concierge Is Gone Too

The same day they dropped the axe on Demo, they dropped it on concierge. If the store doesn’t have an unrealistically high amount of sales in personal shopping, no more concierge. Everyone’s knows Instant Cart and Amazon Fresh has replaced personal... read more

Demo Officially Gone Company Wide

They dropped the bomb on SW Demo yesterday. They have until January 15 to find a position or they are unemployed. Get ready to welcome third party drones that know nothing about our stores or products. The demo specialist in our store is sick to her... read more

Store Artist Position?

Hey all, ex-SGA here. Just curious with how things have been with the artists and all. I was recently in the new Bryant Park store and saw there was a whole ONE chalk illustration. Any hope for the job continuing as at least a graphic design... read more

WFM hiring 6000 people?

What’s with the hairbrained national hiring day. How are all sores hiring if many missed their labor budgets last period? Sounds like a PR sham...

National Recruiting Day

Whose brilliant idea was this? The store I am in doesn’t need to hire and the store itself is not making labor. All TLs have to be in that all day wasting labor. Amazon must be impressed.
