My store has been firing TLs ATLs and Tms that earn a lot to make way for new hires that can start at $15. STLs are looking for any reason to separatefrom these high earners. They ask for too much to be done and then write TMs up for OT! Watch your... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Whole Foods Market Inc.
I’m quitting in a month, how long do I have to use my money in my FSA? I have a couple thousand bucks in it. Does it go back to WF on the day after I quit, a month after or what? Also, any advice on spending the FSA money online? Don’t wanna get... — read more
I blame myself for not inquiring better about this company before applying for a job here. I left a company that is 100 times better than Whole Foods looking at it from this perspective, but now it’s too late. If there was anyway to go back there, I... — read more
Text said store hours are normal in Denver on Monday? Wow
It’s so sad WF has come to this. The comment beginning “You’re not alone” is absolutely right. I understand exactly and agree, there is a tremendous amount of abuse. I had to quit because I felt like I was going to stroke out. My health went downhill... — read more
According to Innview app tms get paid $40.00 for proof of vaccination. But, has anyone been paid yet????
I can’t complain too much, it’s the only option I have so far, but the amount of work I do is really too much. At first I even blamed myself, getting everything done in time was difficult for me so I thought I wasn’t a good worker. I really don’t... — read more

Do we still have to use them ?(Texas)
Does anyone know of anyone who has recieved unemployment from whole foods? I know of some been denied.
Thanks for the praise about stepping up thats really going to help your TMs pay the bills while you sit safely in your ivory tower. Your fake smile and and souless eyes always remind to put in as little effort as possible anytime I see your picture... — read more

I was told if you want to take off a month or more all you have to do is fill out the: "take a break form" and turn it into your tl. My tl told me recently that I have to wait until April to fill it out. What is the truth????
I’ve been here almost a year, and I want to know - will things get better? I feel like I’m being way overworked for what I’m being paid and the time frame for things to be done can sometimes seem absurd. The work environment while tolerable can be... — read more

When I first joined Whole Foods it wasn't just a job to me, I considered it a way of life - and I know so many other people did as well. Then over time things changed, priorities shifted, and what was a way of life became just a career, but it was... — read more
I started last month and I constantly hear people at my store talking about possible layoffs and worrying about more positions being cut. Is this a regular occurance here? I know I probably should have asked this before I accepted the job but it is... — read more
After several years spent in this company in which I invested a lot of effort and loyalty, I realized that it is no longer worth it. I wouldn’t want to influence anyone’s decision, but working in this place is really humiliating and it's one of the... — read more
Has there been any more talk about further position cuts?
you should just do the bare minimum until conditions improve. No point in working any harder than you need to for a company who doesn’t actually care about you or your wellbeing. Maybe at some point they understand that treating people will better... — read more
Sometimes I wonder if they even look at us as humans? My situation is that I do enough work for three people, for sure. I’m afraid to turn it down because I wouldn’t want to lose my job. When I first started working here a few years ago, I was also... — read more
We all know this is not the company it was when it started and is far removed from its original ideals some of us actually used to believe in. And it's obvious that working conditions have deteriorated over the years to the point that the majority of... — read more
Now I already have the experience of working in two WH stores and each has had its own clique formed by the groups of low performing workers guarding each other’s backs, nothing more. Compared to all the other problems in the company this one is less... — read more
Where is our bonus check?
Everyone I have known,that has been with WFM a long time, and has gotten pushed out says it starts with micromanaging. They are constantly monitoring what you're doing hoping to find something they can fire you for, but really they want you to get... — read more
What will be the next thing they'll cut to compensate for increasing the starting pay to $15 since it seems we're still paying for it? Bring us down to 2 minute breaks? Cut the few remaining benefits we have? What? It makes me so angry that Bezos... — read more
I really hate it. Every step of mine is monitored and I simply cannot work in such an atmosphere. I used to somehow ignore it, but now I can barely concentrate on work. It is still not clear to me why micromanagers do micromanage and how they do not... — read more
Just found out that very soon, team members will only be allowed 10 minute breaks instead of 15. I guess that extra five minutes is really eating up time for a team member to get so much more work done. I am sure this will inspire already disgruntled... — read more
I don’t know if they are even aware of how many unrealistic goals they put in front of us that rarely anyone can meet? The only excuse I could accept is that they are doing it unconsciously. Otherwise, it is the ultimate arrogance and squeezing of... — read more
Does anyone else think the implementation of the new ordering system has been a complete disaster? Our back room is full of product that we have no need for and it just keeps coming in. I've never seen inventory levels so bad in the back it's out of... — read more
How many TM's feel that Store Leadership isn't following Company and Local guidelines for controlling the spread of Covid in their store? Waiting for the Class Action when this is over!
I cannot understand why we still have never-out chips. We are on a mostly-automated inventory system and we have pm refill scans every single day. There is no reason to have never-out chips. Besides, when it comes to hitting the ~1% mark, everything... — read more
How long does an investigation last, Before someone is terminated ?
I have no will to work here at all. I can’t believe how things have changed in WF. It’s like it’s not the same company. I don't want to belittle anyone, but the colleagues who left were far more valuable than the ones I have now. Because people do... — read more
