I came from another grocery giant and have been with WFM for almost 2 years. One of my ASMs lacks communication skills and shows no critical thinking. He’d rather see us work hard than work smart (save time/money). I once told him if it gets the job... — read more
Saw a few things on here about STL/ASTL bonus program being eliminated? Any truth to that? I know back in 07 recession hourly increase for store leadership where suspended. Bonuses where unaffected at that time. Bonus program would be a huge blow to... — read more
anyone know if they will cut back on orders? we dont have the staff and all the new people they are hiring are already talking about quitting (at least we have been hiring a lot). With that being said, how the fk are some busy stores going to make it... — read more
I was made aware of some emails saying amazon will be changing the attendance policy of amazon shoppers... im wondering is our policy at WF going to change too? Thats basically the only reason i still work here lol
Is something in the air in SoCal? Its been really wierd lately because our store is struggling but no one seems to care, almost like they know something is coming soon. Is it just bad leadership or does someone know about any changes in the next... — read more
Are the moving packages still alright? Let's say moving from CO to CA?
I have endured their insolent behavior so far, but I do not want them yelling at me. It's already crossed the line. Of all the companies I have been in so far, I have never experienced a superior yelling at me. That is not normal. I immediately gave... — read more
Can WFM do anything to not constantly have the problem that we've run out of product? It is a daily topic of conversation in our store. In the beginning I thought that it can only happen a few times, but no, it's happening all the time.
Hello union guy. Are you still here? Is it true that 51% of a team can become unionized? So if 2 astls vote yes on union would the whole store become a union? Asking for a friend. A lot of astls are really really really tired of working 45+... — read more
so i check in here with some regularity and noticed a post titled "hahahahah" the other day...it only had a few responses but now its gone??? is there a censorship program here on this site ?? i also wonder how often amazon monitors this... — read more
Who else has had it with this absolutely ridiculous new venture? Just another class act program by WFM to potentially save a buck. Such a shining achievement of a program that works so well and makes so much sense at a store level. not to mention... — read more
Peace Out John Many peeps called it. He’s on his way out
This would be my first holiday season here, but based on what I was told by people who have been at WFM for a long time, it's something I really don't want to experience. I can already imagine what a debacle it will be come this year's holidays. I... — read more
It looks like the Culture Compss results are starting to roll back to a store level. Any guesses as to what tone-deaf responses are in store for us this year? I am sure 95% of the TM responses were directed only at global- demanding higher wages... — read more
At WFM, I had a lot of colleagues who were completely dissatisfied, but still didn’t do anything to leave. I understood to some extent because people think that nowhere is the grass much greener. And, in fact, it is. I haven’t made a drastic change... — read more
There iS 1 EL that comeS to stores & all he doeS is points wat things are wrong with the store. My poor astl who works his bu-t off got reprimended for not being on top of few things like proper signage. The other astl who doesn’t do anything but... — read more
Everything that's happening here, unfortunately, does not seem to be happening for the benefit of employees. I wish it wasn't like that, but I think the situation is become more and more difficult for the employees here. I can't even imagine what the... — read more
Let’s discuss which positions you see being eliminated. If you have inside knowledge, please share.
All my former colleagues who have left here say they are earning much more now. I only know one person who now has a lower pay, but that person has both an easier and less stressful job now. I wonder if there is any reason, other than greed, why... — read more
News breaks today that as an effort to "recognize our incredible work" WFM team members will receive additional one-time bonus of $2 to $3 per hour worked between 10/4/21 and 1/2/22. Hate to break it to you, but this is not a gift. This is a payoff... — read more
Has anyone won yet? Last week it was: $100,000.00. This week cars.My leadership gives me the run a round when I ask.
Today I set a personal record for the number of applications sent out because the sooner I leave, the better. I hope you are sending A LOT of applications too? Rumors of layoffs and position consolidation indicate that nothing good can be expected... — read more
On Innerview 9/10/2021 It Claims he's going to retire on: 1/2/2022 We can just quess what that retirement package is going to look like.
More like Amazon recouping that $2 an hour COVID raise they apparently only loaned us last year. Whether it be through understaffing or hour restrictions, this is clearly a manufactured attempt to make that money back. Absolutely criminal.
The problems most of us face are just piling up. At least that's my impression. More and more is expected of employees, who are under increasing pressure and stress. And what is being resolved??? As far as I can tell nothing is improving? That is why... — read more
I think we need another clipboard. This one will track the mental health issues brought about by Store Process, poor staffing, and bad leadership. Make sure to sign off when you've had your daily anxiety attack. Otherwise, you'll get a write up.
ADVICE: Never allow yourself to get into a situation to experience a burnout here and endanger your health. You will not achieve anything except that you will eventually leave, and this company will replace you with another employee because we are... — read more
Whole foods will be in a hurt of trouble this holiday season I hate to see the team members toughing it out hoping it turns around since they have way too many service hours since wfm and amazon rather loose long timers with experience so they can... — read more
Our EC has already said no Overtime! I just had to take a 50 minute lunch so I don't hit overtime!
What would happen if a store successfully unionized? Has it ever happened and, if so, what was the reaction from the higher-ups?
Do your 40 hours and don't do OT even though they are offering double time. If nobody gets on board it will put pressure on them to make real changes. They still don't appreciate you they are just nervous going into the holidays.
I would like to know what do you think this year's holiday season at Whole Foods Market will look like? Can people hope for anything good? I see that some here are already predicting that the company will be in big trouble. I still have a bit of... — read more
WFM\Amazon you owe them nothing and they don't appreciate you whatsoever. Staffing is so thin and they are doing nothing to bring people back to work. They can afford to pay us all more and make the company a more pleasant place to work.
I'm just wondering how many people have been hired here lately. Is it true that the response to the open positions is terribly small? I wouldn’t be surprised if an embarrassingly small number of people apply. What if this continues into the... — read more
WFM already knows where the problems are they just choose to ignore them. Your feedback means nothing its just a ruse to pretend like they care about issues. Your silence would cause more concern than anything you could ever write on this sham... — read more
We are not understaffed, we are more than understaffed. Yesterday, for the first time ever, I worked only the bare minimum because it no longer makes sense to make an effort in this company that is not even trying to get back on track. Admittedly... — read more
SSS consolidation and moving to ADMIN in FL. Any word what will be next with this change?
Unfortunately, my situation is such that I don't have many options and I will most likely stay in retail for a while. I don’t have a broad skillset so that I could get picky. Most of all I wish I could get out of retail because I don’t believe it’s... — read more
So how is the Ideal Market doing in Denver? I heard the CEO liked it but you never know...
So i made the mistake of working here until recently and i just want to point out a few things about this company that i think are an absolute joke, let me know what you guys think: 1- If anyone told me this company ever made money i wouldn't... — read more
