I'm a little nostalgic, although I know that I shouldn't be dwelling on the past too much, but look for a new job more intensively. Golden years will not return.
I asked our STSS about our holiday tables and he laughed at me.
What are your thoughts on Siracha after working it almost two months?
There are some good and bad things about this program. Of course WFM always implements a new program without working out the bugs first. They have people sitting in an office that come up with this stuff and never talk to TM's who actually do the... — read more
Ideal Market Denver
So are Cherry Creek and Union Station still paying for this store to stay open? Such a waste.
I asked our STSS if she is sad for being laid off. She said she would sign today if she could then she laughed and walked away. That was very rude of her and I had a tech question. lol. Just kidding, I don't blame her one bit. Take that money and... — read more
Morale is at an all time low
This company nowadays only motivates me to look for new opportunities out there every day… They used to pay more attention to employee motivation and morale in general. But now, it's like they don't even care about it in the slightest?
Finally getting out
I've officially put in my notice. All these changes and upcoming changes do not look at all promising. I wish everyone the best and encourage you all to start looking for a new job NOW. It's only going to get worse from here. That place isn't for... — read more
How many total are being let go? Why is Culture Champion being pushed on me when I work at the regional office?
The marketing team members in the field were let go for at least the fourth time in the last seven years. Although everyone was supposed to be "global" in the last change, this was never really the case. Those teams were kept at arm's length tasked... — read more
So how many are really getting laid off. My ASTL told me not to email anyone at regional as they are probably gone already.
Let's be real! Amazon regrets buying Whole Foods! In reality Whole Foods is a small player in the grocery world and still does not compete with Kroger and Walmart!
Workday is revealling
Ever look at the organizational trees in workday and click on the higher-ups to see their past experience. Almost no one in positions of power at WFM had any sort of education or business experience whatsoever. Sure some have worked in multiple wfm... — read more
STSS given five months!
They are giving five months till they are gone. They have to make sure their stores are ready to hand over to a vendor who is not hired up. They will have more tasks in the next few months than the last two years.
I doubt this will be a good change
My first thought when I read the internal memo indicating that the company aims to simplify operations and restructure some of its corporate teams was that unfortunately this is just one more in a series of changes for the worse. Your thoughts?
It was 9…. Now its 6
It’s about time they get rid of some fat from top. Wats next? Store team leaders? Team combination? We all knew this was coming so all ELs need to reapply. Hopefully the useless ones don’t continue.
Whats going on with the global realignment?
Heard some chatter this morning but nothing more than that. What changing?
Reduction in force on Global team announced
I am not sure of all the details, but a RIF has been announced for Global.
No Team Member Discount for upcoming Body Care Sale!
Just heard from a coworker that the Body Care sale we all wait for so we can buy our creams, soaps etc will no longer be eligible for our Team Member Discount. I think the sale starts next cycle. Way to go Whole Foods on Team Happiness. Cut our hours... — read more
Nobody wants to work
I'm tired of having to do several jobs every single day. If you're not going to show up for work, then quit! Or if you are going to show up and spend the entire day hiding somewhere while playing on your phone, you need to be fired! I'm getting paid... — read more
I totally agree with those who think that there is a long way to full automation in this company. Why do some think it will happen so soon?

Welcome to KMart !
After saracha is finished driving away customers and employees we will be down for count and going out , just like KMart . Too big to fail doesn’t apply here .
Leave now if you don't want to be laid off
Or even worse, fired. Our parent company is looking for any and all ways to cut costs. We are among the easiest ones to get rid of without too many costs attached to it. Something tells me it's just a matter of time before 90 percent of us are... — read more
Any truth to this?
It's to operate lean with as little people as possible. Most cuts will be at leads level so less managers and supervisors to manage across various groups. Trim out the lazy managers and leads. Goal is to remove dead weight who comes in whenever it... — read more
Why I like March Madness...
The only sports I will watch. WFM should take notes: It's about competition. It's about performing and working together. It's about putting the best team together to win. With no excuse. What you don't see is. Backstabbing. Manipulation. Poor... — read more
Let’s all share our merit pay raise and bonus amounts!
In the spirit of transparency, please share your raise % and your bonus total.
is ASKTMS replacing TMS Generalist's?
Seems like AskTMS does everything that a TMS Generalist does. Does that mean they are getting rid of those positions down the road?
Does this mean there will be pay cuts or job cuts ? Anyone know ?
So we have meetings and people from regional all they do is read power point presentations already made by global. So whats the point of all these regional sfas or whatever they are calle now. You know, we TMs can read. What a waste of meetings... — read more
Should we worry about store closings?
With all the layoffs going around, is there any chance that some stores will be put on the chopping block? I usually wouldn't worry since my location is doing well if not great, but all the things that have been happening in the last few months have... — read more
Whole Foods is sick of high prices, too — so it's pulling the Walmart trick of squeezing suppliers to bring prices down
Whole Foods is reportedly asking suppliers to help the chain lower grocery prices. The Amazon-owned grocer wants to reduce prices as inflation eases, the Wall Street Journal reported. Pressuring supplies to keep prices low is common among... — read more
Are WFM tech roles safe during these massive tech layoffs happening right now? Both global and in store roles?
Is the grass much greener with competitors?
I don't know if our managers purposely try to make us feel miserable, but that's how it seems to me sometimes. Instead of trying to get the best out of people, my manager is an expert at how to demotivate and drive away people who then go to... — read more
My STL just told me our store will no longer have e-comm leadership. They aren’t laying us off but they want to take my title and money away.
Get rid of the useless positions in store and in global.
I know this might be a stupid question but I'd rather ask and know than not ask and possibly stress over something for no good reason. Are we going to be included in the announced Amazon layoffs? With 18,000 people slated to be let go, what are the... — read more
