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
Topics regarding layoffs at Whole Foods Market Inc.
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
Hello. I currently work as a GM for a large restaurant chain and was approached to turn in my resume. I am not sure if I want to leave where I am at now. I was told that this is a great company to work at, the benefits are above average compared to... — read more

Whole Foods opened another Ideal Market? How is it doing?
My store plays favorites (it’s pretty darn obvious) and I have to go with the flow because there ARE worse things out there - like being unemployed. Sometimes I want to tell my manager and his favorites off but I refrain. At the end of the day I’ve... — read more
Anyone have info on how this is happening?
This might mean that Mackey’s last day with wholefoods is near. Which would mean a big change for wholefoods. Amazon bought wholefoods for its customers never for the business practice/management practice of wholefoods nor the leadership of... — read more

For the second time since March, I was sent come for 72 hrs for having a fever. I waited for 45 minutes for temperature to go down but it stayed at 101. When I got home, I used under tongue thermometer and tested at 97.7. I have lost a total of 1... — read more
Why hasn't Whole Foods brought back hazard pay for employees? Cases of covid are worse than ever. Our store has been making so much more money during the pandemic and Jeff Bozo is the richest man in the world. It makes no sense. We should demand our... — read more

Does anyone else here think that the company has been completely ruined after being bought by amazon?
Our store has taken a harder stance on the dress code. Banning even simple patterns. The one inconsistency has been that our leadership doesn’t keep uniform equipment on hand, ie: aprons, hats, etc. and they don’t plan to stock up on any of these... — read more

John Mackey on Bloomberg channel just said “I love 98% of what Amazon has done for our company “
Is it true?
No, it's not perfect. But it's a job and it's a decent job in a time when tens of millions of unemployed people would give anything to trade with you. Keep that in mind next time you want to complain about the 'evil' company that's putting food on... — read more
