I need to download my W2 for 2016. I left in January 2017, but I need it now for legal purposes. Do you know where I can download that W2 now.
We don't have one yet and I'm wondering how this works. Does your store have an Amazon Locker? Is it inside or outside the store? If it's outside, do customers complain they can't get their stuff until you open the store?
I haven't been around long time (oh, well) but I already heard about possible job cuts in Austin.
What was thought to be a 'life-line' for WFM has failed miserably. That's the reason why financial results of the 365 concept was concealed for a long-time. Yet another failure and this may just be the beginning of more. Seeking Alpha WSJ: Whole... read more
I don’t know people in other regions but wondering what the rumors/thoughts/feelings are out there. Is change coming? Are people leaving their jobs or not applying for jobs? Don’t need to sarcastic response just looking for some good TM to TM... read more
I would think that all regions will have the same set-up/job positions in the future. Whole Foods has always allowed each region to operate fairly independently. I don't think that will continue much longer. I believe that all regions will operate... read more
So, now that it's out that customer payment information was hacked, what do you think the fallout will be for the stores involved? Or will there even be any fallout? In case you have't heard (small chance, I know):... read more

So in NC the demo specialists were given to Jan to find a new position....and it begins! Can you say lowered wages?
Now he's calling himself- Houdini!! Ran the company into the ground and had to sell or be bought and now he's Houdini? Wow- too much!! How many thousands of Lemmings followed him like he was a DemiGod- now he's convinced he is!
Now the wunderkluts got hacked!! Will it never end!!
I hear things, but I can't trust them. I feel things, but I've got scars. Do I unpack my baggage? Am I here to stay? Should I take a knee, or does my aging preclude me? What?!? Is there an Echo in here, or is that a banana in my ear?!? What would JM... read more

I'm a buyer and even I'll admit the end is coming. Best to look elsewhere. Whole foods gave a lot of us really bad buying skills but if you were willing and able should have learned some good things along the way. Use those skills, polish your resume... read more
They'll centralize buying to take cost out. Prob restructure stores similar to distribution centers. Handful of managers and tons of human and robotic drones pushing product. Amazon sells just fine. Their education is the consumer doing research. If... read more
Does anyone else have problem logging into myapps today? How about access to Kronos? This is so frustrating and happens way too often.
Disclosure: not an employee here, researching the topic and hoping to find some info here. Anyhow, the question is: How will Amazon's takeover of Whole Foods takeover affect employees?
Lol you don't make an acquisition of that size without spending millions on research and due diligence. Far greater minds than yours were involved in assessing the risks and benefits to this deal. They probably have a greater awareness of the state... read more
Be aware , over the next two years there is planned layoffs ! Good luck
The big change is going to come when Bezos realizes that he's the proud owner of a $14 billion nightmare. No rational chain tries to go national with a collection of far flung local and regional chains with separate logistical systems and ordering... read more
Just watched on CBS 12 Investigates @4pm EST, that AMZN is selling synthetic urine to cheat drug tests. According, to the report this is growing in popularity. AMZN has since downplayed this. Very, very interesting as speculation mounts of new WFM... read more

I've been with Whole Foods for 16 years. Recently I've been hearing rumors that Amazon might offer severance packages/Layoffs to the older, over 45 group of team members with lots of service hours. This seems to make business sense at least, older... read more
I left WFM before the buyout. Overall, how do you feel it is going?
Everythingis so quite at my store... Changes are definitely coming..it's just a matter of when. All team members should prepare for a change..whether it be good or bad. Ir's just reality. I don't see any good coming from this merger for the old... read more
We have a specialty atl in our store who talks down to people. We have repeatedly gone to our STL and he has not done anything about it. What can be done going forward? I would hate to go to my STL, TL or PBS in fear of retaliation-This is a problem... read more
Irma heading to Florida so what does Bezos do? Price gouges hurricane supplies on Amazon.com.

Tl job is safe , buyers and sups will be eliminated . Coordinators eliminated and combo teams ! Just sipping my coffee !
It's such an obvious gimmick. Because nothing has been repaired regarding cost structure, logistics, supply chain, technology, cross-regional compatibility or any other operational feature of a SANE business, the lowering of prices on certain items... read more

"Other seafood-related changes Johnson expects to see at Whole Foods include a greater focus on local products...and a decentralization of its seafood departments" What does that mean for GSP?
