John Mackey on Bloomberg channel just said “I love 98% of what Amazon has done for our company “
Topics regarding layoffs at Whole Foods Market Inc.
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
It’s just a matter of when and in what order. Mackey said, according to Bloomberg. “They’re making investments in technology for Whole Foods that I think will be transformative. And they’ve been respectful of our culture; they haven’t tried to just... — read more
I can't blame Amazon for it all, things were going downhill even before then. But these last three years have solidified everything that was wrong with this place and amplified it so much that Whole Foods is now unrecognizable to me. Remember when... — read more
What was that call about?
I wonder who the myopic hall monitor is who thought, in the middle of a period of the lowest morale any of us have ever seen, that a new dress code would be a good idea. We're hemorrhaging team members, and these id–ts are concerned about someone's... — read more
Anyone have any info about a seasonal layoff? She haa 90 days of work and then will be fired.
I was wondering if any other TMs feel as if they aren’t being given the respect they deserve? I know some feel it has to be earned and while I totally agree - it works both ways. I believe how you treat your employees determines how well your store... — read more
Was anyone satisfied with the email that was sent out it seemed like the response was written before the results of the survey even went in. Covid response was pathetic just glossed over and made it about customer experience and not about TM safety... — read more
The whole foods in my area has two cashiers on duty and huge lines. It's been like this for a couple months. Is this typical?
Will there be any point in keeping Whole Foods alive once Amazon opens it's Fresh and Go stores throughout the country? If they carry the 365 Brand, as well as Organic offerings and conventional foods such as Kellogs and Coke, why would anyone... — read more
Hearing Unions are active in NYC, Brooklyn and the Island. Memberships are down and COVID hurt their membership dues. Perfect timing to move in with COVID bonus gone and staffing issues in most stores. That would be a big win for the Unions!!
At my store they recently implemented a new rule that the 7 minute grace period can only be used once a week. Anything after that will result in a tm receiving a quarter point for attendance, even if it is 1 minute past your scheduled start time... — read more
Do you think we will see an improvement from previous years because of the pandemic? JM says he has so much love and gratitude for the work we do in the stores.
Anyone else’s store hiring tons of shoppers but no Team members for the departments? My store gets destroyed by Prime and not enough help to fill up the aisles. When will someone recognize that we need a balance. So sick of hearing the word headcount... — read more
Thanks for the bonus that was paid for by hiring freezes and dunking on TM morale. Also, good call, giving $1000, to store leadership. They definitely deserve it more than workers on the floor.
Yeah is next month. Unfortunately nothing will change.
At what point is too many cases for one store?
What's the use of me putting a high percentage of my check into this program if my contributions aren't matched by the employer.
In an incredible show of ugliness whole foods corporate has decided to freeze points starting in january so those 3 months that we as TM worked putting our lives at risk as well as our loved ones were for nothing!! No one went down to zero as is... — read more
Man, WFM sure picked a bad year to eliminate PT20 status and pull health insurance out from under thousands of team members. I wonder if they'll reconsider going into 2021, considering that Covid isn't going anywhere and we're likely to see an... — read more
Kcm has it first team member who has a confirmed COVID 19 ,he/she is from the front end ,a professional company will deep clean the store .
We are losing TMs left and right and we are left alone to suffer the consequences and pick up the slack. Don’t understand why they are not hiring?!
$250 for PT $500 for FT I miss gainsharing!!!!
Is any one else having to jump through hoops to convince discovery that our medical appointments & visits are a valid expense. I have to prove every expenditure on my own time with my own computer. Like workday the employee is doing all the work
So what happened to the STL at The Woodlands? I see that position is posted again?
Why was our hazard pay taken away??? We are still wearing masks and having our temperatures taken. This isn't right. Something must be done!
One of our astl’s was asked to step out while store leadership cleaned house so she wouldn’t be involved. Guess what? You involved too many people so for them to shut up 100% ? Not realistic. Never bring a friend of a friend. Stl will over look... — read more
I thought I knew my coworkers pretty well, but this virus has revealed something. The TMs that refuse to wear a mask until we are open, or wear it all day half-assed under their noses and chins do not care about others. They complain that the masks... — read more
My store in the MW region has two confirmed cases and ten people in quarantine. The unlimited call-puts and $2 an hour raise ends May 17. All employees must return just as the virus starts to take hold at my store. We found out through the automated... — read more
What is the directive from regional or global? We got direction from regional to move the bulk of team members to the am and have a skeleton crew at night. Seems Store leaders are unaware or they play dumb. Since this whole covid-19 started there... — read more
Whole foods really tries hard to discredit any team member that calls them out during covid-19. Build your case with pictures,emails,statements,recorded messages and even text messages but it will be over looked but for how long and in what... — read more
https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/05/04/tech/amazon-vp-tim-bray-quits/index.html. Smart man. Whole foods will soon follow to avoid personal lawsuits. Too much of a single diversity and preffrencrbis too many problems at work.
Call off the witch hunt or else all atl’s,sl’s,tl’s,astl’s,stl’s,ec’s,vp’s and presidents exposed and how they failed to protect us by name ,store ,regional or global under this pandemic along with other criminal issues by cover up at stores and... — read more
Are you guys allowed to make your own food in the kitchen and pay for it?
Atl’s are not part of the bargaining chips ! They are spreading union support at store levels. How to find out look at their call out ratio!
