So financials were in the crapper again last period. When is Amazon going to wake up and start purging the regional leadership that’s causing bad morale which is responsible for the general lack of caring? There need to be changes in August. Start... read more
Another regional person gone this week in SP. Sadly it's not the top leadership, namely either the RP, RVPs or any of the 12 ECs... When is Amazon going to check under the hood of 'regional leadership" and pull the plug?? Also, sounds like a cap on... read more

Once again people, you aren't Whole Foods. You are Amazon! Bezo bought WFM because he wanted organics and WFM is known for its organic foods and already set up with suppliers, but Bezo wants all the crappy food that people go to other stores to buy... read more
Does anyone have any insight to why WFM pulled the rug out from Atlanta Fresh last fall, eventually driving them out of business? The 7 year contract had only been in effect for 14 months. I saw a press quote where WFM said something about sales not... read more

Our store has really focused on getting our whole planet numbers up and we are haveing an amazing year for us. We are near some top stores for the first time and I am amazed at the lack of recognition we have got? Is this normal where we work hard... read more
I wonder what Bezos had to say at the WFM annual tribe meeting in Arizona. People look up to him like he’s a god.
I was told that whole foods is the place “chefs” go to retire. After 4 months in Prep Foods I slowly realized, it’s where chefs who couldn’t hack it in the industry go to pretend to be big shots, and brag about how they were total bad ases in the... read more
Things have been awfully quiet around here in regards of layoffs, I'm starting to worry this is a major case of calm before the storm. Do we know if there is anything brewing in near future or am I just being paranoid for no good reason (wouldn't be... read more

What do these lazy sacks do all day? Why does no one in store leadership help anyone with anything? Why does this position exist?
Where are the second round of raises we were promised over a year ago for being forced into taking on combo teams? Just another broken promise?
Why are post and comments being deleted?
What a bunch of crap, checklists, walks , scorecards , blah blah blah. We need OTS for senior management, and time those breaks. And where's our bonuses ?
Out of curiosity what in the hell do the store scanners do (the ones that do all the pricing) It seems like ours just sits around all day.
How many people take a full 30, minute break during inventory? I highly doubt most TM's take a full 30 during inventory.
It's great to be in NA. Things are going so well 8 new positions were recently announced for the regional office. Really excited what the new ChefTec team member will bring to the table. Go NA!
Everyone believing the media hype that Amazon is causing retail's demise when Amazon only accounts for around 4% of total retail, and now they're even laying people off... read more
Does Amazon realize how bad WFM is run with OTS?
