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?
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
Hope all yous guys are ready for a fun month ;)
Great investment, huh? https://www.theinformation.com/articles/zombie-amazon-grocery-stores-pile-up-as-openings-grind-to-a-halt
Has anyone heard whether there will be layoffs at Global?
I’d like a different take…over n over again on this site we here from team members from the early 2000’s that dread this company now and dream of the ole days…are there really no folks out there who have signed on after the Amazon takeover who think... — read more
Cut part timers down to 4 hours a week. The regional direction is just to eliminate entire shifts before even communicating to the TM’s. Meanwhile stores run with 3-4 astls that don’t do anything whatsoever but walk around with their coffee and Yerba... — read more
Do you think there may be small/medium/large Whole Foods layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
There is some speculation that there could be some cuts after the holidays. Maybe someone has more insights?
How's the shoplifting in your store? Ours is a rampant mix of homeless that live in a park two blocks away and some organized rings taking $500-$1,000 a pop with frozen meat/seafood, caviar, li---r, coffees. We've had more than one dr-g OD in the... — read more
So Tables Ready crashed! Haha!
Holiday takes are a joke this year. Nothing works and printers keep falling offline. Not that there is anyone to man them anyway.!
I was just laid off. Completely blindsided after 15 years of excellent JDs and building my career here. Workload has been so heavy that it never even occurred to to me that they would eliminate the position. Found something with a better salary... — read more
Neighbors filed into Whole Foods for the store's final hours as security escorted patrons off the premises. "They gave up on this community a long time ago," one neighbor... — read more
Funny that nobody mentioned wages when they responded to the survey. The E team didn't say anything about it in the posting on innnerview.
Is there any reason for working hard in a company that has proven countless times that it doesn't value hard work at all? I don't think there is, and I am amazed by those who still give their best so that those at the top could enjoy themselves.
The other shoe just dropped. Just heard all regional travel is now cancelled and needs approval across the country as a cost saving measure. In my region for the coordinators to go to a store means booking a flight and hotel. If they aren't coming to... — read more
Despite everything, some people still do the best they can while the company squeezes them and takes advantage of the fact that they can't find a better job. Some think that their case hard work will be valued and then they are disappointed when... — read more
Just read that Amazon is raising wages for warehouse employees. Has anyone heard of this happening for store employees?
Is there another store closing? In Chicago? Any more rumors of other locations or flipping over WFM to Amazon Fresh? That has to be coming soon.
Is cashing out of PTO possible? How about cash for family emergency situations? Please let me know.
Is anyone going to buy any? It seems like ever since we were bought by Amazon, supplements at wfm have gotten more expensive while Amazon is a bit cheaper.
How long you think till this position is gone? With the SSS being the store point person and the STSS just works tickets assigned to them. I say within two years they are gone.
I know it isn’t just Amazon/Whole Foods, but it affects all customer service jobs. For those of you that have been around for more than a couple of years, (meaning 10 years or more) how bad is it getting at your store? Do you just FEEL how much... — read more
My TL told me I am the point person for tech support now at my store? We haven't even had our monthly call because it keeps getting postponed.
For years John you let mid mngemnt at Whole Foods toil under heavy stress…always under threat of demotion or termination…team leaders working off the clock and suffering for wfm…and these very conscientious workers were often driven into the rocks... — read more
John Mackey said about GenZ "Its also the Kids these days. They don't seem like they want to work" Are we talking about all of the young kids at WF who seem to be the majority of the TM who created the sales and profit so you "John" could retire with... — read more
Culture compass is coming don't bother responding nobody cares about what you have to say. Let's make this year the lowest participation rate so global can't brag about how many people responded. Your opinion means nothing to them and your response... — read more
Seems all the SSI's have be reduced back down to SSS....
Who was the worst STL you worked for? The worst in terms of job performance or overall competence.
Is this unique to the SP or do all STLs work 6 hours while expecting their ASTLs and shifties to work 9+? They hired a talentless clown that has a long commute and he seems to reduce his drive time from his shifts.
Who else is suspicious of the new my schedule app? I know that this is how Amazon shoppers were being scheduled allowing them to pick/drop their own shifts. I'm nervous about it because that is also how Amazon got rid of a lot of the shoppers they... — read more
It is funny the John Mackey tour has already started. He will be visiting my store next week and the STL is freaking out. There are 4 ASTL's at this location and do you think one of them could lift a finger to help prepare for this visit. NOT! ... — read more
How many years have you been working for WHM? Do you still enjoy working here?
Hi All, is this true? Also, if there are closing it are they offering relo options to workers?
What ASTL got the boot or promotion at Lamar?
