Next you send in your Amazon cronies to take pictures, don't lie to our faces that you are taking pictures of the lockers while you take 500 millioon pictures of the loading docks, backroom, bakery, PDFS and one picture of the lockers, unplug your... read more
From a bogus job fair hiring 6000 to a hiring freeze in less than 30 days, what a freaking publicity stunt that was.....We can’t even make labor on a severely understaffed team. I cringe when I walk by the 2 checkout lanes during lunch rush and the... read more

Lmr ppfd atls are a joke they don't even care, oh and dont get me started on how they will put anyone in a supervisor position that has a no call no show and no prior experience in leadership yet he's been told its a done deal with less than 6 months... read more
Since the layoffs in 2015, they have been stretching some team members to their very limits while firing others to save on labor. One person can't do the jobs of five people well. This is what annoys me the most, and it keeps happening. People get... read more
Ruh roh...https://storebrands.com/what-whole-foods-might-become Amazon didn’t waste any time changing up Whole Foods Market after officially acquiring the organic and natural foods retailer on Aug. 28 and lowering prices on several items, including... read more
Our Regional Prez got replaced six months ago with the Florida legend (sarcasm). Our Regional Grocery Team lost big players too. Folks in Global are being turned away from internal postings in search of outside blood. Anyone in doubt should wake up... read more
So stores are looking shoddy, quality taking a dive and prices haven't actually gone down- most categories are up. Well Amazon- guess you should have done some homework instead of being sold the merger of the millennium idea! This is where WFM was... read more
Got an email from John Mackey about changes coming in Marketing. Way to go John! For bringing the holiday cheer to everyone right before the holidays! How are you going to reenergize the Team Member experience? Personally, removing crappy team... read more
I'm considering changing jobs and applying for the new Whole Foods Market opening in January in Exton, but reading all the posts here and on Glassdoor has me reconsidering that idea. Is the situation really that bad at Whole Foods? Should I stay... read more
Marketing and sign making regional people have been extremely quiet. They put a freeze on spending and we were told to cancel our events to cut costs. There is no talk of January or planning for January. Does anyone know if these jobs will even... read more
Found out today that there is an emergency meeting tomorrow. They will do to regional what they did to demo and concierge. The new full time status is 36 hours. No more. This is region wide and tms will have no say in this. The release of MSI, GA... read more
Rumor has it Regional folks are scrambling to get a Global position. Do we really need 13 or 14 Presidents? 13 Executive “this & that” unnecessary positions? 13 Coordinators (for each team), 13 Regional Buyers (For each team) and the whole lot? It’s... read more
Amazon gets desperate and gives away $500 worth of designer products for customer feedback. All of this is a part of an aggressive marketing strategy. People in United States will be shocked to hear that Amazon is running a special customer... read more
I've been with WFM for over ten years. The past two months I keep hoping they will lay me off. I can find a better job. I'm stuck until they kick me out. I get disappointed every time I see nothing new posted here about layoffs.
"One of the core values at Whole Foods Market is “team member happiness." https://www.collegerecruiter.com/blog/2017/11/17/workplace-culture-of-happiness-and-leadership-retains-entry-level/
Frankly, compared to many others, we didn't really do that badly throughout the year. Now, what's about to happen once Amazon finally figures out what it wants to do with us in the long run is another story... read more
If you are SSS & GA, please start looking for another position now. You are next. With Demo and Concierge eliminated they are going to get any available positions and you are going to be stuck with nothing. Don’t wait to see if I am telling the truth... read more
Ecowatch.com-Turkeys sold at whole foods test positive for FDA prohibited drugs.

Amazon Prepares to Launch Its Physical Store With No Cashiers - FORTUNE https://apple.news/Ap9ulJUqXT6yxb2JYqkRRaw
Holy crap!! Our store has 20+ new hires....and signage in front of the store that says we are hiring! I'm a long-timer and I'm starting to think my time is coming to an end. Why else would Amazon hire so many people?? We'll see but I'm sure after... read more
Does anyone know if they’ll be eliminating the Electric Cart Wrangler position in the Southwest Region. I heard it was eliminated in the other regions, but it’s unclear what the fate is here in Houston. I would cry if there was nobody specialized to... read more
The same day they dropped the axe on Demo, they dropped it on concierge. If the store doesn’t have an unrealistically high amount of sales in personal shopping, no more concierge. Everyone’s knows Instant Cart and Amazon Fresh has replaced personal... read more
Now that the rumor is out for demo, I'm wondering if Local Forager is next.
They dropped the bomb on SW Demo yesterday. They have until January 15 to find a position or they are unemployed. Get ready to welcome third party drones that know nothing about our stores or products. The demo specialist in our store is sick to her... read more
Hey all, ex-SGA here. Just curious with how things have been with the artists and all. I was recently in the new Bryant Park store and saw there was a whole ONE chalk illustration. Any hope for the job continuing as at least a graphic design... read more
How many candidates vs how many hires? Did anyone get hired on the spot? Did any stores just go through the motions for the new mother ship?
What’s with the hairbrained national hiring day. How are all sores hiring if many missed their labor budgets last period? Sounds like a PR sham...
Whose brilliant idea was this? The store I am in doesn’t need to hire and the store itself is not making labor. All TLs have to be in that all day wasting labor. Amazon must be impressed.
