What’s the next big thing happening?! I’ve heard rumblings of a vote happening today from all rps and that something will be happening in late June that will drive a lot of traffic (not prime discounts, something bigger)
No WFM on the list but build a bear is right up there!!
Our store meeting scheduled for Wednesday (5/29) has been canceled!?!?
Well everyone, it’s almost over. Now let’s see how our bosses in the Mid Atlantic region handle this. Let’s see how the ladies in the north east handle it. Just wait, all your jobs will be gone shortly!! I hope they all rot in hell. Your WFM will... read more
It’s going to be tilted “How to promote your friends and ruin the company”. The first thing amazon should do is give the regional and central office a good douching. Why would amazon keep people that caused the company to need to be sold?
You’re closing. As usual it’s a secret. Not making enough money which equates to smaller bonuses for the big wigs, and your new global rvp. They don’t like their bonus being touched. If it’s their bonus or your survival you lose every time. Sorry you... read more
We have not gotten it since early 2017.
Were the lines slowed down by people fumbling with the app? Did the elderly flip-phone folks get angry?
Please ask Whole Foods exactly what CIO has accomplished since coming in and being paid ridiculous amounts of money. Rewards? Full of glitches. Gone. Digital coupons? Worked sporadically, half the content was inaccurate. Gone. Data Monster? It’s a... read more
Have you noticed an increase of external new hires for leadership roles mainly ASTL’s and TL’s? That should tell ya everything . With this level of stress a lot of TL’s and ATL’ are leaving to different jobs or they’re firing them for not following... read more
I have it on very good authority that a RP has recently contacted a headhunter. Changes are coming people, get out in front of it so you’ll be prepared. Don’t be blindly lead to the slaughter by the people above you, they don’t care about you... read more
Amazon is going to roll in and these idiots are not going to know what hit them.
I thought this all had to do with ordering truck to shelf! It has taken on a life of its own mandating every move now in the stores. It is a toxic fungus out of control. Really people it's a grocery store. I now have to read e mails twice a day!?!... read more
Just got an email saying there is a mandatory meeting May 29th and it’s at 10:30 pm. Does anyone know any details? My STL isn’t giving any details.
I left after the better part of a decade, for all the reasons we have beaten to death on this site. I do feel better in a lot of ways, just by removing myself from a dysfunctional, toxic environment. But I'm here to tell all you disgruntled TMs that... read more
First of all, the program should be called Standard Operating Procedure. Order To Shelf is buyer terminology that has little do with signing off on a PM duties checklist. Second, the OTS script is monitored by store level management full of their own... read more
Sorry I'm not going to move any faster. I just can't.
What’s with all the Last Chance tags in the stores? I don’t work at WFM anymore but still shop there. It’s pretty obvious they are getting rid of LOTS of products. What gives?
Any idea or heads up on what's to come from the Monday morning store meeting on 5/14? All east coast stores at the same time?
Literally everything is wrong with our current systems and processes. We are using outdated software, we have a poor network infrastructure, and rely on excel macros where web apps should be used. The fact that we don't have self check out is... read more
As one of the SGA's that has been laid off and is just waiting until July 2nd for severance I find I GIVE ZERO F---S about this company anymore. I thought i could stay positive but 3 months is a long time to wait for the inevitable. My teams have... read more
Unions aren't good but they are better than not having a job and this current mess. Individual teams can unionize if need be and are treated as a union. OTS would have to be approved by a union.
I find it telling that regional OTS coordinators come in to do a pre cert walk and say things like " I really don't care when it came in. Just mark a date on it that seems like it's reasonable " Really! Why are we doing this? Surely something will... read more
Anybody finds it really sad that Whole Foods is becoming just like any other grocery store? I used to be proud to work here, it actually meant something. Maybe not to other people, but it did to me. Now everything is changing, and not for the better... read more
Store Support will print the tags Each team will take down, put up and audit their own tags Done deal.
New Jersey just past a law requiring all Companies in New Jersey, to pay their employees for sick days. About time.
Good to see Our boss spending money on rockets. I bet they are really good just like all of WF super awesome technology. I thought amazon was a tech savy company when will they fix the debacle that our computer systems are.
Is it true we are safe from layoffs until the year since the acquisition was finalized is up? Been talking to my manager the other day and he said that there has been no indication anything will happen before than. After that it's nearly certain that... read more
Many team members at this certain location are quitting due to team leaders being emotionally Abusive. These team leaders need training. They are very self centered, egotistical and super c---y people. They aren’t even leaders. Upon quitting, members... read more
Since Amazon has these great algorithms, I hope they use them to analyze how many people leave a particular store. It is expensive to hire a new team member. If you have a manager who makes everyone miserable, be it dept or store, It’s amazing when... read more
Regional lackies we'll be in my store this week. Any idea what it's about? Me thinks it's going to be a renovation/ homogenization. Smaller meat and seafood. Meat going to protect like the rest of the region. Bollocks! The end is near!
Any guesses to what that will be?
Does anyone else find it ridiculous we have PTO drives for sick TM while we are owned by the richest man on the plant. Low paid TM donate hours while this guy is getting a $23 million dollar renovation on his home.He makes $36000 an hour and could... read more
Our region still has Demo Specialists. I've heard some regions no longer have them. Is there a plan to eliminate them entirely?
Automation is the end goal some jobs can’t replaced by machines yet.WB and Grocery will be the first to take the hit I think. Almost all items are prepacked except for things offered in bulk.TM will still be needed to stock but buyers will probably... read more
The title pretty much explains it all. I was doing a cart run in the Whole Foods parking lot i worked at and the lady who was my manager clocked off of work and ratted me out to my main manager. How stupid. Whole Foods needs a better business model... read more
During the past two weeks Amazon shares have been distributed to team members level 5 and above. So now you apparently get nothing based off of your service hours. Happy Team Member Appreciation Week!
