Topics regarding layoffs at Whole Foods Market Inc.

It's still a good job

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 

The layoffs are inevitable

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

Dress Code

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 

No respect

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 

Culture compass response

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 

Union Buzz

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!!

Grace period "abuse".

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 

Prime shoppers

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 

Bone us!

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.

points freeze

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 

Discovery medical credit card

Cleaning house?

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 

Working us to the bone!

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 

Amazon vp quits Smart man. Whole foods will soon follow to avoid personal lawsuits. Too much of a single diversity and preffrencrbis too many problems at work.
