Very good working enviornment. Flexible scheduling, team members get a 20% discount on items. Promotions are done with in the company so there is a lot of growth opportunity. Company really appreciates their team members and even have a team member appreciation week once a year where team members are given extra coupons, apparel, and a lunch is provided by company. Dress code is very easy and causal as well. Raises are given every 6 months/yearly. There are also team builds where you basically get paid to have fun and bond with your team at the location outside the store. They also allow you to sample any items you get curious about!

Overall, Whole Foods Market has been very good to me. I've been employed there since August 4, 2014, making it the longest I've ever stayed with an employer. Whole Foods has great benefits available and values, such as a dedication to employee satisfaction, customer service, and improving communities. I've built wonderful friendships, customer relationships, and memories here. As far as what I would like to see change, I find the demands and expectations that regional offices put on the store to be too strict and at times, unnecessary. It creates stress on store leaders which trickles down to regular team members feeling overwhelmed from trying to achieve very meticulous standards. I also believe we should be paid more given the high expectations.
The good: The store at which I work has a great culture: all of my fellow team members are serious about getting the job done; leadership encourages growth through constructive feedback; and, the hours are flexible. Leadership observes and acknowledges growth and hard work. Maturity and cordiality are fixed characteristics of the culture.

Improvements needed: Fairness about the distribution of tasks given to men and women, formal training for particular roles and positions, and more frequent feedback.
