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!

Whole Foods Market has the potential to be a fantastic employer, but I am afraid that structural changes that were made in order to attract Amazon as a buyer have destroyed a lot of that potential. The draconian 'point' system that WFM uses to punitively punish workers for being 7+ minutes late (regardless of externalities) weighs down company morale and makes employees live in constant fear of reprimand. Also, our new Order-to-Shelf (or OTS) inventory system is nonsensical and does not translate well to a foodservice-oriented environment. Management is mostly deaf to these issues and the workers that have upward mobility are generally those who have remained the quietest on these major issues. The health insurance program is also kind of a joke, with an almost $7,000 out of pocket maximum for workers who are averaging less than $24,000 annually post-tax.
It's a rather small store compared to other bigger supermarkets, but overall its a great place. The people there are friendly but professional. They have a high set of standards to meet but are willing to work with you on things. Hours are pretty flexible and pay and benefits naturally increase over time. It's easy to have Whole Foods as a part time job and get good benefits while you also have a full time position somewhere else. I recommend it!
