Pros

Lots of room for advacement. Great Benefits even at part time. The company gives you a sense of pride and satisfaction. Fast growing corporation.

Cons

The way the promotions and compensation can be very political. Almost everyone must start at the bottom and work up from there. A college degree doesn't have any value.

Advice to Management

College Management Program.

    Pros

    Decent wages, good health benefits, employee discount, flexible schedule, pleasant work environment, diverse people and backgrounds

    Cons

    I haven't ever experienced many. No company is ever perfect- there will always be some management choices you might not agree with where ever you work, but IME, Whole Foods does much better than most businesses for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    I've always found it easy to advance here, if an employee wants to do so. Keep promoting from within and providing opportunities to rise in the company, especially for those of us who lack college degrees.

    Pros

    Great pay for younger people looking to make extra money

    Cons

    Very hierarchal and micro managed. Most of the upper management is uneducated and unqualified... guess thats the downside to working with a hippies. Upper management is very protective of their positions because they know that they could never get paid their salaries else where.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring some smarter people! And stick to your core values, the connection between regional and store level is degrading and i'm starting to see more and more low quality foods come in.
