Bake-Off - September 12, 2022
When I was initially hired it was for the Juice Bar. Since it was all inclusive with the Bakery team meant we got to move around. I learned coffee, cashiering, closing the bakery, opening the bakery, production then the Bake-Off. It was never boring and always something to do.

There was alot that happened at my store. Like dealing with sexual harrassment from a male manager who after 5 yrs finally got fired due to someone else reporting him and then numerous others following suit and telling their stories. It was just alot of politics that I didn’t care for at all. We just wanted to do our job and get the support we needed and wanted

Cook - Atlanta, GA - December 11, 2021
When Whole Foods changed the starting hourly wage to 15 an hour they did not make any adjustments for people who had already worked there for years. I worked at Whole Foods for 4 years and with the new starting wage my pay was only 15.25 per hour. I had to train new people, but was I getting paid only slightly more than them. This was part of Amazon owning Whole Foods. With Amazon we went from always having stocked aisles to constantly running out of products. The empty shelves were not a good look. They cut the regular staff in half and hired twice as many manager. With this decision to be understaffed everyone had to work a lot harder. When I started at the company everyone received profit sharing, by the time Amazon took over we lost that benefit.
