Terrible management, high turnover
Cashier/Maintenance (Ancien employé) – Toronto, ON – 5 juin 2019
The management at this company is not one that you would want to work for. There is flagrant sexism and favoritism among a slew of other problems.
Management will openly select favorites and as such, will give them easier tasks during shifts, talk to them in a more respectful manner, and allow small perks such as more leniency in time frames involving tasks. Generally if you are not on a manager or team leader's 'good' list? You're basically finished and can expect to be treated as garbage during your time at the company.
When it comes to the division of labor, if you are a male, prepare to be used for the jobs that no one else wants to do. Immediately if there is a garbage can overflowing or someone spilled a drink on the floor; expect to be called if you're a male. Female employees (at least at my location) are never made to perform maintenance tasks despite there being over triple of them in number when put in comparison to male employees. This issue stems to another involving the labor involved in your job description.
If you sign up as a front of house worker in customer service or cashier services, be prepared to do merchandising and garbage clean up for other departments. The list continues on.
Overall, join for the half decent pay check but be prepared to be worked to the bone even outside of your job description as well as a toxic work environment with managers who will slander you whenever given half the chance. Remember that if you're applying to Whole Foods Market, be young, have no conscience, and be a female.
