Apparently not everyone who works at the super-trendy Whole Foods is as happy as they appear. In fact, one former employee of a store in Toronto just turned in his resignation with an epic 2,300+ word email detailing his every complaint with the chain.
He seems to think that the company did not exactly live up to proposed core values. In the email he says,
“I was hired about five or six years ago. I appreciated and respected what the company said its philosophies were at that time. However, it didn’t take long to realize what complete and utter bulls— they are.”
He also goes on to point out flaws of specific co-workers and managers and calls them out by name (though the names were redacted from the email.) By the end he has some advice for his fellow Whole Foodees:
“You work at a grocery store. Go ahead and relax. Also, Whole Foods will try to make you feel like they are doing you a huge favor by employing you. Don’t fall for the guilt trips. Call in sick if you need to, etc. There are laws in place to stop them from taking advantage of you.”
