Is it true that all of the recycling deposits are just for show and it is all thrown in the trash...not really recycles/composted?

Re: I'm a Whole Foods Market team leader, Ask me a question.
Really? Because gawker.com did a few articles about Whole Foods and many many employees wrote in saying they do exactly that. Also for a company that "cares" so much why do they not let anyone take home food at the end of the day, instead choosing to trash it all? Whole Foods is just a marketing ploy, sorry. Their food is great, but the whole Green! Community! stuff is BS in my opinion. I like Sprouts!

At my store we both Recycle/compost because if we don't we'll get nailed with a huge fine.

Also, team member's are given 25 cent stickers to put on expired items that they then take home (you have to spend 25 cents per item, it goes into a team member fund)

Do they favor blacks in hiring? I go in white areas and mainly see blacks working there. They also don't dominate the workforce in other stores in the area, so it isn't like no whites do that kind of work.

I don't believe the company has much say there, it's to the discretion of the hiring Team Leader...

 Quoting: Anonymous Cowherder


How about not including the words "things have changed"

The only thing that has changed with that statement is the sellout mentality by these companies that start out to help people and point them on the right path, to now "changing" for the corporate greed and while the activists are kicked to the curb with non-support of such major issues in our food supply.

Last night I reported an employee who I saw take a handful of candy from one of the bulk bins and walk away munching. Will my complaint be taken seriously, or is this accepted behavior, just not when customers are looking?
