(no subject) [Mar. 11th, 2009|03:44 pm]

While in college I had wanted to work for WFM or as my partner endearingly calls it Whole Paycheck.  I never got around to applying, but I have been to 209 different stores in three countries :)  I have a collection of pictures of me in front of each entrance including the Landmark Store before and after it moved.  It's kind of weird, but it's what I like to do...hahaha

Family finds $10,000 in box of crackers

The Salt Lake Tribune

December 29, 2008

IRVINE, Calif. » The box of crackers Debra Rogoff bought from the grocery store had some crackerjack in it -- an envelope stuffed with $10,000.

Yet the Irvine woman was more curious than ecstatic about her daughter's find. After all, who would leave money in such a place?

"We just thought, 'This is someone's money,'" she said. "We would never feel good about spending it."

Rather than go on a shopping spree, the family called police and was initially told the money could be part of a drug drop.

Police later heard from store managers at Whole Foods in Tustin that an elderly woman had come in a few days earlier, hysterical because she had mistakenly returned a box of crackers with her life savings inside. In a mix-up the store restocked the box rather than composting it.

The Lake Forest woman, whose identity was not released, had lost faith in her bank and decided the box would be a safer place for the money.

Luckily for her, the box of Annie's Sour Cream and Onion Cheddar Bunny crackers were bought by the Rogoffs, who discovered the crisp $100 bills in an unmarked white envelope on Oct. 10.

The Rogoffs never heard from the woman and didn't receive a reward, but Rogoff did return to Whole Foods a couple weeks later.

"I asked them if I could have another box of crackers," she said with a laugh. The store obliged.

I need to log into my Whole Foods benefits page (not the separate insurance company ones), but I can't remember the url--does anyone know what it is?

This is serendipitous....did not know this page existed, as I've been away from LJ for some time.

Although not much goes on here, it's nice to know it exists.

As hindsight is 20/20, I've recently returned to WFM.  I had found my niche, but didn't realize it, and I'm glad to be back.  I'll be part of the opening staff at a brand new store soon, which I'm pretty excited about.  Last year, I helped open a different store, and I regret leaving there....see....I (unfortunteately, especially since everyone was really cool) allowed someone to influence me to work for some other company....but like I said, it's good to be back....and here to stay.

summer beer fest at WFM in (just outside New Orleans) Louisiana [May. 20th, 2008|09:11 pm]

[mood |chipperchipper]


I am the beer specialist at the Veterans store, in Metairie, Louisiana, just outside of New Orleans. I planned a big taste-fair-type-party last saturday. We sampled out 20 different beers in departments all over the store. There was live music and the New Orleans Craft Mafia came out to sell some locally made arts and crafts.

fun was had by all.

thinking about working here... [Mar. 1st, 2008|02:35 am]

I know this community doesn't get too much traffic. But I'm on a community called poor_skills and many people on there have recommended working for WFM. I currently work for a grocery store chain. And I'm thinking about jumping ship because everyone is saying that they pay so well compared to other chains.

How long have you worked here?
How often do you get evaluated/meaning get a raise?
What was your starting pay/what do you make now?
I hear insurance is free for full-timers after 90 days, how much is it for your family?
Do you get bonuses?

Thanks for any info!
p.s. I live in South Florida and would be applying at the PBG store. If by some crazy chance anyone happens to work there I'd love to pick your brain. ;)
