My son worked there starting at age 16 part time and l later fulltime for 12 years. He was high levels in three different areas of the store. Cheese was his specialty and he was actually featured in the Denver newspaper a lot as a go to cheese expert. Then it gets sold and things went south in a hurry. He now is in a business and moving up in management. He is college educated and thought he would be at whole foods as a career but when they changed the employee knowledge based system and moved to more just having a worker be a cog in the machine, as most businesses treat their workers, he bailed. Whole foods lost a great employee.
