Regardless of your official job title, you must deliver the highest level of customer experience period! It also taught me the importance of accurate and fast cash/card handling skills to ensure that was no line, or a very very low wait time!

I love food. I get a lot of joy interacting with customers and team members. And we are all brought together by one thing: food.

3. What did you dislike about working at Whole Foods

Its not that I "Dislike" working at Whole Foods, but I will say is Whole Foods I feel is behind technology when you compare other retailers. For example, Whole Deal coupons should go digital. Cutting coupons in 2014 is weird.
