Andres Traslavina on Work Culture and Talent Acquisition Strategies at Whole Foods Market

Whole Foods Market Careers

My husband and I have always been loyal customers of Whole Food Market. We want to eat healthy and are great fans of locally sourced and organically produced foods.  For us Whole foods is not just a place to do shopping but it is our place to hangout every sunday, have breakfast, drink coffee and occasionally crash some networking events while having our food. We love their cream puffs which we never miss to eat every time we shop there. And on top of all this their staff, who are empowered to serve us the way we’d expect to be served, are a great bonus.


I had to go to Whole Foods Market Yesterday night:)
