‘Crying at work is becoming normal’: Whole Foods employees revolt after Amazon imposes ‘scorecard’ system

Employees at Whole Foods are getting fed up with a new Amazon-imposed inventory system that they say is making their lives miserable.

Whole Foods employees talked with Business Insider recently about the changes in the inventory system and the way they’re evaluated in managing it. Specifically, employees say morale is getting hammered by a draconian “scorecard” system that penalizes employees for even the slightest of infractions in how the store is managed.

Essentially, the score card system requires employees to satisfactorily complete 90 percent of items on a checklist that store managers use to evaluate performance. Any scores below 90 percent are considered failures, and this can result in employee firings.

What’s more, store managers are expected to regularly pelt their employees with pop quizzes that include information about “their departments’ sales goals, top-selling items, previous week’s sales, and other information,” Business Insider reports.

“Every item in our department has a designated spot that is labeled or marked,” Colorado Whole Foods worker tells the publication. “If that item is even an inch outside of its designated spot… we receive negative marks.”

Another Whole Foods supervisor, meanwhile, says that they dread coming to work for fear that someone from the corporate office will be there to brutally evaluate their team’s work.

“I wake up in the middle of the night from nightmares about maps and inventory, and when regional leadership is going to come in and see one thing wrong, and fail the team,” they said. “The stress has created such a tense working environment. Seeing someone cry at work is becoming normal.”

The Washington Examiner's Byron York has long been sympathetic to President Donald Trump. He has repeatedly defended the president's conduct in Ukraine and attacked the Democratic case. Just a week ago, he penned a column criticizing the idea that Trump has been less cooperative in the impeachment trial than President Bill Clinton. And in particular, he has opposed Democratic demands for former National Security Adviser John Bolton to be called to testify against the president, saying, "if anything is covered by executive privilege, it would be the president's private conversations with his national security adviser about issues of foreign policy and national security."

The former national security adviser's forthcoming book "The Room Where It Happened" claims Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden, and GOP senators are publicly saying they want him to testify during the impeachment trial.

“I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton," said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).
