    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    First there was a brief phone interview then an in-store interview. I don't think they usually do much of a phone interview (could be wrong) because she chuckled and said she didn't really remember asking me those questions when I was at the in-store interview. The two people I talked to were really nice though (first spoke to the woman then her supervisor). I got an offer at the end of the in-store interview and had to begin background checks online a bit later. That is what takes the most time, especially because I am from a different country - had to get a background check from native country too. Otherwise the background check probably would've been a lot faster.

    Very nice lady who interviewed me. She seemed extremely interested in my experience and it felt like I knew her forever. I was able to answer her questions as if I was having a conversation with a friend but in a professional setting.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an email a few days later for a group interview. At the group interview there were 3 groups and you had to create a commercial. I was called a day later to come in for a one on one interview but couldn't get the job because the orientation and training interfered with school. Called back 2 months later and set up another interview. The guy interviewing me didn't know I was coming in for an interview and didn't seem very interested.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted an application online and I got a call a few days later from a team leader. I was asked why I wanted to work at WF, my previous customer service experience, and how I deal with problems in the workplace. The TL then told me about the position, that it was part time, the hours, and pay rate. I was asked to come in for an interview the next day (on Tuesday) with the person who called and also an associate of his. The next day I came in and met with the guy who called an also another person. They asked me the same questions over the phone and asked where I saw myself in a two years. They also asked about my hobbies and how I keep motivated. It was all very casual and laid back. They were very friendly and it was over in about 15 minutes. They said they'll get back to me by Friday, but I got a call back later on that night with an offer. The next day I got an email regarding a background check, which I had to complete as the next step.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (North Wales, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Went into the store to ask about an application I had submitted and was taken back for a "pre-screening" interview immediately. Some difficult and odd questions asked. The interviewer initially seemed pleased with me and said that I would hear back about a second interview - and then I was sent a form email saying that I was not what they were looking for. Felt very mislead, to be honest.

    Interview

    It was a one on one interview with the manager of the store. We had our interview in the café area. She asked me general interview questions like what my strengths and weaknesses are etc. Plus a scenario where I had to prioritize tasks and how I would solve each task. Very friendly and low key.

    It was a easy interview all you have to do is be yourself and have a bubbly personality. Then you'll definitely get the job. I enjoyed my interview because it didn't feel like I was being integrated it was a very comfortable atmosphere.
