    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Whole Foods Market (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    I was called a few days after submitting my resume online, and then had two interviews in person. The first was with the assistant store team leader, who asked me broader questions about my work history seemed to be gauging my ability to relate to others. The second interview focused more around my specific customer service experience - and seemed to gauge how well of a fit I would be with her team. The second interview was with the assistant customer service team leader.

    Interview Questions

    • The assistant store team leader asked about my favorite types of meals to prepare - and also asked me what I would recommend specifically to different customer questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Whole Foods Market (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Attractive man interviewed me so that was a plus. Very nice asked me the typical interview questions such as my experience, why do I think I would be a good employee....yadda yadda yadda.....had my 2nd interview the same day.....took a week and a 1/2 for orientation......that was a 2-day process....and 1st day of training was the following week. My advice is to dress casual for the interview, you don't want to look all out of place.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Whole Foods Market in September 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was long. Many questions were asked regarding your previous encounters and experience, and you were supposed to provide immediate examples that could backup your answers. If you passed the first interview, you also had to pass the Group/Panel interview. I am very much "pro" towards these difficult interviews. It is fair and is challenging.
