Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Whole Foods Market.
Interview Details – They called me first, then I drove over for the interview. The interview is conducted sitting in the booths at the front end of the store. This can be very nerve-wracking if you were hoping for a quiet, distraction-free interview environment, but perhaps they're trying to assess your ability to handle the activity of the store. If that interview is successful, they'll call you a few days to a week later to interview with the next-higher-up manager. If this is successful, they'll usually offer you the job on the spot, or tell you that they wish to hire you but you must first interview with the store manager.
Interview Question – "When have you ever had to deal with an uncomfortable situation on the job and how did you handle it?" I was frank and told them about a harassment incident and the store manager seemed impressed with how I handled things, so don't be afraid to give a real example. Or you could just fabricate, it's not like they will call your old boss and say "Hey did you really scream at/punch/stalk/steal from XX employee four years ago?" Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I decided to take a work-study job instead. The traffic to the Whole Foods store was abhorrent, and I was told by two different friends who work there that WF will write you up for being late even if they schedule you to be there during the worst rush-hour times when traffic is at a standstill.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Whole Foods Market in March 2012.
Interview Details – I was first called by someone who asked me a few basic questions (Why do you want to work here?) The person the asked if I could come in for an in person interview in the next hour. I agreed. When I got there I was interviewd by the store team leader and a supervisor. It was more of a conversation than a interview. I felt very much in control. After about 5 mins they told me the starting pay, and asked me to fill out some paperwork. I was called about a week later to start my training.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Whole Foods Market in July 2010.
Interview Details – I was asked how much I know about WFM and about core values. Make sure you know them well and refer to them. Also customer service experience is important.
