Attended a hiring fair, was pleased with the Team Leaders, thought their questions were fair and intuitive. Both seemed well versed in the nature of the job, and had a grasp of the position in general and we comfortable talking about various aspects of the job beyond just that of the interview.

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Whole Foods Market in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews, it was not the most interviews I have had to do but it was efficient enough. Phone interview was short about five questions and in person interview was a few more questions but a lot of detail about what the position that was available.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a pretty standard interview the most difficult thing was trying to explain why I had never considered shopping there previous to applying.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was not really a negotiation phase, it was just let us do the background check and then you either accept or decline if they send an email.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Whole Foods Market in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Total of 3 interviews. First it was a job fair - about 20 people in one room were asked questions like "why do you want to work at WFM", "what is an excellent customer service for you". Second interview took place at one of WFM locations. Every candidate was interviewed individually. Took about 15 minutes. Questions "why Whole Foods", "what would you bring to the team". Third and last interview was just a formality. One of a Team Leader called to set up a time for the final interview. I went there, it was just me and him, I were asked very simple question about my resume, schedule/hours I won't be able to work. Very nice and friendly atmosphere. Got the final answer right away.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no difficult questions. If you are honest and know something about natural, organic food and customer service then there shouldn't be a problem.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call for an interview about 2 weeks after applying.
    I went in 15 minutes before the scheduled time and waited until the correct time (it's great to be early but I think in a busy store the management had tasks to finish before interviewing me so I patiently waited). This initial interview felt relaxed and basic. The interviewer then said that he'd like to set me up for a second interview but the correct supervisor wasn't in at the moment.
    I went home and got a call to come BACK in if I could because a slot opened up with the correct person. I went back 15 minutes early again and waited the 15 minutes. This interview was a lot tougher with more intricate questions and a more intimidating interviewer. At the end he informed me that it was a 3 interview process and I'd have to come back in for the 3rd. This wasn't a big deal at all but I was just eager to get the ball rolling so it was hard to wait. The 3rd interview finally arrived and it was not even 5 minutes long. I was told I would be offered the position and went on to do a bunch of paperwork. Strenuous experience but it's good that they take hiring seriously.

    Interview Questions
    • "Describe a recent meal you had in as much detail as possible"
