    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview Details

    There is a panel interview. Mine had 8 people on it, all of whom I knew, but it was still really intimidating. There was a homework assignment that needed to be done as well as reaching out to everyone that was on the panel. The interview is about 45 minutes long and you usually hear if you got the position the same day.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, received a phone interview 72 hours later. The next day was a second abet very brief phone interview, followed by an hour long presentation/panel interview. Within an hour I received a call with a conditional offer, with a formal offer made upon completion of a background check. Pretty straight forward with minimal surprises.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard questions, but the presentation portion was very in-depth. You are given 6 days to put together a full fledged marketing plan and strategy for the following quarter. Requires interviewing 6-8 store leaders as well as potential colleagues. Be prepared for the work and know that chances are 5-6 other people are working just as hard. Leadership is looking to be wowed! Focus on telling stories and differentiating you from the competition. The store really benefits by getting a variety of ideas and strategy, while only hiring one individual.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Whole Foods Market in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had a 30 minute phone interview with the Store Team Leader and a separate phone interview with the regional marketing associate. I was selected among 3 other candidates to participate in a panel interview.

    I had to prepare and present a holiday marketing campaign for the store and then be interviewed by a panel of 8 people.

    The panel had to unanymously agree on hiring one of the 4 candidates. If they could not come to an agreement, they would re-bid the position and screen all new candidates.
