Specialty Team Leader Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Whole Foods Market in September 2013.

Interview Details

I saw the posting on Indeed.com and sent in my resume. I received a call from one guy doing a phone pre-screening who liked me and me on to a face-to-face interview in the store where the position would be based out of. I also had to go to the actual Whole Foods website to fill out an application there as well. I was interviewed by two individuals simultaneously and it appeared they had interviews set up every half hour as they were finishing one as I arrived and there was another candidate there as I left. I was told that the next step would be a panel interview of 8-10 people and they would be calling back Friday (this is a Tuesday.) If they do call back, I won't continue with the process.

    Reasons for Declining

    Because, for a company who pretend of the welfare of the people, and criticize that the government takes over healthcare responsibility. The non so conscious capitalist that is WFM ask a flexibility of 7/7 from 7.30 to 11.30pm with potential night shift a not so sure 40 hour a week and offer at leader level, no benefits before a certain amount of time, offer 8 hours of vacation for 6 months worked and flip flops on going to offer from was suppose to be an annual salary to a hourly wages that doesn't allow you to leave with decency ...the conscious capitalism is more a modern slavery concept.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Whole Foods Market in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Being persistent is key to getting interviewed. You have to really earn this job. The interview process was fantastic! Make sure you have knowledge of the department you are applying for. I had one panel interview with 2 team leaders. And then I was asked back for a second interview with a larger panel including the store managers and regional manager. Great people, very friendly. Nice and organized work space and offices. Everyone that I talked to that is employed with Whole Foods had such a positive attitude about their job. You could tell everyone really loved working there. My main advice is be prepared to "wow " your panel because they are looking for extraordinary people!!
