Whole Body Team Member Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interview

I was asked to come in for an interview. When I got there the lady had no idea who I was or that her other manager (who was supposed to be there and didn't show up that day) scheduled an interview with her.

Interview Questions

  • The head manager then proceeded to be rude and talk in a condescending tone to me. I was cordial, but I think its interesting that they messed up and then treated me like the one who made the error. I've never had such a bad interview before. I don't think they realize that we are interviewing them also as they speak to us. What a shame people like this are managers.   1 Answer

    Interview

    More intense than I expected but the questions were fair and thought out by the staff. I felt very comfortable and at ease, they try not to intimidate you but also make sure you are a good fit. They ask a lot of situational questions that actually make sense for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Whole Foods Market in September 2012.

    Interview

    I went to a job fair because they were opening a new store. I like the store, but I was originally very overwhelmed to see the amount of people who attended the job fair. I spoke to a person who looked at my resume, and we discussed a passion for "whole foods" and then I waited for several hours for a secondary team specific interview. I interviewed with the team lead for whole body and she asked product specific question and general retail questions. Then I was taken to the assistant store team leader who gave the final yes or no.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Newport Beach, CA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Invited to an interview at a Newport Beach job fair. Exciting atmosphere but the only WF employees with human hearts were the receptionists at the Welcome Table. Two women sat an interview table with me. Only one spoke while the other scribbled notes down, giving off severely bad vibes. Neither were receptive to me attending school or experiencing personal growth through previous jobs. The woman speaking to me said she had no problem with me attending school, but the business must always come first-no matter what. The woman talking to me was insincere and made me feel just as uncomfortable as her silent but deadly partner. Both frowned on my inability to recite everything there is to know about vitamins and their products. Every product must be memorized as a prerequisite apparently. Said they'll call by Thursday if they're interested. I'm not holding my breath.
