    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    everybody has a great attitude, fantastic leadership (at least at my store), gain-sharing, easy to take time off, paid time off, moral company with great fundraisers, and the guests are just delightful

    Cons

    they hire almost everybody starting at part time and make it pretty difficult to get more hours, even full time employees with get shorted on hours many weeks and rather than a full 40 hour week will get 30-35 hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You'll have a lower turnover rate if you just gave people more hours! I would love to make WFM my only workplace but I cannot live on less than 30 hours a week.

    Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an online application and was contacted for a phone prescreen. I talked to both the finance recruiter and the department manager. I was called the next week for an interview in whih I met with around 7 people from various areas of finance or accounting. I also had a face to face with the recruiter. A few days later, I was contacted for a second panel interview with around 10 people and sent a homework assignment to present to the panel in which they wanted me to reach out to team members to help complete and I would present the homework would be asked questions by the panel. I decided not to move forward at that point. I thought it was absolutely too much for a lower level accounting position and the pay and benefits was not enough to keep me interested in the position.
