    The interview was very casual the asked me standard questions about my experience. My recommendation is to Google and YouTube the company so you go in knowing more about the company that you're applying to. It's a great place to work the people are very friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Two managers sat down with me to ask several interview questions. The entire process took about 20 minutes max. A few topics covered are standard affair; what do you like about the brand, what are you strengths, why are you interest, describe a time you resolved conflict with a co-worker, and what are you hinderances. The questions which I didn't anticipate were what foods do you like to eat, how would you handle a customer who didn't want to buy more products, and how would you upsale a purchase. All in all appear energetic, personable, capable of focusing, and ready to work in generally and specifically for the brand that is Whole Foods.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (San Jose, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call about 2 days later, where I had to do this phone interview which lasted about 12 minutes. During the phone interview, the lady, who was fairly nice, asked me very generic questions like, "Why WFM" or "Tell me a time where you went above and beyond for a customer." After that, she asked me to come in for a group interview on Thursday. It was great because I had time to prepare.

    Interview day. I dressed very conservatively and I had the most common Interview questions recited in my head. I came in on time and notified the customer's service desk that I had a group interview.

    It didn't turn out to be a group interview. This employer alone, Debbie, conducted the interview. She had this packet which had interview questions and she'd write pieces of my responses on it. The interview had common questions pop up, like "Why did you choose to apply to WFM" or "Give me a time where you encountered an angry customer."

    ***They ask you a lot of questions about customer service. They didn't really ask a lot about me as a person.

    Debbie then told me that I have to talk to her boss, Ricardo, for the final decision. Met her boss and he asked me similar questions from Debbie, which took
    about 10-15 minutes. He also asked me if I committed a felony, and all the other questions which involved breaking the law. He then told me that
    they'd call me the same day, or the next for the final decision whether I was hired or not.

    The interview process lasted about an hour, because Debbie thoroughly explained some of the procedures at Whole Foods and the benefits of working there.

    I didn't get a call the same day, or the next, but I did get one the next, NEXT day, and I got offered the job!

    Interview

    I applied online on 4/12. I received an email on 4/25 for a cashier position opening. In the email i was asked , if interested in the position, to answer three questions. After responding with answers, I immediately received an email asking me to come in for an in person interview. I set up my interview for 4/28. In my first interview I was asked the same 3 questions as well as a couple more. I was then set up for a second interview on 4/28 with the Store Manager. Meeting him he asked questions that were based on the type of person I am. I could sense that e wanted to keep a "straight face" but I could see I made him smile throughout the whole interview. He then said he would love to see me grow with the company and asked me to stick around to fill out some paperwork.
