Customer Service Interview

Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Nashville, TN) in September 2016.

Interview

Invited to a hiring day. They offered me the job in the first 15 minutes. I was under the impression that they liked me a lot to offer the position on the spot. Turns out they had a big turn over and hired lots of people that day. I chose to dismiss they higher turn over rate since this job is at a grocery store. That is to be expected.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Boulder, CO).

    Interview

    I applied online. I was invited to interview after I voluntarily came to the store I wanted to work at and introduced myself to my future manager. The interview felt informal: we sat on a couch. I was offered the job at the conclusion of the interview. While I was employed at Whole Foods, the interview process became much more rigorous. I'm under the impression that more recent hires went through a phone interview round, then 2 face to face panel interviews. The final interview was with the store's assistant manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? What stands out to you the most when you walk into a Whole Foods store? Do you like to cook? What are your favorite foods?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Newport News, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Large group interview - not sure how they can arrive at a decision with the volume of people interviewed and the arrangement of tables. They observed team interaction while walking around taking notes. Overall it made me feel like a small child and while I appreciate their innovative approach, it made them seem like the snobs that they are.

    Interview

    they have you do a group interview everyone who is applying for positions in all of their departments. you role play different situations like if a customer comes in and isn't being helped but you're in the middle of stocking the shelves or a customer needs help finding an item and the nearest colleague isn't greeting them. essentially they want to see how you would react in situations where customers aren't either being helped or you have a task to do and how you set your priorities.

    Interview Questions

    • what's your favorite item at whole foods and why? they also ask what the price of certain items are? they're no wrong answer but it wouldn't hurt to browse their store for what the prices are for basic items. most importantly, just be outgoing and engaging in the role playing. they want to see if you're willing to talk to strangers.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    they wouldn't budge on the starting price, apparently everyone starts at $11/hr
