    Panel interview so you'll sit in a room with a big table of about 6-9 people including cashiers, supervisors, team leaders as well as store leadership. They each take turns asking you questions and at the end they'll give you time to ask any questions you have regarding the job. The interviews usually last no more than 15 minutes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Boston, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It seemed a very organized process. The team leader? Manager? Had phone interview with them then scheduled for a one on one with another later in the week. That interview went very well. 1 hour. I was praised for my managerial experience and was told they were pleased with my answers on following the policies. About needing to be black and white with rules and holding every one accountable. Was asked to touch base with other supervisors before my group interview and given an email. I emailed a few questions and got an off response from manager that perhaps I should not have contacted them but they went on to describe the location the challenges, including a huge level of involuntary job loss. ( thus managerial experience would help greatly)Went away feeling my experience was of value to them. Third interview scheduled, with a panel of supervisors and asst supervisors. Half of them I could have given birth to.
    It seemed they divied up the questions. I answered confidently and knew my experience came through.
    Received a call an hour later asking me how I felt I did? I said there are is always room for improvement, but I was pleased.
    "The team felt you came across as to mangerial and stern. "
    I'm thinking to myself that these were the qualities you personally were praising at the solo interview.
    Managerial and confident. Too managerial and stern. All in perception and I feel I was led astray by second interview and what they were looking for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    I applied online. It took about a month to hear back, but about three days to actually get hired. They called me and described the job position to me, which I found interesting. They set up a meeting with me three days later and asked me to do my due diligence and speak to employees at that location. They also asked me to make an action plan to help with the weaknesses in the team.

    Tips:

    DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE. This is the single most important part of the interview.
    Do your homework. If you don't know about Whole Foods, you won't get far.
    Give examples. A lot of these questions are situation based. Examples will make you be stronger in your responses.
