Front End Team Member Interview

Anonymous Employee in Lake Grove, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Lake Grove, NY).

Interview

The interview was a three step process. The first time I interviewed in a group, and the second time I interviewed with a team manager. On my third interview I met with a store manager and a manager of my department. Fairly easy questions. Knowledge of organic and health foods is most definitely a must.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (San Diego, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online then went into the store to talk to customer service. They essentially told me they wanted to make sure I was personable. Typical for customer service. They offered me an interview for the next day. After that, a few weeks passed and I had a second interview where a supervisor asked maybe 3 questions and got offered the job on the spot.

    Front End Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plantation, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Plantation, FL).

    Interview

    I handed in a written application. I was called back within a week to meet one of the store team leads. The interview itself was very informal. We met in the store's cafe area and after an interview that lasted no more than 15-20 minutes, I was hired on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult. The main question that sealed the deal them on me was why I wanted to work for Whole Foods. They ate up that I did my research and new about the company. They are really looking for people who know about the store and their practices and who seem to be impressed by it.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Nashville, TN) in May 2014.

    Interview

    15-20 minute beahvioral interview. Submitted my application online, called to follow up (knowing someone on the team always helps), and was called in for an interview. I met with 2 Team Leaders in the care area at Whole Foods, and they chatted with me for a bit. Some basic preparation is necessary -- I've seen some teenagers come in with no idea what to say for very standard questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? What do you know about Whole Foods? What is your experience with customer service?   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Birmingham, AL).

    Interview

    They called me first, then I drove over for the interview. The interview is conducted sitting in the booths at the front end of the store. This can be very nerve-wracking if you were hoping for a quiet, distraction-free interview environment, but perhaps they're trying to assess your ability to handle the activity of the store. If that interview is successful, they'll call you a few days to a week later to interview with the next-higher-up manager. If this is successful, they'll usually offer you the job on the spot, or tell you that they wish to hire you but you must first interview with the store manager.

    Interview Questions

    • "When have you ever had to deal with an uncomfortable situation on the job and how did you handle it?" I was frank and told them about a harassment incident and the store manager seemed impressed with how I handled things, so don't be afraid to give a real example. Or you could just fabricate, it's not like they will call your old boss and say "Hey did you really scream at/punch/stalk/steal from XX employee four years ago?"   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I decided to take a work-study job instead. The traffic to the Whole Foods store was abhorrent, and I was told by two different friends who work there that WF will write you up for being late even if they schedule you to be there during the worst rush-hour times when traffic is at a standstill.
