Grocery Team Member Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market in March 2016.

Interview

Was emailed to come in for an interview, upon arrival I sat down for the interview and when we were finished, it was not for the job I applied. I was asked to come again on a separate day for the position I had applied. It happened a second time, and they asked if I wanted the other position. It wasn't a good experience.

I interviewed with them and they were super nice and laid back. I received a call the following day saying they were offering me a job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Brea, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online for a new store opening in my area and I received an email back for a group interview. The group interview was 30 people split amongst five tables with a recruiter at each table. The table interview was a basic introduction interview, why Whole Foods, what's your experience, etc. There was also a team activity and table activities of acting out customer recovery scenarios and applying job benefits to the Whole Foods' value system. Shortly after I received an email to come back for a one on one interview. It was a job fair set up, and I was given a brief interview by two Grocery Team Leaders. I was declined the position due to my lack of retail and grocery experience.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back a week later. Did an initial phone screening then scheduled an in-store interview. The in-person interview was very relaxed and they asked typical retail questions. I met with the team leader and the store leader on duty.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market in October 2015.

    Interview

    I got called in for an interview a week after I applied for the job online. I got interviewed by 2 people, a Team Member Service Lead(HR) and a Team Lead from grocery department. After the interview they told me to wait for their phone call. One day later they called me to setup for a second interview, this time I was interview by the Store Team Lead(Store Manager). Again, he told me to wait for the phone call. Two days later they called me to let me know that I got the job offer and all I needed was a background check and I'll be given a start day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    Applied about 8 times before received a call back. Attended initial group interview/ overview of the company, interactive 2 hours long group interview, third interview with Associate Store Team Leader, then fourth and final interview with department manager. In the group interview they made us go around and talk about ourselves. Tedious, lengthy, and unnecessary in my opinion, as two years later, only three of the roughly 15 people hired are still around.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Boulder, CO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and interviewed at the store after a quick phone connection. Basically there was three back to back interviews with all levels of management (Team Leaders). Very casual interviews, which were pretty much just a quick chat about intentions, goals, and work ethics. I was offered a reasonable pay rate, and the background check only took a few days to complete.
