    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    Interview process was a great experience, the interviewer makes sure you feel comfortable and have a relaxed conversation so you can focus on selling yourself. Usually it takes 2 different interviews but they make the whole process really fast.

    Interview

    I though the interview was nice. There isn’t much more to say than that and I’m required to write 30 words here. Most of the time they group interview, but for team member hire it’s one on one.

    Prepared Foods Team Leader Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Denver, CO) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Because of COVID, all interviews are currently taking place over the phone and on Chime, the Amazon application. I would describe their interview process as thorough, as they first have you interview over the phone, and then invite you to an interview with 11 other people, comprising of managers, regional staff, and store employees. They assign homework before the second interview; in this role, it was a 90-day department improvement plan as well as contacting each of the 11 people and scheduling mini interviews with them before the main interview. I was told to expect a phone call from the assistant manager, and when I received the call, he was upset that I had not called him earlier. I explained the miscommunication, but he said he would be removing me from the list due to unacceptable behavior, that being me not calling him earlier. It had me rather frazzled, but I am relieved that I will not be working under this manager! Beware those looking for jobs at the Tamarac store...

    Interview

    Fairly brief interview process. They just wanted to get a feel for who you are and your work ethic. Once they know you will be a good fit for the team then that's basically it.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Houston, TX) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Interview was scheduled for 3:30, I arrived 18 mins early and checked in at guest services and was told to wait outside where other candidates were waiting. Ended up waiting over an hour to be seen and the person giving the interview was extremely rude & inconsiderate and unprepared.

    They're very friendly and just want to get to know you and why you're interested in working there. It's great to be enthusiastic and do some research on Whole Foods beforehand. Show up early and be friendly too!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview and setup for a in person interview. It was very easy and I was supposed to come in for a third interview but they did not call back on the date they said they would to set it up, and when I sought assistance to inquire for more information it took about a week as the hiring manager was not in until next week. By the time I was finally able to get information I lost the possibility of getting the job.
