    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I have applied for 2 jobs at 2 different WFM locations. The first I was offered and accepted. The second I was runner up. WFM likes to interview in panels, which can often be intimidating. However, one positive thing I can say about WFM is that I have enjoyed the interview processes. The interviewers are always prepared ask insightful questions, and respond quickly with a decision.

    Cloud Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    *Applied November 2016

    *Received email from recruiter about role and time to talk in February 2017.

    *Talked with recruiter, was told I would be speaking to more folks on the team. Then nothing -- complete silence.

    *Followed up three times by email and twice by phone and then gave up.

    Terrible interview process. I am not sure what is going on at the corporate office here in Austin, but no way would I work for anyone who doesn't even remotely value job candidates.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    The interview was difficult. A senior level management member questioned me about the company's values, reasons for founding, what sets them apart, etc. He was very respectful and definitely expected a thorough response. He asked me to clarify and elaborate a few times.
