    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Pompano Beach, FL).

    Interview

    I applied online, two days later I got a call to set up an interview. She asked me on the phone to tell her about myself, then asked if I wanted to come in the next day to interview. I came in the next day about 15min early as I do all my interviews. They were still interviewing someone when I got in, but after about a 10min wait, they called me over to their conference area. There were two employees there who had worked there for almost 10 years each. They only asked me 5 questions and did not smile at me throughout the entire conversation. They seemed very disinterested in getting to know more about me. Its like they had already filled the positon and interviewed me because they had to. Very snooty and stuck up vibes. It's never good when you can already tell someone doesn't like you after just shaking your hand! At the end they told me they had more interviews over the weekend and I would hear back after that with an answer. Well, 2 hours later I got an email saying sorry but thanks for applying! I wish I had interviewed with the woman who I spoke with on the phone that set up the interview, she was sooo sweet and awesome. The two people that interviewed me had no emotion and probably wanted someone who has worked at a store for 10 years like they have.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    Applied on-line, and was called pretty promptly for an interview. It was pretty low-key. One of the less stressful interviews I've had. Not very long. I met with one of the 2 team leaders. They got back to me within a few days and made me an offer. He told me a few things that helped me to understand the job better. They are mainly concerned about availability. They weed through a lot of people after they are hired. Mainly because they have a very strict time and attendance policy, a lot of people get fired over that.
