I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market

Interview

Due to COVID, the interview was done over the phone and lasted for 15 minutes at the most. You rarely talk about yourself since they only go over the job description and your availability. They hire based on the assessment they give you a couple days prior, so the "interview" didn't really feel like an interview but rather a call to offer the job.

Interview Questions
  • What's your availability? And any questions you have for the interviewer.

The interview was very quick, the manager just wanted to know what hours I could work. It wasn’t a very detail interview. I think they were just desperate for workers. There was suppose to be a second interview with the managers supervisor, I think it might of been the store manager. In the end I didn’t have the second interview with the supervisor, the woman I spoke to the first time just vouched for me

Interview Questions
  • What hours can I work? What’s my schedule like? Can I work overtime?

Panel style interview with members of different departments as well as the one you're applying for. Prior to the interview, if you're an internal candidate you'll be asked to go around to the members of your department and let them know you're applying for a leadership role and ask them what you can improve on. Overall pretty uncomfortable.

Interview

First, an invitation to interview with their AI platform called HireVue (I encourage you to look this up) - essentially a recording of your timed responses to their question prompts. Apparently, HireVue can utilize algorithms to make decisions based on your facial expressions, words you choose, and movements you make. If you pass that part, you will be invited to work on a project to submit to your main contact (HRBP in this case) prior to meeting with a panel interview. Then, you are scheduled to interview with a panel of nine people (yes, NINE people) over Zoom to first present your project, and then be subject to questioning by those nine people. Side note - some of those nine people didn't even have their cameras on during the interview, and some would turn their cameras on and off throughout the interview.

Interview Questions
  • Hypothetically speaking, if you were to put together a hiring event, how would you go about it? After you ran through a background check, someone does not come up clean - how would you respond to that? Hypothetically speaking, how would you go about investigating a dispute where you don't have access to all the information?
