    Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Was very uncomfortable experience. Felt like an interrogation. One of the interviewees refused to shake my hand before the interview. Made me feel like I didn't belong there. I could tell by their demeanor that staff had no intention of hiring me before I spoke a word. One person even left half way through.

    Interview Questions

    • They were mostly focused on my personality and what I would do in certain situations.   1 Answer

    Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Austin, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Never got to interview was knocked out before and it did not make sense. I had more experience and a Masters and not even a phone call. Whole Foods says that a "real person" reads the application/resume. Maybe they did not understand my resume? I'm over qualified - oh yes. But we all need employment. Disappointed after applying for 2 positions.

    Interview Questions

    • I was perfect in every way for what they wanted. Doesn't make sense unless internal hire was happening.   Answer Question
