    Grocery Team Member Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Dallas, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and got an email back to attend a group interview. The group interview was very laid back and simple. They explained to us about Whole Foods values and the various positions we could work in. They told us about themselves and then everyone in the group interview had to introduce ourselves (Name, favorite food, position we would like to work, and why Whole Foods). Then they split us up in groups and did some group activities.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview went fairly well. I was asked simple questions and answered them with confidence. I plan to stay at this job for a good while. I wasn't asked difficult questions and they told me how much i would make and i loved the base rate. Whole Food interview is good and anyone with a good sense of confidence can ace it.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I received a phone call from the team manager about 1 month after submitting my resume online. He asked to schedule an interview and I was able to meet for an interview at the store a week later. I was interviewed by 3 people in the conference room. One was the manager I talked to over the phone and the other two were regular employees. It's a laid back process but don't show up in jeans and a t-shirt to the interview. Overall, they just wanted to get to know you and make sure you will do the work and get along with the rest of the employees.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market in March 2016.

    Interview

    Was emailed to come in for an interview, upon arrival I sat down for the interview and when we were finished, it was not for the job I applied. I was asked to come again on a separate day for the position I had applied. It happened a second time, and they asked if I wanted the other position. It wasn't a good experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Brea, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online for a new store opening in my area and I received an email back for a group interview. The group interview was 30 people split amongst five tables with a recruiter at each table. The table interview was a basic introduction interview, why Whole Foods, what's your experience, etc. There was also a team activity and table activities of acting out customer recovery scenarios and applying job benefits to the Whole Foods' value system. Shortly after I received an email to come back for a one on one interview. It was a job fair set up, and I was given a brief interview by two Grocery Team Leaders. I was declined the position due to my lack of retail and grocery experience.
