    Positive Experience

    Interview

    I applied online on their website. There was a focus on email. They emailed back to me with a list of questions, I answered the questions, and then they emailed me to schedule my first interview. First interview was in the back offices where it was quiet, interviewer was very friendly, it was like a casual conversation. They emailed me about scheduling a second interview. The second interview was with two interviewers and we sat in the cafe area where it was quite noisy. I thought I did terribly in the second interview, but a day later I got a call and was offered the job.

    I applied online. I received a call to come in and do a group interview at 3:00. We were finally taken to a conference room at nearly 4. We were given name tags and had to go around the room and say if we were over the age of 18, our work history, what customer service means to us, and finally why we wanted to work at Whole Foods. Afterwards the team leaders told us about themselves and their positions. We were then split into two groups and given two different scenarios to see how we would handle them. Next, we filled out forms on our availability and shifts we could do. Make sure you bring your resume. We were told we would get called back to a second interview the same day or the next if we passed the first.
