    I applied online on 4/12. I received an email on 4/25 for a cashier position opening. In the email i was asked , if interested in the position, to answer three questions. After responding with answers, I immediately received an email asking me to come in for an in person interview. I set up my interview for 4/28. In my first interview I was asked the same 3 questions as well as a couple more. I was then set up for a second interview on 4/28 with the Store Manager. Meeting him he asked questions that were based on the type of person I am. I could sense that e wanted to keep a "straight face" but I could see I made him smile throughout the whole interview. He then said he would love to see me grow with the company and asked me to stick around to fill out some paperwork.

    Part Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in University Place, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (University Place, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call back a week later. The person who first called me wasn't there so a different manager interviewed me over the phone. They asked a few basic questions about availability and why I wanted to work at Whole Foods. I don't have experience as a cashier or at a grocery store, so I'm sure that was part of not getting another interview.
