Panel interview with due diligence work required, along with presentation. First you go through a phone interview.

You're given a project to complete and expected to speak with everyone on your panel, as well as, spend time in stores leading up to the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Austin, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    There were individual interviews, group interviews and even a panel interview with 12+ people. I was well informed about where they were in the hiring process throughout the entire experience. You definitely have a chance to get to know the team before accepting an offer, which I appreciate. They also did a skills test and I had to provide samples of my work.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume there was an email exchange, followed-up by a phone interview. After successfully advancing past those steps there was a group interview that was done in a "speed dating" format. I had never heard of that before but was game. It was weird to see the other job candidates in the same room but then again Whole Foods isn't like other companies.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Cleveland, OH) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was called twice for 2nd rounds of the interview process, both times someone internally was hired. I was excited both times to interview and also to be apart of "change". I saw many things that needed change and felt it could have been a good fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I was excited to "pass" an initial phone interview and be brought in for a panel interview process as I am a true people person with a track record of passion and poise to collaborate with my work teams.

    I think any time a company has a panel interview process where the candidates are all in the same room together during the interview process it has the potential to feel a little awkward. In my career I've never been corralled with fellow job applicants in the same room but nonetheless I was game as I knew I could do the job. I found the interviewers to be cordial and outgoing although no challenging questions were asked of my abilities to do the job and no review of my online portfolio was completed by the panel.

    Unfortunately I didn't survive the first cut of candidates. Based on my experience of the questions asked to gauge cultural fit ("What do you like to do for fun?") and my visual review of the other job applicants I left feeling age or gender-based discrimination was likely at play.

    I doubt I'll ever apply again at Whole Foods based off my experience but encourage others to do so in the hopes they might meet whatever "cultural fit" the company thinks is best to deliver its mission.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (San Francisco, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    After initial phone contact, I came in to meet with store leadership for a 30 minute screening. I was then invited back for a panel interview, which included future direct reports, peers, leadership and regional office leadership--about 8 or 9 people in all. Some were prepared with questions obviously pulled from an interview guide, but some asked intelligent, relevant and challenging questions. Be sure you know the company's 7 core values when you interview, and refer to them.

    somewhat, however there are published salary caps for every position in the store.
