    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    After I had applied online I found myself at the meat counter at WFM shopping. I asked one of the team members if the position I applied to was still open. He responded that he did not know but that I could speak with the department manager. I waited a bit and spoke with him. It was a nice casual conversation. He gave me his email.

    The next week I heard back from them and scheduled an interview. I spoke with the assistant manager for about 15 min and then waiting for about 10 min. Then I was called over to interview with the store manager. That was the most intense part of the interview. He was very friendly and asked questions mostly about how I would respond to customers and why I thought WFM was a good fit. I got offered the job at the end of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question I got was in response to one of the skill sets I listed on my resume. From the conversation and my resume he gathered that I claimed to be a really organized person. He asked me a "what would you do" style of question. He was very satisfied with a thorough response.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (South Weymouth, MA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for a position in the kitchen, but by the time they responded to my application the only position still available was in the Meat department, I took the job expecting the meat room in Whole Foods to be exquisite just because the appearance of Whole Foods supermarkets is, but I guess a meat room is a meat room, you can't expect too much. I had three interviews, 1st with my TL, 2nd with the Store ATL, and 3rd with the Store TL. Not too high pressure of a job, a lot to take in at first if you've never worked in a supermarket.

    Interview Questions

    • This question always gets me: "What was a time you had to deal with a difficult customer and how did you resolve it?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much room for salary negotiation, opening a WFM in S. Weymouth is a tough sell , because the general attitude towards WFM is that it's too expensive, or designed for a 'yuppy' crowd, so they said $10/hr was the max they could pay.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Portland, OR) in March 2014.

    Interview

    It was pretty standard. Three round process: first by phone, then with the team leader, then a head of the market. If you've ever had a three round interview before, it shouldn't be much different.

    A phone interview then in person with the direct supervisor, once they approve you then you interview with the store managers. Overall pretty painless process. I applied through their website and heard back in probably 2 weeks and then the interviews all were in a week and I started a couple days after the last interview.
