    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Bellevue, WA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was part of a group interview and we watched a long slide-show about company values and had to write a skit and do fake customer interactions. It lasted about 2-3 hours. It's important to stand out and be personable even if you're applying for a BOH position like cooking or catering. After the long group interview you are interviewed one on one by various managers of different departments of Whole Foods. If one of them likes you they ask for your availability and call you in about 48 hours with an offer which they insist is not open to negotiation.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Bellevue, WA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had a group interview and it was really long. Standing out is extremely important. You have to seem excited and sociable. They ask you a lot of hypothetical questions about specific scenarios. The answer is always "give the customer what they want".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Cleveland, OH) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I sent my resume online when I applied for the prepared foods cook. About two days later I heard from someone telling me they are "very interested" in talking to me. I schedule the interview for a Tuesday.

    When I get there I am met by two women. One woman says Hi I'm the one that called you then says tell the other woman something about yourself. As I'm telling the other woman my background the first woman that spoke to me is either texting or picking with her nails because she isn't interested in anything I had to say. It was EXTREMELY rude!

    As I am telling them about my qualifications, the woman that isn't paying any attention to me says "So you didn't deal with any customers?" If she would have listened to me she would have heard me say I dealt with customers 100% of the time.

    They are giving me the vibe that my qualifications don't meet what they are looking for and the woman continues with her head down either texting or playing with her nails. I shake their hands say goodbye and will never again try and work there.
