Prepared Foods Team Member Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brentwood, MO
Declined Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Brentwood, MO) in September 2016.

Interview

After submitting an application online, I was contacted by phone a few days later for a preliminary interview with a lower level manager. After this, I was immediately contacted for a follow-up interview with the store manager. Both sessions were heavy on personality questions and hypotheticals, ie "How do you handle an unhappy customer?"

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Thousand Oaks, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Went through two interviews, first with the team leader of the department, then with the store team leader. Was asked about job background, values, and also just talked to about what it means to work there.

    Was given the green light by the team leader: he told me I was likely to get the job. They said they would give me a call. Two weeks pass, I call and they say they need more time and they will definitely call me. Another week or two and still nothing.

    Then another week and finally decided to tell me that the position was not open anymore because department heads were changing and they would have to wait for that to change and settle and then start the interview process all over again in a few weeks.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    5 minute prescreening phone call, pretty basic. The man I spoke to was stern, but personable. I tried to make it as much of a conversation as possible. Since I am looking to relocate, he told me to come in person when I get there for an in-person interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Asheville, NC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Both the application and interview process was straightforward until they sent me a blank email which they claimed contained a link to accept their offer. I was frustrated and didn't end up taking the job for other reasons, but that unresolved miscommunication was the only negative experience.
