I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Saint Paul, MN) in February 2016.

    The interview process was super easy and laid back. They asked common sense questions and made it feel more like a conversation than an interview. When it was over I recieved a phone call 3 hours later saying I had recieved the job.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Newport Beach, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was good. I sat with the team leader and the assistant team leader. Asked me fairly simple questions. They were very friendly and not intimidating at all. After the interview, they said they will call me in a couple of days to inform me if I got the job. They informed me through email I didn't get the job. I was bummed because i prepared through Glassdoor.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    From what I can remember (as it has been a few years since)... It was REALLY hard to get an interview. No matter how many people you knew in the store. Once I got the interview - I moved on the same day to the second and then the third at another time.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    There were two ladies in chef uniforms that interviewed me in the cafeteria. They were both very kind and didn't try to intimidate me. The position applied for was part time and they said it would be around 25 per week. I said it was perfect. After the questions they said they'd be right back and then after they came back they offered me the position and was hired on the spot. Smile a lot, make eye contact, and be yourself. I wore professional attire (button up shirt and dress pants, low high heels). I met a few people on the way upstairs to start paperwork and they were all really nice and welcoming! I'm so excited to start.
