    Application

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Tustin, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through their careers tab, and then got a call 1 week later for an in-person interview. The phone call wasn't so much a pre-screening, more just a follow up and invitation to an interview 3 days later. I asked if it was going to be a 1-1 or panel interview, and was told it would be him, myself and one other TL. The first interview was pretty laid-back and casual, both guys were really nice. It was pretty short and simple, and at the end they told me I would hear back from them later that day regardless if I would be granted a 2nd interview or not. Luckily, I was invited back the following day! The 2nd interview was with 2 new people, and was a bit more difficult. Not hard, but they were definitely grilling me to see if I could handle the stress of the job. I've wanted to work at WFM for awhile now, and truly believe it's the right job for me. With that in mind, I stayed true to myself in the interview and I believe that played a huge role in why I got the job! Be calm, authentic and aware!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Rochester Hills, MI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I had 2 seperate interviews with two people from my team. Both interviews were pretty straight forward and relaxed. Simple questions pertaining to the type of work I would be doing on a daily basis. The whole team really makes you feel welcome and I was pleasantly surprised when they offered me the job 3 hours after I had my second interview. I have high hopes for this company!

    Casual attire seems to be fine with them. For both interviews I wore a sun dress, a pair of Tom's and a cover up to make it a little more professional. I also have many visible tattoos and piercings and bright teal hair and they didn't mind at all. Can't wait to get my chef coat! :D
