    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Fairfax, VA) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone to set up an interview after applying online the week before. I was given the choice of a few dates and times I could interview. The interview was a week later with a panel of 3. It was held in a relaxed setting, just as if we were having lunch together in their store. When you think of interviewing in front of a panel, you think it would be intimidating, but they we all very friendly and patient listeners.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Arlington, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Easy and quick. Very welcoming and nice. They took me into the seafood team office. Dress business casual. Make sure you have that upbeat whole foods welcoming attitude and act like you are a part of the congregation of WFM. We did a quick tour of the store and they explained a little bit of what each area is. Asked if i shopped there before and if I noticed any new changes(which I did not). Asked if I was okay with being around fish and smelly items(did not mind, added a quip about activities that I do that are a bit smelly). Oh and brush up on some recipes for your defined 'food' as they might ask you for some suggestions.

    I sat down with a store manager and the department team leader. I was asked several questions about myself, my past jobs, skills and so on. The manager seemed like he was trying to put on a stern face, but the seafood team leader seemed nice. It was mostly straight forward, and we discussed the job. Then i was hired.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market in July 2014.

    Interview

    Telephone interview, Team Leader interview, and store manager interview.
    When interviewed I was asked my past experience in the seafood industry and how I would be able to help in the promotion of the Whole Foods culture. Being interviewed in the team leader in Colorado I really could have said anything even though I had a strong history and a great mentor in the meat and seafood industry. He in my opinion seemed to be on something, and everything I said he nodded and talked in broken sentences.

    Negotiation
