Seafood Team Member Interview

Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Dallas, TX) in December 2013.

    Interview

    One interview with STL. It was easy since I had worked there before. Lasted about 25 mins. Very casual. Go to wholefoods.com and select career's. From there you'll be able to find and apply for any job at whole foods that you may be interested in. If your application meets the specific requirements of the job, then someone will contact you to come in for a screening. And if you pass that you'll be well on your way to a job at Whole Foods. Just ask Whole Food's Market if they think 8 out of 10 of their employee's are quiting do to the "nature of the environment." Especially when you consider the feedback of exit interviews taken from those you have left WFM. Whole Foods is not your typical establishment. Anyone who has worked there knows that. 80 percent is not average. That percentage includes, corporate, leadership, and TM. I work in Leadship, and feel as do my other leadship brothers and sisters do, that we {whole foods market} can do better to ensure the happiness, and success of our team members.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Boston, MA) in September 2008.

    Interview

    Very straight forward interview process. I was only asked a few questions about my previous experience and then we went right into salary negotiations.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no questions that I considered unexpected. Just be sure to elaborate on your customer service and hospitality experiences.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very brief negotiation phase. They start everyone at a minimum of $10/hr., but I requested $12 given my previous experience. They gave it to me without any hesitation...I should have asked for $14!
