    Interview

    Applied Online. Phone interview a few days later. First Interview 1-1 with Team Leader a few days later I got a follow up call for a second interview with the department manager. Asked a lot of the same questions in both interviews. Pretty much just want to see that you can add to the team and be a productive employee.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Dallas, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was a 3 step interview process. The first interview was basically a pre-screening phone call where they ask some basic questions to get an idea about your personality if you sound like you'd be a fit for WF. Second interview was scheduled 5 days after pre-screen, which was a 1 on 1 with the Team Leader for the department. It was about 30 minutes long, pretty straightforward, and you are asked typical interview questions.

    Third interview was held immediately after the second, with the Team Leader and store's ATL. Same questions, but this one felt more like they were trying to get to know me as a person, and see if I was the kind of personality that would mesh well with other Team Members and a fit for WF values.Got a call an hour after the third interview saying I was chosen for the job.

    Overall, the interview process was much more personal than any other I've had in the past. It felt like more of a conversation than a screening process.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Raleigh, NC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I received an email two days after I applied online, asking to meet in person a the store for an interview with the Specialty Team Leader.
    Arrived at the interview I was asked to tell my story, to describe my strength in wine, beer and cheese, and my weekly availability. At the end of the interview I had to meet the store manager and answer to his questions.
    After meeting the store manager I was extended a conditional offer (background check needed).
    The interview was very friendly and frank, but still professional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Princeton, NJ) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was fast and easy. We sat in the demo kitchen area so that it was quiet. interviewer was friendly and asked if I would like to interview with the team leader that day or another day. Of course I said I was ready right then. May have been so fast because they needed help and I had previous experience, either way it was not at all stressful.
