Team Leader Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

Interview

It's different than any other company if your applying for any leadership position. They expect you to do your "Due Diligence"- visit several stores and make observations and talk to employees about the job you are applying for. Also instead of a first and second interview with different people they set you up for a panel interview which will have 4-10 people all asking you questions at the same time which can be a little intimidating. Also expect the process to take a while. This is a company that does not move quickly. If applying for a position at a specific store it is best to call the store and make sure they are actually interviewing and hiring for that position because they will leave job postings on the website and never respond to them

Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    You have to spend hours going around to the store you applied at. They want you to talk to other team leaders and team members. You have to do an action plan and resume. The actual interview was on a panel of 8. Then you wait until they contact you to see if you have the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    I've been in the retail industry for about 18 years. I've never experienced an interview process like Whole Foods! It took about two weeks. There was an initial interview. Then a research phase in which I contacted other Team Leaders who I basically got to pick their brains and get advice from. I also had to write a 30-60-90 day business plan. Then a final panel interview.

    Applied online. Received a phone call from Associate Store Team Leader and had a 20 minute phone interview. Was then asked to come in for an in-person interview a few days later. Had 7 people on my panel interview, which was a little nerve-racking.
