Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

Interview

The interview was difficult. A senior level management member questioned me about the company's values, reasons for founding, what sets them apart, etc. He was very respectful and definitely expected a thorough response. He asked me to clarify and elaborate a few times.

    I applied online. About a day later I got a call and email from the department team leader asking me to come in for a one on one interview in 2 days. She was super nice and easy to talk to. She had a list of set questions about my customer service experience and problem solving. I met with the store team leader right afterwards and was offered the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Thornton, CO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Two weeks after submitting application, was called for interview. Very helpful recruitment letter sent with a description of the interview process and members of the interview panel. I was also asked to complete an assessment; they provided a link. The assessment contained three parts: a personality test, a typing test, and an excel test. I realized I needed to prepare by taking online sample tests first for the typing and Excel portions. I spent a day reviewing Excel trainings online and practicing. The questions on the review, however, were multiple choice, not hands-on in Excel. I highly recommend people take the time to practice Excel tables and know ribbon tabs and the corresponding functions in those tabs.

    Interview

    Wonderfully helpful in being specific of what I should bring. Was interviewed by only the store director. Usually it is done by a panel process in other stores. After 30 days the "team" voted to keep me as a team member.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Glen Mills, PA).

    Interview

    I attended a group interview. There were several applicants and team leaders from all departments were present. Smaller groups were made and everybody got to meet with each leader. There were also group activities and "ice breakers." Took a couple of hours, got a lunch voucher to buy something from the store, and some snacks were provided.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    My family member knew the manager of the store so i didn't really have to interview. not to kill people's hopes of working there but it really does carry a cult vibe. my advise to get chummy with someone already working there to get a good word in. still, i had customer service experience at another grocery so I'm sure that helped as well.

    Group interview with around 40 others. We were grouped into teams of 4-5 interviewees. Each person stood up for a quick introduction of themselves. Then, there was a 10-minute group assignment to create a 2-minute presentation on Whole Foods' values. Finally, there were two 10-minute sessions with department team leaders to have a Q&A with interested applicants.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted an application online, was called within a week to schedule an interview. Arrived for the interview and spoke with a department manager and store manager. Stumbled over a few answers but was still offered the job. Interview took place in the dining area of the store. The process itself was fairly simple and seemed to just be checking to make sure I could talk to people and was honest and ready to work.
