    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great health care plan, opportunity to grow within the company is high if you are a hard-working individual, great Team member discount.

    Cons

    It is unfortunate that the best and healthiest grocer in America is becoming more corporate loosing the original core values and really caring for people and high-quality foods.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep core values that were set up when the store was founded by John Mackey. Whole Foods is not what it was years ago and we want WFM to only become better and better not the other way around. Booh to Jana Partners!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview

    First received a pre-screening phone call from HR. Then got an email asking me in for an interview. Team leader and associate team leader interviewed me. Asked me standard interview questions and about keywords and what I knew about them such as gluten free, gmo, organic, omega 3 and so on.
