    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whole Foods Market (United States)

    Interview

    Due to COVID, the interview was done over the phone and lasted for 15 minutes at the most. You rarely talk about yourself since they only go over the job description and your availability. They hire based on the assessment they give you a couple days prior, so the "interview" didn't really feel like an interview but rather a call to offer the job.
    Interview

    What's your availability? And any questions you have for the interviewer.
