    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Whole Foods Market in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for Whole Foods in Clearwater. The same day I get a call from Whole Foods. Over the phone they asked me some basic questions about my employment history. They invited me to come in for a group interview for 2 hours the week after. First saw a presentation, filled out an availability sheet, introduce ourselves, say what our favorite foods were and why Whole Foods. Then we were divided into groups a couple of times. First we did a skit, then we did a 30 second commercial related to the core values. I thought it was challenging because they wanted to see how we interact. At the end, I told the team leaders that I was very interested in working for Whole Foods and that I would like a chance there. They told us to keep checking for our emails from them. A couple of days later, I received an email congratulating and welcoming me aboard the team. First, we had to complete the online paper work like for background checks, etc. Then we had to schedule a post offer employment test to see we can lift up to 50 lb., push and pull a cart with weights in it, etc After that if we pass that, we found out when the start date is as soon as Whole Foods has the results. I know I did great. Now I have to stay positive and see how things go.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orland Park, IL (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Whole Foods Market in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a phone call few days after applying. One of the ATL's asked me some basic questions regarding the company (what they do, what they stand behind etc., do I know what organic means) and scheduled an interview.

    Interview went pretty smooth. I dressed pretty casual (jeans and button up). I was told to wait at the in store cafeteria. After a few minutes an ATL came down to escort me to the place we'd be conducting interview. We chatted a bit on the way there. I was interviewed by a TL and the ATL that escorted me. They asked me about my life, where I'm headed, what do I like doing, afterwards they asked me about the company in general and my experience in retail. Overall a very relaxed interview that went really stress free.

    Got a call from them a few days later offering me the position. Had to come in to sign some paperwork regarding background check and was e-mailed details of training to come.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Whole Foods Market in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very matter-of-fact: I applied online via the Whole Foods website, and received a call from the Team Leader two days later asking me a few preliminary questions. He then invited me an in-person interview, which was held two days later. He and the Store Manager interviewed me together, and the questions were very much "standard interview" questions: "tell me about yourself", "where do you see yourself in five years", "what are your greatest strengths/weaknesses", etc. The interview lasted about 15-20 minutes, and I was told they'd get back to me within a couple of days. The Store Manager called me only a few hours later and offered me the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a conflict you've had with a co-worker, and explain how you resolved it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation; they just offered the job to me, and told me what the wage would be. Since it was in line with what I was expecting, I accepted.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview Details

    I went to a whole foods job fair and interviewed with 2 of the team leaders. It was very casual and I felt at ease. After about two weeks of waiting for them to get my background check sorted, I received a call and went to an orientation where they talked about welcoming everyone on board.
    After reading some of the reviews on here, I was certain I'd get asked weird questions but maybe since I was hired out of a job fair they forewent that.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Whole Foods Market.

    Interview Details

    Getting this job was fairly easy. Many people went out of their way to contact the team leaders before the interview, which from what I've heard helped, but I did not do that. I had previous experience working in food, so they just called me up and went through a very relaxed interview and hired me immediately.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing too difficult, all very typical interview questions: greatest strength and weakness, one problem you solved and how, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very short. They asked what I wanted to get paid, and they agreed.
