We get over 1.5 million applications per year. See what our recruiters have to say about how to stand out among the crowd.
Go the extra mile and send us a cover letter. Not only do resumes with cover letters stand out, but our hiring managers appreciate them because they make your application more personal.
Take the time to find the 2-5 jobs that really excite you. Someone who casts a wide net and applies for 5+ jobs is far less appealing than seeing someone that's focused on what they want.
Tailor your resume to the job you want. Taking the time to tailor your resume to a specific job goes a long way.

(Note: The process may change depending on the role, but this is the general process we follow.)
A Message For You
One of our recruiters will reach out via email to let you know they got your application. They'll give you timelines and tips to get you ready for the next step.
Talk to Your Recruiter
Your recruiter will schedule a quick, informal 15 minute phone call for you to ask questions and tell us about yourself.
Meet Your Manager
Depending on your role, you’ll talk to your potential manager on-site or over the phone for a more in-depth conversation about the role.
The panel is a long-standing tradition since the first Whole Foods Market. You'll speak to a group of your peers in a single interview, and the panel decides whom to hire.
If you make it through our process, congratulations! You're part of the Whole Foods Market team. Our acceptance rate is lower than even Harvard University, so it's no small feat to join. You'll get a phone call with the good news, followed by an email with all the details on how to start your new career with us.
Here, your career is what makes you happy. If happiness is moving up to management, you can. If happiness is moving to different departments, or even switching your entire career focus, you can. The path at corporate is diverse, and we give you the training and support to get you where you want to be.
