Careers Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply for a job at Whole Foods Market?
We accept applications through our online Career Center, or in person at individual stores. Sometimes we may advertise positions in newspapers or on other recruitment websites.
Can you explain the application process?
In the search box on any Careers section page, select the state you would like to work in. Once there, you will be presented with a listing of stores where you choose whichever location you are interested in. You can review the job listings, and click into any of the jobs for more details about the position. If you would like to apply for the position, click on "Apply Online Now" link.
At that point, if you have applied to a job with Whole Foods Market previously, you can enter your login and password to use your previously saved information. If you do not remember them, you can use the password reminder below the login box to request your information via e-mail.
If you do not have a login and password, you can build your profile and complete the application by clicking the link in the "New Candidate" section. The first step will be to create your basic profile and upload a resume. Once that is completed, you will be presented with the Whole Foods Market Application, and then job specific questions. Please be sure to continue this process until you receive a message acknowledging your application's submission to be sure your candidacy will be considered.
You may also apply in person at your location of choice. Most locations have an application kiosk for you to apply on-line through the same process as described above. If the location does not have an application kiosk, please check with Customer Service for a paper application.

My computer crashed when I was applying. Do I need to begin the process again?

You should go to our career page and login to your profile with the login and password you used when creating your profile. Once you are logged in, click on the "View My Past Submittals" link. If you see the job you applied for, than your application was successful, and we can contact you if we need more information.

Can I apply even if there isn't a specific position currently available that is of interest to me?
Yes, you can submit a profile that will be entered in our database. However, we also encourage you to check back often, as our job openings are updated on a regular basis.
