Apply online and be ready to answer questions about corporate culture aka Core Values
The team leader of the department applied comes interview you, then they take you to the store team leader, and then they call you at the end of the day to give you the yes or no.
It is a thorough process and it helps with making sure you really want to work for them. Full availability is required for most. positions.
Once you do the application you have to wait at least 2 to three weeks to receive a phone call which they'll do a phone interview first, and then they will ask you to come in for the second interview. Some may do it as a group interview with multiple people including store leadership. Or just an extra team leader. Then you can get hired right on the spot. After that you wait until they tell you when to come in to fill out paperwork and do online training courses.
Not good when you have kids running the store...

Easy going, casual
Applied for the produce department in Pasadena, CA. The interview was carried out by 3 produce managers. Mostly consist of experience I have over all in produce. Questions like what are your responsibilites in, how is your customer service, etc etc. Anything you can think of if you have experience on the position you are applying for, they have it ready to ask. I passed the first round with them and the store manager or someone high up came in for round 2. Some what same questions but more towards availability and customer service and why WFM. Final round is if they call you or not. Whoever Is reading this, don't be nervous. No luck involved, just fate. It it's meant to be it will happen, if not, brush it off and apply else where!
I remember doing one interview where they asked me questions about the company's core values. They asked me situational questions about customer service.
