FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If I applied for a position with Whole Foods Market before, will my information be saved?
That depends on when you applied for a position last. Whole Foods Market adopted a new recruiting system on December 12, 2016, and only information that has been entered since that date has been saved. Therefore, if you saved your login and password PRIOR to 12/12/16, you will need to create a new profile following the process detailed below. If you created your login and password on 12/12/16 or after, your last submitted profile will be saved in the system until the next time you log in.

Do I need to create a login and password?
You do not need to create a login to search for positions, but you will need to create a login and password to apply for a position. This makes it easier for you to log in again in the future and for our recruiters to locate you once you have applied.
How do I check the status of jobs I have applied for?
- Select “Sign In” in the upper-right corner of the Career page. (Or, if already logged in, click the cloud icon next to your email address.)
- Log in with your email and password.
- Under My Applications, you will see a list of all of the positions you have applied for and their current review status.
Can I apply for a job even if there isn't a position currently available that is of interest to me?
Unfortunately no; however, we encourage you to check back often, as our job openings are updated on a regular basis.
Can I apply for a position on a mobile device?
Yes. You can use your mobile device’s web browser to search for and apply to positions on our Careers website. It will be more time consuming because of the size of the screen, but it is possible.
I am already a Whole Foods Team Member looking to advance my career. Should I apply here as well?
To save time and effort, current WFM Team Members should only apply through the desktop or mobile versions of Workday. You can save yourself a lot of time, too, if you have already filled out your Team Member Talent Profile.
What if I was referred to a position by a current Whole Foods Team Member?
If a current WFM Team Member has referred you for a position, you will receive an email with a link to the job description. You may apply using that link after signing in with your email and password. You can still apply for the job by searching for it without the emailed link, but your application will not contain the Team Member’s name attached as a referral.
