    I applied online – interviewed at The Fresh Market.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on snagajob. After about three or four weeks I got a call back from a manager asking for an interview. I came in for my interview that week. The assistant manager took me to an office and asked me some standard interview questions. After that she told me to come in for a orientation a week or two later. We were paid for the orientation which lasted a couple hours. Basically they just told us about company policies, dress code, etc. We had a tour of the store and met our department managers/fellow employees. We received our uniforms.

    Interview Questions
    • She asked me standard interview questions like "tell me about yourself", "what is your work experience", "why do you want to work for the Fresh Market", etc.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Fresh Market.

    Interview Details

    Took a month to get a call after applying online. Interview went about as expected. They asked why I wanted to work for the fresh market, asked about skills and experience and how much I was looking to make . They would have had me do a cutting test but it never came to that because they told me their max pay was well below what I was asking.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    The max pay rate was very low for an experienced cutter , almost $7/hour less than I had been making elsewhere

    I applied online – interviewed at The Fresh Market.

    Interview Details

    Filled out online application and got a call back for an interview some days later. I came in and it was just me and the store manager in the front office and he asked the questions and I answered. I remember being nervous but it wasn't so bad. At the end he thanked me and said I should hear back from him at a certain time and if I didn't then I should call him back. When that time came I didn't hear from him so I called him and he told me I got the job.
