Application

I applied online – interviewed at The Fresh Market (Fayetteville, NC).

Interview

Went to the open interview at a local hotel, however I had a interview scheduled. After wandering around the hotel I finally found where the interviews were being held. I checked in and then went into a room and waited for my interviewer. Two minutes later I met my interviewer and went into another room where multiple interviews were being held. We sat down and talked for 20 to 30 mins about the description of the job, what to expect, when the store will be opening, my job experience and my availability. It was a smooth interview. The interviewer said that I will not know if I got the job or not until this coming week or next .. So hopefully I got it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Fresh Market.

    Interview

    After applying, I received an email where I was able to schedule an interview for the new location opening near me. Before the interview, I received a call to schedule an earlier interview which I did. I arrived early to the interview and when called, proceeded to have the interview. It was very causal, which I should have expected but I was not and it threw me off. I was told that the position that I was applying for had been pretty much filled but that they would consider me for other positions that were still open. After discussing possible fits, we had final questions from myself and the interviewer. I was told that I would receive a call by a certain date, whether I got the position or not, and to expect it. The date came and went and no call or even email came. I was very disappointed in their lack of follow through. Also the interview was extremely short, as in I arrived 15 minutes early, waited for almost 7-8, and finished the interview, included my list of questions for them, a few minutes after when I was supposed to the arrived to the interview. Very disappointing but it made it much easier to continue the job search after their lack of communication.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Fresh Market in October 2014.

    Interview

    A little over two months after applying, I was called on a Thursday evening for a Saturday morning interview. When I got to the interview I was asked my pay range. Using the numbers from Glassdoor.com I asked for $14 an hour. I was told the position did not pay this amount any where in the country that he was aware of. Also told that most likely nothing paid over $10 an hour. Then, I was told the position wasn't available. When I got home to write this review the position is still listed on the internet as open.
