    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Fresh Market.

    Interview

    Lengthy interview process. Applied online. Took two / three online assessments after receiving email with links. Assessments are more difficult than expected. Then scheduled phone interview which lasted approximately 45 minutes. Shortly thereafter scheduled 1:1 with district manager. Basic scripted questions. Follow up 1:1 with regional manager. Entire process took 2 - 3 months.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Fresh Market (Indianapolis, IN) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online, went through an initial assessment and was then asked to complete a 2nd assessment. I was contacted by the recruiter a couple of days later who said I did well on the assessment and asked me a few questions, mostly about my management experience and willingness to relocate. I then went into the store and introduced myself to the Store Manager before being called for an interview, which I never was. Either they were not satisfied that my management experience extended to 7 employees, they got a bad reference, or they didn't like my taking initiative to meet the staff. Either way, the recruiter was very rude and would not let me talk. She tried to tell me what my experiences were instead of letting me explain my work history.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Fresh Market (Hilton Head Island, SC) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Terribly long interview cycle. You wait weeks between interviews. Took 2 hard assessment tests and two interviews, one with HR guy then District Manager. Only had 1 more to go with Regional VP when I got the Dear John letter saying NO GO. Very disappointing and 8 weeks out of my life!
