Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Fresh Market.

Interview

The interview was quick, and straight to the point. They asked me to tell them something about myself, asked about my previous work history, and we chatted about what I'd be doing as a cashier. I was introduced to a few employees as well, and immediately got started on the employment process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Fresh Market (Hampton, VA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interviewer had a list of questions that "corporate" hands out to ask everyone else. She was going through all of them and deciding which ones to ask and which ones she didn't want to ask. I felt like that should have been decided BEFORE the interview to avoid the awkward silence and flipping between pages.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing difficult or out of the ordinary. Basic questions about employment background, had I ever worked retail/grocery/cashier/customer service, have I ever shopped at Fresh Market, etc.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Fresh Market (Memphis, TN) in October 2014.

    Interview

    It took two months to hear from these people, but they were very nice once I arrived. Questions were pretty simple, asking if I could handle the high customer demands and about my job experience. The interview was over fairly quickly and they asked me to sign a consent form for a background check. All in all an average interview process, except for the time it took for them to contact me.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Fresh Market (Laguna Hills, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back within a few days for an in store interview. I showed up early and ready to go for my interview. I couldn't have been more disappointed. The manager just sat there with his legs and arms crossed almost as if it was an inconvenience to be interviewing me. I could tell from the very outset just based on the managers body language that even though I have 11 years retail experience as a cashier I wouldn't be hearing back from Fresh Market.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Fresh Market in May 2014.

    Interview

    My interview was really relaxed. I sat down with the store manager discussed previous employment, why my interest in the fresh market, and availability. Store manager said she would like to hire me and then we discussed what that would take. In store interview was like most interviews. However a few days later I got my official job offer via e-mail and was then flooded with online paperwork. It was very overwhelming but I read and e signed every bit of it. A few days later store manager calls again to have me come in and pick up my shirts and finalize all the paperwork. I was shocked that everything I had done online, I also then had to do in store AND was given a hard copy of everything I had read onscreen!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Fresh Market (Asheville, NC).

    Interview

    I was called about a week after putting in my application and asked to come in a couple days later. Once I showed up the manager basically spent the entire time talking about how they are a specialty store with needy customers. He asked where I used to work, what hours I was looking for, when I could start, and for me to describe a good customer experience. Then he got my social for a background check and said he would call. Then I left. Very easy interview, if it could be called that. I was offered the job a week later and I accepted.

    Filled out an application and took the personality test in the store and called the store a week later to follow-up. It's important to answer the questions how you think they want you to (don't say you would ever even think about taking money from the register or that some people deserve bad things) Had an interview with general questions about myself and my life goals and was offered the job on the spot.
