    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

    Assistant Deli Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Fresh Market in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    It is pretty sad to say, I was called by a manager for an interview on a particular day. However, I was still employed with another company so, I told him I was working but can come another day. He told me, that he would have to look into a rescheduled date and time. I called back because I never heard from the manager. I decided to leave my phone number but he took the unprofessionalism route by not returning my phone calls. So, my final decision is that I will never call, apply or shop for The Fresh Market. NEVER!!!!

    Candy/Coffee Specialist Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
