    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Fresh Market.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter to set-up a phone interview. Then had to complete 2 online assesments - first one was pretty generic, what would you do in this situation, etc. Second one involved some basic math questions. Next, had face-to-face interview with District Manager. Finally had face-to-face interview with Regional Director. Whole process took about 2 weeks to complete.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hampton, VA
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Baker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Fresh Market.

    Interview Details

    Went to an open house, and was interviewed by someone that took my preliminary information. This lead to a second interview for apposition that would have been for a grand opening of a new store. They were balking at paying more than about 11-13 per hour, surprisingly taking into consideration the shifts and hours necessary to get them up and running. On the second interview, the couple of guys in ops that sat me down and talked it over with me, to be honest had an aura of complacency and arrogance. I knew the interview was heading south when they alluded to the effect it would be very much of just a drone job, no creativity, no input on ramping it up and being better...fresh market is a whole foods wannabe, they talk that talk, but they can't walk that walk.
