I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at The Fresh Market in January 2014.

Interview Details – Applied several months before store opened.Once the initial interview took place, the process took exactly a week. (they were interviewing 300 other candidates) Attended open house and was offered second interview. At second interview, accepted offer for employment and negotiated salary, completed hiring paperwork. Easy process, just lengthy due to construction of new location. They are very customer service oriented, you should know what the fresh market is all about before the interview.

Produce Clerk
Miami, FL

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Fresh Market in November 2013.

Interview Details – Wait 2 days to call. Then another 2 days for interview. After interview, over a week wait until they call you back because of a background check being done.

Interview Question – The overall wait time is absurd just to hear back if they are going to hire you.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They took too long to get back to me

Produce Clerk Interview

Produce Clerk
Lexington-Fayette, KY

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at The Fresh Market in January 2013.

Interview Details – Walked into the store with my resume and asked to speak to the store manager. He came out about 5 minutes later, pretty serious, seemed to be thinking, "this better be good", and I basically just told him I needed a job, had similar experience and could work any time. He asked a few questions about past job experiences, nothing too hard. Hiring manager sent me paperwork via e-mail, was working the next week.

Interview Question – Give me a time where you went above and beyond to do something for a customer that gave them a positive experience.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, was pleased with conditions of the offer

Produce Clerk Interview

Produce Clerk
Marietta, GA

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Fresh Market in October 2012.

Interview Details – was contacted about a month after submitting resume/application. Some brief telephone conversations with general manager discussing how my intentions, availability, et cetera matched Fresh Market's needs.

One-on-one interview; I felt somewhat rushed due to the time (8 pm , saturday night). The assistant manager and I talked freely, then he pulled out a folder from which he asked a series of basic questions. Examples include how I would act in a specific situation, my feelings/views on theft, fraud, tardiness, et cetera.

Interview Question – Don't remember. Nothing that stands out. Some redundancy.   Answer Question
