    Former Employee - Baker in Birmingham, AL

    I worked at Earth Fare full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Bakery is easy to work in, store discounts, nice employees, management friendly and fun to work with. Loved working there!! Hamburger and prime rib night always a success!

    Cons

    Forgot that they need to sell more food. Keep taking food away, customers going elsewhere. Bakery went from scratch made products to baking a few items now . All seems lost. Hope not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what employees do, get involved more. Fix the deli and bakeries. Not retaining employees. Corporate is not really aware of other great products out there to sell in departments. Go to food shows. Take some advice if seasoned employees who have worked elsewhere. Learn something new.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Earth Fare.

    Interview Details

    I called them 3 times before someone would talk to me. It took roughly two weeks to get an interview, where the manager basically told me it's borderline impossible to get fired from there. It sounded like a great thing to hear at first, but it's insanely frustrating when you're the only person that consistently shows up. Anyway, they make you go through two different interviews before you're officially hired, and the interviews are pretty easy. One interview is with the head of your department, and the other is with the store manager. You only get offered a position if both happen to like you. Just smile, be social, and have a tattoo, or something.

    Negotiation Details
    They asked what I thought would be fair, I told them, and they gave me $.50 less than that number.
