I have been working at Earth Fare full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I have found some of my best friends working for this company. They pay can be flexible based on your experience. 20% discount card on groceries. After one year a weeks paid vacation. For every forty hours you work you receive one sick hour.

Cons

Very bad communication. There would be coupons for free items and the way we would find out is from customers not managers. Favoritism is a huge problem. It is also alot harder to advance through the company then they let on. Half of employees bust ass to get things done while the other half slacks and does the bare minimum. The recent changes in the food service department have caused a huge drop in customers. Policies are changed way too frequently. Alot of employees are over qualified with multiple degrees including masters and phds and are stuck stocking groceries.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to your employees and communicate better!

    Pros

    The employees are great and friendly. Everyone works hard and helps out.
    The atmosphere rocks, the customers are cool, and they get to know you and you get to know them.
    There are some decent perks, like discounted lunch and discounts store wide.

    Cons

    Management isn't great.
    It's retail and they treat their employees like they don't matter.
    Poor scheduling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
