I have been working at Fresh and Easy full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Fresh and Easy offers great benefits with many advancement opportunities. I was able to go from an entry level position to store manager in 4 years. District managers and regional directors work with you to help you develop and reach your career goals. Unique experience with board of directors, I've shook hands and spoken with most face to face. Great work place atmosphere.

Cons

It's retail, so you have all the cons that go with that. Managers at Fresh and Easy actually partake in the day to day labor in stores as well as other management tasks. Work schedule varies from week to week as well as working holidays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Would like to be offered stock options in future.

    I worked at Fresh and Easy full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, very organized work environment, awesome initial training. The store is just pleasant to work in and management is fairly approachable. Decent benefits and paid vacation time is a plus.

    Cons

    Being a temp was lame because it is a great place to work. Coworkers were catty at times, and there was favoritism according to appearance. The out of city training was a fiasco.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to look past appearance, and organize long distance training better.

    Pros

    Great associates, good benefits, medical, dental and vison.

    Cons

    I recently resigned from F&E due to low compensation and reduction in workforce. When I began with F&E in 2007, as a Team Leader it had so much promise. Fast forward 5yrs later and now you have a company, that is lost in the peril of there own design. The upper brass (Coporate) truly has no idea on how to remedy F&E bleeding financial losses to date. The once great concept of bringing wholsesome fresh healthy affordable food. Has turned into nightmarish laughing stock of the grocery industry. With companies such as Walmart, Aldi's, The Fresh Market and host of others prepared to do business by the end of 2012. It would be in F&E best future intrest. To consider withdrawing from this industry alltogether. Save face, pull out, go back to the UK. What was once a great idea. Is now the biggest joke in the grocery industry.!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out while you still have some respect and dignity left. The longer you continue, the worser it's going to get.
