I have been working at The Fresh Market full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Management is usually flexible with employee's schedules. The company is laid back and very friendly. Management treats all employees with respect.

Cons

Training is lacking at times. Many changes have/are happening and at times seems the store is left in the dark.

    Pros

    * You get a 20% discount off most items
    * Great staff, I love the people I work with.
    * They give a 2% raise after your first 90 days then give you about .25 raise annually.
    * You get a holiday bonus towards the end of the year
    * Not boring, there is always something to do
    * They are extremely flexible when it comes to scheduling
    * Good quality foods
    * Tell management what you want and they will do their best to satisfy you
    * Nice size company, they are expanding all over the United States.

    Cons

    * It's tricky to get good hours if you're part time
    * Customers can be a pain
    * Sometimes there is not enough help
    * Nearly impossible to get days off before major holidays
    * Very disorganized backroom, it's nearly impossible to find anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management overall does a decent job of running the store, but they should listen more to what their employees have to say.

    I worked at The Fresh Market full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great concept... Great customers. That is it. If you are looking for a 2-4 year career go for it

    Cons

    Turnover high in all levels of management. 75 new store managers out of 124 stores were not running a store 12 months ago. A lot of finger pointing. Can't compete,with whole foods head on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit finger pointing. Everyone blames each other, fires people at will, that is your current plan to compete against whole foods and wegmans. Focus your attention on how to compete, work as a team, and quit blaming the other guy.
