I worked at The Fresh Market full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Co-workers were supportive and eager to help each other out in a crunch.

Cons

Pay did not match with the amount of work and responsibility. Large amount of stress due to the company growing and not enough employees to support workload. Management in the dept. was like a revolving door and there was not any consistency.

Advice to Management

Employees need to be compensated properly for there to be positivity and enjoyment in the workplace. The department that I worked in was real stressful and that was one of the reasons that I had sought out for other employment.

    I have been working at The Fresh Market full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interacting with customers is a plus. While some can be demanding it is a good atmosphere.

    Cons

    Destructive issues with employees go unchecked while good employees are treated with disregard.

    Advice to Management

    Actually BE leaders and encourage the employees who are actively trying to make a difference despite the less than competitive wages. Address the employees who consistently create trouble and don't be afraid to actually fire people for taking advantage of the policies or who are insubordinate. You are going to be left with sub-par employees because the good workers will leave to avoid feeling that they are not only uncompensated, but unappreciated as well.

    Pros

    20% discount - Discount sometimes higher throughout the year (especially around end of year holidays); Nice co-workers; Good product

    Cons

    Passive/Aggressive management style; Salary barely above "living wage"; Low raises; No accountability; Horribly understaffed; Actual job duties are often different from what is listed on website; So much multitasking required to the point of not being able to finish any one task completely and/or even get to core duties; Poor scheduling tactics; No Human Resources representation; Equipment often breaks and not readily repaired; Focus on profit only

    Advice to Management

    Management should be thankful that there is no direct competition in the immediate area...
