The work is easy and keeps me very busy throughout the day, however, the associates can be a bit whiny.

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

Pros

(1) Upper management is very friendly and motivating
(2) Flexible scheduling. They will work with school schedule even if you're full time
(3) 20% discount

Cons

(1) Some associates are not customer focused
(2) Full time associates have to give up hours so that part timers will have enough hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to associates and correct them before they are set in their bad habits.

    Pros

    Great Products, but it ends about there.

    Cons

    - No job stability what so ever, especially for management.
    - Completely outrageous expectations.
    - You will be promised 45 hour work weeks, time off, excellent training and support. They will preach work life balance but its all just a sale to get another body in the door to work 12 to 14 hour day and, 6 day work weeks.
    - You will be threatened to come in on your days off to finish unrealistic and unreasonable workloads.
    - You will be forced to work with understaffed shifts and be prepared to work every job in the store for half your shift to cover their unrealistic labor models.
    - Archaic Inventory management and ordering system
    - Home Office is living in a fantasy land and completely ignores their senior field managements complete disregard for company policy
    - Compared to every company I have worked for in my life this one is utterly the worst, I am done with retail after this company and am changing my career pursuits mid life thanks to this horrid company
    - Also the open door policy is a sham, there is no separation between field and HR. The same people who handle your open door and ethics issues are the same people who work with your field management in all HR aspects
    - Favoritism and ethical issues are rampant in this company's field management
    - Field management salary completely uncompetitive past assistant store management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Bring in a third party HR group to handle open door and ethical issues.
    - In-depth investigation by a third party on senior field management
    - Enforcing home office policies on senior field management
    - Modernize the inventory and order systems
    - Modernize the network
    Just for starters
