    Pros

    fairly easy going very understanding of scheduling issues

    Cons

    getting a raise is difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give managers some flexibility when it comes to marketing the upper management sometimes gives you the feeling that they think you are not very smart by some of the answers you get when you ask about the logic behind their logic

    I have been working at The Fresh Market

    Pros

    Most of the pros come from the cons. Every employee realizes within 30 days (or sooner) where they stand while working at the Fresh Market, that means most employees at the store level will look out for one another. The pay is middle of the road. Most of the management is very easy going with the employees and will work with them.

    Cons

    Corporate, corporate, corporate. No one at the Greenboro corp office gives a hoot about the store employees. We are the scapegoats to their mistakes. They change the handbook so often, you'd think the federal government was in charge. It is impossible to think on corporates level, no one is that stupid. If you need to call them about anything, be prepared to be spoken to like a child. No respect is shown. I don't believe anyone at corporate has EVER worked for retail before. If sales are down, cut hours!!! At 6pm, the store has about 11 employees working in it. If a customer asks an employee about an item or service, we have to make up an answer because corporate doesn't have a answer. I'm surprised this company still operates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This will and has fallen on deaf ears: Listen to your employees, we have a firm grasp of what we are doing and the knowledge to make it happen. Increase the rates of pay. You have people that know more than their job dictates and make $8 an hour.
