    Pros

    Exciting and Fun Business. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    WAY TOO MANY CHANGES, No Work-Life Balance. Too many hours, Too Many nights and weekends for Managers

    Advice to Management

    Get back to actually caring about your people. Don't just tell them they are important one day and the next day, make them work nights and weekends.

    Pros

    The employees were really nice. It felt like a little family, but people come and go. They worked around my schedule for the most part.

    Cons

    The pay was not very good. When you would get a raise it would be a little one. They don't like it when you call out sick and you have to have a doctor's note. The management switched around a lot so I had to get used to different managers and their management styles.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is it ease up a bit when someone is sick. They need to be a little more understanding and compassionate.

    Pros

    I love my coworkers and my customer. My location at Great Neck is awesome. It is a local company and that is important.

    Cons

    THERE ARE NO BENEFITS!!! Unfortunately Farm Fresh has no real Full Time positions available so that means no benefits. It also means you are NOT guaranteed 40 hours a week. So that can really mess with your wallet.

    Advice to Management

    You really need full time positions. Let people use there strengths and give them a chance to better your company.

    You may have to occasionally split shifts with other workers, messing up the funds. And overnight can be grueling
