    It depends on the situation. You will be interviewed by the hiring manager and in my store the manager would rant for an hour straight and you would be hired right after.

    Clerk Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at The Fresh Market (Southern Pines, NC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    My experience was frustrating. I stopped in three times to meet the store manager to say, "hi," and let him know of my interest in working at Fresh Market. This was suggested to me by employees working there I was speaking with. The first two times my information was taken (over the last month) and told I would get a phone call. I mentioned I had applied for a position via the corporate website. I was told there are problems with jobs being posted that don't exist. Stopped in again today, after sending in an application online for a position at a store in my town this past weekend. Store manager (different one than I had spoken to before) told me that they (local stores) have no control over the process. Corporate just sends them resumes. I've applied twice, and haven't been able to get anyone to talk to me. According to the website, positions are open in the store in my town. Starting to feel that age-ism is the issue with Fresh Market.
