    Applied for the position online and received a call for an interview the same day. Had the interview two days later with who I assume to be the manager. It was very casual. I had to call a few days later and was offered the job. I was told that I would receive an email about a background check in a few days but never did. When I called about the background check, I was put on hold for 30 minutes.

    Grocery Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at The Fresh Market.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't much like any I have done before. After the normal question of tell me about your work experience and education, the interviewer asked about what I like to do in my free time, how well I can work with a vast majority senior citizen clientele, and what I did in college and high school. It was super relaxed and we had enjoyable small talk for the last 10 or so minutes of the interview. I told her what I expect to be paid (from the ranges on glassdoor) and she negotiated with me which was a welcome experience from other jobs. She didn't try lowballing me and was very pleasant.
