    Grocery Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    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.

    Store Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Fresh Market (Raleigh, NC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview then live interview with regional manager. Phone interview went great and was passed on immediately to 2nd interview. Regional manager went "unscripted" and asked no questions, more of a get to know me and talked a lot about the position, specific store needs and the company. I felt the interview went great and he said he would contact me and let me know the next day about his decision. No call came the next day. I called him back the following day around 2pm and he stated that the recruiter (the phone interview) was supposed to send me something and they had gone a different route. Very poor business ethics and a waste of my time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Fresh Market (The Villages, FL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    One of the hiring managers called me and set up the interview for the next day, but he already seemed to have wanted to hire me. By the time I got to the interview, he basically told me to sign a thing and I could start working, but he asked me a few standard questions first. The bakery manager sat in and answered my questions as well. Very basic, easy stuff. The whole process took about 10-15 minutes
