I have been working at Earth Fare full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I have found some of my best friends working for this company. They pay can be flexible based on your experience. 20% discount card on groceries. After one year a weeks paid vacation. For every forty hours you work you receive one sick hour.

Cons

Very bad communication. There would be coupons for free items and the way we would find out is from customers not managers. Favoritism is a huge problem. It is also alot harder to advance through the company then they let on. Half of employees bust ass to get things done while the other half slacks and does the bare minimum. The recent changes in the food service department have caused a huge drop in customers. Policies are changed way too frequently. Alot of employees are over qualified with multiple degrees including masters and phds and are stuck stocking groceries.

Advice to Management

listen to your employees and communicate better!

    I worked at Earth Fare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are great and friendly. Everyone works hard and helps out.
    The atmosphere rocks, the customers are cool, and they get to know you and you get to know them.
    There are some decent perks, like discounted lunch and discounts store wide.

    Cons

    Management isn't great.
    It's retail and they treat their employees like they don't matter.
    Poor scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about your employees.

    Pros

    Discount on food
    insane coupons that you can double up on
    good eats
    co-workers

    Cons

    Apparently there is no "I have a life". If you have become employed by earth fare there is no outside world. You are required to work when your manager tells you and your personal life needs to be put on hold. Also mangers have become a little too close with their employees, there seems to be no separation of personal attachments to hired employees (i.e. former friendships prior to working at earth fare) Hours are slashed every week. The words "we're all in this together" do not apply to this store. Hard work is greatly under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are not there to pick up the slack when other people quit. Not every employee has nothing better to do than work at earth fare. Consistent schedules make for happier employees and a happier work environment. Appreciate the good employees, they're always picking up after your "favorites"
