I have been working at FreshDirect full-time (More than a year)

Pros

So many beneifts and great work environment. Everyone is really friendly and welcoming. The management is engaged with their employees and focus on being a team. Pretty impressed with the training offered for employees.

Cons

It's cold. The plant is a steady 20-40 degrees. Other than that it's not a bad place to work.

Advice to Management

spend more energy on creating a career developement program for associate to supervisor to manager.

    I worked at FreshDirect full-time

    Pros

    Great people work there within the departments (everyone gets along pretty well)

    Cons

    Upper Management
    No incentive to stay
    Benefits could be better
    No career growth or development path
    Talks about making changes more then making actual changes
    10 year old company still functioning as a start-up

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees - you have a lot of hardworking people there, make them feel like their hard work is appreciated instead of pitting them up against each-other. This company has potential to be great but holds its self back.

    I worked at FreshDirect full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    none really, except you are away from the office so to speak when delivering and the cold warehouse

    Cons

    pay, pay pay, I made less than $9 an hour and I am adult was there for over a year, they pack in bad food even if you say something and they angry at you, mice in the warehouse, outdated yogurt and chicken constantly and they told us to deliver it, check everything if you are a customer!

    Advice to Management

    pay more, give benefits, let the workers unionize, this is ridiculous
