I worked at The Fresh Market full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

In the Deli, it was pretty chill. Not much drama, everyone did what they were there to do and we were good. Pay was ok, I made $8.50 starting out, and I got a .25 raise within 3 months.

Cons

Management ruled like an iron fist. There were some managers that I really liked, some that I didn't. But that is retail for you.

Advice to Management

Relax on your employees a bit

    Pros

    Well....its hard to say exactly what the pros are as there were not a lot. The 20% discount on groceries is nice.

    Cons

    Uneducated staff, meager pay, hours, way to much paperwork. 5 am inventories are just brutal. Not exactly stressful but it finds ways to be so.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at The Fresh Market full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the customers are very nice, we get to know the regulars. I enjoy working with flowers.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible for what you are asked to do. The managers expect that you always drop everything in your personal life for work. No overtime, even if you work six or seven days a week. i have worked seventeen days straight without even a thank you or good job. Chinese overtime for upper management is ridiculous, those people give the store everything they have and more. You get written up for minor offenses if you want to take your paid vacation time. No opportunities for advancement if you are good at your current job.

    Advice to Management

    Be easier on the store workers. We try really hard to do everything you ask but we are not mind readers. There is no standard way to do our jobs. It just depends on what manager you have and how they like things, so you can do a task one way for three years then management changes and you are expected to learn a whole new way to do your job.
