I have been working at The Fresh Market part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company provides pretty good training for beginner and is willing to help you advance if you show initiative. You have to be willing to work hard and stand out. Plus you get 20 percent off most goods in the store.

Cons

Hours can be tricky, they do it based on sales so sometimes the store can be understaffed. Getting there fulltime can be tough.
Corporate can be a pain.

Advice to Management

Corporate really needs to listen to store employees, especially department heads. They know the store and what sells more, so listen and let them work independently.

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

    Pros

    The camaraderie between workers is unparallelled in the grocery industry.

    The products offered are of the best quality... especially in the meat/seafood department and the produce department.

    The gross profit margin is really high which allows for product loss in order to offer only the best to our customers.

    The customers are generally pleased with the products offered and quality of service which makes them pleasant.

    Cons

    There's a lack of incentivized training company-wide.

    The corporate office has a tendency to take more control than is sometimes comfortable to the department heads and specialists.

    The pay-scale isn't very competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure store management passes information along to the department heads and specialists.

    Pros

    None unless working 13 hours a week will help you make any money. A complete joke of a business.

    Cons

    Everything. Craig should go lock himself in his car. HORRIBLE place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Send your management to Whole Foods school. Learn how the BIG boys do it. Frankly, you do not have a clue.
