I worked at The Fresh Market full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Above minimum wage - As a cashier I received plenty of breaks - Sampling different foods and interacting with customers who love gourmet foods

Cons

- A total lack of accountability on the part of management - I was harrassed by one manager and complained multiple times and the issue was never fixed - this occured at the Fresh Market in Baltimore on Quarry Lake Dr. - some of the managers are understanding but for the most part there are a lot of untrustworthy people who take advantage of people who work under them (i.e. questionable behavior, unprofessional language, and harassment)

Advice to Management

They need to follow through with complaints made by employees. I wasn't the only person who had difficulty with some of the managers and even after people complained nothing happened. The work environment was very clique-y and that's why people got away with inappropriate behavior.

    I worked at The Fresh Market full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    20% discount on products, friendly and helpful coworkers because they are in the same boat. Store management really tries hard to work with your schedule

    Cons

    Low pay rates, unresponsive or irresponsible upper management. Ridiculous hours and schedules because of ridiculous forecasts for hours vs sales

    Advice to Management

    Show more concern for the people who make your massive salaries possible.

    I have been working at The Fresh Market full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management is usually flexible with employee's schedules. The company is laid back and very friendly. Management treats all employees with respect.

    Cons

    Training is lacking at times. Many changes have/are happening and at times seems the store is left in the dark.
