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

Pros

(1) Upper management is very friendly and motivating
(2) Flexible scheduling. They will work with school schedule even if you're full time
(3) 20% discount

Cons

(1) Some associates are not customer focused
(2) Full time associates have to give up hours so that part timers will have enough hours

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to associates and correct them before they are set in their bad habits.

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

    Pros

    20 - 30% discount Full time

    Cons

    This is by far the worst place I have ever worked. Way to many people with some sort of title, ast manager of this or that manager of this or that. You get told to do things 3 different ways by 3 different managers so what you are doing is always being corrected by one of them. The poor general manager is on the floor stocking shelves while the store is being micro-managed out of control, to many chiefs not enough Indians. Also I would like to say that if you are in to high school type cliques and drama you will enjoy working here, if you are not in a managers clique you are made to feel like you are about to loose your job all the time, no matter how hard you work. You will have people coming up to you telling you to get transferred out of your department because it is the worst department to work in. This happens on a daily basis. I do not see a good future for this company unless they take more control of their stores and use about 50% less managers so that people actually know who they are supposed to be listening to, so that they can do their job to the best of their ability. oh one other thing the insurance they offer is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Less managers and a clear path of management so that people actually know who they are supposed to listen to and less manages buddying up and forming cliches of friends that they are in charge of, this makes good employees that are not part of the clique feel like their efforts are futile
