    Former Employee - Assistant Front End Manager in Columbia, SC

    I worked at Fresh Market part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    employee discount, flexible scheduling, good experience

    Cons

    The customers were so rude and snobby, when not enough people were scheduled, it would be very stressful, especially trying to close at night

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Fresh Market full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Like most other companies, good people exists. Deli work is mostly centered around the deli counter, so you'll socialize a lot. Encouraged to sample food. Not strict on dump/discards. Although there aren't many actual doors behind the scenes, the "open door policy" concept to ask anyone any question is upheld true at our store. Same amount of loyal customers as other grocery stores, but usually a more positive interaction than negative rants. Managers have bonus incentives to not give overtime, so full timers can expect exactly 40 hours a week. There may be a Xmas bonus of full time staffs.

    Cons

    "Deli" work includes other job titles, such as dishwasher and cook. These are separate jobs at other retails, like Walmart, Kroger, and Whole Foods. The amount of work and the expectation of fulfilling "premium service" is not practical. Managers usually only stay until 5pm, so you better get along with whomever you're stuck with for the rest of the day. Few of my coworkers have worked in restaurants before as a server or assistant cook like a decade ago. Only managers *might* have food handler's license. Safety/sanitary levels are below or at minimum levels due to a combination of too many tasks and being skimpy on proper equipment (good gloves that will keep us safe are only presented when the regional manager vists, "knife cutting gloves" that is required to use is not available, only one rag/towel is used per day... this should be per shift and as needed to be replaced). Only hire bottom tiered positions as part time and give them vague hope of converting full time. Store transitions are easier than changing positions or department within one store.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Fresh Market part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I actually applied because of the family-like feel of this place. It is small and many of the people working there have been there for over a decade. I had been shopping there for a while and many of the employees knew me.

    Cons

    Communication was ineffective and problematic. When problems occurred because expectations weren't clearly communicated, blame was placed on me. The biggest problem I experienced was that I was threatened with not getting paid for shifts I had already worked. I was fully paid but I felt the use of that as a threat was inappropriate and unprofessional.

    Current Employee - Bulk Specialist in Raleigh, NC

    I have been working at Fresh Market full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Appealing, attractive environment and generally nice people

    Cons

    The pay really should be more in line with what Whole Foods provides employees. They play the same 20 or so songs in the background of the store over and over and over and over and over....
