    I worked at Fresh & Co full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You work get paid, food is fresh. Meet interesting customers

    Cons

    There is a heavy negative work vibe. Management disrespectful to employees, show no appreciation. Send home when slow, Overwork when busy, No benefits. 20 minute break in a nine hour day. Dont pay for sick time. treat workers like crap. Lots of gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people for sick days. It is illegal to give one 1/2 hour or less break in full day of work . Respect and pay the people who keep your company going. Offer benefits.

    I have been working at Fresh & Co part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Depending on the store, your coworkers can be awesome. If you talk and make friends it makes the whole shift easier. In addition, since all the stores are in Manhattan, you will have the chance to talk with people from all over the place (mostly in a rush, but not all of them) and maybe make good connections. The Boss understand when I had to take vacations. If you're smart enough you can get to try every single item...

    Cons

    No benefits. Even though I received vacations, they weren't paid vacations. They wanted everyone to learn every single station (Salad, Grain Bowls, Paninis) but wouldn't pay you accordingly. Some Bosses can be a great pain because one wants something in a specific way but another one will complain about it. Some managers just want you to be the best worker, but putting a great amount of pressure on you to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more your workers. If they behave and have more than a year working, consider increasing their wage. Give more benefits.

    I worked at Fresh & Co part-time

    Pros

    The interview was easier & faster than microwavable food. Some employees were nice.

    Cons

    Confusing cash register labels & no training time to get to know them. Expect you to do everything for $8.75-$10 the most. No tips, no tasting products unless u pay (1/2 off) so I couldn't truthfully suggest products.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees, pay people more, stop being so greedy. Get to know your employees it's not a factory.

    I worked at Fresh & Co

    Pros

    Will hire anybody. If you are in dire need of a job this is good for buy a metro card and a burger. best bet is to use all the free time you will have from working only 4hrs a day to find a better job. Also they don't care if you miss days because it is so hard for them to keep anyone working for more than a month.

    Cons

    Cheap. Will do anything to keep your money as low as possible. Minimum wage to serve food to the very wealthy. Plus they literally stand over top of you as you work and expect you to be the best employee in the world. Only worked about 4 hrs a day but when they need you to do something they will ask you to stay over. As soon as you are done they will kick you out. Not work your time. Unless you are stupid. Nobody works...

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more. McDonalds pays more and works less hard. Stop trying to shave money and time off checks.

    Pros

    if you like to walk and see the city , outgoing person

    Cons

    if deliveries are made late or wrong and the customer complains you are held accountable instead of the people who take longs to make ypur deliveries which may have the customer complain about you and you may not even get a tip

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

    Pros

    Funny co-workers, being paid weekly, getting to know the regular customers.

    Cons

    It's a lot to do as a counter person, such as make coffee,lattes,tea etc, take the customers, argue with customers because they are wondering why their salad came out to $17.37, maintain a clean environment all for minimum wage. LAZY coworkers whom they can't FIRE because they are pregnant. Hours get cut because after 2 it's slow as molasses. SHADINESS between management. They want you to learn all the stations but each...

    Advice to Management

    I don't see this company lasting another 10 years. Bring something special that sets it apart from the many other salad/organic food stores in the city. Expensive, expensive, expensive. No NYU discount and they are your prime customers. Management will laugh,talk with you but they are shady,sneaky and untrustworthy.
