      I worked at Fresh and Easy full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Great people and product. Idea that can work with the right direction.

      Cons

      No solid marketing to draw customers. General Managers

      Advice to Management

      Hold GM’s accountable for not achieving company expectations. Do not promote employees just to fill the position. Allow GM’s to completely control the stores inventory via store ordering.

      I worked at Fresh and Easy full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Loved my staff. All hard working and knew their jobs well.

      Cons

      Pay rate was way to low for the amount of work required in a normal shift.

      Advice to Management

      Higher pay lets you keep good workers. If your employees are worrying about paying bills all the time then their work is directly affected.
