    I worked at Fresh and Easy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    As a manager I could set my schedule some, we had loyal customers, if you created a good team it was fun to work

    Cons

    Lots of physical labor, for managers too, very very low man hours for work to be done, lots of dysfunction within the systems, which showed in day to day routines, making them more cumbersome

    Advice to Management

    They switched to salary so expect to work more when needed, you will be doing physical labor, not a lot of support from corporate if you have concerns

    I worked at Fresh and Easy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and a great environment to work every day. I never had a day when I did not want to go to work. There was something new to do every day.

    Cons

    Schedules were not consistent, and a lot of overtime given to management which then resulted in cutting hours for employees. Schedules were changed even without you knowing. No one would ever tell you that your schedule changed.

    Advice to Management

    There is no more advice to give them because they went out of business. But one thing I will say is that the District Manager for the region I worked for was not very approachable and he never gave recognition or credit where it was due. He only pointed out opportunities but never the strengths.
