    "Good Job"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Mother's Market part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule Cool people Customers were mostly ok

    Cons

    Besides the occasional rude and entitled customers, the company itself is fine. It does seem like management is mostly men that don't really listen to the female supervisors who want what's best for the company, but that's anywhere.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Mother's Market full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, lenient with callouts

    Cons

    Understaffed, entitled customers, outdated computer system, very little management, constant employee turnover even with management, long hiring process, minimum wage, if you are vaguely competent you will be shuffled between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger management, update computer system, educate customers in that they cannot treat employees the way that they do, better juice bar system,

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Mother's Market full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job attracts friendly, interesting people. Advanced positions open up regularly because there is a lot of turnover, if people are looking to advance quickly.

    Cons

    Managers are always on a huge power trip. No appreciation for hard work, just playing favorites. Very little hope of significant pay increase. Corporate keeps making stupid mistakes and then they increase prices and cut starting pay in order to try to compensate for losses. Company outlook is not good. Lots of turnover recently because of corporate changes. People who've worked for the company for 10 years or more... are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting employee benefits and treat workers with respect. Stop taking risks with new stores in competitive areas when you can improve the stores that actually make the company money.
