    I worked at The Fresh Market full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sense of community and wonderful friendly atmosphere. The store managers really care about their employees and want you to succeed. Great employee discount and perks. Lots of delicious free samples and gourmet coffee. I was lucky enough to work in Carytown which made for a really nice atmosphere.

    Cons

    My department manager needed serious leadership training. As well as a lesson in professionalism and putting the customer first. She honestly seemed to dislike the customers and had a horrible attitude about her responsibility towards the overall outcome and success of the bakery department. Also, if you are looking to utilize classic baking and pastry training your time would be wasted here. The products are delicious, but not from scratch or even semi-homemade

    Advice to Management

    Better training (especially in leadership) for bakery department managers, more departmental meetings, team building exercises.

    Holiday hours changed, now we will not have family time over holiday season. It's the only time most of us actually see our families all year long.

    Keep up the great work, compensate your hard working staff.

    Pros

    The fresh market is a great place to work. The atmosphere is always welcoming and inviting.

    Cons

    Too many changes are happening at one time. Promoting from within has stopped, the company is looking on the outside for new managers. When they hire the new managers they are not providing them with training. The company doesn't not offer compensation for Holiday and they now have started to open on Thanksgiving and Easter, and reduced hours for Christmas eve, new years eve and day. Management turnover is very high due to the lack of training.

    Advice to Management

    Dont fix what was not broken. Go back to the core values of the The Fresh market brand. Empower the managers to make decisions, and develop a structured training program
