    I have been working at The Fresh Market full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been working in this company since April 2014, and I love the Fresh Market so much, sometimes I feel like I worked with my adopted family . The possibility of promotion is always available to those employee who worked really hard,you don’t even have to wait for years to get promoted because the management know if you have the potential to run the store or the department. From HR ,district manager and to store managers I would say this people are amazing and they all deserve to be respected , I always give my 100% hard work as soon as I swipe my badge on the clock ,also this company will allow you to
    have overtime ,work with your schedule and also very understanding about your needs specially if it’s your family . If one day I decide to quit for a better opportunity , I would never say anything bad about this company because I haven’t been treated so bad as an employee . Actually I love our assistant store managers ,my favorite is Danielle ☺️ And our district manager is awesome,again this people just want you to do your job and they just want to do theirs,I have no reason to hate this place .

    Cons

    I will be lying to you if there’s no cons
    - we’re having a real hard time hiring more people to join our store I think because of this people who quit and just leave us a very shockingly poor review just to make sure no one will apply for a job and wish to see us drowned
    - we have new items almost all the time and is hard to keep up
    -you have to work really hard even if some employee don’t

    Advice to Management

    To the managers,
    Please keep up the good work and thank you for being there to back us up whenever the department is in rocky situation,and you know who you are. Every time I saw you work hard it gives me reason to work harder,
    I just wish that our store will have more people that really want to be a part of the Fresh Market ,if not then let’s keep on hoping😘

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

    Pros

    Employee discount was great. Hours weren't too bad either, our store closed at 9pm so that was the latest we cashiers worked which was fine.

    Cons

    Slow, our store in particular. I found myself covering for people who called out a lot.

    I worked at The Fresh Market full-time

    Pros

    Great products, competitive wages, promotes from within, can work your way up, there is ALWAYS work to do, good experience.

    Cons

    There aren't that many cons except for the store I worked at had so many different managers (upper management) in the time I was there. Veey inconsistent. When I reached department manager I had very little support and zero training outside of what they thought I already knew solely based on time with the company.
