    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at The Fresh Market full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount is decent considering how expensive everything is there.

    Cons

    Constant changes in upper management means zero consistency. Almost impossible to get a response from corporate about anything. Rampant favoritism inside every store (and I say that as someone who benefited from it).

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting payroll to the bone. If your employees are miserable (and they are) the customers will be miserable as well. Listen to what your employees are saying and then DO SOMETHING about it. Without them you have no business.

    I worked at The Fresh Market full-time

    Pros

    Fun work enviornment. Great people.

    Cons

    The schedule would constantly change when there was no need for it to. This led to a lowered morale amongst the several employees in the department who were all in agreement to accommodate some sort of schedule consistency.
