    I have been working at The Fresh Market full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees who help each other out. Discount.

    Cons

    Where to start? Prior to working at Fresh Market, I worked 12 years at a big box grocer. I was an assistant manager, with typical duties. I had less problems there than at Fresh Market. Half the asst. mgrs are under trained, incompetent and lazy. Those that are not usually get fed up with the crap and leave. A prior review mentioned being penalized and prosecuted for bad inventories. By being understaffed and overly distracted by unnecessary meetings,etc, it is hard to accomplish your own tasks, much less someone else. Another irritating aspect of this company is the perpetual babysitting of incompetent and lazy employees. When you take disciplinary action against them, you run the chance of being overran by management.

    My duties as grocery specialist include the following:
    Receiving
    Ordering
    Stocking
    Backroom mgmt
    Resets
    Pricing
    Monthly displays
    Weekly special events
    Paperwork
    Inventories
    Assisting other depth mgrs with whatever they need
    Other duties as assigned by mgmt

    And did I mention I oversee 3 departments? I do have an assistant & 4 part time clerks. This would seem adequate, however, they haven't the sense of urgency and I'm told by mgmt I have to work within their abilities. Coaching and mentoring part of my job. I cannot spend all of my time babysitting. I would like to be able to spend time with new associates, training, but we are often in crisis mode by the they are hired and have to throw them into the deep end immediately.

    And all with no overtime!!!!!!!!!!

    There's an inordinate amount of favoritism shown to a minority few associates. Extra overtime is allotted to them; others are given the opportunity. Meanwhile, those of us who could use it our own depts don't get it. I know overtime is costly, but if it increases sales, that's a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    Have the guts to actual listen to the people who actually do the work without subliminal threats of retaliation. Be proactive, not reactive. Less contact from Dm's, let us do our job. Trust us.
