Truck Operator and Food Courier (Former Employee) – Long Island City, NY – November 16, 2016
Great company. Room for growth. Various positions available and shifts. Overtime. Fast paced environment. Heavy lifting. Pay is not good for cdl b drivers or non cdl drivers. not worth risking your cdl license for this company; especially for the pay.
Bilingual Senior Training Analyst (Former Employee) – Long Island City, NY – November 14, 2016
I loved working at FreshDirect. Had great support from my supervisor. Also, it is super down to earth. I mean you don't know many companies where the CEO says hello and greets you says thank you for your job every other week. I loved the freebies we would get every week! Employee store is FANTASTIC!
Great career advancement opportunities if you work hard!
Career Growth, employee store, discounts, freebies
ACCOUNT MANAGER (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 11, 2015
FreshDirect is where I was most proud of my work throughout the 10 years of my career. You are encouraged to work incredibly hard for the company, and you are rewarded with career growth as a result. While there is a gap within HR to devise a formalized approach to career growth, there are plenty of opportunities if you are hungry and strategize appropriately.
Being that the company is still somewhat new, compensation is not the best - especially for the output you are expected to delivery.
Many of the employees are young, friendly, smart, and helpful. You can easily find a mentor or vice versa, I miss working here.
Discounted Groceries, Career Advancement, Renovated Office Space, Friendly Environment
OPERATIONS SHIFT LEAD (Current Employee) – Long Island City, NY – June 5, 2015
A typical Day at fresh direct is non stop from the time you clock in to the time you clock out, we are constantly on the phones with customer service department as well as transportation to department to make sure customer receive seamless deliveries.
A job in the Operation Center at Fresh Direct is challenging and rewarding,
co-worker are young and energetic and require supervision, but friendly and knowledgeable.
Management does not recognize talent and experience and advancement is slow.
Speaking with customer and resolving issues with their deliveries is the beat part of the day.
A close-knit community of hard-working dreamers and doers
Brand Marketing & Partnerships Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 27, 2015
I've had many positions at FreshDirect over the past several years. Management there has allowed me to grow and try new things, stretch my creative wings, and take on new challenges. It is a place that thrives on innovation and drive. Maybe not for the faint-hearted, but good for those who want to know the world of food retail and e-commerce in a fast-paced (think newsroom) environment.
A place where you can learn a lot and gain job experience

cook/prep cook (Former Employee) – Long Island-Queens, NY – February 26, 2015
is a company for the person only to start, because they sell you a nice and decent place but the employees and supervisor have other Cain of mechanism which is not good to develop and grown in the company.
good place to start if you need experience as a driver or plan on moving up.Do not work@ the nj cross dock you won't be able to take time off without
management (Former Employee) – Hackensack nj – January 19, 2015
Over time in the nj cross dock if you are Spanish, management is partial to Spanish employees, and do not try to take time off you have accumulated god for bid you have an emergency (unless you are Spanish) the lead management will give you a problem and act like he is doing you a favor, so my advice is do not work at the new Jersey cross dock
Meat Inventory Associate (Current Employee) – Long Island City, NY – January 18, 2015
This is a really bad company. The management always seem to lie to you about everything. First they lie you about the amount t of money you work be paid and n y make a very hostile work environment to work in. They pay you a horrible rate for the value you are suppose to get I. This industry.Even if you have experience they pay you horrible I also recommend that you don't buy food from the company either. They drop meat on the floor and still sell it to customers. Employees don't wash their hands she. They have finished using the bathroom but cut your meat horrible place just horrible
