The people I work with, my fellow employees, are really nice; however, over all it is not a good place to work! I was hired as part time and promised 20 hrs per wk, I got 10-15, unless someone called off, and I was told I couldn’t get another part time job if I wanted to keep my position. The worse manager I have ever had, opening one day and closing the next, 4 hr shifts, and more... She was above team work as well, spent her time texting during evening hrs., no closing duties for her. During reviews, everyone was adequate, no raises for anyone, below average pay through out the store, $9 per hr start. Absolutely no training involved, you wing it, yet noted when you get it wrong. I was told to learn the plu numbers at home off the clock, no pay, and it was Kroger’s or Sprout’s cram site, not Fresh Thymes! Yet told to go faster on the registers and lighten up on the mistakes. During the 5 months, 4 ppl walked and 2 put in their notice, they haven’t replaced them, we are expected to take up the slack and with a smile.
I picked up hrs in another department with the promise of full time and a meet in pay with someone else I had interviewed with, as soon as the front end quit putting me on their schedule, this was 2 wks ago and looking at 3 wks now, no change. The manager is much better, a team player; however, she had 3 full time workers walk out and 1 with a notice, same ending story.

Stone-cold and heartless. Management dramatically overvalues themselves and undervalues the employees that make them. Once you get hired here, your number one priority in life had better be Fresh Thyme, otherwise you're not worth the minuscule wage you're paid.

Culture? Ha, the only culture you’ll find here is in the cheese section. This companies thrives off of lies and backstabbing.

They expect you to work 5 people's jobs for little pay & management is a joke! You can never find them out on the floor & never assist the employees when needed. If you enjoy lining a companies pockets & not surviving yourself, then this is the place for you.

Don't go 'above & beyond' because you won't be recognized for any extra work you do to accomplish the "team" goal..... if you do get hired, any & ALL positive stuff said by any corporate "minion" is just smoke & mirrors!!! Then, they'll hire people who don't even REMOTELY quality for the position they're hired for.....,, the BEST part is, if someone applies & they've worked with the Store Director prior, they'll get promoted before you will & they'll have NO clue how to do the job!

Beware! Check Glassdoor to get lots of feedback on this companies culture. They entice you with a lot of (we aren't a company without you, you make the difference). Then, the complete opposite happens and you are worth very little to them.
