    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, weekly paychecks and the 15% employee discount

    Cons

    Despite having full availability, rarely get enough hours. Work is incredibly repetitive and dull. Management keeps hiring more people so everyone gets fewer hours. The public is often rude and acts entitled to free things. Corporate HR is unresponsive to employee concerns. Main complaint is that the company UNDERPAYS its employees... Been working here for over three years and yet they cannot be bothered to thank me for it with a decent rate per hour.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending you actually care about the employees. You'll bend over backwards for a rude customer but could care less if we were paid competitively. In a nutshell, don't expect Nordstrom-level customer service and commitment but then treat/pay us like we work at Walmart.

    Pros

    You get a 15% discount on all your purchases all the time. Full time employees are eligible for insurance which is pretty good.

    Cons

    If you thing/k you are going to get promoted, you better think again. The manager where I worked lied to me. I was told I was going to get another position only to find out someone with less experience weezeled their way into getting the manager to give it to them. Then the manager lied to me when I asked what was going on. Could NOT look me in the face. Made up some story that she was Benchwarming for the position.. What a lie. He knew I know he was lying. He then tried to make it up to me by offering me a position I really didn't want only because he had no one to fill it. The person who took my job from that point on would NOT look at me. What liers they are at Sprouts.. Watch out!! Investigate all the managers tell you.

    Advice to Management

    STOP THE LIES

    Pros

    Full time, can be fun at times, the baking was fun and writing my own schedule, overseeing employees was ok hours were early

    Cons

    Stress, employees, benefits, pay...I can go on, lets just say it was like being in high school again...drama drama drama

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees some positive feedback from Time to time instead of consistently bearing down on them. Trust your managers to get the job done.

    Pros

    Sprouts seems to reward years of experience. They use a certain formula to calculate what the salary. There is ample opportunity to move up as the company is growing fast.

    Cons

    There are too many loopholes in the system. The company does not seem to run smoothly because there is no consistency across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on store openings and improve the system.

    Pros

    Discounts, and there's nothing else good at sprouts but to become good friends with coworkers and there's not even bonuses.

    Cons

    Really really bad managers. They treat it me like super bad. Some costumers were really rude even know I was super nice to them and worst thing is that the manager believed them the whole entire lie they were told.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest corporate or the freaking owners would go and check to every store how well their employees are working and the worst thing also was that one of my coworker was getting pay really really low and all of the other one were not including me.
