    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

    Friendly, hardworking people to work alongside.

    Cons

    Underpaid for workload and demands on employees

    Advice to Management

    Get organized. Don't just ship distressed produce out to the stores and expect it to sell.

    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.

    Pros

    There was a fair amount of flexibility. It's generally easy to get a job there. 15% discount.

    Cons

    No benefits for the entire first year. There was a very negative energy throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    Spread the wealth more. Sprouts is a successful company and very profitable company; it should also be a great employer like Trader Joe's or Whole Foods.

    Pros

    -Some great co workers to get to know -Lots of training in different areas -Fun place to work, very fast paced

    Cons

    -Management is a mess and will replace you at the drop of a dime -There's a lot of gossip, slander, harassment at this store and management tells you to just ignore it -The pay is terrible for the work they have you doing, it's one of the busiest stores in the district yet they'll hire you for 40 cents above minimum wage and have you break down 15 pallet loads for produce -Most employees don't care about their dept or their work, but when you go the extra mile they'll try to discredit you and buddy up with a manager -Employee discount went down to 10%, from 15%, it was 20% when Sprouts was Henry's

    Advice to Management

    Pay the employees who do work hard their fair share, it's hard to care about the company when you're making 25 cents more than the disabled person bagging groceries and get ridden everyday about how you're not working hard enough.

    Pros

    Relatively little exertion. Employee discount. Not too high strung of am atmosphere. Beer and wine as well.

    Cons

    Boring, boring, boring. Extremely low pay. Customers bizarre and frustrating. Small staff.

    Advice to Management

    Structure the system for determining promotions. Perform more maintenance on cashier stations. Was tired of broken scanners and run down keypads.

    Pros

    I started working at my local Sprouts in late February/early March, less than a month after Grand Opening. I started part time in as a cashier but was tired of that after doing the same at my previous job. I asked to transfer to produce, and my request was completed almost immediately. Generally, I like my direct coworkers in my department and the work, while monotonous isn't neccesarily difficult. I started at $9.26 an hour but was given a raise to $9.79 after two months. Still not as good as my last job, and leaves very little extra money at the end of the week. That said, getting paid every Friday is nice.

    Cons

    Managers don't always honor day off requests, our department is significantly under staffed and it makes completing the basic functions of our jobs difficult, especially whe the same work is expected by management whether there is four people working, or just one.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making our necks feel breathed down. Working in a store like this is not a rewarding experience, for most people, myself included, it's simply the best we can do. I don't look forward to coming to work largely because of our managers. There is no sense of decorum, many of them will openly say negative things about coworkers or even other managers, which may at times be amusing if, for example, you shared an opinion about a difficult coworker. However, that also opens you up to wondering what everyone is saying about you when you're not around. I've heard the store manager say very ugly things about a friend of mine who works in my department and who is matter of factly, mentally handicapped. On the subject of management, one night recently I closed the produce department by myself, working a 2-10:30 shift. I was asked to stay late to clean the floor in our back room. That is usually done on a Sunday night when business has slowed but there's still three people working. It was Saturday night and due to a scheduling mistake I was left to close alone. Essentially, I had three peoples' work to do, but was not asked to do the extra tasks until I was done with everything at 10:30. No big deal, I'll stay late, earn some over time. I left work at 12:30. When I woke up the next morning my supervisor had texted me saying my hours were cut for that day.
