    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discount was awesome. They have employee appreciation days where the discount goes from 15% to 20% and they do something special. Hours are flexible. Coworkers were all really nice. If you are interested in moving to another department, they will train you and move you when they can.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. They are the type to act like they are managing by telling you to do something you're already doing. One manager in particular does this and also doesn't help on the register when it gets busy. This same manager will also get mad if your line is too long. If you want to move departments or you need something, you have to pester them or they will forget.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and dont try to avoid work.

    Pros

    Fairly easy job and when I leave I don't take the job stress with me. An employee discount is a nice benefit.

    Cons

    Schedules can be erratic - late one night then early the next day. Till accountability can be crummy - it's shared so if someone who has been on your register screws up then everyone is held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust till accountability so that each cashier is audited separately.

    Pros

    Very flexible with school schedule and very helpful when needing days off. Management worked hard to train you within the vitamin department

    Cons

    It takes a lot to get a raise. Hours were cut very often and would send people home hours early to reduce cost

    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting new people. The freedom. Chill environment. Most employees are nice and friendly. The music isn't half bad either, although some can be a bit.. Inappropriate.

    Cons

    No room for promotion or raise.. ESPECIALLY raise.( ONE raise a year if you're lucky enough to get one and it'd be about 15 cents..also some managers are actually TOLD to give you a lower score for your raise) Managers can take credit for your work. Misleading and lying managers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and don't lie to them and give them a decent raise damn it.

    Pros

    I have consistant hours each day, I get paid fairly well for the job. Benefits ok,

    Cons

    Alot of stress due to Dept managers not following thru, putting items out with no signs or tags then the scan coordinator is held responsible for that. Reviews are once a year. Low increases.

    Advice to Management

    I really like my job, and have been doing it for many years now. It is however disappointing when it comes to reviews. I do the same job and do it exceptionally well.! As stated many yimes by auditors. If I did not I would have been gone long ago. and since I have been around for quite awhile I have noticed how very inconsistent reviews can be. When I started at sprouts. They praised my job, skills etc... my managers were very happy with my.preformance. since merging wth Henrys we have a different air. 1- 5 is the rating scale for reviews.The current regionals, and managers feel that 3=meets expectations, is where everyone is, but in employee eyes 3= just average. I have had several managers, I do the same job, some rate me. High, some rate me lower. Even when we exceed "the expections, I was told I could not get any more of a raise. I have integrity and feel responsible for my job, but I can see how Employees can feel, whats the use on working hard? I get the same pay raise as someone who isn't, or I get a meets expectations,average, from one manager, and then the next manager rates you totally different because his view of excelling is different. Employees know what others in the same jobs get as reviews, we all talk and when We get a lower review and hear how our counterpart, who has poor attendance, lower scores, etc get raving reviews from their manager, it is frustrating. Minimum wage went up but all of us just above got a big decrease! Discouraged, I feel I need to re-evaluate where I am working, not feeling valued"
