They took me to meet the new store mgr, who during our conversation, found that m household does a lot of juicing. Because of that he took me to meet the deli mgr, and was immediately offered a job at the Juice bar. Over all, an easy and pleasant process.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sprouts Farmers Market.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone call was from the store manager who told me I was a possible candidate. Made appointment for follow up interview. 30 minutes after the agreed on appointment time I ended up calling them. Was then referred to assistant manager, had a brief interview with the normal questions and made arrangements for third interview. Was stood up again, ended up connecting the next day over the phone and was told that I was no longer a candidate for the job. Felt that they were totally disorganized and wasted my time.

    The interview was pretty standard. Behavioral questions. Took about 20 mins. I had actually applied for a higher position but decided to do the interview anyway. Sprouts seems like a good growing company.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Sprouts Farmers Market.

    Interview Details

    I found the manager to be very unprofessional. Forgot who they were interviewing, answered calls , and employees came into during the interview. They also mentioned they needed someone to be available for all hours, yet this was a part time job. I thought interview was fine (in spite of the distractions) but then was told that if no one called, it wasn't because I didn't get the job it was because they were too busy to call. I was asked to call for an update (I didn't call).

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sprouts Farmers Market.

    Interview Details

    Two weeks after applying online, I received a phone call and was asked to walk in for an interview. I was interviewed by the manager in the front of the store by the cashiers, and the entirety of it took about 5 minutes, if that - and interrupted midway when the manager got up to help a cashier with something. For most of the interview, she talked to me about the position, its requirements, the corporate accountability system, and so on, calling the job "pretty easy." She then asked me if I had any questions. Not like a traditional interview at all, and definitely not an effective interview. I was told that there were going to be 5 more interviews that same day, and that I would be called the next day before noon if I got the job. Overall, I got the feeling that the manager just wanted to get the interview over with.

    Was asked the same questions that you would normally get asked in an interview. It was casual and in a room with many other people who were being interviewed at the same time. After that, most communication was done online.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sprouts Farmers Market in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I put my application in on a Sunday and received a phone call from a manager the next day asking me if i was available with in the next 2 hours. I was. When i walked into the store i waited very briefly at the front while a cashier paged the manager. He then took me upstairs into the office and was very professional. He asked me questions about previous difficulty I've had at past jobs and then sent me home. He told me i would be receiving another phone call from the store manager. I never received a second phone call so when i called they told me they had a freeze going on and no one was being hired at Sprouts. They store manager also had quit and thrown away everyone's interview papers so they needed to start all over on everyone's process. I got another call a few days later from the manager that had interviewed me asking if i was available for an interview, he did not remember that we had already met and had one. I decided that this seemed a little crazy and decided to seek employment elsewhere.

    Interview Questions
    • didn't ask any questions that were extremely difficult   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The company seems very disorientated The employees that i did talk to told me it was not worth putting myself through tons of stress. The pay is not very good. Every employees i talked to, managers included told me they get the minimum raise when its review time. They do not hire full time so no benefits. Doesn't sound like a place i want to work at.
