Management messed up the schedule predictably.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to learn how to do some aspects of their job. Although, they are very nice people.

    Better store and department management needed if you want to keep the edge over the competition.

    Pros

    Customers seem to like the stores very much as a nice alternative to the standard grocery stores in the neighborhood. The focus on customer service is a real point of difference. However, workers worked so hard there is little time to truly interact. Morale within departments is often very low and bitter.

    Cons

    Too many differences between same departments of stores at different locations. Why is there not more stanardization and ongoing training? Also, ergonomics of job vary by location. Sinks at some locations are too low and lead to backaches from those who wash dishes several hours a day --- vs. some locations have higher sinks that are not so problematic. No incentives to clerk employees to keep them motivated to do a good job. Jobs are day to day monotony ---- and over time the employees seem to not care. Negative feedback from managers only worsens mood. Why not have leadership that leads with enthusiasm and positive feedback?*!* Feels like a slave trade to go to work rather than having positive management lead the team toward success. In the end, Sprouts Corp loses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of ongoing training -- depending on individual manager. Current manager leads by beating everyone up on their performance rather than giving positive feedback/training/encouragement. Preferential treatment given to very lackluster employees --- to the dismay of those who are harder workers with higher work standards. Very demoralizing. Other managers in store are completely opposite. Why such a huge disparity? Does management not oversee managers and their methods? Also, cross training between depts. would be an opportunity for each employee to learn more about the total business --- I suggest every employee have at least one week every so many months of cross training in other department or working "front of house" to assist customers.
