    I have been working at New Leaf Market part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    the discount is really good, some of the benefits are great like the health insurance and your access to local food

    Cons

    too much favoritism, time-off policy is terrible, no room to grow because of the lifers, and the unethical people managing the place

    Advice to Management

    Need to quit playing favorites and promoting people who don't have the job qualifications, and do things that boost employee moral or things will continue to go downhill.

    Pros

    This is a company that truly works for the bigger picture of our environment, community and people. Its a blessing to work with a company that care so much about it's overall impact on the people it serves.

    Cons

    Poor communication and leadership from the top. There is a lack of clear goals and objectives outlined. Also, an opportunity to be more competitive with salaries.

    Pros

    15% discount on almost everything. Raises with additional years of service.
    Clean store.
    Sells good quality items.

    Cons

    Prices are high.
    Many customers act snobby.
    Management lacks training skills.
    Employees decide the fate of co-workers

    Advice to Management

    Train front end employees to show more of a sense of ownership.
    Change the 'vote to keep' system. relies too much on personalities and not actual work ethics or productivity

    Pros

    Great people. Great locations. If you love the environment and people who are open minded, this is the place for you. The customers were ususally a pleasure to work with. The discounts on food and vitamins are great! It's fun and pretty laid back. I appreciate the experience of working at New Leaf Market. Great for someone who's in school and has another income.

    Cons

    Commute was sometimes a pain. Low pay. No raises. You're not in it for the money. Can't really live off full time work there. It's a second job. If you don't share the opinion of the majority of the work force, you should probably keep it to yourself.

    Advice to Management

    A couple of low cost perks would be appreciated - especially at the middle management level.
