    Pros

    Good discounts. And benefits

    Cons

    I had a really bad experience with management. The managers think your super stupid and that because u haven't finish college they know more than you. And because they are managers they have the right to miss treatment without cause.

    Advice to Management

    To have a better relationship with employees and to open their eyes really big to see which employees are liars and which ones are working harder.

    Pros

    Great work environment! My co-workers were very nice and easy to work with, tasks/duties were very manageable, and pay was good for the position. Time went by very quickly and I had a ton of fun working at Sprout's.

    Cons

    The management, for the most part, was terrible. The managers were always cranky and of few words. They took their anger out on the Courtesy Clerks and Cashiers, and were not very approachable, nor were they helpful. When I had to quit because of school, one manager, who was very biased towards me because I was white (as oxymoronic as that sounds) says to me "how am I going to run my store if I don't have enough employees" when there were well over 100 at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Increase your morale and help your employees, who are doing most of your work, have a better work environment and a better experience to help you do your job. You need to do better in order help your store run better.

    Pros

    Friendly staff. Thorough training. Excellent Customer Service

    Cons

    Very low pay. Point system is very poor and lacks personal life crisis compassion.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that human beings do have emergencies and can not always be at work when forced to go to court appointments for divorce proceedings or suffering through chronic illness flare-ups which cause employees to miss a day or be late....In particular when your employee has told you of said circumstances up front before actually being hired in to the company.

    Pros

    Very interesting, This position covered all management responsibilities: Sales - customer and product development, r
    Purchasing - vendor, inventory, and logistics, Personnel - employee relationships, hiring, firing and salary, Office - selected equipment, and software, performed payable, receivable, and bookkeeping including printing checks and payroll, Manufacturing plant - oversaw equipment including purchase, maintenance, and supplies, worked with team on scheduling and quality control.

    Cons

    Business is extremely cyclical making long and short term planning difficult. It is a difficult market to plan and control inventory for the very specialized products which are scattered across the country.

    Advice to Management

    To the new owners I can not stress enough how important all your relationships are. You wear yourself always and need to project yourself affirming good strong character, which you can not fake. You need to be trustworthy, honest, affable, very productive and gain respect.

    Pros

    Laid-back dress-code. Very fair attendance policy. Good discount and benefits (50% 401K match is rare these days.) Other employees are nice and do a good job overall.

    Cons

    Work can get monotonous. Many customers seem overly entitled and condescending. A year before a raise is considered seems a little long.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over-hire and then cut hours. Make sure employees are being polite and saying the right things consistently so that the brand stays sharp.
