    Pros

    Benefits are wonderful if you are a full time employee! Saw lots of complaints of benefits for part timers. (You are part time... it is not your career...you shouldn't have full benefits.) 1 week of sick time per year which is pretty great for a grocery store. Great health insurance. 3 plans to choose from, all Blue Cross Blue Shield. Vacation starts at a week a year after 6 months employment. Goes up with time in company. (2 weeks after 3 years, 3 weeks after 5 years, 4 weeks after 10 years). You can use your vacation or cash it out or both. Emergency loans available at no interest. Weekly pay. Dental, vision, STD, LTD...TONS of opportunity for advancement. TONS.We are growing very rapidly. If you are a decent employee, have open availability, you are pretty much guaranteed a promotion. I have worked at other grocery stores and this is by far the best.

    Cons

    Not ecstatic with the direction the company is going as we grow. We are going farther and farther from what made Sprouts great. But that is to be expected as is now a public company so the dollar is now the bottom line.

    Pros

    I can say that the employes are nice but quite at the same time. You get 15% off employee discount.

    Cons

    Small store. Weird customers. Unprofessional company they don't train new employes like they should. They expect you to know everything I honestly don't recommend this company to anyone. Very low pay.

    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I truly enjoy the work environment and our customers. The company is also very flexible with your personal availability. They have employee discounts and employee appreciation days.

    Cons

    It seems that as the company continues to grow, it is becoming more selfish. With many new stores opening, they have continuously changed policies that affect employees negatively. They also try to cut labor costs to the point where their employees are losing hours, holiday pay, and creating a more demanding work environment due to not having enough employees per shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff departments accordingly so as to reduce work load stress, boost morale, and increase efficient customer service.

    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Got promoted in only about 3 months. Simple duties. Very flexible with vacations. Ok salery.

    Cons

    Simple duties leads to getting stuff done and being bored. Pay was not great but not bad. Slightly above minimum wage for Grocery Clerk, and minimum wage for Courtesy Clerk (Bagger).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the courtesy clerks stuff to do besides bag groceries all day. It is the most "monkey-work" job I've ever had.
