    Pros

    They are really good and moving people up the ladder. Willing to teach any position, all you really need are people skills.

    Cons

    No real pay increases, must change positions. No real benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Teach employees how to interact with customers and keep them loyal. Should be more of a neighborhood market where people are greeted by name when they come in.

    Pros

    I enjoy working with the other employees. It is a friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Not enough hours available once the grand opening is over.

    Advice to Management

    I think new employees should be told in advance that their hours could be drastically cut. People have quit other jobs thinking they would have a lot more hours only to be cut to very few if any hours.

    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time

    Pros

    Easy job, get paid weekly, cool people to work with, get to work with the public.

    Very monotonous, only scheduled a few hours a week, not very exciting, a very routine sort of job

    Advice to Management

    hire less employees, distribute hours better, don't talk to the employees like they are dumb all the time

    Pros

    -Coworkers are all happy and generally fun to work with, even most of the managers are great to talk to. -Customers aren't too bad; was expecting a lot of nut cases when I first started but I've only had a few problems over my 6 months with sprouts -Extreme opportunity for advancement, I've already received one and am also being trained to be a cashier, however each promotion offers little pay raise.

    Cons

    -Management sucks on a business level, there is some critical mistake in my schedule every couple of weeks which is far too often (Scheduled me during my school, scheduled me during my vacations) -Poor pay -They expect you to do 2 mens work by yourself, and punish you if you go overtime, and punish you if you don't finish. Its impossible to please them, which is exactly how they like it,

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard workers with raises, and then they'll consider staying. Offer more help when departmnts are falling behind rather than just writing people up.

    Pros

    You get a 15% discount on all your purchases all the time. Full time employees are eligible for insurance which is pretty good.

    Cons

    If you thing/k you are going to get promoted, you better think again. The manager where I worked lied to me. I was told I was going to get another position only to find out someone with less experience weezeled their way into getting the manager to give it to them. Then the manager lied to me when I asked what was going on. Could NOT look me in the face. Made up some story that she was Benchwarming for the position.. What a lie. He knew I know he was lying. He then tried to make it up to me by offering me a position I really didn't want only because he had no one to fill it. The person who took my job from that point on would NOT look at me. What liers they are at Sprouts.. Watch out!! Investigate all the managers tell you.

    Advice to Management

    STOP THE LIES
