    Pros

    Customers are appreciative and participate feedback

    Cons

    Management is not professional and under qualified and do not back up their employees. Head cashiers are bullys and lie and collaborate to side against and divide co workers. No job training. Continual fabricated write ups as a form of harrassment. Gives away merchandise for free instead of finding solutions to problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer service is important but harassing your employees is not acceptable! Two faced treat customers well and treat employees rudely....bad karma! No words that are good!

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

    Pros

    15% discounts, and gift card rewards for hard work, fast pace, often times there was free food in the break room, sometimes they even bought us food, some of those customers are sweet as pie and will make it all worth it for a while!

    Cons

    Management treated us like children! We were constantly talked to like children and disrespected! Management accused employees of lying, underestimated employees, did not believe in employees, janitors only came in the morning and the restroom was public, so regular employees (never supervisors or head cashiers) were forced to clean loads of feces sometimes more than once a week and if we didn't we were sent home and written up. Lots of favoritism, management used foul language, gossiped about employees consistently instead of finding ways to help them like retraining, management also hit on me, made very sexual comments to me in person and random sexual text msgs. At times the hours were good and sometimes they were as low as 11hrs a week depending on sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees please. Sincerely appreciate your employees; especially if they work hard and customers are satisfied with them.

    Pros

    Cheap produce and 15% discount

    Cons

    You get no recognition for working you tail off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so stuck on your favorites because you can talk music or sports. Open your eyes look around and recognize the employees that bust their back for this company. Stop promoting your friends.

    Pros

    Meeting new people ,better life style. I learned about gmo organic. Holidays off. Tried different foods and experienced new cultures.

    Cons

    Management bullies the hardworking employees, it's never enough. The harder you work the more they want. The point system is tough. If you or a child is sick it becomes a point. I have seen numerous sick employees handling food because the are scared to call in sick because of the point system. I have seen favoritism at its best here. If you're not in with management get ready to be on the bottom of the list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the hardworking employees alone. We are under paid and over worked.

    Pros

    The job itself is very easy and brainless.

    Cons

    We busted our humps getting this store open and running. Now that the initial craziness is over, we have all had our hours cut down to 20 and below.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your busy times will carry you through the slow times, and stop making people just barely have a job.

    Pros

    A pay check and employee benefits

    Cons

    Micro management, stress, no work life balance, now going public the employees no longer matter, you're just a number. It is never good enough, we need more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you continue down this path, you will have no employee retention, always trying to convince new hires to join a company that doesn't care about them. You can pretend to be a good company but once employees get into the company look out. You will never be good enough.

    Worst Job "EVER"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market

    Pros

    None what so ever. Please don't work for this employer you will regret it

    Cons

    This is the most misleading employer I've ever had they treat the employees like we are nobody's. There know appreciation for employees we only appreciate each other for jobs well done. Hours are horrible know one can make a living working here this is more of a job for teenager's know one single and defenaly not for someone with kids. I went from 40hrs a week to 15-21 hrs a week and co- worker get the same are only 8 hrs a week I wish I never made this career change they paid me more money to join but this is a mistake I
    wish I was able to undo I've had so many financial hardships I'm on the verge of losing my home if I don't find a new job asap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys should treat your employees with more respect and maybe you will receive the same in return

    Pros

    The best thing was getting freebies from reps and gaining knowledge thru them. Loved helping customers

    Cons

    Management/Corporate is pathetic!! Was brutalized
     by asst dept.manager for a whole year!! After reporting to HR,was retaliated against for entire time I was there. The guy was a huge problem--- on many levels, incredibly lazy--incredibly racist,very hostile toward women...and HR kept lying to employees,telling us that they were "working" on the problem. I left the company because they are just SORRRY to deal with. The criminal asst dept manager is STILLLL there a year and a half later !!! Also was getting paid 2.00$ less an hour than a 20 yr old guy who had NO experience..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You promote your company as being so wholesome to the public -- you need to pour ALL your energy into making sure THE PEOPLE WHO BREAK THEIR BACKS making you all your billions..are treated like humans.
    You have people work ON A HOLIDAY..and you then cut their regular schedule ...to where not only do you NOT GET PAID for leaving your family on that holiday , but YOU DON'T EVEN GET YOUR 40 Hrs !!! YOU PEOPLE ARE SO DESPICABLE AT HOW YOU DO THINGS ---- I THINK YOU ARE BEYOND HELP. Karma will meet up with you...someday.
