    Pros

    Sprouts is a great place to work. If you are young and ambitious there is lot's of room to move up. If you are willing to relocate advancement is easy if you will work hard.

    Cons

    The tough part is that the work can be physical. Long hours on your feet on hard surfaces can be tough on your body so wear comfortable shoes with lots of support. If you move into management you will end up married to the store.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and make sure everyone is towing the line when it comes to customer service. The customer experience can vary quite a bit from one employee to the next. Some departments get so focused on stocking that they don't want to see customers.

    Pros

    Great pay and atmosphere as opposed to big chains, there are having growing pains too, but mgmt seems to be heading in the right direction.

    Cons

    Need training programs, just throwing people out there to see if they get it or not will not get them the qualified candidates they are looking for. I hear it's coming soon

    Advice to Management

    Take in to account who you have hired, with the right sprouts training, greatness. Don't look at the other guys be the guy that is looked at. The talent will come😇.

    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discount was awesome. They have employee appreciation days where the discount goes from 15% to 20% and they do something special. Hours are flexible. Coworkers were all really nice. If you are interested in moving to another department, they will train you and move you when they can.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. They are the type to act like they are managing by telling you to do something you're already doing. One manager in particular does this and also doesn't help on the register when it gets busy. This same manager will also get mad if your line is too long. If you want to move departments or you need something, you have to pester them or they will forget.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and dont try to avoid work.

    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount is okay, majority of co-workers are friendly and flexibility in work schedule for school.

    Cons

    Pay is minimum, raises are less than a dollar and overtime is never an option. Management is well known to mistreat employees who report a work injury or complain about harassment in the workplace. Can't tell you how many times I have heard a co-worker tell me that Management threatened to write them up. Doesn't really scream a friendly working environment. I am shocked that my co-workers haven't sued them yet or reported them to Osha. For the most part, I bite my tongue and do my job. Sometimes a pay check isn't enough to jeporadize ones morals.

    Advice to Management

    Discrmination/retaliation are two words that Management doesn't ever want to hear, so my advice to Management is to treat your employees with respect, regardless of the situation. Respect goes along way and may save your job one day. Remember everyone is replaceable.
