Current Employee - Courtesy Clerk

Former Employee - Cashier/Crew Member

I worked at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage full-time for more than a year

Pros

Family-owned health food market chain that has an inspiring mission statement, and lofty goals of improving the world one-healthy grocery-shopper at a time. I felt inspired to go to work every day... knowing that I was part of such an idealistic company. Also, there are multiple opportunities for fast upward mobility!!

Cons

Some managers need to improve their coaching skills....I probably never would have left there if I had had a more supportive manager. C'est le vie...

Advice to Management

Interview Managers more thoroughly to make sure their mgmt. style matches the corporate philosophy
