    I have been working at Native Sun Natural Foods Market full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome people, amazing customers to interact with, education on products and health, fast paced environment, 20% discount and in three + years I have received 3 raises. They recognize, respect and appreciate hard workers with a positive attitude.

    Cons

    Lack of training, support and guidance for new employees. I am a fast learner and self reliant so this didn't bother me too much, but I see it really hinder others' success. Communication has gotten so much better but still needs improvement, especially from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see an established training protocol for each department and a assigned "buddy system". Where each new employee felt supported and could have a solid week of going through the motions of each task. I love that every employee should start on the registers regardless of position. We can always use help up front especially during rush hours.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Native Sun Natural Foods Market.

    Interview

    I filled out a paper application at the store, got a call back in about 3 days for the interview. The produce manager was not able to make it, so my interview was with the store manager. I got a call the next day offering me the job.
