Sprouts Farmers Market – Why Work For Us?


Sprouts is the grocery shopping experience that makes healthy living easy and affordable. Our bright and cheery neighborhood grocery stores offer fresh, natural and organic foods and products at incredible prices – and in an approachable setting that feels like an old-fashioned farmers market.

You'll find mountains of colorful, fresh fruits and vegetables, barrels of wholesome grains, nuts and sweets, and full-service deli, meat and seafood counters—complete with handmade burgers and sausages. Roam around our spacious, low-profile aisles and you'll find fresh baked goods, tasty and convenient, ready-to-eat meals, gourmet cheeses, sensibly-priced vitamins and supplements, and thousands of natural, organic and gluten-free groceries.

One thing is for sure: working at Sprouts is a lot of fun! Sounds right up your alley? All you need is a passion for people and flair for food. We can show you the rest.

In 1943, Henry Boney began Sprouts' longstanding legacy of providing fresh, natural food available to anyone interested in eating well and spending less when he opened a San Diego fruit stand.

Our company was founded by members of the Boney family, long-time San Diego grocers with a focus on making fresh foods affordable. Our founders opened the first Sprouts store in Chandler, Ariz. in 2002 with abundant produce and thousands of natural, organic and great-tasting foods at remarkably low prices.

Our story continued with a period of rapid growth through acquisitions and new store development. In 2011, Sprouts joined with Henry's Holdings, which ran 35 Henry's Farmers Markets stores and eight Sun Harvest Market stores. A year later, Sprouts bought Sunflower Farmers Market, which ran 37 stores.

Sprouts became a public company traded on the NASDAQ Stock Market in August, 2013. In recent years, we expanded into the Southeast by adding new stores in Georgia, Missouri, Alabama and Tennessee. Today, Sprouts is one of the fastest growing retailers in the country. Sprouts employs more than 24,000 team members and operates 250 stores in 13 states from coast to coast.

We have never lost sight of Henry's vision and we remain true to our belief that good food, and good taste, mean fresh and natural. Thanks, Henry!

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

    Pros

    Strong Culture and Positive Moral make coming to work each day amazing. Pay is based off your experience in the position you apply for so it is extremely accurate and deserving. Great discounts and full benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is busy to the point that it sacrifices that 1 to 1 quality time with each client due to limited store staffing hours. The chance to be heard by corporate management is limited by the natural hierarchy that expects lower management to handle all situations that arise. This does a lot to kill positive change to policies and procedures that need revamping.

    Advice to Management

    Have Employee focus groups and or round tables with corporate management of different levels all the way up to the CEO.
