Pros

In my experience, Sprout's is a pretty decent place to work as an hourly. I hear a number of people grumble, but they are typically the slackers and those that have not had other jobs. In my opinon, if you show up and do what is asked the day is a breeze and you get paid.

Cons

There seems to be a lot of mind changing that happens, but you go with the flow and no one gets hurt. I hear talk that "they" only have the customer's back, but I think that is most companies this day and age.

Advice to Management

Be consistent and fair. Give reasons with scoldings. Understand, that the way you speak to people matters and can determine the outcome of a situation. Be kind not nice.

    Pros

    Decent starting pay. Healthy food to buy at lunch. Benefits are offered. The new employees are welcomed and have an upbeat attitude. 10% employee discount.

    Cons

    Although you may be hired as "Full-Time" your hours will suffer greatly if you ever call in plus management is definitely told to make sure you don't have that 32-hour average so as not to pay the full health insurance premium. Plus, your starting hours maybe 35-40, but then they hire new associates and cut everyone's hours in the process to 25-30. Also, the starting pay is decent but raises are only given after your 6-month review and only 2 employees in our store were given $.50/hr raise. Only the store manager will perform your review with zero input from your supervisors thereby assuring low marks. Performance rating system completely illogical and unfair to all. The President of Sprouts touts a 96% turnover rate and is actually surprised that there may still be an original employee (from when store opened) working there.

    Advice to Management

    Train all grocery department on working the cash registers for when things get extremely busy. Show some respect and positive feedback to the red-shirt employees, not just the green-shirted ones. Throw out your current performance rating system as it is obviously used to prevent raises to anyone. Let supervisors do the reviews since they are in direct contact with us every day. Fully train the baggers and stop leaving it up to everyone else to do it!

    Pros

    Pays better than other jobs involving grocery. The company hasn't yet to completely boom so there is still concern for employee well being. Definitely pays better than the big dogs (Tom Thumb, Kroger, Albertson's, etc). The work environment isn't too, too strict, but they're getting stricter.

    Cons

    Sometimes shifts can be short staffed and at these times the pace has to greatly accelerate. Sometimes there is also a gap between manager expectations and communication with the lower employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your general managers are respecting their lower positioned employees.
