    Overall Good experience

    Apr 30, 2022 - Sales Associate/Cashier in Monument, CO
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay Good benefits for all full-time employees I had a great experience working there because my manager was amazing and always did his best to meet the needs of the employees. But I've heard other stores are not as enjoyable because of poor management.

    Cons

    Not enough workers to stalk the shelves. Everyone does everything there. If you are a Manager of a department you will be expected to help out in other departments when needed. Which makes it hard to fully give your attention to the department you are actually responsible for. Managers are always very stressed to meet corporate's expectations.

    Pros

    Decent pay for a grocery store and Vita Bucks is a plus

    Cons

    They will over work you for what youre getting paid. They micromanage too much and only ACT like they care about you when they only care about money.

    Truly Amazing

    Apr 26, 2022 - Head Cashier in Highlands Ranch, CO
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Vitamin Bucks: For every hour you work, you get $1 in Vitamin Bucks to use for ANYTHING in the store! Easily grow in the company! Very supportive environment! Clean and safe! Lots to do, if you like that! Natural Grocers does just about everything in it's power to make sure everybody is happy with their workplace. Natural Grocers is also constantly supporting the environment and our communities in tons of different ways that are super beneficial to the earth (that includes our animals and ourselves). I'm truly happy to be a part of this company!

    Cons

    So many promotions to keep up with at the registers. Not enough people to get all of the tasks done because my store specifically doesn't "make enough" to hire more people.
