    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits for SM, pay is good.

    Cons

    High turnover rate, constantly asked to work 6 days, low labor budgets, poor pay for employee's.

    Advice to Management

    Must be good doing administrative work cause thats all you do. Must be able to do 100 things a day with no time. Employee's all hate there jobs and pay. HR department and system is a joke. Lawsuits waiting to happen.

    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good work environment

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, nepotism from management.

    Advice to Management

    Head cashiers promoted from cashier should make more than a dollar more than cashiers. That’s hardly a raise considering the workload that comes with the promotion.

    Pros

    Good for people who are creative and smart ; You get the freedom to think for yourself on your feet instead of being a corporate drone. It is good for folks who like a good challenge.

    Cons

    Corporate folks create impossible goals and the lack of infrastructure creates chaos. They are not very transparent or clear and it comes across as backward. You can't tell if they are truly messing with you or are they that disorganized and doesn't know what is going on themselves. They let people get bullied and they run good people off.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and support your team better.

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful management willing to work with you to make the store a better place to shop and work.

    Cons

    Sometimes yearly reviews aren't on time, I've heard from other employees. For other employees it has been hard to get raises. But if you work hard you get what you deserve.

    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I’ll say it again, this can be a fun place to work.

    The food is delicious, healthy, and CHEAP.

    15% discount on all purchases. $5 store credit when managers recognize hard work.

    This company is very lenient on sampling, so free food every now and then.

    Stores are smaller than other retailers so work load isn’t as bad.

    I enjoyed most co-workers.

    Very laid back place, easy to be productive but also have fun.

    Scholarships for qualified students.

    Dress code is simple.

    I enjoyed being on my feet and lifting all day for the work out.

    It’s fairly easy to move up.

    Cons

    Back pain.

    Occasional paper cuts from lifting boxes all day.

    Rude and entitled customers.

    The radio station that plays here is obnoxious.

    Passive aggressive discrimination every now and then.
    I had to avoid working certain departments because some employees came off as racist.

    Hours always got cut, were always inconsistent for younger student workers.

    Thus, pay is terrible for the amount of work you’ll have to do.

    Sometimes you get scolded for not doing the work of 3 people by yourself.

    Only managers and assistant managers got to work 40 hrs a week.

    Managers cut hours to make their bonuses.

    Older workers are better off by making the younger ones worse off, in terms of hours, workload, given tasks.

    Closers tend to feel singled out since they are blamed for every mistake in the department that may not be their fault.

    Some managers and coworkers were mentally abusive because of constant complaining.

    I had to throw away a lot of perfectly edible food. The bosses were obsessed with fresh quality.

    I’d say my biggest complaint here is that the pay check is terrible for anyone that isn’t a manager or assistant manager. NO FINANCIAL SECURITY,

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on selling rather than making everything look nice. Change what goes on display depending on how well it sells rather than how good it looks. A sold out sales floor makes more money than a tidy display that was untouched all day.

    Consider other factors before blaming an employee for something that may not even be their fault.

    Stop hiring people if all you want to do is cut hours. It puts a lot of your people into financial jeopardy.

    Encourage employees to improve their weaknesses rather than harm their self esteem.

    It’s better to leave produce tables low on stock after close so nothing goes bad over night.

    Help departments that are short handed, and cut the intimidation tactic.

    Promote from within and evenly distribute hours so no one is worse off
