    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.

    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice to have a employee discount.

    Cons

    The company went from small to corporate, and was not careful about who they brought in. All of the inspiration of the company founders was lost.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to meet the needs of your employees. If they need a sick leave, offer it to them. Don't start rumors about people. Lift up your team. Be an inspiration. Work the different departments.

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

    Pros

    Working at Sprouts is sometimes very enjoyable, but it depends on the location.

    Cons

    The store I work at has had a terrible GM for 5 months now, many complaints have been made to corporate about his off-putting demeanor. Also I work under a completely incompetent department manager. It gets extremely frustrating, but I have heard that things are much better at other locations.

    Advice to Management

    At least ACT like you care about your employees concerns

    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My employees in the bakery dept. and supervisor were very nice to me. Everyone was really nice and i am sure the managers are doing the best they can.

    Cons

    the freezer is to small. Its always packed and its hard for me to go in just to get anything out to bake. It really frustrated not only me but everyone in the bakery department. I asked the managers if there is anything they could do about it but nothing changes. One time they put 6 full palettes in the freezer, mind you its way small, and i literally had to climb in the freezer. My back started hurting having to pull the palettes in and out the freezer everyday. One of the managers would get onto me about it every time i pulled them out and i had to explain to him that there is no way i could squeeze myself into the freezer (its a small store so i'm sure they are doing the best they can but it really is stressful).

    Advice to Management

    We need a bigger freezer and a new oven/poofer. The poofer broke like twice in the same month.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers were nice, benefits are great, and the employee specific discounts are amazing. They have lofty goals they are always trying to meet...

    Cons

    That being said they fall short in meeting those goals and don't give people at the store level the opportunity to solve problems. Understaffed in my store and upper management seemed unfamiliar with how stores and departments functioned

    Advice to Management

    Know all departments you are in charge of

    Pros

    meet a lot of new people, makes time go by fast

    Cons

    They overwork you when they don;t have enough employees

    Advice to Management

    If you see people working hard, don't overwork them. You'll push them away. Support the team member if they need help.

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

    Pros

    Good team, generally positive atmosphere and morale in the store and the company. There are opportunities for different kinds of work and promotions.

    Cons

    The work that an assistant grocery manager does isn't too different from the work of a grocery clerk. However, the AGM has more pressure on them, and this is very heavy work.

    Advice to Management

    Understand, please, that even if you are paying us fairly in relations to all other employees and people in the same position, we may still have a difficult time affording basics if we are working in an expensive part of the country.
