    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 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Like the up-scale environment/ farm's market feel. Great people! FB & Ron are great. Loved how you could wear jeans and facial hair. They accepted each person's style and were ok with it. I really in joyed working there.

    Cons

    None really, I had an unforseen medical issue come up because of how my doctor was treating me, which was wrong causing side effects. Sprouts worked with me and helped me through all of it. Great place to work with great people.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees, the leardship is good and doing that creates a desire to work harder for you and grow. Give second chances to people who through no fault of their own, endure, medical life events, they are still the hardworking and loyal employee, even more so after going through said event.

    Pros

    To have benefits with Bluecross Blueshield, is A plus.
    They have a survey you can take and get like $20 off what you pay for health insurance every month.

    15% entire Store Discount Card for you and one family member.
    $5 star cards they give you when you are doing a good job.
    Overall, I feel appreciated.

    Cons

    Turnover rate= At an all time high.
    Opportunities for advancement=low
    They like to cut your hours of you're working in the front end.

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

    Pros

    Able to move up quickly and get increased hourly rate.
    Easily made friends with fellow co-workers.
    There is always something to do even when business is slow.
    Able to help customers find items in the store and give tips and opinions about products and items I have personally experienced with.
    Made friends with the regulars I have seen almost every time I have been scheduled per week.
    Allowed to help in other departments when they're understaffed (the boss will think you're reliable and might give you a raise if you say yes to helping in a different department when you're not scheduled to work).
    While putting misplaced items back where they're supposed to be seems to be an annoying thing, it actually allows you to memorize where the item is and able to help customers locate it in the future.

    Cons

    Having to push carts in 90 to 100 degree weather and also while it's pouring rain.
    Difficult customers would complain that I am not bagging "correctly" and push me aside to bag their items themselves.
    Lifting and pushing heavy items is a requirement.
    You're most likely bagging and standing for long periods of time especially on extremely busy days.
    You're required to clean up human feces off toilets and hopefully they don't get it on the wall.

    Pros

    Team work, 15% Discount on purchases, Company where they educate you teach and training is good at most locations. Friendly upper management

    Cons

    Salary based on regional how he likes you not on passed experience and productivity, at asst mgr position raises based on how your store does alone not on your work performance

    Advice to Management

    Set a standard income for upper management positions to be fair to all!! I have 40 years experience and work 12 hours a day I am very productive yet there are new hires into my position that make more then I do?

    Pros

    It's fast paced and there is a lot of learning. Opportunity to advance rapidly. Opportunity to bonus frequently if you work hard.

    Cons

    They will start you at a low pay if they can. The scheduling can be tough in retail and sometimes you can be sent home early to save budgets.

    Advice to Management

    More training for people that are advancing

    Pros

    Always parking available, alot of places to eat for lunch as well. And you get a 15 percent off employee discount and an extra 15 percent off card for whom ever you share your fridge with.

    Cons

    No over time ever! They hired a lot of people for the new store and its not even 6 months later and every ones time is getting cut in half. How am I supposed to live off of 20 hr a week. Literally everyone is quitting except for me. And still no hours. Im in the great depression until i can get some hours! How messed up is that.

    Advice to Management

    You should only hire teens because they still live with their parents and do not need to pay rent and it is perfect because they do not want to work much so 20 hrs would be good for them.
