    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Better benefits, scholarship program, community outreach programs, flexible schedules, and lots of opportunity

    Cons

    Sometimes it doesn’t always feel like it’s a good opportunity, you might meet people who have a lot of complaining but not a lot of solutions on how to resolve it. Sometimes the expectations seem overwhelming, and sometimes they are. Sometimes the wrong people get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Be more real with your employees, don’t be afraid to commit time to creating a happier individual. Listen to team concerns, hold your managers accountable when their teams are unhappy with them, and express more about all the great things you do instead of coming down hard. Be more involved for success.

    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The customers, though diverse are all terrific ! We have a mix of Asians, Spanish, Russians, and also some very wealthy customer.

    Cons

    Working more than 8:30 hrs 6-9 days a week. I work 2 jobs and sometimes it works out that I only get 1 day off after working 9 days straight.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and the "Yes" policy should always go hand in hand. We always say the "customer" is always right, but sometimes they make mistakes, or misread a price, and it's our job to assist them, and make sure they are satisfied. But at x's it would be nice if management backed it's employees and helped us deal with difficult customers, instead of blaming us for their mistakes...

    Pros

    Terrific work environment that includes a family friendly atmosphere and room to go grow and thrive! A perfect place to work for a college student looking to enjoy their fun money!

    Cons

    After having spent nearly 5 1/2 years with the company and having seen the company's transition from a privately owned business to a publicly traded corporation, it is sad to see that some of Sprout's attention to their employees has slipped slightly in favor of pleasing it's new found stock market shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Be more enthusiastic when addressing team members on the importance of being a sproutie! The only reason folks have a job at one of our many store locations is because the customer chooses to shop with US! We must strive to not only improve the customer's shopping experience, but improve upon certain aspects of employee life as well.

    Pros

    Great coworkers with lots of hours to pick up. Always busy shifts every time.

    Cons

    Usually very poor management in multiple stores caused by horrible corporate pressure. The pressure caused for sour attitudes nearly every week and it made working for the company feel like you were greatly taken advantage of all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Despite being lectured like it was the end of the world by corporate members who have little to no knowledge of how daily operations work, try to keep a positive mood for your team members. Genuine positivity really helps in operations, not being strict/angry all the time and threatening the people who directly impact your hours with write-ups.

    Pros

    good flexibility with hours, management is mostly fair

    Cons

    they do not compensate you appropriately for your hard work

    Advice to Management

    Implement a better review policy, providing us with a review method that does not allow for persons to attain the maximum possible is not a fair review policy. Even the best persons I have worked with cannot attain the maximum review score due to its design.
