      Pros

      I learned a lot here about working in a deli, working at a health foods grocery store and working on a small team in a fast working environment with lots of deadlines, lists and protocols.

      Cons

      The management doesn't actually listen to the employees despite the "open door" policy. I say this because every time there was a lack in production or unmet expectations, the management never took the time to listen to what the employees needed to get their job done. Instead they took that opportunity to tell us how poorly we were doing our job. This company doesn't weed out bad managers and as a result, they're losing me and many other good employees due to stress, over-work and under-pay.

      Bad and Getting worse

      Pros

      Weekly Pay and good co workers.

      Cons

      Micromanagement has been bad over the past several years but it is getting worse now with the new CEO hired last year. Sprouts seems to take the position of everything is the stores fault and nothing is the fault of the buyers or the warehouse and if anything is brought up about it no one want to here it or they will just say yeah we know but thats how it is. Store managers do nothing but work to manipulate anything they can to make themselves look better to corporate. Department managers really don't have much say in anything other that to be blamed for whats wrong and no one cares what the department managers have to say who most of the time are the best employees in the store.

      Pros

      Quality Customers on a daily basis and mostly dedicated, positive, and genuinely nice pleasant co-workers. Luckily, only one or two weirdos here and there.

      Cons

      Low weekly hours and your phone goes on blast ringing off the hook on your days off...getting asked to come in to work. Really? Why not just give better hours with a fuller schedule initially rather than calling and raining on someone's plans. I was hired as a full-time employee, yet average 20-25 hours per week since I started. Like, huh???

      Employees and coworkers Exposure to customers that are and want better for themselves

      Cons

      •One position can turn into many of you show interest, and management will exploit that with no compensation •Pay isn’t great •The company wants to look best for only photos and there’s no care for the customers anymore •constant walks from corporate for them to stress the team and demoralize the department managers and employees •upper management will not own up to what they call for, and there’s constant “why did you do this” when they told you to a day before

      Pros

      relatively chill work environment (unless its the holidays) consistent weekly work good about requiring masks for customers employees generally stick together access to good food and produce

      Cons

      the employees are miserable because the managers are miserable. every day is like a high school soap opera with no one taking accountability for their actions. you have to be quite literally perfect to get a 4 on your review and even then the raise that comes with that is inadequate. management never holds huddles, we are constantly kept out of the loop (and then reprimanded anyway). incentives are only for higher-ups moving up in the company is a joke; they will just bring someone new in and pay them more than you sprouts made billions of dollars during the pandemic and is spending $300 millon buying back their stocks but still cannot pay their employees a livable wage. its embarrassing the pride they boast since it is all a farce.

      Good Place to work if you’re a student , hard work pays off (:

      Jan 10, 2021 - Head Cashier in Brentwood, CA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent discount on healthy products, amazing people/employees to work with , paid every week , good benefits, opportunities for advancement (I’ve worked here as a cashier for about 10 months now and got the opportunity to become a Head Cashier within 8-9 months ) , overall a pretty easy going and good job while going to school or needing time to do/work on other things on the side.

      Cons

      *Schedule is random as hell (but is posted about two weeks in advance and you can manage your availability on the online schedule) as a cashier I wasn’t getting enough hours, but when I asked for more they would work with me as best as they could and would call me in to pick up a shift pretty often when needed . * Dealing with Customers can be draining (if you aren’t a people person I would not recommend working as a cashier) * Front end can be under staffed sometimes (especially during this pandemic, it can get pretty hectic when trying to keep lines down) * You pretty much train yourself , what management expects, they don’t clearly teach, but eventually you can get in the flow of things * Overall not getting enough hours seems like the biggest Con for most employees if your not a manager or shift lead of some sort , But if you work efficiently and communicate with Management you will have a better experience

      Nepotism and unclean working conditions

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      No pros at all. Usually I would say I at least enjoyed the people I worked with, but the turnover was so bad you never get to know anyone even in your own department and the people how have stayed there are bitter or favorite of the management and would never show up to work.

      Cons

      Every imanigable issue you could imagine. The company has a major issue with sexual harassment, and if you report or say anything their a good chance of getting fired and even threatened with legal action. The building and experiment is all out dated or doesn't work meaning many things are not stored properly and not cleaned properly. There were known issue with customers and staff getting sick due to theses issues. The store are also not matinee, issue with mold, water, rodents, exposed wiring and shelf were the product were stored are old and the was always a chance of them breaking and hundreds of pounds the product falling on you. I worked at 3 different stores and they all had the same issues. the whole company is ran as cheaply as possible. the company only care about sales and profit even if it kills the company and turns people away form shopping and working there. Upper management only cares about their bonus and not the health of the company. If the company were to fail upper management would still get paid and they would just move on to an other company. They compony has been on the decline for a long time and all they care about is milking it for every penny they can get before it shuts down.
