    Pros

    15% discount, cool
    Nice people in management, generally
    Good quality products

    Cons

    REALLY understaffed. I transferred from another store in Southern California to a new location and was shocked by how few people there were.
    Lots of broken/old tools that never get replaced. When an order for anything gets put in it takes forever to get fixed or replaced. Something simple like a squeegee will take a month.

    Advice to Management

    Fix things that are broke! Hire more people and try to get them to stay by fixing things that are broke!

    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.

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

    Pros

    Comfortable culture, if you get in a decent store it's pretty fast-paced, part-time availability, a few freebies if you are on the app, educational opportunities

    Cons

    TERRIBLE PAY, advancement opportunities are iffy, flagrant favoritism, unorganized, not flexible with regard to working with employee schedules, either under or overstaffed, asked to move to different departments to help out without applicable pay (or lose your job)

    Advice to Management

    It might just be my store (506-Las Vegas), but upper Management needs to take a long hard look at those they have placed in leadership roles. I understand that everybody has their favorite co-workers, but to promote based on that is unfair to more qualified candidates. Personally, I have been approached in an unprofessional manner by head cashiers and creeped out by dept. heads. Beyond that, it would probably help you keep good people if you paid us what we're worth. Less than $10 an hour is NOT a livable wage anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice because you the manager for a reason, but one thing I will say is that when say something go by it and stick to that because that's why people leave.

    Pros

    Good crew of people to working with. Fun. You don't need a gym membership. The lower mangers are pretty easy going and good people.

    Cons

    This job wears you out physically. Upper Management pretend you don't exist. Wages are "set." There is NO room for negotiation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having "set" wages. Pay people what they deserve.
