    Work on your own most of the time, discount card and perks.

    Certain managers can be unflexible and unrealistic about your workload.
    You need to look like youre on crack if you want to be noticed in this company.

    Pros

    Only Pro is that you work in a health related grocery store.

    Cons

    They randomly change your schedule without contacting you. You get hired for one job, but they place you in another. They claim to have plenty of hours but 4.5 hours for one work week I don't consider a job at all. Go work at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, not here!

    Pros

    They will work with your schedule (mostly), fairly easy work, most people working there are pretty nice

    Cons

    Management can be rude or at least come off that way, they don't really seem to care about what happens as long as they look good,

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking out your issues on the employees, Understand that employees are only human and they will make mistakes.

    I worked at Sprouts Farmers Market full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I mean... It's a job?

    Cons

    DO NOT, I repeat, do NOT treat this as a career. This is a sham. No one in I.T. on a service desk should be making less than $45,000. This company pays less than 75% of that. I came from a store to the corporate level, tried to drink the Kool-Aid, but while other companies are innovating their I.T., this company is struggling to even get to where the world was 10 years ago. This company gives away all its core business functions to vendors, making you a complete tool for your career growth. You are committing a sin to yourself working for a company like Sprouts. Corporate turnover is high, store turnover is high. The company does not care if you quit and find a better opportunity elsewhere.

    Worst, the company practices the brainwashing effect typical of organizations that shelve tribal knowledge among its most tenured employees. Rather than taking a page out of progressive employers bu increasing cross-functional transparency, Sprouts encourages tribal knowledge and gives away its power to vendors to disassociate blame from any wrongdoing from its completely disorganized process framework.

    Benefits are horrible, worse than what other organizations are willing to pay. If you want to stick to a company that values you for your IT career roadmap, you need to look at the Fortune 100 and find companies in that list. Sprouts is not on there yet at the time of this review.

    Work/life is a joke, when I worked to train in a different role, management enforced that I basically be on call, whenever. But then they would flip the tables and claim unauthorized overtime when it was convenient them, basically when payroll came down on them.

    Speaking of payroll, this company's senior management WILLINGLY gave everyone's social security number away and no one got fired for it.

    Yes, I'm serious. This is a company you wanna work for? STAY FAR AWAY. They DO NOT RESPECT YOUR IDENTITY HERE.

    Company cultural values here are a joke. They are not practiced regularly and you ask any employee what they are off the top of their head and they won't be able to tell you, it's just stuff that goes on a placard and stays there.

    If you are still willing to work for this company, research this company on LinkedIn, and you'll see how many people in senior management have bailed from working this company. It's a train wreck.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth. Value employees that go to school and compensate them accordingly. Stop smashing employees that are trying to do better not only for the company for themselves. And worst, when an employee finds a better job elsewhere don't pull a hypocrite move and start trying to friend them, this is how you get bad reviews on Glassdoor and other social media platforms.

    Stop looking at the bottom line and start valuing your employees as assets. This does not mean sending emails that say "good job" or buying a free lunch every now and then. I mean REALLY value your employees. Pull off what other Fortune 100 companies do to treat their employees right. They'll treat you right in return and actually stay.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot and move up if you are in the right store with the right people.
    You get paid weekly
    flexible with the schedules

    Cons

    Corporate needs to get it together! every year sprouts changes what once was great. trying to cut corners. the moral is ridiculous in every store you go to. peers are not happy. Management seems to have no clue what they are doing. Sprouts doesn't even follow its own culture anymore. They are lost in what was Henrys and Wild Oats.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a backbone! get your people in line and focus on making everyone work together as a whole. if you show that you are passionate, your employees will take after you.

    Pros

    Awesome employees to work with, customers know you are there to help them. Managers are there to help you and work with your schedule, especially if you're a student.

    Cons

    Some managing staff, but that differs from store to store. Late nights occasionally. If you want to move up in the company, you have to work for it (this isn't really a con, you just have to be persistent).

    Pros

    Healthy food and nice place in general great coworkers.

    Cons

    Manager doesn't know how to do his job. Has favorites. Not much expanding in the company unless you are a favorite.
