    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, getting days off or managing your schedule is very easy.

    Cons

    Hours can vary. Management is not very good. Expect to do multiple jobs outside your title. Extremely difficult to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more organized in employees scheduling request, be more mindful with amount of task given to an employee, and no misinformation between managers.

    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market full-time

    Pros

    Employee discounts, decent benefits, great customers, nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Lack of work/life balance, structure, and long-term career pay (use this position as a stepping stone for job advancement). Be pro-active if you need schedule adjustments for personal reasons, to get more hours, or need coverage during your shift as every job position in Sprouts entails everyone to multi-task into different departments with no training. Use this job as the "interim" (school, etc.) before you set yourself up for another job that you will be content with.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say to them, they are essentially clerks who stayed within the company for a long time and received most of their training while on the job. As a brand, Sprouts is great for consumers, but as an employee, be ready to engage in a culture where there is a lack of cohesiveness and communication between corporate, management, and team members. Good luck.

    I have been working at Sprouts Farmers Market part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job is extremely easy, and the work/store culture is pretty laid back as long as everything is going smoothly. Particularly in the Bulk department, you have a lot of freedom since there is only ever one Bulk employee working at any time. That means all work has to be done by you, but that you also don't have anyone to report to during your shift. The 15% discount is another nice benefit

    Cons

    - Corporate makes it very clear that their first priority is saving money, which reflects in your pay. I was offered a full time management position that only came with a $1/hour raise. They justified it by saying that I already do the job of Bulk Manager, and the only thing that would change is that I would always have to work 40 hours a week - Management will intentionally hire unqualified/unmotivated people so they can pay them minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Reward good performance with good raises
