Head Cashier (Current Employee), Edmond, OK – December 17, 2014
For the most part, employees at Sprouts are happy individuals and are a joy to work with. However, the current store manager is a micro-manager far beyond necessary. Instead of letting his department managers know what he needs of them, he does it all himself and writes them up afterwards for not doing it.
Besides the store manager, it is a decent – more... job. – less
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Cedar Park, TX – December 13, 2014
Pros: 15% discount
Cons: management, unfair treatment, no hours, and low pay
New store, did great the first couple of weeks but now it's struggling, so hours are being cut. You can't really live that well on 12 hours a week at $9 and hour but management doesn't care. If you complain you get cut even further. Managers don't care to know your name unless you flirt with them. Which is the only way you get recognition at this particular – more... store. You could be swamped with customers and need help but the manager has your back up in the office talking about movies and pie, then that person sitting and talking will get a reward for excellent service. HR lady is absolutely useless. After 3 months direct deposit still hasn't gone through and all she says is it takes time, THREE MONTHS!! Regional comes in and could not care less to ask if there are any issues in the store. The idea of this store is great. Healthy living for less, but the way you get it for less is low wages, no hours, and exceptionally poor management. – less
Floral / Product Clerk (Current Employee), Woodland Hills, CA – December 6, 2014
Pros: nice people to work with, easy job
Cons: no room for advancement, very little hours
Sprouts is an easy company to work for. There isn't a lot of room for advancement when all your bosses care about is that bonus at the end of the year. The people I work with on the other hand are almost like another family to me. Clients are more upscale and always nice. The job is fairly easy but don't expect too many hours.
Administrative Assistant / Customer Service (Current Employee), Broomfield, CO – December 4, 2014
Pros: 15% employee discount, the co-workers.
Cons: healthcare, hours
I enjoy working at Sprouts. My co-workers are friendly, funny, and we get along like a family. I have learned a lot about customer service, and especially working hand by hand with the administrator as her assistant. It feels amazing helping employees with their daily needs. The hardest part about the job is trying to figure out the daily financial – more... mistakes that happened throughout the day. – less

Pros: discounts, healthy food to eat on my lunch, nice workers
Cons: i had to do alot that wasnt in my job description, but it wasnt nothing i cant handle. and getting carts
I really liked working there. I enjoyed every bit of my job, just not getting carts outside when it was 102 degrees outside. But far as everything else it was easy and fun. I want to get back into grocery markets again.

Vitamin Clerk (Current Employee), Austin TX – November 9, 2014
Pros: in store discount
Cons: lack of competent management, communication or planning skills. minimal pay for amount of work required
Their priority is sales not employees. With 20+ years of nutritional supplement knowledge, and as much supervisory experience I'm the most competent employee in their vitamin department but my hours have been constantly cut back in favor of employees that have little to no experience in supplements, sales, or supervision. The upper management lack coherent – more... management skills, communication and planning and were unwilling to listen to recommendations. I was promised an assistant manager position in a new store but when I got passed over for that in favor of someone else with less knowledge and experience the department manager hid from me and relegated me to night shift where he didn't have to interact with me. Because of my extensive knowledge they would prefer to keep me at the bottom as merely a sales person but I can't afford to live on the amount of pay they're insulting me with. I've been watching the store I worked in implode on itself and its time to get out before things completely fall apart. – less
Bakery Manager (Current Employee), Albuquerque, NM – November 8, 2014
Pros: fun employees
Cons: horrible pay, not friendly management.
Nobody really knows what they are doing as far as upper management. They try their hardest to not give raises and don't know much about their departments functions and how to do anything outside of desk work. This place is just fun to work at, it doesn't pay well and the upper management is heartless. I would suggest this job to a high schooler because – more... they pay you like a high schooler no matter your experience. they cut corners wherever they can, including not hiring where needed and not giving sufficent raises. i know a 45 yr old that hasn't made 10 an hour even after 5 years. pretty sad. – less
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Henderson, NV – October 30, 2014
Clocking in to work everyone would have a smile on their face and be ready to work. I learned their "YES" program, It's when a customer gets whatever they want to keep them happy for ex. a customer tells you they bought a head of lettuce here and it's brown now and they want a new one, You have to tell them yes in order to keep them happy, even if they – more... are rude about it. The management was great I loved them, they were always happy and nice to everyone but also got everything done. My co-workers were great as well, I made a lot of friends at that store. The hardest part of the job was the heat while I was rounding up the carts in the parking lot and bringing them inside the store. It was Nevada, what do you expect I still loved to do it! The most enjoyable part of the job was that everyone their was like a big family, we all opened the store together it was great. – less
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – October 28, 2014
Pros: employee discounts, weekly pay checks.
Cons: unfriendly employees, management needs improvement towards employee problems.
A typical day at work. Learning experience was pretty much basic for me. I did have previous bakery clerk experience so I knew what to expect. As for management, mainly department managers, communication with their employees at work would have been great instead of them calling from home over the telephone, at least that's what I had problems with, – more... with my department manager. The co-workers I worked with was good. Any conflicts I had with another employee management was there to work things out. The hardest part of this job I'd say is the constant demand of restocking merchandise and being quick on your feet. The most enjoyable part of the job was the hours I worked and the location where I worked. – less
Bulk Clerk (Former Employee), Flagstaff, AZ – October 28, 2014
Days all ways varied, but I gained skills in Most of the major departments From Grocery, front end and much more. Management changed in the short time I was there but all ways Friendly and supportive. Co-workers were friendly and supportive too. Hardest part was the changing hours (going from over night shifts to day shifts) Most enjoyable part was – more... getting to experience a variety of departments. – less
