Very short staffed. High expectations for the pay. High expectations for the staff given. The prices are very high, which causes customers t chose other places which the company holds you accountable for. Its a job if you need one, but once you have reached this level, you can do better for employment.

The culture and atmosphere here is very fast paced, while fun and enjoyable. It requires hard work and dedication. Those who work hard are noticed and appreciated. Those who stick through the hard times are rewarded.
It is very much a team, whereas you may be doing more than in your job description, because the more you know the more valuable you are!
Management really appreciates those who are proactive. Examples could be as simple as picking up a piece of paper in your path, even if you are interacting with a customer. Another example could be jumping in and helping the meat department unload a pallet to the cooler, especially if it’s in your way.
These little things help the store overall, and attribute to a happy workplace environment. The customers are happy, your fellow employees look at you like a rockstar, and the management see you as potential for promotion.
I do want to add that if don’t work to the managers standards, they will schedule you less hours to give hours to employees who do work. Why would you give hours to two people if one person could do the same amount of work?
Work hard and it WILL pay off. If you can’t, then retail and food service is not for you.

The culture at my store is anger and it's been very uncomfortable almost all associates are angry, abused and on edge for fear of being terminated.
There's no training at this franchise, like none at all, orientation is 3 mins just collecting your personal information, i have been asked to help all over the store with zero training.
The store manager that hired me told me i was going to be full time, 2 weeks vacation, closed on Thanksgiving etc.
My first day on i was told that i would be part time, found and talked to the store manager that hired me, she told me that i was not full time and i needed to prove myself.
I eat a ton of anyway from my department managers who tell me I'm blind (which I'm over half) and how i need to do more, when I'm usually working by myself.
This company knows they should train people, which a district manager said he knew lacks in the standard of training.
If you really need a job then i guess take this, but don't stop looking the broken promises are just a tiny scratch on the lack of integrity, back stabbing, threats, hour editing (they will cut your over time right out of the books and not care) and bull you'll have to endure.

You can’t find a company that treats you worse than here. Women are paid drastically less and more is expected. WAKE UP!!!! Closing stores should be a sign. You best hope Sprouts buys you out and cleans house. Dreadful workplace.

I have worked at fresh thyme for a little over a month now. The management is great, the other employees are very nice, and best of all the managers listen to your needs schedule wise. The only issue I have seen so far is that if you work in the front end as a cashier you do more than just being a cashier. Such as takin trash out, getting carts, doing "projects" such as laying on the floor and scrubbing under things, and cleaning spills all around the store. Which I was't informed that I would hAve to be a janitor aswell as a cashier.
