Does Sprouts Farmers Market offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Flexible schedule, good co-workers, and mostly friendly managers. That's about it.

Cons

Understaffed, high turnover even among manager positions, general lack of sympathy for employees from corporate. Tiny break room, employees are often lied to about the details of their positions. Under funded stores lead to many issues of safety. Pay is far below Sprouts competitors, benefits package is not that great. Very low morale among team members and department managers.

Advice to Management

Either close stores that don't make money or staff those appropriately by raising compensation, instead of running a skeleton crew.

Does Sprouts Farmers Market offer massages?

Pros

You might get a free pint of ice cream every other month.

Cons

Working here in general is a con. Don’t do it.

Advice to Management

Maybe pay your employees what they deserve to be paid. Give them raises when you promise them to employees instead of finding loopholes to back out of it each time.

Does Sprouts Farmers Market offer dental insurance?

Pros

Well it's retail. Benefits are pretty affordable I pay nearly $30 a check for health insurance including vision and dental. Its been a good job for the mean time it pays alright. If you are wanting to be a non manager or supervisor you can expect your hours to fluctuate. This is a busy work type of job there is little to no down time. You do a lot in this store at least the front end from my experience does more than just check people out you are stocking, cleaning, facing etc. Its an okay on between job but if you're wanting a full time position you'll need to get a second job at times if you're not a manager or supervisor.

Cons

I have been working at this job for 5 years now you could say I am very burnt out. My experience at this company was not all bad but it's not paying my bills or fulfilling me at this point. With that being said take what I say with a grain of salt.

Advice to Management

This company is very corporate at this point I wouldn't say it's all the managers fault honestly but it's all about profit for the company. Maybe just care more treat the employees like people and not just workers.

Does Sprouts Farmers Market offer employee discounts?

Pros

Good benefits, 15% employee discount, flexible hours (depending on your position), opportunities for growth, transfers allowed, offers vacation and sick pay.

Cons

low pay, low employee moral (due to management), poor leadership, unreasonably high expectations, poor treatment of department managers, often overbearing and unreasonable work loads, poor communication.

Advice to Management

Sprouts is great for high school, college aged, and adults with other priorities due to pros that I've listed and is overall a good company with great values. However, there is a lot of issues with management and pay that ultimately effects employee moral and the work culture in each store. In regards to pay, long time employees are paid significantly less than new hires. This puts a damper on people's views of the company and effects their work ethic and attitude towards their jobs. Because of this employees don't feel like they or the long hours and hard work they put towards everything they do isn't valued. Most of the issues come with management and store leadership, which also plays into the poor employee moral and the overall work environment. Although there have been great managers throughout my experience, most of them have been problematic (but I'll refer to the most recent manager at my location because she also has been the longest working manager there as well). To start, communication is horrible and practically doesn't exist. Store leadership expects you to come to them for everything instead of them going out of their way to check in with department managers (which should be done when they first arrive in the morning). Schedules are often changed without discussing it with department managers or their employees, and daily tasks are handled the same way and not brought up until the last minute (if it's a time sensitive issue). According to them you're suppose to come to them for everything, when it should be equal for the most part. It's often the employees fault (according to them) if this happens rather than store management taking part of the blame for their actions by not communicating. Management is never active on the sales floor helping certain departments or employees, but rather sitting in the office all day while watching and micromanaging every single employee. They often pick favorites as well, and those people are expected to give directions for store leadership instead of them going out of their way to do it themselves. Favorites often get away with doing less work than everyone else, who is punished for doing the same. There seems to be a clear hierarchy and separation between store management and employees. Punishment through belittling discussions of character and threatening people's jobs is very common. Nitpicking plays a huge part in this as well and is often a tactic used to reprimand employees who work well and do their jobs (as they should). Even talking with your department manager for too long while trying to get caught up on what's going on and what needs to get done are not allowed. There's never any positive critique or reinforcement. Everything is negative and it always focused on how you're not doing good enough and could do more. Department managers especially receive the brunt of all this. Although clerks are allowed to have flexibility with their work schedules, management is never able to do the same. You're always expected to stay hours past your shift (regardless if whether it's necessary to do so or not). A manager's value is solely based off of how many hours they spend at the store, otherwise you're not doing enough according to them. For department managers a healthy work life balance is not possible. This leads into the workload that expected to be completed by all employees. Regardless of your position, you are expected to take on more work than what's possible to complete for one person. You're often to expected to break down full loads, stock the sales floor, help customers, and complete other tasks with little to no people or help from management. And if it all doesn't get done that day, you suffer the consequences when in reality it's not possible to do. The turnover rate is extremely high because of all this (which is greatly caused by store management). Treating employees respectfully, communicating, understanding their situation/offering help, and paying more would greatly increase the employee moral and make it a much better working environment.

Good benefits, 15% employee discount, flexible hours (depending on your position), opportunities for growth, transfers allowed, offers vacation and sick pay.
