Company outlook

Responsible Sourcing

We partner with suppliers that align with our culture of valuing environmental systems, respecting human rights and protecting animal welfare. We encourage our suppliers to advance responsible sourcing practices and hold them to high standards.  

 

Responsible Operations

At Sprouts, we are committed to operating our business in a way that minimizes our impact on the environment and safeguards the health of our communities. The major components of Responsible Operations include our Food Rescue Program, where we donate food to people in need through local hunger relief agencies; our Composting/Animal Feed Program, in which we divert food waste away from landfills to composting facilities or cattle farms; and our Recycling Program, where we recycle cardboard and other recyclable packaging from our stores and distribution centers.

 

Responsible Neighbor

We believe we have a responsibility to be a positive influence in the communities where our customers and team members live, work, and play. Our direct and in-kind donations touch millions of lives every year. Through our newly created Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation, we are excited to contribute even more to the health of our communities through meaningful partnerships with local non-profit organizations.

 

Responsible Building

We incorporate energy efficient equipment in all we do as we open new stores and reinvigorate existing locations. We look for ways to build our stores with water and energy conservation in mind, such as installing skylights to harvest natural light, using energy efficient equipment, and preferring low-flow water systems. Building responsibly starts with the right store design and a commitment to preserving natural resources. For instance, all new Sprouts stores are built to LEED Silver specifications.

What I like about the company

Has great values and excellent items for healthy living great prices

What I dislike about the company

The prior Upper management didnt care what went on in the store so the culture is opposite of whet they preach. Store managers play favorites gives hours to the people who doesnt deserve them and cut hours the store manager dislikes

  • Employee

Company culture

Below market pay, over demanding job expectations, no guarantee of hours even when scheduled (can and will be reduced if that think necessary).

Teamwork

Store level teamwork is great. Trainer and regional level management is no help at all. Just complainers.

Communication

No communication at all. Only when trainers come in do they berate everyone for not following their instructions when their instructions were non existent or so unclear no one know what to do.
