I wish I could give zero stars. The management is horrible. Masks have been required for employees for months. Some employees are having health issues from wearing masks. I was able to get a doctor’s note for a face shield because I was having a long list of issues. Some co-workers confided in me that they were having issues and the managers didn’t give a crap. One employee said his vision was going blurry and he was having migraines which he had never had before. The managers literally said to my face that they only cared about themselves and keeping their jobs.
A couple of months ago a psychotic customer freaked out about a cashier drinking water. So management banned drinking water on the sales floor. The cashiers are pretty much tied to their registers for at least 2 hours at a time and you work up a sweat and get thirsty really fast when the store is busy. I only recently found out that the cashiers were not able to drink water because all the cashiers were complaining about being dehydrated and they were looking really run down. When I said something to the store manager he said it was only supposed to be a two day thing and he would tell the cashiers they could drink water again but he never told them. A pregnant cashier had to get a doctor’s note to drink water!! I can not believe how insane people have gotten and Sprouts is catering to the mentally ill.
So a few days ago they started requiring masks for customers too. They will in fact, as another reviewer said, chase you down, yell and cuss at you and call the cops. The work environment has become very hostile, unsafe and unbearable.
Also, we were told to wear the same surgical masks for 10 days. I tried to tell management that this is unsanitary and of course they couldn’t care less. Even wearing the same mask for a full day is unsanitary. Masks are meant to be changed every hour or so. We have some employees who wear their mask until it has brown stains and a hole in the nose from adjusting it all day. Just apply the same logic that made Sprouts stop requiring all employees to wear gloves…these people are complete retards.
All the employees at the front end yesterday were gossiping about how horrible it is to not wear a mask. They were bragging about calling the cops on people. They are very eager to enforce the new rule so beware.
