    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great concept and philosophy started with the proper strategy and metrics in place. It has seen tremendous growth and has succeeded up to a point.

    Cons

    Mortgaging cheap, short term sales and profits like giving away memberships and diluting the value of a membership,
    Current leadership is weak and has been put in place solely to meet corporate diversity goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CHANGE leadership.... get back to the basics!

    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonably fair. Get along with most people. Like the title says, I've had worse jobs.

    Cons

    The constant understaffing, especially in light of annual events in town that should not be taking anyone by surprise. Always big sales days, always poorly planned for. And the communication... nonexistent. I know my job, but if there's something that specifically needs to be done, COMMUNICATE THAT! I'm damn good, but I'm not a mind-reader.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get us some damn help! Cross-coded in three departments, and help REGULARLY in four others besides my primary. I don't mind helping out, but when I'm the only one covering three departments, TWO of which are supposed to be staffed at all times, we're going to run into problems.

    Pros

    Great management, easy going, laid back work environment, everyone treats you like you are part of a big family

    Cons

    You definitely don't get paid what your worth and a full time position is very hard to get. You are lucky if you even get 20 hours a week. You have to work there a year part time for benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to get your employees more hours even if it's cross training in another department. Employees simply can't make a living with that kind of paycheck.

    I worked at Sam's Club

    Pros

    Working conditions were nice. The job was easy. People were friendly.

    Cons

    There were no set standards on things. For example when closing, one night things were ok one way and then another night, it had to be done a totally different way.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are decent. Atmosphere is cool

    Cons

    It's a division of Walmart. Some managers need people skills, hard to get equipment fixed or new equipment when needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it's hard to teach people skills, but please try.
