I have been working at Sam's Club full-time (less than an year)

Pros

It's a good company with a stable job security. It is an indoor job with lots of room to move around. I like the health benefits, and the people for the most part.

Cons

They pay you a rate that is based on how long you have been there, rather than what you are actually doing. A cashier that has a pay grade 3 who has been there for 2 years can make 10 bucks an hour, yet a checkout supervisor who has been there for 5 months can make less than that. That makes no sense. The boss makes less than a cashier, yet he tell him/her what to do and is his BOSS! Crazy!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the pay rate the person deserves for the position he is working, and stop paying employees just based on how long they have worked there. The base pay needs to be higher for certain positions.

    Pros

    Fun, busy, upbeat environment. Hard work is rewarded, great team to work with, all in all scheduling is very flexible.

    Cons

    Long hours of standing on your feet, moderate to heavy lifting, must have strength to work set up. Compensation is low, but benefits are okay overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more staff needed for busy weekend hours
