Pros

Good pay for the job. They actually pay more than any other retail position I was offered, and the job was great. I never had any issues with anybody because i did my job. Like anywhere else, if you don't do your job, you most likely will not have a good work experience

Cons

The upper management does not have good people skills and does not know how to build the moral in his store. It's sad. So, so many good employees that have worked for Sam's from 4 to 20 years, resigned because of him. It's terrible and I can't believe nobody from corporate is doing anything about it.

    Pros

    Large, stable company who does their homework and knows their customer.

    Cons

    Management takes the approach of "The beatings will continue until morale improves". It's not without it's challenges, but the pressure is immense. There is massive turnover, but if you are competent and can handle the pressure the potential to rise is great. Formal education is not necessary if you prove yourself within the company.

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people who work for the organization and as a manager you have the opportunity to positively impact peoples lives.

    Cons

    The internet is filled with negative things to say about Wal-Mart / Sam's Club, unfortunately too many of them are true. The organization has lost it's way and the principles upon which Sam Walton founded the company. They still exist in slogans, banners and corporate rhetoric but not in practice. The organization is run by the lawyers trying to protect it and not leaders interested in taking care of their people. Sam Walton was a remarkable leader and visionary, unfortunately the company now lacks both.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually take care of your people as if they matter to the business. The rhetoric is transparent and discontent continues to build within your organization.
