I worked at Sam's Club part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Entry level compensation is better than most of its competitors. There are various departments to learn and work. Supervisors somewhat flexible with part time employees who are college students.

Cons

After the holiday season, some part time employees are subject to being laid off to make up for slower start of the year. Not much for career advancement unless a manager.

    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time

    Pros

    always looking for new blood, a good job to spring board from to get retail management expierence great for single people

    Cons

    50 -60 hours a week a must, pay raises are a joke, long term associates are not appreciated nor looked out for. Not good for any one who wants to spend time with family

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career Opportunites are ok because they fire management so fast it will make your head spin. Coming up from an hourly position I've seen a lot of good people abused and miss out on family opportunites

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Can make some good friendship...all clubs seem to have a great deal of favoritism when it comes to promotions!

    Pros

    Benefits, job security, pretty much guaranteed a raise every year of at least .40, and normally great bonus yearly...can always transfer your job after 6 months if you decide to relocate.

    Cons

    Wayyyyyyyyyyyy too much favoritism from store to store...even after obtaining a college degree and showing that you have what it takes to be a great leader a member of their "clique" may get promoted over you. Store manager can stop you from getting management when in many cases you would have really been the chosen one...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair to all associates, give credit where credit is due, FOLLOW POLICIES...promote growth!
