I have been working at Sam's Club part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-OK starting pay
-Relatively easy to transfer departments
-Casual corporate attitude (Example: everyone all the way up to the CEO is addressed by their first name)
-If it's the career you wish to pursue, there is always room to move up the ladder, either in the clubs or on the organizational/corporate level
-If you just need a college job (like me), many part-time positions are flexible with availability

Cons

-Like many large corporations, the company is slow to react to situations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I feel like there isn't enough vertical communication from the ground level up to the strategic level. I can't tell you how many times I receive a plan from Home Office and immediately knew that there were going to be problems with this plan.

PS: Holiday electronics tables are a waste of time/wages.

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

    Pros

    My son was able to recieve a 13,000 scholarship for college because I work for Sam's Club. There are many benefits with working at Sam's Club. Plus it is a company that will allow you to grow as far as you want. Also it can be a place for long-term employment. I have been with this company now for 18 wonderful years. No regrets. :)

    Cons

    Not being able to have a set schedule, but that's okay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always cherish those you have working with you, always be fair, and listen to what they have to say. Don't be afraid to admitt when you make a mistake. Always show the most respect for each indiviual. Communicate with everyone that is around you. And remember the 10- foot rule. These are the basic.:)
