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

Pros

Pay is better than minimum wage and one doesn't have to "flip burgers." Due to store hours, an employee gets to go home at a reasonable hour to then do homework. Plus there are a decent amount of choices for positions in an average club.

Cons

Sometimes your voice doesn't seem to be heard, or if you know it is, not much is done about it. Certain company policies like the Open Door (free and able to talk to any member of management or higher about anything) and the Sundown Rule (always try to answer/resolve and questions before the end of the day) don't work as they are supposed to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand how your employees work best instead of always blindly pushing company policy and guidelines. We work hard to provide for the member. Often, when we are busy and short-staffed, some guidelines get bent so as to provide for the volume of people in the store. This is when we are working our hardest and following the company's guidelines to the letter often would mean a lapse in service for every member.

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

    Pros

    They offer good benefits and are very stable in an unstable economy. Perfect place to work if you do not rely on it as your main income.

    Cons

    Electronic scheduling has the facilities poorly staffed and does not allow flexibility for employes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Electronic scheduling is all well and good as a starting point - but give each facility the ability to schedule manually. If someone has a wedding, it will not hurt anything to let them start an extra hour early and leave an hour before the pre-programmed uneditable shifts are over.

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, good pay, moving "up the ladder" is relatively easy; also, the team at the Fairbanks store (by-and-lagre) are good, friendly, motivated people.

    Cons

    concrete floors, florescent lights (migraine-starters for those who have them), store cheers at weekly meetings (not a real off-putter, just annoyingly juvenile), and not a lot of healthy options for lunch-break dining if you forgot your meal at home.
