Decent Pay, Poor Conditions

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Sam's Club

Pros

With minimum wage at 7.25, 9.00 an hour starting is not a bad start. And the benefits are also not bad if you're single.

Cons

When I was hired I was told that my job would include heavy lifting and cash handling. A week after I was put onto the floor I was told that if I didn't sell a certain number of upgraded memberships per week I would be punished with cut hours and even termination.

    Pros

    Good experience if you want to work in customer service. Most of the coworkers were nice, some general problems with customers but nothing major. Very competitive, if that is was some are looking for.

    Cons

    People are only appreciated if they make alot of sells, not if they are otherwise outstanding employees. The most important thing to them is not customer service, but making money, and selling memberships, even if you have to lie to do so. Almost like a used car lot.

    Advice to Management

    concentrate more on making ALL associates feel needed and useful, not just the ones who sell the plus. don't reward the associates who have to lie to sell, either.
