    I have been working at Sam's Club part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Medical benefits for part timers

    Cons

    While they are big on community support and feeding other countries they could care less that the employees are living in poverty. They bring you in with the promise of work, benefits and annual bonuses. What they really do is cut your hours so drastically that you don't work enough hours to keep your benefits or earn a decent share of the bonus or make enough to pay your bills. They do this so the management can get a bigger bonus. The biggest priority for the company is conning members into an upgrade. They staff bare minimum in the ancillary depts. Ie jewelry photo phones etc the managers are young and socialize with associates outside of work and unless you are part of the circle you will never see a promotion. They do the obligatory interviews a required by corporate but unless you are friends you don't have a chance. The front end supervisors are teens to twentys that do not have a clue as to how to supervise.. District and corporate aren't any better,i have called both using the open door policy and have never gotten a call back. You can't reach them in person only leave a message that goes unanswered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start thinking about your associates, your members and learn how to run a buddies. Your running it into the ground

    I worked at Sam's Club full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay for retail/food work.

    Cons

    Constantly changing leadership, constantly increasing bureaucracy and paperwork, and proportionately decreasing cafe functionality. Awkward, soulless corporate culture/team building. Unprofessional management. Weekly corporate intervention, resulting in completely changed and inconsistent policies week to week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't actively inhibit your employees from working efficiently.
