    Former Employee - Marketing Associate in Friendswood, TX

    I worked at Sam's Club full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I liked that the position allowed for independent working. I enjoyed being able to mix up whether doing inside marketing or outside cold calling. The special community events that were rewarding.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of management support or direction given. The Clubs are so understaffed that they often pull the marketing team from their tasks to run registers or the membership desk which makes it impossible to meet your goals and quotas. The company boast of lead support but the computer generated lead systems are so antiquated that no one knew how to use them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer employee discounts.

    I worked at Sam's Club full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    To learn Sam Walton's principles of management. Learned many business tactics that helped with the success of my career. Rewarding!

    Cons

    The challenges: getting all tasks completed with a tight staff. Good structure but need to have the players in place to realistic accomplish them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay close to what the clubs need so they can over achieve. Change is always good, look closer at what the key needs are for the stores to be able to accomplish.

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

    Pros

    Nice people to work with on the associate level. Free Sam's Club Card Get Your Shopping Done with when leaving.
    Great place to work if you are young and nothing to take off. Associates will give information freely about how things are done and what watch for.

    Cons

    Pay cap is $17.80 and that's 15 years on the job at the associate level. To cheep to buy fix or replace with new equipment, always working with bare minimum that includes people and equipment. Oh and you have to struggle to get full time at least at my location. Only way to get that 60 cent raise is to basically do the supervisors/ night manager's for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the workers!
