    Pros

    Management really treats you with respect and it is not above them to help members and employees when needed. Everyone works as a team. It is a great place to work! The club is really fair about needing time off for appointments. The best part is I attend school full time and they are willing to work around my school schedule as needed. Management is always there to help whether it be putting out stock, or working the front end with cashier's. At the end of the night management will even thank you for your hard work. They let you know how much they appreciate your efforts.

    Cons

    It is hard to get full time employment.

    Advice to Management

    Management really does a great job. It makes coming to work not so bad.

    Pros

    Sam Club is a great place to work at because it give you an opportunity to start at an entry level position and work you way up to management. A lot of managers were associates because they became managers. They will work with your schedule and show you step by step how to learn and applied what you have learned. I think young, old , or need a second job I would defiantly apply to Sam Club online. I my self just recently relocated and I think Sams Club has given me the opportunity to meet new people and work to pay some of my bills

    Cons

    Some people may be negative and like to not take there job serious but you will have that every where you work

    Advice to Management

    Nothing ... He is great

    Pros

    fun place to work, they will work with you, great room for advancement and starting pay was $10 an hr for cashiering but i had experience.

    Cons

    some people dont have a consistant schedule and it can be a hassle to have to look at the schedule every week to see what you work the next week.

    Advice to Management

    have the managers of the cashiers get some better communication skills.... they just need to learn how to effectively talk to people.


  6. I have many jobs in the last six years, this is the best one out of all of them.

    Pros

    The supervisors praise you. You don't have to be there to early nor leave to late ever. The pay is alot better then at a supermarket. You have alot of freedom.

    Cons

    Not enough cashiers since the people who shop there usually buy lots of items since it's wholesale so you may have very long lines especially if there isn't anyone to PDA items. Not enough COS's if you need an override it will be a minimum of 3 minutes. You have to be real careful of the many ways you can get a pickslip because if you get one you can't transfer stores nor move departments for a year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the cashiers informed of new promotions as these are good for selling plus's and only the cashiers who are friendly with the supervisors know about them.

    Pros

    Managers actually listened to my suggestions and used some of them. I was given the freedom to express my creativity as long as I was generating sales.

    Cons

    You're working for the walmart corporation - I'm a fan of small business.

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment with mutual respect between the managers and the workers. Best paying job I have ever had, haven't had many though.

    Cons

    A lot of the other workers were just working to get done, not necessarily to do a good job. Dealing with customers gets frustrating sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Good job keeping the environment upbeat for the most part. Very personal with the workers and it makes you feel good being talked to like a friend by the club manager.
