    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonably fair. Get along with most people. Like the title says, I've had worse jobs.

    Cons

    The constant understaffing, especially in light of annual events in town that should not be taking anyone by surprise. Always big sales days, always poorly planned for. And the communication... nonexistent. I know my job, but if there's something that specifically needs to be done, COMMUNICATE THAT! I'm damn good, but I'm not a mind-reader.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get us some damn help! Cross-coded in three departments, and help REGULARLY in four others besides my primary. I don't mind helping out, but when I'm the only one covering three departments, TWO of which are supposed to be staffed at all times, we're going to run into problems.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to move throughout the company, people are hard workers and have to be.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance as the system is designed to root out potential liabilities from advancing. Depending on the Club, it may require who you know vs. what you know and accomplished. Many people give up because they get passed up by social promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move General Managers Around to different clubs within the Market. That way you can see what Manages are true Manager and who are riding in the fame that subordinates produce. A strong Manager will walk n to a Club and add value and improvement to a Club.

    Have more opportunities for Team Leaders to have MIT training.

    Pros

    Great management, easy going, laid back work environment, everyone treats you like you are part of a big family

    Cons

    You definitely don't get paid what your worth and a full time position is very hard to get. You are lucky if you even get 20 hours a week. You have to work there a year part time for benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to get your employees more hours even if it's cross training in another department. Employees simply can't make a living with that kind of paycheck.

    I worked at Sam's Club

    Pros

    Working conditions were nice. The job was easy. People were friendly.

    Cons

    There were no set standards on things. For example when closing, one night things were ok one way and then another night, it had to be done a totally different way.
