    Pros

    At Sam's Club, you see a lot of loyal members who you get to know. Being a 'people person,' I really enjoyed being a cashier at Sam's Club. The pay was better than your average grocery store pay, and they did drawings for bonus gift cards each time we went a month without any accidents.

    Cons

    Salesmanship is not my strong suit, and they want you to meet sales goals for upgrading memberships (no matter what job you have in the store). I did not enjoy it, but I did my best, and sold several.

    Advice to Management

    Keep helping your associates get better at what they do, rather than just telling them they "need to do better," and then just walking off.

    Pros

    Great employees, great customers, feel like at club level we are important, at corporate level we are ALL replaceable.

    Cons

    Higher ups could care less about you as a person, they only think we can work hard and faster.

    Advice to Management

    Walmart/Sam's could help their DM's and corporate big wigs to appreciate the hard work we do and realize that our families need us too.

    Pros

    All coworkers, bosses and COSs(front-line supervisors) are friendly
    higher pay than other stores

    Cons

    Most customers are rude, entitled, bratty and don't treat you like a person.
    You have to stand for your entire shift.
    You have to sell Plus memberships and credits, which you don't get compensated for separately. Someone who sells nothing and the best seller in the store get the same bonus, which is one time a year in March.
    Shifts generally run half an hour longer than they are scheduled.
    Schedules are posted as little as one day in advance. (good luck if you don't work on Friday)
    Not enough hours, most associates only get 13 hours a week, often people will be scheduled for 0 hours in a week.
    Casheirs also serve as cleaning crew, emergency cart associates, and all other positions

    I worked at Sam's Club full-time

    Pros

    When I first started the atmosphere was great, employees were mostly happy to be there. I really enjoyed working there and worked my way up to assistant manager

    Cons

    micro managing market managers
    when I first started it was about the associates and keeping moral up and providing good member service. Now they cut down the staff, shelves are not stocked, merchandise sits in the aisles. Sam Walton would not be proud. Its all about the money the upper management can put in their own pockets.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the way Sam Walton wanted his company ran.

    Pros

    Works with your schedule all the time. You could be going to school or have another job and they do a great job to help you get right shifts.

    Cons

    Everyone only thinks about themselves The store could grow more if only everyone worked as a team and not see it as all for one.

    Advice to Management

    Please and actually care about your area not only care when your in trouble by your regional managers come and says things are not looking so good.
