    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pays well, good opportunity to move up, flexible hours, use for multiple skill-sets

    Cons

    Disconnect between upper management and clubs, lack of engagement between management and associates, high expectations with less resources

    Advice to Management

    Go back to basics. Spend quality times in the clubs and really listen to the concerns of your associates. Most like the company but do not like the direction it is heading. Really question if this is the kind of company Sam Walton would have wanted.

    I worked at Sam's Club full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, great associates, decent pay for the work being done, free membership, work around schedule, profit sharing, employee stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    Profit sharing tends to be rare, management struggles due to the fact that they do not get support from the district/regional team, which tends to be passed down to the associates, "skeleton crews" is an often heard comment. Some of the upper management do not understand payroll, which can lead to low employee engagement. Tons of merchandising required, which is fine, but often becomes pointless as it moves the next day. Store technology is a huge opportunity... If this were any other company (Not a walmart corp) they would be following circuit city, radio shack, and best buy. Customer service is not a priority, which didnt bug me until I worked for another company and saw the difference.

    Advice to Management

    We know it is a tough position at times and that you do not get much support from your district staff, but remember not to take frustrations out on employees. A main goal should be employee development.
