No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

-OK starting pay
-Relatively easy to transfer departments
-Casual corporate attitude (Example: everyone all the way up to the CEO is addressed by their first name)
-If it's the career you wish to pursue, there is always room to move up the ladder, either in the clubs or on the organizational/corporate level
-If you just need a college job (like me), many part-time positions are flexible with availability

Cons

-Like many large corporations, the company is slow to react to situations

Advice to Management

I feel like there isn't enough vertical communication from the ground level up to the strategic level. I can't tell you how many times I receive a plan from Home Office and immediately knew that there were going to be problems with this plan.

PS: Holiday electronics tables are a waste of time/wages.
