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

Pros

Pay is better than minimum wage and one doesn't have to "flip burgers." Due to store hours, an employee gets to go home at a reasonable hour to then do homework. Plus there are a decent amount of choices for positions in an average club.

Cons

Sometimes your voice doesn't seem to be heard, or if you know it is, not much is done about it. Certain company policies like the Open Door (free and able to talk to any member of management or higher about anything) and the Sundown Rule (always try to answer/resolve and questions before the end of the day) don't work as they are supposed to.

Advice to Management

Understand how your employees work best instead of always blindly pushing company policy and guidelines. We work hard to provide for the member. Often, when we are busy and short-staffed, some guidelines get bent so as to provide for the volume of people in the store. This is when we are working our hardest and following the company's guidelines to the letter often would mean a lapse in service for every member.

    I have been working at Sam's Club part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    nice co-workers.
    easy job, nothing complicated.

    Cons

    underpaid, understaffed, overworked.

    they have more people handing out food sample than grocery associates restocking more than 1/3 of the whole shop. little over 8 $ per hour is NOT enough money.

    Advice to Management

    hire more people. having one person to work in entire non-freezer section of the groceries while spotting for other co-workers, helping out members, emptying the bale, helping out on carts & carry out..is kinda insane and physically impossible to get the job done at the level of your expectation..

    Pros

    Very open to employee comments and complaints. Great opportunity to move around the store working in different departments. Alright pay for undergraduates just looking for part time work that could lead to much more.

    Cons

    Not many downsides, I really didnt have any complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the line workers, they see everything first hand and can always give advice on possible improvements.
