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

Pros

Friendly environment, members are *generally* better than customers in most retail chains, benefits (insurance, stocks, etc) are much better than average with very low premiums, again, compared to other retailers, and with flexible hours it's a great place for a second income.

Cons

It's retail, so it'll be low wage unless you make salaried management; hourly management is a great jumping stone if you prove your worth; you will have to work weekends if you seek to move up; the company is downsizing because of poor decisions at Home Office and losing ground to Costco. Idiot Buyers make poor decisions - candy canes, anyone?

    I worked at Sam's Club full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    work satisfaction is a day to day endeavor, but it is there. if you are willing to work and earn your keep.

    Cons

    some times the dead weight gets away with minimal output. some members get away with taking from the store because they know that if they yell loud enough they will get what they want even if its not right.


  2. "I have worked with great co-workers, but this company has no vision and can't seem to get to the next level"

    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent and better than Wal-Mart. Fellow associates are great to work with, down to earth.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Accountability starts with the associates and then with management the majority of the times. High turn over rates with newer associates.

    Advice to Management

    Be more engaged with your associates and work along side them if you want them to work for you.
