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

    Pros

    Good pay starting out compared to other places

    Cons

    Stressful, unreasonable and unrealistic demands, management sucks they don’t care about employees, they over work you and deny you overtime, very unprofessional, extremely petty, don’t take vacations when you return they give you crappy hours, deny your vacations, will fire good employees for no good reason even when already understaff, don’t give proper raises... I could go on and. People end up hospitalized from working for this company, not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Step down and let someone who enjoys working with ppl do the job, someone who doesn’t take business personally

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

    Pros

    Cons

    Drama, no communication amongst management, favoritism, unfair pay scales

    Advice to Management

    Actually try listening to associates who are the ones on the front lines as Sam Walton used to say in similar words. We're the ones seeing and dealing with what's going on while you managers are all in an office with your plans and meetings and expectations that even you can't fulfill. Believe it or not we sometimes know what we are talking about and aren't wrong just because your fancy plans and emails say otherwise. It's like management can't think for themselves, they swear by the book so much.. Except the book is always changing and none of them actually know what it says anyways. Thus chaos ensues because nobody is EVER on the same page. Also, don't dole out raises then take them back and say to get over it when we are upset our hard work isn't being rewarded and new people with minimal experience are given $2 more. We aren't supposed to know other associate's pay rates but everyone still talks and management has the nerve to say to just deal with it, now go train this newbie getting more than you and we expect you to work just as hard as before if not harder! Management sees no issue talking to us like that. It's hurtful to someone who's been loyal so long but now I'm wondering why should I be anymore?

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

    Pros

    I am a cake decorator so it’s cool learning a new skill. The pay is good.

    Cons

    Pay isn’t worth it with how the management treats there employees. I’ve never cake decorated before and they treat me like crap because I’m “not good enough” even though I’ve only been there for 2 months. The worst job I’ve ever had. Also the management talks badly about the employees behind everyone’s back.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t treat your employees bad just because they don’t catch on right away. Also don’t say something nice to your employees and then talk badly about them.
