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

    Pros

    Usually good work-life balance, decent pay

    Cons

    Internal promotions are the max of 10% or the bottom of the pay band you're promoted to, but if you come in as an external hire you'll get the middle of the pay band. This is a large difference in pay that devalues internal employees' experience

    Pros

    401K and paid time off, unpaid vacation time, sick days, LOA.

    Cons

    Club is always understaffed.Some manager's prefer to sit in the office instead of being on the sales floor engaging members and building a servant leadership relationship with associates.

    Advice to Management

    Hire AP personnel to walk and regulate the sales floor to reduce shrink. Learn to lead and not just manage.
