    Pros

    Super fun learning a skill as useful as cutting up meat. It was decent pay and you are pretty much on your own with minimal managment. Talking to customers who think your a baker was also fun.

    Cons

    Managment has no real idea about what your doing as far as it takes skill to cut meat and make it look good.

    Advice to Management

    At least understand it takes time to cut meat and make it look presentable. And having an incompetent team lead while not listening to the other employees is also a pain.

    I worked at Sam's Club part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working there. We were all like a big family

    Cons

    Even though I worked in the pharmacy we still had to stock merchandise in the isle and most of the times they were really heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Only girls worked there so they shouldn’t be stocking heavy merchandise
