    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good starting pay, opportunities to advance, college tuition aid, strong team based environment

    Cons

    Overtime rarely permitted, necessary to work 12+ hour days and cut hours to avoid overtime, schedule can be all over the place, high stress, under staffed, yearly raises for hourly associates are terrible (25 cents per year or often less)

    Advice to Management

    Hire larger teams. Often, corporate management would demand more than the team could reasonably accomplish. Hiring people costs money,, but ultimately makes more money as we will have more product available, presentation will remain impeccable, and members will return more often to higher level of service.

    Pros

    The clubs I worked at have been reasonably accommodating of shifting schedules. Mgmt is happy to help good associates advance their careers.

    Cons

    It's retail. Membership based but still retail with all the associated unpleasantness that is included in this shifting segment of the economy..

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your associates. Take ownership of your areas and schedule for your club regardless of what the scheduler throws, You will not be disciplined for it,
