    I have been working at Sam's Club full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work, warehouse business segment of parent company Walmart.
    Big box retailer in which you can learn how the business works.

    Cons

    Hard to find their own identity since they are always chasing Costco. As a result, the home office management is constantly changing instead of focusing on their own strengths.

    Advice to Management

    Stop following and focus on what bought you to the dance.

    Pros

    Cons

    Not very many Full-time opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The way you support your employees is amazing.

    Noone likes to have a boss that you only see when you HAVE to, with the management style here that is not the case at all, if you have questions they'll answer them. They actually take the time to talk to their employees, I've worked for Walmart before for 5 years and have never had close to the experience that I have had here.
