    Pros

    It is a great company to work for as long as you are a collage astudent, will work with you on hours as long as you stay part-time. Full-time has to be flexable with hours.

    The work hours as a full-time employee can very from 4am to 11:30pm depending on the time of year and also the condition of the club around a holiday, or when upper management visit the Club

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

    Pros

    Great company and atmosphere
    401k and stock
    Decent wages
    A place you can move up in fast if you are dedicated

    Cons

    Not enough hours but short on staff
    Membership desk gets a million phone calls and when you are the only one on the desk (and even with 2 people) it gets frustrating to get the line down and handle cash while being on the phone. COS is always ringing when you need a key turn and it takes forever..while the member waits they get angry.

    Advice to Management

    Get phone system that automatically transfers calls to the right department- it will speed up membership service and that helps lines!
    COS should not be ringing- give the store more hours to hire cashiers!
