    I worked at Sam's Club full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and hard working assoc. Benefits were good, able to be a manager without college degree if you work hard and are self driven.

    Cons

    Low pay and rate of raises. No consistency in training, you are either going to sink or swim on your own. Always restructuring positions and adding more work to remaining associates yet no pay increase or mores hours to get extra work done. They do not adhere to their core values and there is no reward for hard work and loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Training plans that actually are used with consistency. Management needs realistic expectations of what can be accomplished in 8hrs. Hiring or pay raises need more flexibility at club level. Upper management needs to appreciate hard working associates.

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

    Pros

    It’s fun to work with the people there very friendly, managers are easy to talk to, you constantly improve your job and move up, flexible timing

    Cons

    Not much really just at times it’s a bit stressful to get things done by a certain time

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if more could be said like if we were told we were appreciated and did a good job. It has been said before but sometimes it gives a little more motivation to hear that us entry level associates are thought of more.
