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

    Pros

    The interface of the register for the cashier does all the work for you.

    Cons

    Short staffed, often have to stand for hours at the door as a door greeter. Working past time stated on schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, stop putting all the cashiers as door greeter, or in cafe. That is not their job.

    Pros

    Willing to train in any position that is available. Sam's Club is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    If you have been with the company for more than 10 years and don't have a fulltime position they will definitely cut your hours to practically nothing to hold down expenses

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

    Pros

    Most people are ok to work with...

    Cons

    Management sucks, little pay. Managers are hands off so all they do is delegate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being bullies to your employees and actually start treating them like real people and not just another number. Maybe hire people who actually know what they're doing as well.

    Pros

    Great hours, we are open from 9-7 Mon.- Fri and 9-6 on Saturday. Not open on Sundays. Not too busy. Pretty good customers.

    Cons

    Management could use some work. A little difficult to work with but I've been doing it for so long he doesn't really bother me.

    Pros

    Quick interview, didn't ask to many questions.. jus told me about job.. Background. Drug Screen

    Cons

    So far so good, the managers think they run the world but I jus ignore it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving people power who's never had any type of social status.. These people get power and go crazy

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

    Pros

    Pay is good compared to other entry level positions
    I am a college student so I need time to study and when I had to close the latest we were there was around 10:00pm and that was on really hard days

    Cons

    Some unnecessary rules
    I was kept there after I was supposed to get off and there is no overtime pay.

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

    Pros

    Friendly environment, always busy so time flies, 30 minute lunch with 2 paid breaks (although you may have to argue for them)

    Cons

    Work holidays with no holiday pay or overtime (they pay you out of your own PTO), management undermines your every move, always takes the customer's side even if it means breaking company policies so customers purposely try to get free things and discounts, unreliable schedule, high turn over rate, not enough compensation, lack of communication throughout the entire club, favorites for people who have tenure, management treats everyone different, management will blame associates if it means they will not get in trouble, management tries to only give you one break.

    Advice to Management

    Needs communication, do not undermine associates when they are doing what they're told, treat everyone equally, do not coach a single associate in a department knowing all associates are not equally doing their job, listen to your associates they know everything on the floor.
