The club manager is an amazing man to work for, he makes sure to know all who works for him. Love working for people who are so nice and being able to intact with people. The hardest part of my job is seeing a member walk out of the store disappointed. The management at Sam's Club is amazing they work with you so well.

A great environment and good place to start
Membership Service Associate (Current Employee), Wichita Falls, TexasAugust 20, 2014
Pros: free membership, great environment to work in
Cons: lack of full time positions
A typical day at work includes taking care of our members. This task is not always easy, it takes a certain type of person. This person must have patients and passion to make a member completely satisfied. On a typical day I am responsible for selling and creating memberships, taking credit card payments, checking members out, running reports, keeping – more... a clean and organized work environment, and correcting membership issues. I have learned how to satisfy an unhappy member. The hardest part of my job is when I can't meet a members satisfaction due to policy guidelines. I have great co-worker and make friends easily. I have a great manager and have created a special bond with her. – less

Each Club has a Different atmosphere...
Manager (Current Employee), CTAugust 20, 2014
Pros: usualy promote from the inside
Cons: heathcare sucks! family life sucks! but it is retail
It all starts from the top down. Sam's Club was built on respect for the individual and in parts of the country its followed. I had a great experience working for Sam's Club on the west coast. The GM and managers took me under their wing and trained me or what they call it "coached me" to be a leader in each of my departments so I can get promoted. – more... I had to move to the east coast, the company allowed me to transfer. It was not an easy task, I had to call the local clubs daily to see if they would have anything available for me. After 2 months I had my GM call the club and speak to the GM on the east coast and that how my transfer happened or I would of been out of a job.
East Coast Clubs- Very different. All starts with the GM. He or she makes the environment in the club. Less of a leader and promoter with in and more of a army general. Is it a good company to work for?? If you're a hard worker and you're willing to devote your time to Sam's Club you'll move up in the hourly world. Salary might take you a few years depending on what part of the country you're in. – less

Can occasionally be a fast pace environment, works with your availabilty to give you the hours you need.
Tire Center Member Service Cashier (Former Employee), Cedar Rapids, IAAugust 20, 2014
Working there for years you will get to know a lot of people and local business owners. I have learned quite a bit working at Sam's Club, especially working in the tire center. You will learn things fast and they will teach you the things you need. The hardest part of working there is keeping up on the consistency of up-selling of memberships.

Tire Technician (Former Employee), Maplewood, MOAugust 20, 2014
If youve been in a walmart or Sams Club you understand how busy and over crowded they can be. Working in the tire department is not as stressfull as being a cashier, but frequently we would the spillage of impatient customers.

Great coworkers horrible management
Cake decorator (Former Employee), Raymore, MOAugust 19, 2014
Pros: great dental and vision insurance if you are able to get it
Cons: bad hours, bad pay, rude managers, rude customers
Sam's club is infamous for understaffing, under paying, and over working. Unless you are a full-time employee, which is so rare that almost no one is, you are not guaranteed that many hours or stable hours. one week you may have 30 then next 12. The associates that work there are friendly and a joy to work with, some new management have been invoked – more... that have brought moral down within the "club." it use to be fun working there until new managers were brought in, the old managers made the associates feel appreciated and were talked to with respect, the new managers occasionally yell at associates in front of other associates and even shoppers. they don't really make them feel appreciated. – less

Not worth it
Cashier (Former Employee), Shenandoah, TXAugust 15, 2014
Sam's Club never had enough coverage for the store unless it was after hours. During the day, if you need a manager's help, they are never available; if you need a break, there was never enough coverage; they always tried to have you hurry back on the floor especially while on lunch.
