Good school and work job
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Pueblo, COSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: short breaks, benefits, lack of advancement
Typical day duties include zoning and stocking the store and helping members as needed. I've learned that it's a good job to have during college but little opportunity for advancement after that. Management is not on the same page all the time and you always get conflicting orders to follow and always have to change projects multiple times. Co-workers – more... are great and everyone gets along there and everyone is easy to talk to. Hardest part of my job is picking up slack from others who can't complete their own work on time. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with. – less

Event Specialist (Current Employee), Butler, PASeptember 1, 2014
Pros: this was a job that worked around my school schedule.
Cons: this was a job not related to my field of study.
A typical day at work was to provide quality samples to Member's of Sam's Club. I have learned the importance of following directions and following the requirements for Food Safety. I have worked with many individuals throughout the years, from every walk of life. There really is not a hard part of this job, as long as an employee follows the rules. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing those little smiles from children, when their parents are present, of course, and they are handed a sample. – less

Warehouse hospitality
Floor Partner (Former Employee), Dover, DeSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: advancement within the company
Cons: distribution of hours
I was a floor partner/ floater/ sales person. I wore many hats. Sams club is a wholesale distributor to those who pay a annual membership fee. I liked working there a lot. I liked my coworkers. The work wasn't easy, sometimes it would be a little extraneous. There was always work to do. Standing for over 10 hours sometimes was hard but it was standard – more... for the position. I had really great managers and everyone put forth a collective effort to ensure excellent customer service. – less

Open for opportunity but you have to act fast
Cafe Associate (Former Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 31, 2014
Pros: transfer to different departments when openings are available
Cons: unset work schedule; long time before pay raise is available
The only qualm I had about this particular job was that you did not have a set schedule. When I started off as a cashier, I felt as if I were being forced to upsell the memberships and credit cards. They would show you your sales productivity [or lack there of] every time you began a shift and it would really hurt your pride, even though you knew you – more... tried. I hi-tailed it over to the cafe and can say that I really enjoyed my experience. I came in early or sometimes in the evening and I was ready to clean, prepare, and cook. I did not mind the housekeeping because someone had to take control of it or you would stay in the "red". I could remember scrubbing a floor and various other things to make sure that I would keep my job, and I did. I think that that one action, besides my work ethic, helped me to remain a candidate for rehire. – less

Pros: good work environment, great team support from supervisors and managers
Cons: dealing with the many different attitutes and various situations that are given to you on random
A typical day at this job would include myself working a register with daily interactions with members. The hardest part of this job is the selling aspect of this job where the cashiers are required to attempt to reach a daily quota on credits and plus memberships sold.
