Sales associate/cashier (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – September 11, 2017
Its a cashier job but, they also want you to sell memberships and credit cards. No you dont get any incentive for doing so, its part of your job description. Also be ready to deal with heavy merchandise. They do sell in bulk after all. You are alone on your register, no 'bagers'
Its not a bad job. If i had to, i wouldnt mind working there again
I usually came in, punched myself in followed my schedule, had lunch punched out and went home when it was time to go home
Janitor (Former Employee) – Tinley Park, IL – September 11, 2017
I, had always checked with my supervisor before and after punching in, before starting to work, to make sure that it was done right, and before taking my lunch break and before when it was time to go home, and I would always ask if I had questions with something.
If I saw something like free food, or something I would ask another employee was that for us or not.
I would take short bathroom breaks, always come back from cigarette or lunch breaks early.
The sams i worked at had bad manager 2 faced and didn't delegate properly

Demonstrator (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – September 11, 2017
It was a different place to work at. I wasn't sure if it was for me cause I don't do well pushing items on people. I did demo the items so the customers were able to decide if they like the item or not. A lot of it was food items.
Cake Decorator (Current Employee) – Edmond, OK – September 11, 2017
There are days that are busy and some not so busy, learning as you go about what is expected in the bakery on what no to do. Management is easy to talk to when there is an issue or personal situation occurs. The hardest part of the job is the floors; they are hard on the body for people with health issues. In addition to not being capable to help out a member for something that is a small adjustment to a design. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is making sure that the member is happy with the experience that they had at Sam's Club.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – September 10, 2017
The department I'm in isn't a terribly hard one and I love dealing with the members that come in everyday. However it is really hard to move up in this company. They are also very strict on attendance and do not accept doctor's excuses, which can make maintaining good attendance difficult. On the positive side you do get a few benefits for working here, the free Sam's card is nice, and every now and then they will provide food for the whole team.
Auditor (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – September 10, 2017
Everyday in this job their always was something to do, you always had to be fast paced and you would learn something new about the store, their was always opportunities out in the different fields at the store.
Membership and Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – September 9, 2017
Sam's has falllen into the increasing profit at the cost of the people working there type of businesses. Over the 12 years I've worked there, 7 in management I've seen the company continually cut costs by eliminating higher paid positions and continually increasing productivity requirements on the remaining people. The management level and higher is very cutthroat and stressful. There is no respect for work-life balance. And once you make it into management it is very difficult to get raises consistently.
Many locations to work
Terrible stress and productivity standards. No balance to home life.
Cashier/ Customer Service (Former Employee) – Evanston, IL – September 9, 2017
i was pregnant while working at sam's club ad i was being picked on by the Loss prevention officer because i wouldn't lift certain items and i would be the only one that would get talked to about it even tho no one else picked up or moved items in the guest cart also the HR is horrible she would steal time by not punching out while heating up her food and watch tv for 30 mins and then punch out for 30 min lunch and just talk to people she didn't help me at all when i went on leave she was really bad .
I had to catch the bus, so i would have to leave at 8:45PM to catch the last bus...I was not liked because I would to leave early. They prefer people who can stay late to finish everything, despite what they said of "Oh yeah, we can make that work".
CUSTOMER SERVICE REP (Current Employee) – Pearland, TX – September 9, 2017
As a member service representative you preform several jobs without any appreciation or monetary compensation. You are expected to complete all your work and then you help whatever department needs it, but it doesn't work the other way around. The only departments that help cashiers at my store are tobacco and member services. We cashiers have helped soft lines, café, HBA, hard lines, cart attendants, door greeters and member services. The thing that irritates me the most is when we are extremely busy you look up and see so many people who work there from my department and other departments standing around chatting, eating, drinking and on their cell phones(which we are not allowed to do). We are treated like children, and I speak for myself only, I am not a child.
