Overall good

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall a solid job, lots of growth opportunities. Decent schedule for retail. Holidays are crazy and sometimes it's overwhelming but in general it's manageable. You're definitely never bored.

Customer Centric

General Manager expressed Customer Service above all else. I learned a lot while working at the club. Dealing with the members and the public was very challenging and they helped me to become a better version of myself. The job was very demanding and fast-paced and you need to learn how to adjust daily. One of the hardest part was the diverse work place. So team work made the dream work. I loved my co-workers because we help each other out always. Management has gotten better overtime.

Pros

co-workers, healthcare

Cons

the customer is not always right

Horrible Management

Long story Short Cleaned the lot they Said I didn't, didn't check the Cameras at all So they " Let me go". on top of that they treated their Cashiers like trash and then wonder Why they have the high turn over rate.

Well it’s not that bad.

I’m grateful to have been able to work there, but within time it became stressful. We were very short handed and often times the job was too much to deal with. If planing to work there it best to let you know that you got to have a lot of patience. It not easy but those who work there will treat you like family.

Not that great

Coworkers are amazing, management not so much. They will work you to the bone and then get mad when you get sick and have to take time to heal. They don't care about you as an employee, all you are is 1s and 0s on their board.

Pros

Coworkers care and help each other out

Cons

Management expects you to live and breath Sam's club.

extremely stressful

Work was extremely overloaded. management do not want to bring people who are skilled for the job but only for the people who are favorite. The managers blames everything on their team and overload their team with work that are more than what is needed.

Decent Place to Work

Needing to check your schedule every day to see if there were any changes isn't great, but the work was honest and the pay was decent. People in each department are fairly friendly, and supervisors are easy to get along with. Management needs to be better at setting schedules and working with their employees, but it's not terrible.

Member Service

Fast paced, and highly stressful job that constantly changes. Both members and co-workers will pull you in all directions. With the right management team, it would be more pleasant to work here, but the turn over is very high.

A great place to learn about how to work with people of many cultures

Sam Club was an enjoyable place to work. However, not a place to make a career path. Hard to move up the path to management levels However, the environment was friendly and encouraged team players

Life at Sams

Working there I learned to make sure the patient came first, what made a good manager vs bad manager - Sam's Club culture was about making sure the member's came first. The hardest part of the job was working with managers who have great leadership skills or great work ethic. But you get free membership as an employee

Pros

Yearly raises and bonuses and fixed hours.

Cons

doesn't screen properly for quality optical managers, regional managers didn't really listen to the associates

Nothing to report

This is a very nice company to work for. They really care for their employee and will always work with you and your schedule. Pays well, hours always available and opportunity to grow.

Terrible

The management didn't seem to know how to the run the place. The Tire bay was terrible, multiple broken machines that never seemed to get fixed no matter how many times you told someone of management.

Pros

it was a fun work environment due to the employees

Cons

all those employees have since left
