    Surprisingly, a wonderful place to work!

    Cashier Promoted to Overnight Team Lead (Current Employee) Joplin, MO (US)

    ProsLeadership is at the highest quality, ability to promote within; quickly, works with school schedules. Management is quick to acknowledge hard and good work. Overall an excellent place to work.

    ConsThe fact that salaries are non-negotiable is horrible. Middle management has very low wages (less than 25,000).

    What more would you expect?

    Bakery (Current Employee) Grand Prairie, TX (US)

    ProsThe fellow co workers were very friendly and their was an overall positive work environment. A lot of training and movement opportunities.

    ConsThe pay isn't all that great for the amount of work that you will do. Be prepared to work hard and possibly be taken advantage of by the management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management at sam's club should learn to lead by example. It's simply good PR to help out the associates and find themselves in their department with their employees more often. Management isn't only about the store and the procedures and policies it is also about the people you are managing.

    Good Company to move up in. As with most retail, poor work life balance.

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsAbility to get promoted. Fast paced, if you can handle the job here, you can handle it anywhere. Many completely different jobs at the same company.

    ConsNo set schedules. As assistant manager can be assigned to any department at whim of store manager. No ability to negotiate salaries. Budgets get very little input from store level, making achieving bonuses harder.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
