Topics regarding layoffs at Sam's Club
How is everyone liking the changes coming to member service area?? Desk is going cashless.
How long after getting laid off and cashing in my 401 can I get rehired. Thanks in advance.
I am a 17 yr GM and since all these change overs. My wife and I always fight, we have 3 children and have a beautiful home. Something I never had since I grew up in Harlem. I just wanted the kids to have it better then me, well, I moved into a small... — read more
Are they working on a raise for everyone else?
This system of scheduling is a trend in the business rather than a specific thing that was done only at Sam’s. It doesn’t excuse the company for making such an id–tic move, but a frend of mine, who left the company because he couldn’t spend time... — read more
Since the backroom is on the same level as a team lead ..will our pay go up to at least 18.00 too?
Thumbs up or thumbs down?
Those that were the accounting associates before the block and change, how many of you are still doing the job that someone else is getting paid to do? Did you tell them that you weren't going to do it after you were let go from that position? I'm... — read more
What are the responsibilities for the front end leads?? With them making $18 an hour I hope it’s not just being cashiers, dictators or directing members to the available registers open. 🤔
My club has been undergoing a big reduction of the backroom associates. That segment has been cut to the bone, and to tell you the truth, I really don’t know how they're handling all of the work. Has something similar happened at any other clubs?
I WAS a manager (last day yesterday) and things are NOT going to get better. See the light at the end of the tunnel and stop holding on things ARE not going to change for the better. Believe me when I say there is MUCH better out there
Anyone else having trouble getting vacation approved. Over a month and it just sat there till the week requested and its still pending.
Anyone else having a meeting with the backroom?? Details please.
Does anybody REALLY think it’s a problem with Workday? It’s probably HO’s attempt to get more people to quit. Work them so short handed so they’ll quit. I don’t trust anything they say or do. Doesn’t make any sense. Its been going on for well over... — read more
Do not spend your money here. There are plenty of other choices. Costco, Target, Amazon, Aldi, Trader Joe's, Dollar General. They sold you out. I don't care if they were so "gracious" as to give you a lifetime membership for your countless year... — read more
No one wants to share what the new marketing salaried position is and it's details? I know this has started already in 2 or 3 clubs in every market. What's your base salary? How much incentive above goal are you paid ? And what happened to your... — read more
Manager came in Monday turned in 2 week notice after their vacation.
Drones will soon be in clubs. They scan merch and add items to the drop list automatically.
Kudos for taking a stance ! - https://kfgo.com/news/articles/2019/jul/16/walmart-chile-reaches-agreement-with-union-workers-to-end-six-day-strike/918421/
Is it actually true that managers and supervisors can't date people beneath them or is it just generally looked down on? Looking for an actually policy, I don't see it at all
Just wondering how many Marketing Team Leads have been encouraged to take the assessment and apply for a COS position?
Just wondering if any clubs are doing well with block scheduling.Do any clubs have enough associates??
How is it going for the Backroom since the switch. In our club, it is just two FT, one is Sat, off Sun-Mon, Tues-Fri. The other FT is alone in back on Monday and works Mon-Fri Both work 4am-12 noon. The craziness is off the charts. We are so busy... — read more
The PRO Act Bill would provide long overdue strengthened protections for people organizing to form a union and for people who are already members of a union. Increasing unionization rates would build bargaining power for workers, allowing more... — read more
Does anyone know if they have raised the pay grade max for level A and B.? I heard level C max was raised over 28.00 when all the leads wages got a bump.
One fresh one manager from each market picked to go to Arkansas...hmmmmm
At least this is the case at my club, and I’ve been there for 10- years. There were some hard times, but never have I seen associates turning on each other in the way they do now. Is it the same mess at other locations ,as well?
cue excuses and non-answers about how being a fresh lead isn't worth the headache or how you were constantly looked over for a promotion... meanwhile all you can do is obsess over how much fresh leads get paid
Amazingly accurate. 10 out of 10! https://www.forbes.com/sites/lizryan/2018/03/28/ten-signs-your-workplace-is-toxic-whether-you-know-it-or-not/#2df06fa73c6b
I think that anyone who still believes that the leaders think that any of the schedule changes will contribute in any way to the company being more efficient is quite naive. The goal is nothing more than to drive the long-time employees out and then... — read more
We know you don't like the changes. None of us really do. So out of spite, you call off excessively to send some type of message. So the people who were in the trenches with you suffer and the company only loses a couple thousand bucks a day in... — read more
