Don't wait around for severance

The flawed practices in dealing with employees

People make the mistake of believing they as an individual are important to Sam's. The management is trained to steer you toward believing in Sam's as if it were a worthy cause like saving whales. When a person wakes up , like Neo Waking up in his... read more


Is anyone else feeling shunned because youre not wanting another position in the club. My managers dont speak to me they talk over me instead of to me. December 7 will be a great day. I wish them good luck.

Club Hours Changing

I keep hearing club hours will be changing after the holidays. Clubs will start opening at 10 like we use to. Any truth to this ?

Cross training

Sam's Club received direction from HO to cross train associates in different areas. This leads me to believe there are big changes on the horizon. They are up to something

Membership Cards

I still cant figure out why we are handing out membership cards with no name and no pictures on them. We take their pic but once you scan their card at the register it does not show who they are. What is this all about any ideas?

Not sure if that is good or bad. I am personnel thought I was goner Monday

Any Clubs with no night crew

Are there any associates on here who's club does not have a night crew and if so how in the world do they even get close to meeting company standards.

No one is safe

I have been with Sam’s for 34 years, they never promised us forever. With that being said, I really thought if you worked hard and did not call in you would be safe. NO ONE is safe, they will always be looking to cut back. As much as I think I’m... read more

Club Manager Schedule

Club managers used to be required to close 1or 2 nights a week. Normally worked 7-5. Mine NEVER closes and comes in at 6. Is this new? Or does my Club Manager think he is better then everyone else and follows his own rules and makes his own schedule?... read more

Byod for hourly.

Even if they pay for my plan I will not use it. Will they replace if dropped and it breaks while doing my job? It is a big way to save them money. If people use there phones Sam's doesn't need to buy as many Tc70's.

Where are they?

Does anyone know what happened to the PTCs in test markets where they eliminated their positions?

Any word on the remaining cash office associates? The WalMart side completely eliminated cash office associates and now managers/CSM do it.


Any information concerning In Field marketing associates? Last year was thought to be the last year for these associates but it never happened. No new equipment has been seen as promised either. We all know these positions are on the chopping block... read more

Maybe it’s time to start the job hunt now

Don't say there are no job opportunities. If you have a Sam's nearby then your area is big enough and has other places to work. You are making up excuses. So you would rather have to job hunt once your store closes, and all you other associates are... read more
