Reduction of backroom associates

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?

Workday problem.... NOT!!!!

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

What is the rule on employees dating?

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

The environment is as toxic as it gets

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?

Why aren't you a fresh team lead?

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

Schedule changes will continue until most of us quit

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

If they really want to know what clubs look like in reality they need to stop informing the managers when they are going to be visiting and touring clubs. They could also put cameras in the mgrs office and monitor them and see how ridiculous it is... —  read more

This place is a joke

When your store manager quits because this place has become such a sh– show shows you how bad of a company Sam's is becoming . Open your eyes we are busting our butts so we can eliminate our own jobs as they merge into Sam's club now store.
