Just a wild guess, but my take on the situation is that, after the shifts on the club management level and new scheduling system the next step will be eliminating a certain number of associates at certain clubs. How possible is that scenario? Seems... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Sam's Club
If a tier three club has seven managers and the O/N Mgr. works 2 to 12 or 11:30pm, it does not take a lot of calculation to figure that there is either going to be a lot of doubling up on managers in the building or another manager layoff. Especially... read more
Maybe my club is the only club this is happening in but I'm curious to see if anyone else feels this way. I know alot of postions were cut...but the shortage of staff here in my club is absolutely insane. Ive always been told members first, yet... read more
I’ve applied for one of the lower management positions at Sam’s Club. The job sounded good to me and I was satisfied with what was offered, but now that I see the posts on this board I see that people who work those positions speak with a strong... read more
Anyone already running with morning and evening stock... what kind of schedule is your previous overnight manager now working? The 4-2? What days?
All this speculation, I can't believe that there is no one out there that worked overnight and whose club has gone to days that can tell us if they received a severance package. ANYONE, facts please
Is severance being offered to those being effected by the 3rd shift elimination? The managers in our club have yet to really give us any information about the change. I have to work 3rd shift because of my home life and I have heard rumors of there... read more
For those of you that have already started block scheduling can you please tell me how many associates they schedule to open for the member service group such as cashiers, door, membership desk, club pick up, mss?
I know that we have to work 300 hrs to qualify to get Sam’s Share quarterly, and that everyone’s amount is based on the number of hours they work, but since 300 hours is the minimum, what is the maximum hours that we have to work to get the max pay... read more
Grocery lead and technology lead going away???is this true??
As we all know, if we leave early now, we get points on our record. So with that being said, I’m an overnight associate and I have noticed many times where associates, managers, and team leads are all just hanging out at the patio set while that 9... read more
Just an observation of tonight's closing shift.... can't punch out until 9 minutes before your scheduled time, so cashiers are sitting in the patio furniture, hanging out in the breakroom, wandering around the sales floor...

This attendance policy is f---ed up. We have more people calling I. With this so called protected sh-- than ever before. How do you run a club with this and be proficient.
Is it True that They Are getting rid of Technology and Marketing TLs? And if they Do when and How Soon? Can Domeone Respond Kindly Please?
Where did all the clowns go that kept telling us that half of fresh including a FAM was gonna be eliminated? Guess not?
Is 3-11:30 a real shift someone please say no.
I still can’t believe this is happening. My 25 year career will be over as I chose not to stay. Good luck to anyone who stays. Things just aren’t the same anymore. I’m sure going to miss helping the associates as it won’t be the same for them.
If you are a long term associate who dropped to part time because of job elimination and are later offered a full time position again do you go back to earning your PTO the old way? Having never left the company you would still be FT and 20+ years... read more
So we all know that is employed at Sam's club that once a week we must check our cbl's. So with the new attendance policy there is a CBL that we are supposed to watch that they are not telling you about because you are supposed to check for your Cbls... read more
Is part time going down to 4 hours a day? That’s what I heard. With all the new full time jobs being offered and third shift coming to days, there won’t be a need for part time. Can it be?
How many do you have in you're club we have 3 and been told one of us has to step down to part time
More than a few people are displeased with block scheduling, and that is very visible on this board and in real life. But are people displeased with this scheduling system to a point that a certain amount of them could leave the company and was the... read more
I don’t understand why a company this large chose to launch One.Walmart.com as well the MANY new 5&10 apps that we were “ encouraged to install on our PERSONAL phones before they had worked out the bugs! NOT ONE APP has worked properly or even... read more
People here see the worst in everything. 4 weeks ago half of fresh was gonna be gone. Didn’t happen. This week, everyone will be fired for attendance and scheduling is gonna fail. Fact is, not one FAM has lost their job and the schedules will be... read more
I worked at Sam's for many years. I have seen all the benefits of working for Walmart slowly go away year after year. It used to be 4 associates of the month now gone. You could hold department meetings and club use $25 of goodies. Safety bbqs every... read more
It's funny how Costco holds a higher standard, and sticks to it and has the better reputation. Sam's is all about not caring about the rules or associates. It's about money money money. Get rid of this position and don't hire as many people. No more... read more
What happens to night team leader when we move to days
Do we go back to former scheduling practices or will they come up with another “brilliant” idea? Seems to me that there is a big chance that block scheduling does not prove to be effective like many other innovations that went down the drain before.
So anyone that has overnights on days now, what happened to back room associates?
The protected PTO is so much better than the old attendance policy. You can use it for whatever reason you could be late 100 times this year and still not get one point in the new attendance policy because of the protected PTO. You need to read all... read more

Associates can only take 5 vacation days in succession during any given month. Must have assistant manager approval along with general manager approval.
Saw my job title changed the other day to Produce JM and my FAM1 title changed to PM. SInce when do they just change job titles without letting you know? Any information on what it means?
Will I lose this starting next week when there’s more overnights?
I was told that it is company policy that everyone had to leave the building at the same time if you were closing. If my shift ends before others i basically have to be stuck in the building until everyone leaves. Anyone know about this? Managers... read more
