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?
Topics regarding layoffs at Sam's Club
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

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??

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

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

Why give management exactly what they want? It's only been a few months - why are so many willing to give up so quickly?
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

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.
Has anyone notice in Marketing on the front page of the wire under your schedule that you are no longer listed as Team Lead or Membership Coordinator. Team Lead is Asst to manager, and Coordinator is Apperal.
