Who decides which positions will get a raise and which will be screwed over once again?
Topics regarding layoffs at Sam's Club
I changed a few jobs before I came to Sam’s and this is definitely the most stressful place I’ve worked so far. Previous jobs were also in the retail sector, so it is not a matter of the sector but of the company. I am so overwhelmed with work that I... — read more

I know, it’s not something that can be changed unless I find a job in a small grocery store, but lately I’ve been really exhausted having to think about how my work performance will be viewed by the many supervisors I have. There are a lot of them... — read more
I don't even know how I managed to work here for so many years. I didn’t plan to stay that long, but time passed quickly. This is not a company where an ordinary employee needs to spend so many years. I watch young people come, don’t stay around for... — read more

Why is it everytime you change departments as a team lead managers comes to you with all these expectations but yet they been letting the department go straight to the trash can but you have to clean it up smhhhhhhhh.
Stop paying people to stay home, it's being abused while some honest workers never call in.
We have a 30 year associate working CPU who never dispenses orders. He purposely mess up when he is forced to do so. So our supervisor way of handling this issue is to not have him dispense. This is so irritating and unfair. I get it he has been in... — read more
Legacy sick hours. It has been awhile since I have read any posts regarding this topic. I am assuming that there have been no issues using these hours and the managers know how to help out the associates.
to slightly improve the atmosphere among employees? Someone here gave a really good comparison, working at Sam’s is like going back to high school. I don't understand why management allows negative patterns of behavior such as gossiping... — read more

Been a week since I walked out! As a fresh lead, I can confidently say that $22 was not worth me losing time with my kids and going on anxiety meds. FAM’s at my club had no clue how to run the place and ran us all til we couldn’t run anymore. No more... — read more
A week or so ago the signs came down and now masks are at the discretion of the member. New hours kick in and we still have members trying to get in after 8:30, had a member show up well after 9 and state they always shop at this time. Scan and... — read more

Its nice when your market manager tour your club and says thank you for yall hardwork your department looks good from backroom, sanitation, and sales floor I love that positive feedbacks.
I'm a fresh manager and we just had club inventory and Easter I'm working like a red head step child. So when my GM refuse my vacation all I said to myself was I'm done I turned in my resignation and the look on her face it felt sooooooo good.
Anyone ever had to deal with another coworker whom befriends to move ahead ? You hear them talk negative about them and then when in front of that person complete opposite. I’ve seen this happen in my club and unfortunately I’m not in a position to... — read more
Anyone else have the same associates going out for covid leave and getting paid or just my store?! Can you even imagine if some of the good associates just started doing what everyone else was doing? Amazing some of us still feel guilty when clearly... — read more
When did Sam's Club decide it was ok to work with restrictions? I thought if you didn't hurt yourself at work and a dr put you on restrictions, then you couldn't work until the restriction was lifted. We have someone who has health issues and... — read more
What I mean is, are there clubs with good managers who try to make work as pleasant as possible and foster good and cooperative work environment? When I worked at Home Depot years ago, I remember the store atmosphere varied drastically and it always... — read more

Sam’s s—s! Need I say more?
Anyone else have a store manager that is scared of an assistant manager? Ours won't do anything against what fresh manager says. She retaliates against people and he backs her up.
Who else hates the new swing shift all over the place.
It’s been close to 9 months since I’ve seen appropriate staffing at my club. We’ve been understaffed for long enough that it’s starting to feel as if the added workload from being shorthanded is the new norm. And considering that all of us are... — read more

I'm newish here and there's one thing that's been driving me crazy. I didn't receive proper training, so there are thing I have to ask my manager about. When I do, he never gives me a straight answer. He's only looking to get rid of me as soon as... — read more
How come the GMs received 120k hazard pay, plus their bonus on top of it, when we were there being exposed to 5k people a day while they sat in their office? Explain please!!!
"Placing blame on managers with the changes is not fair. It is home office who is making these changes. TL's do the schedules in our club, they also open the requisitions for jobs and do the coaching. Personally I think this is ridiculous. We have... — read more
Whenever our club manager starts talking about the possibility of layoffs, guess what, layoffs happen. I imagine he is very well informed upfront when these sorts of downsizing happen. This time, the other day he spoke that due to the pandemic we... — read more
If a manager has to sign in so the leads can do schedules, are the leads suppose to be doing schedules. Maybe home office is just too stupid to catch on that Managers have assigned all their task to the leads and are basically sitting in the office... — read more
Why? To be a lead is to be considered the best associate in your specified area. The best meat cutter, the best cake decorator, the best produce culler, etc. and STILL have a working knowledge of other specialized areas. I'm not saying ALL fresh... — read more
Idk about the rest of you but I think the team scheduling worked absolutely fantastic for the Easter holiday
