fiolettsk.rus are coming in multiple phases. The next phase will include more office positions being laid off, personnel managers, receiving associates, etc... if you sit at a desk, high chance your job gets eliminated, front end salaried managers at will be taking over a lot of the personnel duties at sams, academy managers will be taking over lots of the task at walmart. All salaried managers will all be getting more task added to their routines from hourly jobs being eliminated. Store managers will get assigned multiple task that are currently market manager task, as more cuts will also be made at the market and regional level. It is still being decided how many salaried managers including co managers, APMS and Assistant managers will be cut. Good luck to you all!

It's all true...don't listen to the trolls probably paid by Walmart.
Get out as fast as you can.
It's a sinking ship.
They are eliminating long term employees.
They want to have less paid "yes men"
Two Michigan Sam’s Club locations closing. East Lansing and Farmington Hills.
Do not listen to anything on this site. It is all rumors. I'm sure there will be changes but it will not be announced on here. You can tell by the grammar and punctuation of these post it is not someone at Corporate in a lead role that is "leaking" the information.
Any job, you should have a resume ready. One nice thing about Sam's Club is they will get you a new spot or give you a package. Most companies say bye and you don't get nothing.
What about door greeter positions?
So sad, 5 years at Sam's club and it looks like I will be job hunting again.😕
no one posting on here knows anything. someone sees this,someone here’s that, it’s all nothing. what happens will happen. if you are in a questionable position just be ready.
How do you know personnel gone Dec. 1?
Personnel lead gone 12-1; when will the receiving clerk be position be eliminated? Hope it’s after 1-31 so I can receive my bonus (any amt better than nothing).
Sounds like they are getting rid of associates with 15 years or more. That is what all this is about. Everyone that has been there that long has been loyal to the company, but as you can see they sure are not loyal to us. They just use you and spit you out when they are done with you.
So what positions did you see on the managers work bench that will be gone? What position do you work?
so there is a layout sheet on the mgr's workbench showing the whole club and the associates that their positions will be no longer. this is phase 4 coming up in Jan 2018. It is so sad to see the values of our company going down the drain. I will lose my job along with several more. Up your 401k for the last check to avoid taxes and get the 6% the company will pay. Good luck to all.
After all most 25 years with Sam's club, what a slap in the face. Yes they offer to help you find a position.Of course since they're cutting full time positions, part time 20 hour a week isn't what we need. So greed takes a bow. Sam Walton is rolling in his grave. He believed if you treated your partners right they would give you there best. Maybe you should take a moment to look at moaral, and turnovers. Eighty percent of our club us been one year or less. Why would anyone want to stay? I just hope I can hang in there long enough to retire. So quit bragging about the jobs you offer,unless you also add they are 20 hour, $9.50, no benefit jobs. Burn the book made in America.
You all can sit in disbelief but the same thing happend a year ago when they laid off 7000 back office positions. Everyone said it was rumors. Well look what happened and to sit around thinking it can’t happen to you and it won’t is ridiculous. My advice get out of Walmart and get out as fast as you can....
What about optical market managers
nothing better than someone that thinks they know so much. just creating drama. are you using a crystal ball or your so called knowledge
What about competition shopper associates
What about front end ZMS positions? Will they be eliminated as well? I can see where the training coordinators job should be eliminated.
What about cake decorators ???
You guys should look at the thread about age discrimination. Some guy said he's hiring a lawyer.
Is Sam's Club going to get rid of Fulltime COS or get rid of the position. If so when will the changes take place.
When is the personnel job going to be told
Those of us who are affected by these cuts need to think about the big paycheck they are going to receive if the accept severance package. Consider upping your 401k contribution for that last check as well as your tax exemptions. Wal-mart will match up to 6%. Up yours to 25 or 50%. Better in your account then taken out in taxes. When you withdraw from your 401k later, you are only paying tax on the amount you are withdrawing if you are over 59 1/2, If you are under 59 1/2 you will have a 10% early withdrawal penalty, However, that is much lower than paying 25 - 40%
in taxes due to the large payout. One of our audit associates took the package, Was here for 17 years. She got hit with lots of taxes due to the large payout. Just wanted to pass along some information to help others hold on to their hard earned money. Talk to your tax advisor.
I hope Sam's Club goes down for this! These are mostly LONG TERM associates! You should be ashamed!! Sam Walton is probably rolling over in grave!! I know I worked there for 30 years! Management made sure to get rid of me! It's called KARMA!!
Accounting jobs are officially eliminated yesterday. They have until December 1st to find another job.
Don't buy anything you can't afford on a single income.
Do Sam's club Cos' have anything to worry about? I'm in the process of buying a home! Both my husband and I work there! Feeling concerned!!!
Do Mss have anything to worry about?
What hours does the cash office lead work at Sams Club? We have a part time person that has decided she should open not the team lead of the cash office. The manager changes the hours in JDA scheduling to accommodate her friend, the part time person. This part timer believes that since she has retired from her full time state job and has open availability now she has the right to openand take the cash office leads opening hours.
what about Mss at the front-end
Is Sam's Club shutting down the photo department?
A assistant manager told a hourly for the audit team that the next wave is in June. It Is going to be receiving and marketing plus the marketing manager.
So there are no department managers anymore... and are making us all apply to different positions. Does that mean that if we dont get the job they will lay us off? I dont think the new hours are so bad... but are they gonna have the sames shifts every week? Or are we gonna be flipped all over the place? I dont know how people with young kids are gonna be able to deal with it.
This could easily be considered "the next wave"...
All audit teams (Sam's Club) have been eliminated in PA. At least in my market. I was on audit, that's how I know.
Well, here it is Friday and I haven't seen any positions eliminated yet....so it must be just B'S rumors that are flying around.
My advice to all, use all your PTO, all hours in those so called buckets they set up last year. This was a set up for us not to use. You don't get to use your personal hours once they terminate your position. i am so sad to see this happen to our most dedicated and hard working associates. All of these young, (lean) new hires have no sense of urgency, nor do they care about member service. Good luck to all, and remember, there is life after Sam's.
My club has a Truckload associate. That seems like a position an assistant manager could do. It is only busy about 3 months of the year.
At club level or at HO?
Does anyone know what positions are getting cut on Friday.. We haven't heard anything here.
Just heard the next wave hits this Friday. ..brace yourself.
I wouldn't think maintenance has anything to worry about .
