Cafeteria Worker in Yuba City, CA

Don’t work here

Bad company they don’t respect your time and are horrible and the management is bad i hated working here and wouldn’t recommend plus they don’t have an empathy for you

Sales Associate in Fishkill, NY

Overall great place

I started working there while in college and they were very flexible with hours. If I needed more I let them know and they provided them and if I needed a little less to study for exams or midterms they were very accommodating. You get discounts at the food court and everyone has a sense of team spirit, definitely a family vibe.

Cashier/Member Services in W Bell Rd, Phoenix, AZ

Not for a parent

They don't care about your family here, the management sucks and they don't hire for management within the company they will bring in someone from Walmart or a different company so they don't have to train and they don't train for any positions they just throw you in the water and hope you float, and some of the MEL'S have no idea what they are doing they you rather have a cashier help out and they close at 8 but have you stay until 9 to help other departments

Forklift Merchandiser in Thornton, CO

Decent pay, no proper training

No instruction from management. Left to your own to figure out what to do as far as job tasks. No clear direction. Have to kiss butt to move up . Low morale. Doing the work of others and no proper training.

Very relaxed and laid back. Probably the easiest interview you could have. Questions were simple: *Can you work weekends? *What availability can you work? *What do/did I do at my current job? I wasnt asked any situational questions. After all the questions, you will be given a tour through the area you will be working in** I suggest asking a lot of questions about the job, store, benefits and any other questions you might have! They like that! And it gives you more of an idea of what you're getting into. **

Walmart-owned Sam's Club raises minimum wage to $15, as retailers and restaurants compete for talent

Sam's Club said Tuesday that it will raise its minimum wage from $11 to $15 later this month.

With the move, the membership-based warehouse club will now have a noticeably higher starting wage than its parent company, Walmart, where the minimum hourly pay was recently raised from $11 to $ The pay increases at Sam's Club and Walmart are effective Sept.

Sam's Club has nearly stores and about , employees. In a memo sent to employees, Sam's Club CEO Kath McLay said most employees — about 95% — already make at least $15 an hour. However, she said the retailer will bring all hourly workers up to that level and step up pay for other roles.

Going forward, McLay said Sam's Club associates can make as much as $34 an hour — an increase from the maximum hourly pay of $ that they could make previously, depending on location. She said the average hourly rate will be more than $

"We want you to be competitively paid, whether you've found your destination job as, say, a forklift operator, meat cutter or cake decorator, or you're just starting out and eager to climb the ladder," she said. "We want you to know that Sam's Club is a place where you have opportunities to be promoted, earn a degree, or change direction."

More than 34% of hourly workers at Sam's Club will get a raise, as of late September, as a variety of roles get a pay bump, according to the company. For instance, hourly pay for team leads will now start at $19 an hour versus $18 previously, forklift drivers will start at $17 instead of $15, and personal shoppers will make at least $16 instead of $

Over the past few months, retailers from CVS Health to Target have offered higher pay and new perks as they try to recruit and retain employees in a tight labor market where job openings outpace the number of unemployed Americans. They have also needed to fill more supply chain-related roles, from freight handlers to online order fillers, as consumers spend money they saved during the pandemic and shop in new ways.

Sam's Club's parent company, Walmart, is the largest private employer in the country, with nearly million workers. Walmart and Sam's Club have trailed behind competitors such as Target and Amazon that already pay all employees at least $15 an hour. Costco, one of Sam's Club's biggest rivals, raised its minimum wage to $16 an hour earlier this year.

Sam's Club has seen a surge in sales during the pandemic. Its membership has hit an all-time high over the past several quarters, though the company does not disclose how many members it has.

It has rolled out new, tech-based features to stand apart from Costco. For instance, Sam's Club launched a new app-based option that allows shoppers at select stores to carry home some items they buy and to ship others, such as TVs, directly to their doors, all in a single transaction.

These updates will let you know when your application has been read and if you're still being considered for the position that you applied for. Apply now

Apply online

If you prefer, you can use the Sam's Club hiring website to apply for a job. If you choose to apply in this way, make sure that you come back and update your StartWire profile. This way, you will always have a record of when and where you applied.

Apply in-store

All Sam's Club locations are equipped with computer kiosks that you can use to apply for a position in the store. Using a kiosk can be a great option if you don't have reliable internet access at home. And if you're lucky, you just might be able to make a personal connection with someone who will be involved in the hiring decisions.

The Sam's Club Application Process

Before you can apply for a job at Sam's Club, you will need to create an account on their hiring site. Creating an account is very easy, and will only take a couple minutes of your time. To create your account, you will need to provide a username, password, and answers to five security questions.

Once your account is setup, it's time to begin the application process. During the application, you will be asked to provide the following information: your name, address, phone number, schedule availability, references (2 are required), employment history, education, licenses, social security number, and salary requirements. We highly recommend that you take the time to prepare all of this information before you start the application. Not only will preparing the information ahead of time help you complete the application as quickly as possible, it will also ensure that you have everything you need (which will prevent application timeouts).

Assessment

Once you've provided all of your personal information, it's time to take the assessment. The assessment is a series of 65 questions that are designed to help Sam's Club learn more about you, so they can determine if you would make a good fit for their team. It will take most people about 40 minutes to complete the assessment, so make sure that you will have enough uninterrupted time before you begin.

To give you an idea of what you should expect from the assessment, here are a couple sample questions:"

'One of your customers has just said to you, "The service here is terrible." You should say:'

'It's been a very busy day, and you have just gotten a customer complaint. This is the third time today that this same customer has complained to an employee about the same problem. However, it's the first time that you have spoken with her. Your best course of action is to:'

Sometimes, it can be difficult to know exactly how to answer a question. For example, maybe your response would depend on the circumstances at the time, how busy the store is, or your manager's preferences. In those cases, you should take a minute to think about why they have chosen to ask the question. What are they trying to learn about you?

Background check

At the beginning of the application, you will be asked to consent to a pre-employment background check. Any employment offers that you receive will be contingent upon passing the background check.

Drug test

You will also have to consent to a pre-employment drug test. If you fail the test, any employment offers you receive will be rescinded.

How long does Sam's Club keep your application on file?

Sam's club keeps all applications on file for 60 days. If you have not heard back after 60 days, you will need to apply again if you want to remain in consideration.

Current CEO: Brian Cornell

Status: Active, subsidiary of Wal-Mart

In , Walmart was founded in Rogers, Arkansas, by Sam Walton. Mr. Walton said that he had “always been driven to buck the system, to innovate, to take things beyond where they've been.” With these thoughts in mind, he opened the first Sam’s Club in Midwest City, Oklahoma, on April 7,

By April , more than 3, Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs operated in the United States with nearly more in Brazil, China, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Currently, Walmart has 8, stores and employs , workers in 15 countries. Worldwide, Walmart employs more than million people and is the largest private employer in the U.S. and Mexico.

- designer goods

Most Sam’s Clubs locations contain a pharmacy, photo, bakery, tire and battery, optical, café, and floral departments.

My Experience Working At Sams Club

Workers Reveal What It's Really Like To Work At Sam's Club

Scott Olson/Getty Images

By Jessica A. Scott/Nov. 21, pm EDT

When you walk into a Sam's Club to do your bulk shopping (and of course, indulge in a few delicious samples), do you take notice of the people working there? It's easy to take them for granted as they're climbing ladders to get you the last bulk case of coffee or checking your receipt at the door, but what's their day like as an employee? 

Every Sam's Club is different, but there are some worker experiences that seem to be pretty universal. There are a lot of things going on behind the scenes that the public doesn't know about, and once you do know, you might appreciate those people in the blue vests just a little bit more. 

Whether you're thinking of applying for a job at this major warehouse store chain founded by Sam Walton, or if you're just curious about what it's like to be employed by Sam's Club, we have the answers. Here's a look at what former and current workers are saying about what it's like to work at Sam's Club.

Sam's Club workers often have to handle a lot of tasks at once

When it comes to Sam's Club, most employees never know what kind of work they'll be doing from one minute to the next.

According to a lengthy post from an alleged Sam's Club worker on Reddit, there are several different managers at Sam's Club on duty at one time, and they often all assign different tasks to the same worker in the same time frame, causing a lot of stress and confusion. In fact, the poster lovingly referred to the resulting chaos as a "garbage fire." 

EOther employees from other store locations vouched for the truth of this post. They say employees are often given assignments in departments they are not used to working in, and often resort to taking sick days just to get a break from the madness for a bit.

Is this different from any other retail job? Maybe, or maybe not. But it sounds like it's what you can expect from Sam's Club.

Understaffing is common at Sam's Club and can cause huge problems

Kat Wade/Getty Images

Multiple threads for Sam's Club employees on Reddit mention that one of the biggest challenges of working at Sam's Club is under-staffing. If you've ever been to a Sam's Club, you know these stores are massive – and workers often find themselves handling an entire huge department by themselves. 

Many of the stores are already understaffed, so when someone goes on vacation or calls in sick, chaos ensues. Several workers complain that they're doing the work of 10 people and only getting paid for one, thanks to all of the call-ins and general lack of employees. 

A new system has been put in place by management to cut down on the amount of sick and personal days workers take, but for some this only serves to add more stress, since the ones who truly need a break can't take a mental health day if needed.

Most Sam's Club stores won't hire workers under 18

Scott Olson/Getty Images

If you're looking for a part-time job to take on while in high school, you should look elsewhere. 

According to Sam's Club workers, the warehouse chain doesn't typically hire any minors at all. Others say that people under 18 may be able to work as cart collectors outside, but are unable to do anything else in the store. One person even commented that these young cart workers aren't even really allowed to come into the store at all, which could be brutal in cold weather.

Working in retail is a rite of passage for many teenagers, and is often their first step into the world of working adults. Other stores will hire workers under the age of 18, but when it comes to Sam's Club, only full-fledged adults are allowed. 

Sam's Club workers hate asking you to sign up for a credit card

If there's one thing that really irks us about shopping at Sam's Club (and a lot of other stores), it's that the cashier always tries to talk you into signing up for a store credit card. It's a hassle, and chances are, if you don't have one already, you don't want one (or at least you're not looking to sign up for one right then and there at the checkout counter). Before you start to feel angry with the cashier for pressuring you, though, you should know one thing: they hate this part of their job, too.

According to several reviews on Indeed, Sam's Club cashiers can't stand forcing customers to listen to their spiel about upgrading their membership or getting a Sam's Club credit card. 

One current employee even goes so far as to say that management puts selling these upgrades and cards above the satisfaction of their customers, which leads to an environment in which employees feel more like bullies than people who are helping shoppers.

Sam's Club has repeatedly tried to make employees work for free

Kat Wade/Getty Images

If there is one thing workers should never have to stand for, it's not being paid for their work. Unfortunately though, this seems to be almost common practice at Sam's Club and its parent company of Walmart, as over the years many workers have reported they have been made to work overtime with no pay.

A article in the The New York Times described how workers in both stores in multiple states were often asked to stay past quitting time to help clean up the store — and were sometimes locked in by managers even after they had clocked out and were not allowed to leave until the store was spic and span.

This type of treatment has resulted in several large, class-action lawsuits against the Walmart corporation in recent years, including one in California that involved workers being denied lunch breaks, and one in Pennsylvania in which workers were forced to work up to 12 hours of unpaid overtime per month. 

As recently as , a suit was started that alleged Sam's Club time clocks wouldn't accept time punches if the worker was clocking in or out more than 15 minutes before or after their scheduled shift, resulting in even more unpaid time. 

Sam's Club isn't the best place for workers' mental health

You know that you've found yourself in a toxic work environment if you almost always feel mentally and physically drained at the end of the day. 

Sadly, many Sam's Club workers feel this way about their job according to threads on Reddit. According to their posts, many employees feel as if they are asked to do too much, and are being pulled in too many different directions at the same time, and they feel as if they are not being heard by their bosses if they try to discuss the issue.

Several Sam's Club workers have had to use sick days just to get a mental break from the place, and others say they're considering quitting after just a few months, explaining that no matter how badly they could use the money, dealing with the work environment is just not worth it. 

An alarming amount of alleged Sam's Club workers on Reddit report that working at Sam's Club has either activated an anxiety disorder or made an existing one worse. One even says that "the whole company is a dumpster fire of depression and dysfunction." 

Management doesn't always have workers' backs at Sam's Club

Scott Olson/Getty Images

One of the biggest complaints from current and former Sam's Club employees on Indeed is that the managers are unreliable and, at times, even cruel. 

One alleged merchandising floor team leader at Sam's Club says the manager plays favorites, giving better shifts to certain workers and generally just being nicer to some people than others — a claim that is backed up by other similar reviews.

The most common complaint about Sam's Club managers, though, is that they just plain don't listen to their employees. Many workers say they feel their managers simply don't care about them, which doesn't create a lot of trust in the workplace.

To make things even worse, some posters claim managers won't accept sick notes from doctors, resulting in workers getting punished or possibly even fired for being ill.

There's a lot more to the Checkout Supervisor job at Sam's Club than you think

Scott Olson/Getty Images

According to a discussion on Reddit, the most underappreciated position at Sam's Club is Checkout Supervisor. The Checkout Supervisor (COS) is responsible for working the front end of the store, making sure that everything goes smoothly in the checkout lanes. 

What most people don't realize, however, is that there is a whole lot more to this position than just making sure all the items make it into customers' carts without incident. In fact, according to posters on Reddit, the COS is the go-to person for almost any problem that arises during the working day, and these employees end up filling in for numerous different departments and even working as a cashier themselves. They run around playing gopher for other departments, they work the door checking membership cards and receipts, and they act as the department head — even when it isn't their job. Many claim to not even get lunch breaks.

Unfortunately, all of this work isn't just unappreciated by customers, it is unappreciated by the COS' co-workers as well, with some of them even taking to Reddit to claim that COS is an "easy job," when the reality seems to be quite diffirent.

Handing out samples at Sam's Club can be pretty boring

One of the great joys of shopping at Sam's Club is that you have the chance to sample food. Sample ladies (and sample men!) set up carts around the store and cook up delicious treats for you to try, which is pretty darn awesome. 

It might not be as awesome for those handing out the samples though, though, as they tend to get really bored. According to a first-hand report by a sample worker named Jan on Yes and Yes, the hardest part of the job is standing in one place for three hours straight, with only one (unpaid) minute break. 

To make herself less bored, Jan would do things like see how long she could stand on one foot or rearrange and count her remaining samples. She would also put her gear in alphabetical order, or read the labels on all the items nearby.

It's worth noting that the sample servers don't actually work for Sam's Club, but instead for a company that contracts with them. Nevertheless, their days are still spent inside of Sam's Club locations. 

There have been several documented cases of discrimination against Sam's Club workers

Kat Wade/Getty Images

Alleged unpaid overtime isn't the only shady thing happening at Sam's Club — there have also been multiple reports of employees being discriminated against while working there. 

In , a transgender woman filed a lawsuit because she was called "thing" and "it" when she began transitioning while working at a Sam's Club store in North Carolina. She was then allegedly fired when she complained about this terrible treatment, which led to her suing the company for both monetary compensation and to force them to put stricter regulations in place to keep employees from harassing others like her.

A year later, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission also sued the marketing services company that provides food demonstrators at Sam's Club because of their treatment of disabled employees. According to the report, disabled employees such as food demonstrators were not allowed to sit down during shifts that were several hours long, in spite of health issues that made it extremely difficult to stand for long periods of time. That employee wasn't directly employed by Sam's Club, but they did work for the company contracted by Sam's Club to send workers.

Around Thanksgiving, Sam's Club workers get a free turkey

Scott Olson/Getty Images

In spite of all the other things we said here, working at Sam's Club isn't all bad. In fact, there are a few perks here and there worth mentioning, like the free turkeys handed out in November so that workers can have one for Thanksgiving dinner. 

According to a recent conversation on Reddit, this is a fairly new tradition, and some suspect that it is a way to keep morale up in this busy holiday time of year. The thread was initially started after the end of a one-day sale to congratulate all the workers who made it through what turned out to be a hour shift for some. If those people don't deserve a free turkey, we don't know who does! 

One commenter actually compared the passing out of free turkeys to President Eisenhower making sure all his troops in World War II got a Thanksgiving dinner to try to make up for the horrors of war, though so make of that what you will.

Reviews

Merchandising Team Lead in Oakland County, MI

Lots of hard work, but overall worth it.

Working as a merchandiser or merchandiser lead can be very stressful, but once properly trained, it gets a lot easier. I start by directing my associates to stock water/paper, have our meeting, and start them to their zones. From there, I work on item/category audits, our receiving area, any layout changes around the store, receiving trucks, and any other odd jobs that need to be done.

Management at my store can be helpful if you talk with the right ones, but in my experience, it's pretty much 50/50 on good management and bad management.

Cart Attendant in Jackson, TN

Pretty laidback and easy job

Overall it's a easy job but sometimes customers and management made it harder than it should be. Customers can be overly and unnecessarily demanding sometimes.

Great hours and good management. Nice place to work. Great Supervisors and benefits. Pay could be better. Great customers and employees. Family friendly store.

Certified Pharmacy Technician in Houston, TX

Not bad

The Pharmacy manager was terrible. They always had a staff shortage and this created a very stressful environment almost all the time. There are better places to work.

Can I work full time at Sam's Club?

September 8,

I was "promoted" to full time in the tire and battery center 9 months ago. It still shows me as part time on workday. Still earning my pto at the part timer rate. I tell management about it and they keep saying they'll fix it but nothing ever changes.

You're supposed to. But if you just say you did they'll believe you without any paperwork. It could have just been my poorly managed store however.

How are the working hours at Sam's Club?

August 2,

Hours suck when you close everyday and work weekends you have no life. This is the way they treat all new employees. You do not work weekends if you have been there for 15 years or longer.

None just here is what’s available what do you want

Very relaxed and laid back. Probably the easiest interview you could have. Questions were simple: *Can you work weekends? *What availability can you work? *What do/did I do at my current job? I wasnt asked any situational questions. After all the questions, you will be given a tour through the area you will be working in** I suggest asking a lot of questions about the job, store, benefits and any other questions you might have! They like that! And it gives you more of an idea of what you're getting into. **
