Does anyone know exactly where they are going to put the Sam's Club and when they are going to break ground?

I have heard behind Target or in front of Bear Creek... And I thought it was to open in August, but if they haven't broked ground yet - how is that possible?

Thanks!

I thought it was behind Walmart across from Kohls but the lot looks small unless they're planning on taking that wooded area behind the road frontage.

Anyone looking for a job at the new sams club? Big mistake they start u part time with the promise of full time, they pay is barely above minimum wage. They transfer pt employees from the other clubs that want ft an leave u pt. They expect u to spend al ur time selling membership at wal mart, the grand opening is going to be a mess because they haven't trained their associates to work in the store. The management is lousy because none of them have supervisor skills, they were also tranfers from other sam clubs. And let's not forget the lousy schedule u work pus all the volenteer work they expect u to do. And by the way if u don't volunteer u can forget about getting hired on ft.

Appearently someone either didn't get a job or was fired. You do not have your facts straight. I am one of those persons whom sells membership in Walmart. It is not something you are forced to do, if u don't want to do that, you can be 'set up' in the store, or u can not work until the store opens. Nobody is transferred unless you put in for a transfer. All new hires spent 1-2 weeks working in other SAMs clubs training. SAMs as well as Walmart has organizations they support by volunteering. It is just that, VOLUNTARY! Nobody is forced to do it. There are FT as well as PT positional more PT but that's just the way it is. The managers were transferred from other clubs, obviously, our club isn't open so where else would they come from? They all have previous managerial experience. Your an idiot and its good we won't be working with you! Have a great day. By the way, if you need a membership, stop by Walmart, I'll sign u up!!!!

You were answering pretty well until the "you're an idiot" comment. Very unprofessional and unnecessary, so you're not a good representative for Sam's Club either.

Sorry about the unprofessional comment. You are absolutely right, it was uncalled for, but it is frustrating that this person would post and try to make Sam's look bad when they obviously don't know what they are talking about. Sam's is a great place to work and look how many job opportunities it has brought to the area. My apologies.

Frustration can cause us to react and respond in unusual ways. Maybe "Gretta" is mad and frustrated with Sam's Club, or just in a bad mood. I don't have any first hand experience with Sam's Club but hopefully Wentzville will benefit from this business. Good luck with your position.

Thank You! The club opens in less than 2 weeks. Grand opening is going to be AWESOME! Lots of fun activities planned. We have signed up almost 9000 new members. Sam's is going to do GREAT things for Wentzville. I'm sure of that.

Fact is Gretta told the truth, worked in management for 15 years with Wal-Mart, they have a master plan, whey do you think the Walton Foundation is worth almost $400 Billion dollars and their workers are barly above the poverty level? Once you take health care out of their check with the trick to buy their stock, most people have $150.00 to live on a week. Tell me that ins't factual. I have seen pay stubs. Their latest gig is picking on the elderly. They have openly admitted that they are happy to get rid of older higher paid associates, they can get more production out of younger, new workers for 1/2 the cost. Where ever the Walton families end up, they can't take all that money with them, I hope they enjoy it here on earth.

I don't know how Walmart treats their elderly employees and I'm sorry you had a bad experience but I LOVE working at Sam's Club! I take home more than $150.00 a week and I'm thankful to have a job that I enjoy. I work with great people, including our managers. I hope everyone who comes in and shops with us has a great experience! We Open On Tues!!!!!!!

Yes truth you are correct about the walton organization, hunnybee needs to do her/his homework. I dont believe hunnybee understood the point you were making, but the only point that needs to be made here is the walton organization has a master plan. Thank you truth for putting the real truth out there.

Hunnybee, you must be in the Honey Moon phase with Sams.
1st Point, simple math.
Avg. St. Louis worker at Sams $8.75 HR. x 40
$350.00 per week.
Average person gets hit with 35% total taxes, Federal, State, FICA, Etc.
$227.50 After taxes.
-$25.00 For stock gimmick.
-$50.00 For Insurance.
$152.50.
2nd Point, went to Sams last week to get some things, asked where a guy I had visited with for years was at, they told me he had been fired. I asked why, he had been there forever. They told me 24 years at Sams to be exact.
About a month ago, they eliminated his title, and cut his pay, I might mention without notice, against MO. Law, however the Fine is only $50, so they (Sams) don't care. Then a few weeks later they asked him to do something that the position previously held was doing, he refused and said you cut my pay and eliminated me from that position, you said it was company wide. They fired him for Insubordination. Come to find out later he ran into another guy in the same position but 25 years younger whos pay was not cut, and position not changed. Google it and see what Wal-Mart and Sams does to their elderly employees. You use to go to Wal-Mart and 10 workers would talk to you, any given day you can go into a Wal-Mart today, wonder around for 2 hours, and not one worker will address, or talk to you. Try it, that is a fact. Most don't appear to enjoy their low wage jobs, selling products provided by Communist China and Child Labor.

Lol truth you did a great job breaking down the pay. Sams uses a very strong form of brainwashing with their sams cheer, team work, an down right making you think you are sooo important. You learn very quickly that they are feeding you a line of č. And yes they pay you at poverty level, and expect you to hug the culture of their company.

Regardless. Minimum wage is minimum wage and the state of Missouri is an at will work state. It means that Same/Walmart can hire and fire for any reason unless a person is "protected" by being part of certain protected groups, but being fired for being old is hard to prove anyway.

If you don't like Walmart/Sams, don't work for them or shop at their stores. Period. If you don't like your paycheck at the end of the week, go back to school and get an education and better yourself.

The anti-Walmart crowd is really getting annoying. I have membership at both Sam's and Costco. I like things about both stores.
