Sam's Club - racism and rudeness to child.

Sam's Club - rude employee

Went to the gas station last night (for gas) and the attendant was extremely rude. I merely open my window and he just takes my card without even asking how much I wanted to put in my tank. (Fortunately, I needed my tank filled but still there was no reason not to ask, even the most basic and unprofessional of gas station attendants at least bother to ask their customers).

After filling my tank he just hands me my receipt and walks away (which I could care less about). What bothered me was that he had the nerve to just take my card without even asking how much gas I needed. I thought that was pretty inconsiderate, impolite, and very unprofessional. I am absolutely disgusted that even a job that requires minimal customer service skills and manners would be approached this way. Should be reminded basic social skills.

Lol wow...i like this site already. Very troll-friendly...and helpful comments.

Actually I didn't, it was in my hand inside the car.

Well its not like I just gave him my card and acted snobby. As soon as I opened the window he snatched the card and kept walking fast so I called out to him the amount (in a calm voice). I have worked in customer service and as stated I know it was a gas station and I was not expecting world class service. But most stations here in NJ the attendants ask how much before pumping gas. I don't care if he was silent after, I just feel the attendant was rude in handling the situation overall and since this is a complaint board I can post what I like. Just like others can post their snide comments.

Says someone posting on a customer complaint board...

Wow posters here are incredibly rude...
First, its the internet so grammar doesnt matter
Second, the guy swiped the card from my hand and walked so fast I actually had to call out to him to tell him the amount because he went so fast
Third, its NJ. You dont pump your own gas here. Those outside wouldn't know...
Grow up people...

Sam's Club - eas whey protein

Sam's Club has stopped selling this product in their warehouse. The new Whey Protein is not the same quality. The Carbs in the new product is much higher than the EAS Whey Protein. Bring it back. Those of us who rely on Whey Protein need the higher quality product.

Don,

Because the optimal time to take 100% Premium Whey Protein + is immediately after exercise, the extra carbs in this protein supplement are beneficial as part of a post workout protein formula.

The creation of 100% Premium Whey Protein + is about giving the consumer the best results for their hard earned dollar by providing the best quality protein formula in a club size for the absolute best results. The protein blend in 100% Premium Whey Protein + contains a whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate and hydrolyzed whey protein concentrate blend – three extremely bioavailable whey protein sources of the highest quality. It also contains unique Recovery Blend of amino acids that also includes Creatine Monohydrate, additional L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine as well as L-Glutamine on top of the already high levels of these key amino acids in whey protein.

And finally it should be noted that the EAS protein also contains more than twice the fat per serving that MuscleTech’s 100% Premium Whey Protein + has. Over With repeated daily consumption, these additional calories from fat will add up.

Sam's Club - upgraded membership rip off

I have been a member of Sam's for probably 12 years. Several months ago, the check out clerk talked me into purchasing an upgrade for my membership. The promise was that if I did not realize any savings, I could get a complete refund. I paid my money (cash) and got a new card. I have not ever saved a penny with the upgrade, so yesterday, I asked if they would just refund my money. Surprise, surprise--the customer service clerk (Stephanie) went into her "sales speel"--I had not had the upgrade long enough to realize any savings, I could not cancel upgrade until my membership was renewed, yada, yada, yada. I asked to see a manager. Some young guy wandered over, did not introduce himself and repeated all of the same sales messages as Stephanie. I told him that if I could not get my money refunded, I was going to contact headquarters. He said "go ahead".
So I did. Lots of phone calls, no help! The latest offer was that they would refund a portion of the purchase price ($35) but that it would take between 4 and 6 weeks. Amazing--they took cash out of my hand for the upgrade, but all they can do is "mail me" a check.Sam Walton never dreamed of a day when one of his companies would "rip off" a customer! Welcome to the US in 2011---greed capital of the world!

But when you upgraded your card, you essentially renewed your card for another year.

Their promise to refund would have been held until it was time to renew your card again.

Sam's Club - slow service

My wait in line yesterday [protected] was longer than usual. It was as though everyone was on break or lunch hour or had gone home. It was around 3:00 in the afternoon. When they finally opened up another line they asked who was paying with credit and they then put the credit card people in a shorter line, but the lady who had put us in another line, opened up her register and took several people from the back of the line, which they got out first and me and another gentlemen were still in the line. When I asked the lady at the register what was the holdup she completely ignored me and asked if I found everything ok, etc. She never responded. When I exited the club, the lady that checks the receipts didn't know what I was talking about and said she didn't now what was going on. It's like they didn't want to at least say, I'm not sure, or anything. Bad business. I was furious.

Geraldine,
I was a cashier at Sams Club in Illinois. It is a nationwide policy for ALL greeters to check ALL receipts at the door. If you notice them not doing so, go to corporate. Also, the reason why the person called for credit only, is because cashiers and anyone on a register gets their own till with $150 to start, so if money goes missing they can keep track of which cashier it was. If a cashier has no till, they can ONLY accept credits as to not mess up the tills that have EXACTLY $150 in it, which would throw accounting into a frenzy. I prided myself into taking members as quickly as possible, even if it meant skipping the PLUS and Credit scripts just to get you out the door. Also, door greeters are not in the loop when it comes to the front end. If one cashier has a problem, they aren't going to know, it's not their department.

I sent an email a few days ago.. and am surprised no one replied.I find that the store on 45th street in West Palm Beach is impossible for people needing a power scooter to shop.It appears that most are out of order and the store help does not go out to the parking lot to bring back those that are not in use. There seems to be an air of indifference to making their handicapped and senior buyers to be able to shop. We will not renew our business membership after a couple of recent visits that made a struggle . The local chain supermarkets make their customers happy by always having assistance a priority concern. Good bye Sam's Club

The racist comments here are BS. I shop the Sam's Club in Novi frequently and have always had my receipt checked. And I'm as white a snow. And I've been in a line full of white people waiting to exit the store.

Um hands up if this sounds like a troll complaint to you...

Why don't they check the receipts of white customers than when I am not shopping. They only check the receipts of white customers if a black is in line behind or in front to pretend they are not racist. If all the customers were white they would not be checking the receipt.

"But w/e, so I guess you were just being upset at having to wait in line afterall. Congratulations on being impatient?"

You also would have been impatient if you had to wait in line for8minutes and 34 seconds. I timed it on my timer and this is the longest I had to wait. They only helped those in front of me because I am black and they are white. The gentleman in front of me was white as well, but they had to draw the line somewhere to not look like racists.

Look can you guys please stay on subject, and yeah Zachary I admit I was rude but she still should have answered my question. The greeter pretended to not to know what I was talking about besides she is racist she checked my receipt as if I would steal from the store just because I am black and from Nigeria. Also I am contacting a lawyer and suing them because I was so furious that I was not concentrating on my driving and got into an accident because I was driving too fast. They caused this by what they did and I will be suing them.

"The last time that happened to me, where they started taking people from the line that were behind me, I took it to corporate. That is unacceptable when you've been waiting patiently and then they come and take people from behind you."

Actually they were in front of me.

I don't know what the complaint is, bbut if you are that upset you should always speak with a manager.

Sam's Club - glasses

Approximately 1. 5 years ago i purchased a pair of glasses / bifocals from sams club. In the 1. 5 years that i have owned the glasses the frames have now (Officially as of today 08 / 10 / 2011) broken 3 times at the hinge. This time i am not covered for the 1 year warrantee on them. Needless to say. . . I feel that this is a defective frame and below the quality that i expect to get from sams club. This is very frustrating. I have prescription bifocals and am required / restricted to wearing them while driving. I need and would appreciate your assistance in replacing them or fixing them again.

Sam's Club - csm and safety

After being stalked by 3 teenagers who kept lifting their shirts and simulating masturbation at Kaitlyn.. I will NEVER go into the FWB Sam's Club again! My daughter was hysterical that 3 teenage boys kept following us around the store and every time she would look in their direction they'd start hand gestures as if masturbating and lift their shirts... She was no more than 2 ft. from me the whole time and every time I turned, they'd duck behind the endcaps or scurry off... thankfully they didn't realize Her father was with us and when he saw what was happening he went to the CSM and asked her to call the police... she actually REFUSED after demanding to know why and asking how old my daughter was... Needless to say he called 911 on his own and requested a store manager

Sam's Club - membership

I had a Plus membership with Sams Club however did not realize any additional savings with this membership. When I renewed I went to the customer service counter and renewed stating that I wanted just the regular membership not the Plus membership. About 4 months after my renewal I went to check out and was told that my membership expired. One month before I had gone to the customer service counter and explained this situation that it was the Plus part that was expiring not my regular membership and was told by the girl that my membership was fine but they would keep asking about the Plus and to just say no I don't want it. Well now they say that cannot purchase anything without renewing. I will never shop at Sams Club again. It is a real rip off. I am reading other complaints on this web site about the Plus membership. I will only be renewing my COSTCO membership

It sucks that sams club is training and forcing all thier employees to sell plus memberships and putting a quota on them to hit each month/day. Some people have to cheat the system to meet thier goals and keep thier jobs and because of this it is adding to thier already poor customer service, this is just one of many examples of this.

Sam's Club - treatment of customers

I am getting very sick and tired of sams club treating customers like cattle. A long line and wait for a cooked chicken... 30 minutes. A long wait in the cashiers line, 30 minutes. One hour wasted... Plus the usual crowded aisles and warehouse atmosphere. We really need costco to open up in the fort bend county area. Sams club needs some competition. The new heb opening up near the sams club will help. I'm paying for a 'club membership plus' at sams club but I may as well be at a walmart on check cashing day... It's crowded, service is poor and the attitude towards customers indifferent.

Sam's Club - poor customer service

I purchased a 1 slice pizza combo.The pizza that was under the light was old and no sauce on it.I asked if I could wait for a fresh piece.The lady said sure it would be 6 mins. so I waited, she came back to me after waiting about 15mins at this time.She then asked me wat I was waiting again after she cooked two orders of pretzels, one pepperoni pizza.She then put the pizza I waited for in but she assumed I orderd a whole pizza but I told her twice it was one slice.So since she cut the pizza in small pieces she put another one in so now I have waited over 30 mins for one slice of pizza.I dont think that was good customer service.

Sam's Club - I will never buy another computer from sam's club, nor will I ever buy another pc

I purchased an HP computer system with 22' screen from Sam's in March 2008 for $1350. I also bought the one year extended warranty. Just about exactly 1 year after purchase the computer ceased connecting to the internet. I called and was told the service person would make an appointment 48 hours after they faxed the order over to them. The repair person did call and said it would be a week for the part to be ordered. A week later, I was told that the person had gone to a funeral for a week. When he finally came two weeks later, it slipped out that he was actually on vacation. He replaced the motherboard, which didn't fix the problem and he said he thought it was the cable company. The cable people came out, no charge within 2 days, checked everything and set up my husband's laptop for him. My next move was to Microsoft, wherein I developed a 'close, personal relationship' with some guy in India over about 10 hours on the phone. After this, I had my entire computer wiped out and was not even able to reinstall the operating system. I again called the service company and they decided that I should ship the computer to Florida where the people there would either fix it or send me a check. I shipped off the computer and a couple of weeks later it was returned, after they replaced the hard drive and reconfigured the motherboard. At this point, the monitor failed and the tower, after initially connecting to the internet, again stopped this function. When I called AGAIN, I asked to speak with a supervisor. I was put on hold several times for extended periods and was told that someone would call me back. A day later they did, and after I angrily said that I was through fiddling around, and I wanted my money back, I was told to my amazement that it was out of their hands and the company in Florida had the final call and that if they decided to repair it 10 times, they would and would not refund my money. I said that I was going to call the Attorney General and the manager said that he would have a repair person come out to my home and fix both the tower and the monitor. He said that it would take two days for the work order to reach the local company (back to the original company that replaced the motherboard). After 3 days I called back, got the runaround and was finally told that they were ordering parts and would call me to schedule an in- home appointment. I am still waiting for the appointment to be made. During this time--I made the first call 2/28, my husband has been out of work, trying to register weekly for unemployment and I have not had the use of my computer. We are now moving into the 3rd month of this nonsense. I am absolutely at my wits end. This is absolutely unacceptable. Had I known that the so-called 'service agreement' meant that I was going to go through this amount of baloney I would never have bought it. At this point, I will never buy another computer from Sam's club, nor will I ever buy another PC. I am absolutely out of patience and furious!

Your plan at minimum is a 2-year plan from April 2009 - Mar 2011. All electrical and electronic failures are covered, not software.
It doesn't sound as if the "service" company person diagnosed the issue properly. Most of the issues that would cause your problem are well beyond what the $10/hr cust svc rep for the service contract company is competent for.
Go to the Club Mgr, he/she has an "escalation" hotline number direct to the service plan administrator. They will take care of you promptly. This escalation should have happended already.
