I applied for the position of cashier, cashiers greet the customers, ring up their orders and process payments. That's what a cashier does.
That's what I applied for and expected to do at my job. A cashier is not a salesman. At no point during the interview. hiring process or orientation did anyone at Sam's Club say anything whatsoever nor were they forthwith with the fact that the position of cashier you are expected to sell/upsell, sell memberships, upgrade memberships, credit cards and if you don't you face the repercussions of having your hours drastically cut, reduced to 4 hour shifts, late/closing shifts, 3-4 consecutive days off, *** schedule and it was through meeting and talking to other associates who questioned why I wanted to be a cashier and devolved the facts and the truth about the job duties and expectations of a cashier.
To include, they expect you to sell, sell, sell yet you get no individual compensation, it's shared. The cashiers and member services do all the selling yet it's shared amongst all associates in the club, all cashiers are part time and full time employees will get a bigger cut and it's *** that cashiers can be coached and can be fired for failing to meet expectations never divulged in the first place.
All the pressure is on the cashiers yet they're paid the lowest wage in the club when they should be the highest paid position as adequate compensation for salesman. This wasn't an oversight by HR or management, this is deliberate and grossly unfair.
