My Manager is widely accepted to be rubbish at managing - he couldn’t find the brewery, let alone organise a p!ss up there.  However, my new contract arrived on Monday of this week.  First time for everything!

As I can't post a new Topic, please excuse me for posting this query here:

Would you recommend working for Tesco in an Express on the evening shift, and what's the rate of pay for outer london please?

I need the hours they're offering, but I wanted to check it out first.  Have you noticed how the rate of pay is always "competitive" but never actually given.

Cheers.

Instead of taking over a thread why not pay the couple of quid to post your own topic?
Anyhow youll be on just over £8 an hour and be able to enjoy time and a half for hours work on Sundays and bank holidays... until July.....

New contracts are not worth the paper their written on, so powers that be decided against issuing new ones to save time and money.
You are "assumed" to have accepted the new T&C's by virtue of promptly turning up for your shift and accepting whatever is given to you at the end of the month.

Make no mistake when time half goes to time quarter next july tosco will issue new contracts  with the ink still wet,to those affected staff just like they did in 2016.But if something benefits members of staff then tosco arent so quick,and treat staff with a couldnt care less atitude.

When the premiums change they'll have their little trick to catch you all out.

As a new shift leader, I have signed a new contract that reflects my new rate of pay. My manager now tells me I'm contracted to 5/7 days.

But back in 2015 (as a CA) I signed a Sunday opt out form. Do I now have to work Sunday's or does my opt out still take effect?

As Sunday premium changes soon, I have no interest in working them.

In all honesty, you shouldn't have taken the Shift Leader role. It's well known that their contract is 5/7 days a week and that does include Sundays.

If your taking the Shift Leader role and hoping to stay off Sundays you might as well place your mortgage on the possible winner of the Grand National, it's a safer chance.

Not bring scathing, just  being honest.

That's fine, I fully understand. I just needed full time hours and the only way that could happen is by becoming a Shift Leader. Gone are the days of full time CAs.

But, as I'm an hourly rate of pay member of staff, could I dig my heals in and be awkward over this?

I don't mind working 5/6.

 Nope it’s a role requirement, failure to comply will lead to investigation disciplinary loss of job role and said hours. As the only vacancies will be 10-15hrs.

I take it Shift Leaders still have a say on whether they want to work bank holidays or book them off?

Or is that another area where we can be forced to work?

There is still plenty of 3 4 and 5 day contracts on the Tesco Careers. GA roles too. New starts in my store get 1/2 days. The managers expect them to flex up to 4 or 5 shift most weeks. It is just the company looking to save on pensions and sick pay.

Down to your Managers with very little (I mean technically no) negotiation.

In all honesty I understand you wanting full time hours and that a GA  has no chance of them anymore, but the Shift Leader role makes you the store run around and scapegoat in equal measure.

Before I left my store changed Shift Leaders 6 times and that was within a 12 month window.
