A bonus is a way of company to appreciate their staff for the effort/job in certain time, the bigger the %, the more appreciation.
Well if some staff got higher % than other, regardless the value of their job, workload wise against their payment, that mean the company think they contribute more to the target.

If you got 2,x% bonus, that is exactly what the company think of your contribution for the target. And that will be exactly what the company will have in this summer critical time from a staff that got 2,6% bonus, an extra 2.6% effort.
Btw, 2,2% increase in sales against  higher inflation or if want to be fair, calculate price rise in most item in tesco mostly from essential and daily product that prolly higher than inflation, it is hardly an achievement. Higher profit before tax compare to last year just simply this mess from those bosses before is not affecting too much, again got nothing to do with real healthiness of the company, financial improvement...yes, but not about competitiveness.

Just because stock can get in and still can be worked, the store still operating, doesnt mean anything. Remember recently maplin, toy r us, bhs, still done all of that and just goes bankrupt because fundamentally are so weak.

Hear stores did well from bonus how did distribution do as Middlesbrough D.C got 2.2% what did other depots get

2.2% in our DC, 45% bonus is ridiculous & way out of comparison to the people actually working.

Can someone explain something to me though?

Last year a lad in our store got a larger bonus than me even though I earned a good £10k more than he does...how ??

You can get anything if you are prepared to give favours. Full family's work in the company it creates so many problems. Some staff are never doing enough work and others stand talking all shift and nothing is said.

No, no, no. Those - and any other businesses for that matter - went to the wall because their leadership was weak. No retail business has ever failed or struggled due to the actions of shelf fillers or cashiers. Whether it be arrogance, incompetence, lack of vision, failure to adapt to changing conditions, executives over-promoted to their level of incompetence or an inability to strategies they have always gone wrong at the top.

Tesco would never have got where and become what it is without shelf fillers and cashiers. All of its problems have always come from executives.

The problem range from executive getting involved in fraud, SMs who are too busy trying to get it and too many TM getting paid over the odds for basic tasks like filling and holiday requests not to forgetting getting colleagues backs up.  A favourite task of the TMs in my place seems to be giving colleagues let's talks. I have only came across one or two in my time who were reasonable but they didn't last long.

Do SATA reps negotiate SM pay and conditions etc (inc bonuses)? AND are SATA reps a part of (and governed by) the 'partnership agreement'?
USDAW have no say in managers pay, Tesco decide it then give it or not,when I asked this I was told the managers voted to take a nice one year pay rise to lose this right, talk about short term vision, now they have had just 3% in 3 years and it looks like they will be given nothing again this year (under the lie of realigning wages in line with each stores size and complexity) and folk wonder why our managers dont give a f***

There is far too many TMs doing naff all that's why they don't get a rise. They should decrease the amount, give each more accountabilities then give them a small pay increase due to the reduced amount.

My understanding is that the Bonus is calculated at head office, and no input needs to be done by the store ,

If that is so then how would this be possible ,

Also Hope you pushed the matter at the time to find out why and how this happened ?

If so what did they say ?

That is exactly what i meant, we are on the bottom just follow the order, and the one on the top making strategy. We done the job but never really appreciated, they make catastrophic  mistakes and just got sacked, often only get moved.
We should also pay store assistants £12 an hour.
Nah, store assistants should just paid £4 per hour, they dont contribute anything, just another burden to the company, it will save some budget that way.
Better pay sm atleast £ 200.000 a year, they are the one who work hard, contribute anything, the backbone of the shop, without them, the shop wont last for a day.

^ That sounds like a contradiction in terms... the same logic as a company applies at store level, shelf fillers and cashiers don't bring a store to it's knees, to do so requires an SM and/or inept managers.

CA's simply follow the lead whatever level they are at or wherever that leadership comes from. No CA in the company got themselves into a position where their premium/overtime/Sunday/Bank Holiday payments were eroded, their pension scheme closed and replaced with an inferior one that transferred invesment risk from the company and onto them, their store closed, their job made redundant etc etc... we have been led to that place, and all CA's have ever done is dutifully followed.

To be back on topic - a bonus may indeed be a way of rewarding staff but it has largely come at the cost at the way we always rewarded staff in the past with free shares and dividends, another factor that has made us worse off over the last few years.

A lot of good a buffet is one day of the week when every shift you are expected to do twice the work for the same money. A lot of good a bonus is when your friends and family have been paid off.
