Title: Cash office jobs
Post by: Sjm on 18-05-19, 06:59PM
Has anyone else heard any rumours about the cash office being further simplified and redundancies?

Our store manager has said cash office hours are going, as the job is streamlined due to less cash transactions nowadays.

They have this grand vision of Tesco going back to basics and once more running as one man with a stall.

They don't make any money that's how. Business rates through the roof and alot of managers doing nothing.

Customers still use cash, it might be less but still use it. Routines have changed, more single man checks but due to all being on camera and online anyway. There may be changes but for the company the impact on saving hours will not be a big one.

Does anyone actually just do Cash Office nowadays?
We are the call upon people for change run, dot com picking, checkouts, shelf filling, checkout running, kiosk and csd.

In the store I used to work at the cash admin couldn't work shopfloor due to a back injury, could work checkouts due to dyslexia & couldn't do labels as she had an allergic reaction to the paper.... She spent 30 hours a week doing naff all, mostly. A few people with a variety of odd ailments in that store...

Suspect we are moving towards cashless society as more and more people use contactless, when it does cash office will then become part of our history.

Going back to the original post, it's pretty obvious that as cash is being used less and less cash office workload will reduce proportionately.

The same has applied to checkouts with the introduction of self serve and in 20 years time there will nearly no petrol stations.

It is a shame but everyone has to change with the times
Title: Re: Cash office jobs
Post by: Welshie on 20-05-19, 08:49AM
Tills still have to have change put into them and self service tills need filled even if only a few people pay cash . Unless we go to a card payment only business I think cash office are as safe as anyone else atm .
Re; petrol stations it's not long since they were telling everyone to buy diesel cars , now they're the spawn of Satan.   For a while we were all being told to buy dual fuel petrol/gas now they're not around anymore . I won't be worrying about petrol stations closing just yet although all going pay at pump only is a possibility.

Why are you working at Tesco when you are obviously a consultant of some repute if you can diagnose and decide someone with disabilities is a malingerer with the scantest of evidence in the form of someone who thinks 'they do nothing'

My sentiments exactly.....as a sufferer of a "hidden disability" I often encountered ignorant colleagues who felt obliged to pass comment when I refused to work certain departments as I was covered by a medical exception letter from my doctor.

To the ones who tutted....I used to reply that I was sorry they were irritated by my inability to perform the task due to my disability, but they should try living with it...... :(
To the ones who actually asked "why....what's wrong with you?" I would reply that if I wished my medical condition to be common knowledge, I would have my consultations conducted in the doctor's/consultants waiting room :-X

They still have to be in the store and fulfill their contracted hours, an SM got a final written warning by the AM for doing 12-15 hour work weeks when an SL complained, he was investigated and bollocked for it. Was funny.

Don't try being funny when you clearly misunderstand what is being discussed. It makes you and anyone complimenting you look stupid. To clarify, we were discussing one specific individual.

A genuine disability is not to be confused with that individual claiming they have three completely different ailments that perfectly excludes them from doing specific jobs, just so they don't have to get off there arse and do work outside their normal role they don't fancy. That requires no further diagnosis than common sense and seeing through blatant BS.

I can't work newspapers by the way because harrowing headlines give me nightmares.

 Duh.....Dr an_anon

Can I get an appointment please.....apparently I'm stupid and lack common sense...as I agree and do believe people have differing allergies i.e. label adhesives, which apparently is BS, even though it is non evident that that person has declared said allergy beforehand, but accused of declaring it on spot as an alleged excuse...

I can do papers though, as I'm illiterate.....due to excessive form of dyslexia so can't read any upsetting headlines  :thumbup:

Please, pretty please, make me as perfect as you  :-* :-* :-*

Again, trying to be funny but clearly not capable of basic comprehension. One person with one allergy, fine. Two ailments, maybe. One person with three specific issues and more if needed, that means they can only ever do their designated job, unlikely. To clarify, if this same person was asked to work trolleys they would claim that the plastic handles give them eczema and wearing gloves would trigger their psoriasis.

We were discussing ONE person making repeated excuses. One person who will clearly say anything so that they don't have to work on any other department. I suggest you read posts twice and maybe get an adult to help you go over what has been written before commenting in future.

And I had a " hidden disability" which prevented me from working on 5 different depts....yet I held my head high and accomplished 25+ years working, and giving my all, on the depts I was able to work, and much appreciated for my high standards thank you.

I achieved much, am highly educated, and treat the likes of yourself with the derision you deserve....so if that makes me an "effing dimwit" who has been made redundant and therefore a danger in the workplace, then I am happy to go and leave it to the likes of yourself....god help everyone if you are an example of the new breed... :-X

Oh I note you have now deleted the paragraph which stated that you understood why people were getting rid of and losing their jobs, and a danger in the workplace......so you aren't prepared to get the backlash of your childish and ill thought remark.....don't blame you  :-X

Oh and now I note you have removed the remark of me being an "effing dimwit"....did an adult tell you to do that.... :D

Eh people are being deliberately obtuse.

Two simple facts, there are people who fake illnesses/conditions, and unfortunately there are people who are wrongfully accused of doing so.

This is an anonymous website, so no one knows the same level of context for each individual situation as the person posting about that situation. Now that doesn't automatically mean an_anon is correct in his statements, but getting holier than thou and assuming he is wrong/insensitive when you have zero context is silly.
Title: Re: Cash office jobs
Post by: lucgeo on 20-05-19, 10:10PM
Perhaps if you had read an_anon's post, prior to the editing, you would be more aware of the personal offensive, insentative remarks directed toward me, and other colleagues recently made redundant, and may have a better understanding of the context, and appreciate my response was wholly justified and far from silly, and perhaps refrained from giving your own superior opinion on a response to a severely edited part post.
Title: Re: Cash office jobs
Post by: alf on 20-05-19, 11:33PM
I didn't read it no, but my post has no relation to that, and frankly you started the childish antagonist digs at him, so save your self righteousness .

But again, my post wasn't in relation to whatever nonsense he said and then edited, I'll illiterate my point.

an_anon may well be making false assumptions about this specific person, he may not be, but he clearly knows more about the situation than any of us.  So writing mocking posts when you have less information, simply because you think he's wrong is rather short sighted, if anything  you are in the peculiar situation where you are making assumptions about his assumptions.

Title: Re: Cash office jobs
Post by: alf on 20-05-19, 11:57PM

*a quick edit*
I misread the original quotes, this "specific" person is actually from AlexM's post, so I guess you are both arguing over a situation in where you have no information other than what alex has given your own assumptions lol.

Not the first time its happened and won't be the last, an S.M in a superstore a few years back got investigated for another matter and the people doing the investigation had to go through about 4 days of cctv just to find a single example of him in the shop, and his rota made out he had done 10 plus hours each day.

Who investigates superstore S.Ms? My understanding is that Superstore S.Ms are the same work level wise as Convenience group AM's, if there's an AM for superstores, i don't want to know how much they're on lol.

I apologise for being so sensitive.....I took calling me an "effing dimwit", stupid and your understanding of why people, like myself, who agreed with Forrest gimp, are a danger in the workplace and deserve to be got rid of, were actually offensive remarks.

Note to myself....stop thinking core values.

This page is about the cash office not health. The Team Managers manage the shift let them tell people who is doing what. You find the ones doing the accusing are nosey lazy *****.  Just do your own work and don't ask questions about what other are/aren't doing.

Post by: misty-2001 on 21-05-19, 04:47PM
This rumour has been mentioned in our store as well. I personally think that the reality of it is is that the job has now been completely streamlined down from the role it once was. There aren’t many procedures left now especially if you’re in an Autosafe store. Everything is now single manned and the job is being made into a role where ‘anybody’ should be able to go in and do the job. The real cash office staff know that it isn’t as simple as a half a day training then you should be fully signed off on your training card but that is how the people above thinks it should be. Unfortunately the job has gone from 2-3 people working a full shift in the office to a 4 hour a day role

No you stop trying to score points, You are not entitled to an opinion about this persons disability well you are but you are obviously wrong. You have no clue what is wrong with them but feel able to call them malingerers work shy or lazy, shout about how they do nothing while you do oh so much work. Become a doctor or consultant become their physician then come here and tell us they are full of BS and there is nothing wrong with them.

It is not as easy as you seem to think to be allowed to abstain from tasks that you are unable to do it means going through occupational health amongst other stressful things. As for trying to be funny I was being anything but, you however with the newspaper remark seem to take disabilities as a joke, whats the matter does it upset you when you have to do something they are unable to do?

Three completely different ailments !  In case anybody thinks that that is not possible or probable I have a family member who suffers from 9 ( yes [you]NINE[/you] ) and is on the road to recovery from a 10th ( TENTH ) that occurred.

So lets get back to "Cash office jobs".

I don't work for Tesco any more. I left for a much better paid job with better perks, no bank holidays to work, weekends off, no ridiculous early or late shifts & where I get treated very well & get paid double time for any voluntary overtime I might want to pick up.

Interesting that job has been referred to as cash admin by some. We have cash office, admin and wages colleagues. Is it that the suggestion that it has or it becomes a combined role?
Title: Re: Cash office jobs

In express, the admin does all of these roles.
