Overtime ban
« on: 21-01-17, 08:41PM »
Any other stores? No overtime at all including checkouts, red calls all day. Direct desk, deli, Electrical, clothing have had opening hours cut and the number of staff reduced. Will it go back to normal?

It happens every year in QTR 4 along with usual cutbacks on consumables; less stock etc  until end of the financial year.

If the store managers held their section managers to account when using overtime nilly willy there would be enough money in the pot for when they needed it not like now struggle and worry if you have earned enough this month.

We are trying to get to grips with Whole Store Scheduler still, so technically we are requesting OT 4 weeks in advance but it never goes smoothly. I haven't felt the overtime pinch to be honest.

Plenty of overtime here, all of non food nights opted to leave, and several day time staff also left, and others had hours cut, so they don't have much choice but to give out overtime.

Place is still f##ked tho.

This happens after Christmas & New Year every year as the end of year results/figures are due to complete on the 28 February and then announced in April.
