All in all a pretty pointless exercise again no doubt dreamed up by someone being paid a lot of money. A structure change which is not even a structure change. Brilliant work.

Almost as good as other recent classic structure changes such as...

Stock control: Let's pay hundreds of thousands or maybe even into 7 figures to make some of the most experienced and clued up employees in the company redundant. Do it on the pretence that lots of routines will be cut so the company won't need the staff any more. What happens? A couple of years later the amount of routines has increased and I see more stock control staff around. However, they're inexperienced, part-time and many don't really care if things get counted properly or not.

Bakery: Again, let's p**s hundred's of thousands of pounds up the wall to get rid of experienced bakers on the pretence of reducing the range and getting more stuff in pre-made etc. What happens? Yes, you've guessed it. A year on and I see no reduction in range and they've recruited more bakers to replace the ones who they got rid of.

I bet the absolute geniuses who dream these schemes up are still in a job and laughing all the way to the bank. This is Tesco.

Well, yes. Quite. The people who make 6 figures and above salaries wouldn't keep raking in the huge wages and bonuses if they turned round and said,

"Look, everything is working about as well as we can hope for. At the moment, it ain't broke so there's no point trying to fix it".

To justify their cushy billets, they have to keep, "improving" things. So they will come up with ideas that, at best, won't make the business any more efficient and at worst actually damages productivity. And the best part(from their perspective)is they will then be paid to fix the problems they caused in the first place! >:(

Anyone who believes crime doesn't pay hasn't worked at Tesco Head Office.

Obviously not enough of them were made redundant. Because head office is still coming up with brilliant ideas like the new paper bags for Produce, which tear as soon as you put more than a couple of carrots in them. 8-)

Haven't heard anything (as yet) in our store, but that doesn't surprise me.

Fined massively for Out of Code stock so let's take the axe to the very teams who date scan etc.

Someone's got to pay for the latest appointment and it sure won't be those at the top  ???.

We keep getting told there is no OT for stock control but no-ones mentioned about losing hours. I'm curious how many hours you've got allocated to Stock Control and how many people that is spread over to be required for people to move department.

For people 8/14 day date scanning and next day potential reductions we've got 90 hours spread over 5 people, and a further 83 hours spread over 3 other people for counts/gap scans/transfers and other routines not related to date scanning and reductions.

Sorry if this is the wrong feed! But does anyone know what’s happening to the store managers that are in metros, now that they’re getting turned into expresses? Will they restructure to express format? And get rid of the one team manager they have? And make the work level 3 store manager a site manager??

A couple of years ago it was decided that roles in lower turnover metros would be moved to WL2 anyway so those jobs should be replaced by WL2 when the existing managers move on.

The busier metros, I presume would remain WL3 as the turnover requires it. In these stores I expect just to rebrand to express or move to large but keep the WL3 manager in either case.

I am surprised that this topic in part looks at the detail of the potential changes and not the big picture. Metro stores were the test bed for reducing the number of Team Managers and introduction of shift leaders. They also were first to lose in store PM's and I think the move to filling stores on early and late with loss of nightshift.
Now we have Superstores that fill fresh from 5am and fill grocery till midnight they now have shift leaders and less Team Managers and less Lead Managers. So the question is have Superstores become Metros - I think the answer is yes. So some Metros moving to Superstores is no change. Metros going to Express format is completely different (ran much more like a discounter) if it is successful then small Superstores (you could call them Metros) could go same way.

For Metros to be Metros and not superstores in the first place, the sales of the store had to be taken into account, the demotion/promotion of Metro stores to Express or Superstore without any other changes will result in the highest taking convenience stores in the group or the lowest taking superstores. Though as before they had a somewhat light version of superstore structure, it can't be replicated in Superstore because of increased sales and typically larger shop floor space.

There are other factors as well such as Metros typically being in city centres, but it is rightly viewed as to not take as much money as superstore and being less busy.

I’ve been told today that there will be communication sent to the store managers regarding team support in superstores on Monday
