In January every year there is a focus on store's allowed hours. Could well be that as your store is over contracted (ie more hours are being used than are "needed") all recruitment has been stopped.

Tesco's end of financial year is at the end of February, recruitment is usually slow until after that period to make their profit statement look better than it is.

Oh, another round of RHRP in their sights! Depts told they are “ over hours”, and the few depts under hours are either by only a few, which doesn’t equate to a contract, so stays as overtime, until all overtime cancelled, or have more than the now allowed low part time hours for a new contract for one person, so part is used as new contract, and the remainder is overtime ??? ???

They mainly now offer 3.75 shifts, all on flexi, no breaks needed, then wonder why the workers lack enthusiasm ??? No one knows each other from different depts, people clock in, go to their dept, clock out and go home!

The only ones who mainly use the canteen, are the full time managers  :-X

Exactly this, and then the company makes a big performance of doing meetings and surveys to find out why so many on said contracts quit, one of the biggest mistakes the company ever made was to stop taking on CA (GA) on full time contracts or even the old part time 16 hour contracts, instead its tiny contracts and people quickly move on to something better and who can blame them, in the last few years I worked for them it was a case of new people came, had no real training, given a few hours per week with the promise of overtime and more core hours to come, apart from during the first lockdown neither ever really happened and then as soon as said new people could find something better they left and more newbies arrived and so the cycle began again.

Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

Correct me if I’am wrong but I think there are a couple of Extra trial stores out there that have given up GM space for bulk pallets of grocery stuff.

If any changes are coming to the structure in Express formats then unless it's replacing SMs with cluster managers, they can only add roles to the structure, they can't make it more streamlined than it is.

All DVD's, Blu-rays and games are going to be discontinued in March, I was told by an oakwood rep today.  I believe Sainsbury's stopped selling them last year.

Do we need SM, Lead manager, TM, Shift Leader and GAs or could we just have an Area manager with power to dismiss, a few working shift leaders to work alongside the GA.

I strongly question why we need lead team anymore and with the introduction of shift leaders feel the number of team managers could be substantially cut. If you look at the structure on a Sunday then compare it to a standard weekday - why does  the week day require double/treble etc the Sunday Management headcount?
