Quote from: Nomad on 25-05-22, 02:17PMBe honest, have you suffered unfair treatment from a manager ?Not treated the same as others, been 'picked on', expected to do more than others or had treatment which you knew they knew was out of process but they persisted !
Quote from: lucgeo on 26-05-22, 06:32AMI would go as far as to state it has become a lot worse over the years, and a significant increase from senior team!Lack of training full stop!! A lot of team managers don't know what their own policies are, and wing it most of the time! The majority of senior team are oldies on good contracts, just biding their time to a good retirement plan! The new initiatives have passed over their heads, and they aren't interested in learning either, God forbid any young whipper snapper join the senior team and showing them up for their ignorance!!The personnel managers used to keep them all in check, but when the cull came, the good ones left in their droves, and the ones that remained, well, they knew they were rubbish, and wouldn't earn that salary aanywhere else as they weren't related to the big bosses!!
Quote from: Redshoes on 01-06-22, 09:49AMI had a colleague rant and rave about a manager yesterday. They were on rota for a certain time but had not turned up. They were angry because this meant manager was pleasing themselves about what shift they were doing. Turns out the manager had been asked to change shift due to an issue in managers rota. Some colleagues seem to think they run the store but these colleagues also tend to think that they work in the only dept that matters. They think they are the hardest workers in the store but expect support on a daily basis.
Quote from: lucgeo on 01-06-22, 09:59AMI'm always intrigued when colleagues complain about managers going out for ciggie breaks?? If they're out there, you know where they are if needed, and they're not hassling you!! When they're hiding in the offices, or wherever else their hidey holes are, you've little chance of finding them in a hurry!With regard to being spoken down to by a manager, you just raise your hand, state that you refuse to be spoken to in a tone which is against Tesco core values, and walk away! Trust me, they will not know what to say Every colleague has "a right to a voice" and by walking away you are demonstrating your wish to remove yourself from the situation, diminishing the risk of further confrontation, ( especially if it is in a public area) as you were becoming " emotionally flooded" The more you recite their own Tesco phrases and core values in your defence, the more they'll " treat others as you would wish to be treated"! Just on an aside here...are the core values still displayed prominently in your store??

They think they are the hardest workers in the store but expect support on a daily basis.Is it not the duty of the dept manager to inform their team of a change in their shift, by updating the dept rota Whereas the colleague was incorrect in their assumption that the manager was turning up when they pleased, and in voicing that opinion, surely a simple update would have dispelled the frustration! Every dept is supposed to be run on communication, hence the use of communication books...or are these no longer in use?? It could just have been that an agreement had been arranged between the manager and colleague for a specific task or update during that shift, and they had been wasting time on preparation or putting time aside for agreed time etc..etc...The only department's that "expect" support on a daily basis is fresh and checkouts and both get it in abundance!!
Quote from: NightAndDay on 02-06-22, 11:40PMAll of these legal fines and compensations are punitive to Tesco however, they can lose these amounts every day for a year and it wouldn't equate to their legal budget I hate Tesco and the government more than anyone, the way to hurt Tesco, and I mean destroy it from within is to do what I do and buy shares in the company every 3 months when the share price is lower in comparison, eventually you'll become a majority share holder and influence the decision making process.
