Quote from: NavyNinja on 23-09-20, 01:06PMTwo of my friends in my store were told yesterday that the SM wants to start them up on the Options journey. They have a meeting about it on Friday. This is something I think I'd be interested in in future. Any advice on what the whole process involves and what you get out of it along the way please?

The word is that being willing to relocate may be key to being put on options now.Yes, but that's always been the case, the strategy of becoming less top heavy by devolving responsibilities of management roles and having more feet on the floor occupied by the likes of shift leader positions means there's fewer management positions and more people competing for what little there will be.Add to this, there's the psychological aspect, this strategy is being seen across competitors, more often than not, back in better times Retail managers jumped ship to competitors for a higher salary or a more senior position, but with the likes of Asda and Sainsburys cutting down the head count of their manager positions, it has led to somewhat of a bullish market, current Retail managers everywhere are holding on to their jobs in the face of decreased opportunities elsewhere, this means that not only are there less positions to go around, but staff turnover for these now valuable management positions have plummeted due to economic uncertainty.
Quote from: penguin on 09-05-21, 03:01PMSamcro sums the situation up perfectly, one of the reasons I left last year was lack of progression chances, when my line manager talked with me about why I was going he said himself he is looking for something else as he has been told off the record he is to old to move on now as the company want younger managers, he is 36 by the way. He also left after Christmas to train up as an SM for Sainsburys local and has recently moved into his own store. I hope he does well as to be fair he was one of the better managers I had at Tesco and to be honest deserved a chance to move upwards.
