Quote from: NightAndDay on 21-09-23, 10:06AMVery unlikely to be a corporate restructure on Express, the structure can't really be streamlined anymore than it is, they could bring back Deputy Store Managers and replace sole store managers with Cluster Store Managers (while the arrangement is in place in some stores, dual site store manager is not an official job title in the contract) but there would be minimal cost savings in that. Or introduce dedicated Whoosh delivery drivers, but again, that's not a redundancy situation.More likely to be the case is certain stores closing down and the staff being made redundant due to sales not being high enough.
Quote from: NightAndDay on 30-09-23, 01:18PMThe bar for sales is quite low for Express, general rules of thumb, if your store is taking over £90k a week in sales and has around 30 members of staff on mainly part time contracts the structure is unlikely to change (around 1 member of staff for every £3k in sales), you can broadly apply that formula to Metro turned expresses which should have much higher sales figures
Quote from: Ever ready on 26-10-23, 03:06PMNow that many of the large stores have the volumatic note acceptors installed and up and running do we know what will happen to the cash office? With the removal of the stamp machines, less cash tills and now no pods or minimal pods to process the job seems to be hacked back considerably.

Quote from: fatlad on 31-10-23, 03:39PMOur store had a period of about 4 months without a dotcom manager & the department ran so much better & much more efficiently with just the shift leaders running it. Lots of managers speak down to colleagues which only has the effect of making the colleague be less productive.

How long have we got?? That's not what the coms says. It states its admin colleagues who will not have this access and that during Inductions the new starters must upload all their personal details themselves. It's a continuation of colleague admins losing their people access
