Anyone heard what they are doing at Morrison’s ? Axing 3,000 managers and either making them redundant or having them step down to become shelf stackers ? They need to do this at Tesco but with ALL managers. All useless.

Long gone, not all managers are useless. Some of us do care and we are still human beings and make errors. The attitude that managers are useless will turn around and bite some of your backsides like you wouldn’t believe. I’d love to see some departments run smoothly without someone behind slow, lazy waste of space staff cracking the whip. While I agree there are some useless managers (I’ve met many in my time at Tesco) to label everyone the same is incredibly stupid.

Sadly it seems to be long gones hobby to come on here and s**g off all managers at any given chance, rather a sad thing to spend your free time doing really.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

Agree with Penguin. Long gone has probably left the company, if you go by the name,but is sad enough to continually pop up calling all managers names. Assume he rates this on how fast the can work a cage, funny thing is that's not even in the job description.
As for Morrison, it seems that we are all the same. What one does the others follow. Retail is a tough environment now. Those that hope to finish with us should have a plan to work in another field. It's same thing but different company, even Lidl and Aldi. I have known several people try it with them but they doing last.
The reply to this will be someone who has moved on, now earns twice the money for less work but continues to follow what goes on. If I left I would do just that, draw a line and move on. Life is too short and I can think of lots of better things to do with my time.

Devil is always in the detail, from what I’ve been told they are losing there annual bonus to fund it, and rumours are some other benefits too.

But Tesco also has no bonus and still pays less.

Terms and conditions are changing with pay rise, in some retailers.

It's always been the case recently, but in terms of staff benefits and compensation across Retailers as a whole, with the exception of M&S and Waitrose, there isn't much left they can take away from what's offered to ca's etc, all except Tesco I believe don't have some sort of premium for sunday working while Tesco doesn't have a bonus scheme in place for their non-managerial roles.

Morrisons will have neither (except Bank holiday premium, that will stay I believe everywhere) but will offer £10 an hour, which in the grand scheme of things is an improvement overall (if not much of one) Tesco et al will no doubt follow suit, I wouldn't be surprised if Tesco does away with Sunday Premium as part of the increase to something along the lines of a £10 per hour ca wage increase.

Morrisons has reportedly lined up the former Tesco chief executive Sir Terry Leahy as its next chairman, as the supermarket’s takeover war continues.

Leahy is in pole position to fill the role due to his retail nous and previous track record at discounter B&M, The Telegraph reported.
