Hello,

I'm going by what's shown on my new Work & Pay slip but will assume it's the same for non Work & Pay Colleagues:

Contracted hours are from 18th October to 14th November
Absences from 18th October to 14th November which have been authorised on or before 10th November
And any overtime, temporary adjustments or unplanned absences from the 11th October to 7th November.

My understanding now is that we got paid yesterday and cut off was the Saturday before the Friday pay date? (Prev it was the Thursday before payday) then any contracted shifts we have in between Saturday cut off date and today was paid yesterday, and any over time that was done will be in next months pay? So if today is my contracted shift and today’s shift has been included in yesterday’s pay, say if I was off sick today, I will have been paid for the shift (yesterday) but next months pay it will be adjusted and the pay changed to sick pay or whatever method is to be used? Very confusing saying the pay period includes not only days after the cut off date but the day after pay day! 😂 Classic Tesco! I have raised questions with managers today and no one understands this new system and I’m told it will work itself out and in the mean time I’m supposed to be happy with being underpaid 🙃

With Work & Pay you are paid until the first Saturday after pay day i.e. today.

If you happened to phone in sick they'd code it on the system and you'd seen an adjustment in next month's pay (December 11th).

The Tesco week runs Sunday to Saturday which is why they've gone along with the same on Work & Pay I'd imagine.

Yes, it's a new system, and it's going to take some time getting used to it after HRAM2 but so long as the right people ( :D) do what they are meant to e.g. request overtime, allocate overtime, put absences in the tablet etc then it won't result in us mere mortals being expected to being happy with underpayments  ???

Colleagues have always been paid basic pay up to and including the day/Saturday after pay day.

New starters get £8.72 per hour which increases to £9.30 after 3 months.

Doesn't matter what type of store, just location, as long as it's not a subsidiary company (So not a Jacks, One Stop or Booker chain) they'll either get the home counties rate or the inner M25 rate.

All colleagues whether permanent or temporary qualify for a staff discount card after 3 months service. Why should a temporary colleague be treated differently?

Could someone tell me how overtime pay works? I have read posts where people say that it is paid the next month?

I am just slightly concerned as I am a temp worker and have done a lot of overtime over the last two weeks. This week I will be doing 40 hours.

My manager asks me often at the last minute and I am worried it will not be in the system. I do of course sign in and sign out but I am not sure if this is enough. As they do literally ask me the day before, so surely that would not be in the system?

How does this work? And when will I be paid the overtime?

Overtime and contracted hours are paid in the same pay period, if it's on the cut off it will be in your upcoming payslip.

Hi, I’ve been here now 3 months and it falls part way through the 4 week pay period would my rate of pay just automatically increase?? I don’t need to go through anything formal?

You don't need to do anything. Established pay is changed automatically.

Don't make the assumption that all your pay should be at the new rate though. It will only apply from the exact date of the change.

Guidance, if you don't already, you & everybody else are advised to keep a record of your hours worked, perhaps in a small notebook.

Indeed Nomad, not just within Tesco but advice I was given when first entering the workforce many years ago was to keep a record of the hours and overtime you do, comes in useful in the event of a query or dispute.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.
