Couldn't agree more forrest.

Was told about some SL vacancies in a store within a few miles from where I live (Extra) and I'm wondering how they'll get around someone finishing at midnight at one day only to be expected back five hours later.

Nice to know policies are followed and the health and safety of customers and colleagues is of high priority  :thumbdown:.

If anyone was stupid enough to do that type of shift pattern they need some kind of medical help not only is it illegal it’s also extremely bad for your health

Tesco have got away with it for years in express with the infamous late to early an 11pm or midnight finish then back for half five in the morning, obviously this does not happen every day but for shift leaders it happens more than you might think, and yes it’s totally wrong but what can you do if people put up with such treatment.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

It’s called sticking up for yourself, & you just tell the store manger that you’re not prepared too do & more importantly you won’t. But then, as I did just drop an email to your area manager - sit back & watch the fire works. Tesco policy is you need 11 hours rest period between shifts. Any decent area manager or people partner WILL ensure that this happens

In my experience its not the store manager doing any of this but the line managers who want an easy life, however the stand up for yourself bit is spot on.

I did stick up for myself and refused to do late to earlies, sadly some of those I worked with just went along with it and never said anything, not much you can do when people wont help themselves.

Ultimately most people agree to it to get an early finish the next day. Otherwise they'd be stuck on nothing but back to back late nights to fit in the 11 hour gap between shifts.

I did a stint as a Shift Leader in Express for a short while and did make the mistake (one off!) of finishing late and starting early again the next morning.

I appreciate it happens a lot more than some of us perhaps realise and needless to say I didn't do it again before I left.

Mind you, the then store manager was the kind who'd been heavily overmanned when they were in and as soon as they finished for the day it was 'one on one' and they wondered why some of us got easily annoyed...

Currently a shift leader in express and on options to be a manager in superstore or extra. Is there really any point now? Managers who leave are going to be replaced with shift leaders so there'll be no more managerial vacancies for the foreseeable?

I’ve been waiting to participate in the BS that is development across formats. SL to TM always been one sided. Large stores push colleagues to develop from CA to TM whilst we in express are expected to jump into a completely new operation from Express SL to to TM placements. My placement SM was signed off today after jumping from CA to TM in large. I’ve given up now with stores and applied for the HGV apprenticeship

SL-TM is an an insignificant jump highlighted by the salary difference between the 2 (entry level TMs, not experienced ones).

Most SLs that get promoted get a placement as an Express SM, it's a zig-zag type of jump, SL-TM is about as insignificant a jump as TM-Express SM and Express SM-Lead Manager.
