Will Tesco follow Asda.....
« on: 25-02-21, 11:55AM »
With news today of a mass of backroom and management job losses in Asda, do you think Tesco will be following developments closely?

No. They won't be copying Asda, they'll have years of cuts planned in advance.

Just like your Christmas Tree, Tesco keep their next structure changes in the attic.
Once your neighbours put their tree up, everyone will follow.
Im sure once they can find someone to bring the box down from the attic, we will see swift changes.

How many stores will not be having staff on main bank tills before Eight am and After Ten pm ? using self serve tills only before eight am and after ten pm meaning job hours moved around the business / lost , How many stores are going to card payment only on some of the main bank tills ? , again meaning a reduction in someone hours as that someone will have less till checks to do and less change runs to do . Then there is the reduction in cash office hours as there is no cash to handle from the card only tills etc , then there is the changing rooms on clothing that are not being used at  the moment due to Corona virus , this will become the norm again job hours moved around he business / lost due to not having to staff the changing rooms . Little tweaks here and there to save an hour or two ? , all cost saving measures . On a different note one of the One Stop branches i know of  even moved there opening times from six am in a morning till seven am in a morning - cost saving in every corner of the business including the subsidary's . Never trust Tosco for anything and never think your jobs safe if they can stab you in the back to save a few quid they will regardless of how loyal you are .

A cull of senior store management would be good. Get big salaries for doing very little apart from filling shelves and criticising staff for things they cant even do themselves.

Didn't even know there was a briefing? Anyone with any knowledge of anything? Is it just your store or is it a roll out briefing to all store managers like when they announced counters/bakery situation?

Are team leaders usually asked to pay review meetings?

Haven’t been given exact details for our store but management change and team support change managers not in charge off specific areas = less managers team support to look after PFs desks trolleys as well as checkouts

Basically want to start implementing what they did with metros that caused utter chaos. Couple of managers running the store in the morning and same in the evening and having team support running specific depts. colleagues working where they are needed, not specifically on any one department. Ridiculous.

It’s a business change - checkout team supports gone, dot com team support role change to fulfilment support. Shop floor split between team managers and shift leaders (same pay as express role and dot com fulfilment role), reduced team managers to make way for the shift leaders (by natural wastage only)

Some checkout team support in my store seem to think it’s store specific,after having a briefing with the store manager earlier,and they are not affected and safe,not sure if they heard wrong,a few of them even come in on their days off unpaid to help out with rota’s and holiday booking,it will be a big shock for a couple of them if their job no longer exists

The difference is between superstores and ‘large’ stores. Superstores are losing the checkout team supports
