Currently dotcom driver on more hourly rate so how does that work if you have to be trained in all areas? Picker team support and checkout team support on the same hourly rate currently. Will all hourly rate change to be the same?

Checkout Team Support is not gone
Role chnage to look.after PFS / CSD / Trollies
Hrs.allowed for Checkout Team Support is store specific.
Thats all I was told

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)

Team support are going. They will become ordinary colleagues and get some sort of payment protection or lump sum.

Manager structure will change completely.
All will become team managers. Each will be accountable for an area of the store.
This is thought to be changing every year, so one year might be accountable for checkouts and PI, next year could be responsible for all the replen activitys.
No redundancys being offered at this stage but could be subject to further review down the line.
Amount of managers will be depending on store head count. Not sure on what the headcount will be for each manager but it’s thought to be split equally between all managers.
This will hopefully cut out the poor managers that the business carries and leave only the ones who are actually capable of delivering their roles in the right way. No more being a produce manager for 20yrs on 30k with only 7 colleagues

Team support isn’t going. It’s store specific. Checkout team support are going to be called service team leaders and will look after trollies/csd/pfs and checkouts. Dotcom team support are fulfilment team leaders and look after the driver and picking side of dotcom.

Will be reduced / inceeased as per store structure

Apologies, team support seems to be store/ region specific?

Team support in my local areas are going. A physical colleague will still be doing the off till activities but without the payment or all of the responsibilities of a current team support. This is from from 5 medium size superstores.

As for reducing the amount of managers in stores without redundancy this will be through retirement, not replacing leavers, moving managers to stores that are short (obv this will have to suit both parties, closer to manager home for example)

There’s a lot of conflicting information on here. Can  anyone that has actually attended the briefing today confirm whether dotcom team leaders are staying or whether they are being mixed in with checkout team leaders and all doing same role?

My understanding is Dot Com Team Support become Customer Fulfillment Team Supports. No involvement in checkouts.

Dotcom team support will be staying just changing title.
Might be a few changes in what is expected of them, not sure on the detail as I don’t deal with dotcom stores.

Shift leaders will be introduced, are people mixing this up with the current team support role perhaps?

We have a management team with the closest manager 10 years away from retirement. No one will leave any time soon based on how the world is with Covid. So.unless shops nearby are all massively under manned which I doubt given they still have not managed to deal with stock manager positions I just dont see how they minimise head count any time soon. time will tell.

Well that sounds very Ill conceived and thought out, and cannot see that being a disaster   at all.

Basically driver team support role goes and new role loses the driving skill payment (85p odd ph). Also stream lining number of team supports. We go from 4 to 2. In effect the driver TS are gone and you left with just 2 picking team supports with a name change and some driver responsibilities.

I agree, surely checkout team support becoming checkout, customer service, trolleys and petrol filling station service team leader is an entirely different role.

How does that work when the driver team support does a lot of driving?
