Yes. Especially now that booker has stopped delivering groceries. We have to go over to the main store and transfer things across. But there's little stock in there either so the manager isn't happy to share stock. No support either but always quick to mention our bare shelves.

I hope we do start getting paid more! Over the years the job has just gotten more and more. More processes, more jobs that need doing (with no training on how to do them), whenever it involves something with duty (like checking waste) it's a struggle!

It's been even more of a struggle since being merged with checkouts under management restructure. We see no one unless they want some training done, or a major issue in the pfs with faulty equipment like pumps all going down (as they keep breaking and helpdesk is useless) then getting shouted out why they weren't informed. When we have an issue and need guidance on they don't have the faintest idea what we're going on about. They don't even know what time we open in the morning!!! We literally do everything with little to no thanks or recognition.

Thankfully in regards to shopping we were given 16 hours extra now Bookers only delivers tobacco and tons of adblue. With that, we've been able to keep pretty fully stocked especially as we aren't to plannogramme no more. Store doesn't like it that we take "their stock" but we don't really care. We see it as they want us to keep pfs stocked so we need to take "their stock". Ultimately in the end of the day it's "Tescos stock", we come under the main Store, so as long as it sales, who cares?! to be honest since doing our own shopping, we feel like we're selling more as we rearranged our shelves, have more of a selection in most areas now and more things customers want.

Hi, I’ve heard pfs staff that do not have a pfs manager will go to CSD pay.

hope PFS colleagues are keeping safe at the moment... its been mayhem the last 2 weeks and this is a fully manned pfs so heart goes out to those of you trying to manage this in a single manned site. closing down been a nightmare each time. so much abuse of staff.

Last chance from the fuel companies to hold us all at ransom before electric is the only option.

The whole place has gone to pot in our pfs. No stock no staff and no communication. Absolutely dreadful. Our manager now decides we all have to do 15 mins of weeding a week as well as everything else. She is an absolute joke! My question was " how can 2 members of staff be legally controlling and watching 12 pumps if one is bent over pulling up weeds with a butter knife?" Answer " there's still 2 of you within the pfs boundary" so there you have it! No wonder 4 long term members of staff have jumped ship in the last 2 months, sad but truth is they have been driven out by desperation, they know the job role so well and have more knowledge than any managers but those in charge won't be told!

I'm near enough 100% certain "weeding" isn't an expected duty of a ca. Sounds like this PFS manager needs reading the riot act.
