Honestly who cares if it's a success or not! I'll still be over worked and under paid.
Tesco is a byword for corporate greed.
Not a brown noser or anyone's relative so I'll never get anywhere here regardless of how hard I work.
Tesco are a nasty corporation making workers lives increasingly miserable in their cost cutting pursuit of profits. They are amongst the dregs of Britain's employers.

Yes why should you care if it works or not  :( after all it seems you dont worry about anyone losing jobs do you ? or the fact that they could end up making money that the likes of aldi and lidl just bank in what ever country they come from with out any need to pay tax on it ,
Last time I had a look every company  is a byword for corporate greed  8-) they are not being run to look after the workers they are made for the share holders ,  and you dont need to be a brown nose or a relation to someone to get on  , Just the ability to do the job which some just do not have :-X , hence the need to s**g off all those hard workers that have and did get on ,

Doubt tupee will  be involved.  We were offered redundancy, chance to apply to other Tesco stores, or if we applied to the new format we would retain length of service and that's it.  New t and c's and any redundancy would be lost for good.

If you retain length of service then if Jacks does not work out then you would still be able to get it , Thats my understanding , I would think that those that have stayed are the ones that have only been around a few years so will not get a large pay out ?

Did they say if you would be able to move across later if you changed your mind ?  and what about pay rate, night rates if any sunday , and discount cards ?

Length of service, if protected, guarantees that any later redundancy will be at least based on statutory entitlement for the entire length of service. Statutory or Jack's contractual limits, but not any enhanced limit currently offered by Tesco

Then p*ss or get off the pot! Work outside of retail as very few will ever get rich in this business nowadays

Do you even understand what pressures ALL retailers are up against? 'Companies need to make a profit' shock....that 'corporate greed' and pursuit of profit is the difference between going to the wall or surviving. How much turnover does any retailer need to generate to even earn a profit? To maintain shareholder interest? To be able to maintain equipment? To invest in the future in an increasingly diverse market? The profit is barely enough to cover minimum wage increases so any pressure on the business as a whole will always hit staff hardest as that is the single biggest cost. I am no apologist for some of the company's decisions, nor do I agree with a lot of the way the business is run, but let's not pretend that they are any worse than any other retailer, especially grocers - there are a fair few that are a lot worse

Not all employees at metro's have been informed they are rebranding.

I work in one of the tabloid named stores earmarked to be closed/rebranded, we only know what we've read in the papers.

According to the articles 30 metro's will be closing for good, I've spoken to a couple of people that were affected by closures of stores already. Their options were redundancy, move to another store (on less hours/worse shift patterns etc) or re apply to work at J's

Working tins and pasta in a superstore.is not easy. Lots of employees are disgruntled. Many  Sunday workers are earning less now than they were in June. I will still be earning less in November than I was in June. My lack of interest in the success of Jack's stems from the fact that I know very little benefit will filter down to shop floor workers should Tesco increase their profits. Senior management bonuses get more generous every year whilst our bonus scheme is the same as last year. I believe if all targets are exceeded Mr Lewis will receive a bonus worth 6x his salary. I am making efforts to get out of Tesco. I'm in the final year of my studies. I do think that management - senior grade and up are overpaid and this is part of the reason why GA's get so little. I have socialist principles and I won't change those. I just don't find Tesco a good company. Even as a customer I've experienced some pretty awful customer service from them. Just don't feel invested in the success of this company. I am good at my job though and with the kind of staff turnover we have these days - mainly as a result of poor pay and short hour contracts I think people in my store are happy to have me around. I'm not a doormat or a sheep though and if I think something isn't right I will say something.

All we were told was what I said previously.  Length of service would remain but redundancy would go.  To all of us it meant we had one chance of that money.  Hence so many taking it.  Most were tupeed over from somerfield so if it had been put like that we might of thought again but it was put to us as a last chance deal.  Which is probably what they wanted

I don't blame any of you that decided to take the money if it worked out well for you,

Seems they have once again failed to give Everyone effected information they should have

Hope all works out for you ,

Of course I understand that Tesco's profit margins are tight and that margins in retail in general are tight. I believe Tesco's operating profit margin was 2.2% year ending April 2018. I know that the aim is to get operating profit margin up to 3.5 to 4%. Isn't this alarming to anyone? Many of us are already having to work harder for pretty poor pay. Staffing levels are significantly lower on the department in which I work than they were a couple of years ago. Of course I worry that people may lose their jobs but I would question 'how many of these jobs are good jobs that pay a wage that is sufficient to live on and guarantees people enough hours to meet their obligations and have some standard of living. I resent the implication that I am not 'good enough' to get on. I have has multiple blue reviews. I just have never pressed hard enough to get on. I do have some pride. Genuinely their is a lot of nepotism at the store in which I work. There are also busybody senior managers who are suckers for a personal interest story. Too much money goes to the top of the pyramid and not enough goes to the many. I'm aware of my insignificance, nothing that I do influences whether Tesco is successful or not - honestly don't care if Tesco is successful because it's pretty clear that what they give their shopfloor workers wil be pretty near as little as they can legally and ethically get away with. Honestly I can't get by on what they are paying me. I don't live an extravagant lifestyle, but prices of a lot of things are really going up - especially fuel. I do intend to leave, I'm in the final year of my studies.

One thing I would point out is that I have never said that anyone should get out if they are not happy. People do not always have great choice in where they work. They don't have to agree with the actions of their employer. I think telling someone to get out is pretty much 'bullying' and pretty nasty. Shouldn't we be able to agree to disagree because you may not like me but I may very well not like you. Despite what you may think I am not an unpopular staff member. I have bigger fish to fry. I should be concentrating on my studies not this nonsense. I wish every budding capitalist on this website the best of luck because life is too short.

Is it true that you dont get a discount card and any bonus ,?

Is this before or after you saw the layout, seriously makes aldi and lidl look like waitrose. Seriously, going downmarket is not competing just looks desperate.
