Hello
Has any one heard of any reason line managers have been frozen in the company.
No movements ,role changes, appointments.

Is any one aware of a pilot / trial currently underway with line manager / manager structure

Many thanks

Yes I heard this is well a newly signed off lead cannot go anywhere was asked to either stay doing what he's doing or return as a line manager.

They maybe looking at removing some roles.

Week 22 is the date being thrown around for the line manager structure changes. Lots of rumours and theories, but this one seems really under wraps. But not long to go now. (fingers crossed!)

No doubt being kept to as few people as possible given the farce around the counter changes ending up all over the media before anyone was informed.

The lidl/aldi structure should of been DL's first move to sort out the wasted money in salaries.
I suppose he used managers to do the dirty work of getting rid of team leaders, nights and most full time contracts. It was only a matter of time before management numbers would be culled.

If there are management cuts while it will be bad for the people involved, I for one can not wait to throw back all the b's that was said to us during the last restructure.

Tesco needs to get rid of senior management, it should be front line managers, store manager and a deputy store manager with a floating HR team across a few stores.

I have never seen a company with so many managers who are not needed, and don't even get me started on the meetings, after meetings, after meetings, a store handover sheet filled in between shifts and a quick 5 minute catch up is all that's needed with maybe a weekly meeting on larger issues.

M360 got sacked  :D ;)
So most of us agree that most managers are pretty useless, overpaid chimps?
Come on Dave sort out these so called managers and they'll be forced to find a proper job where pay isn't great and they'll go home tired afters a days graft and their facebook feed will be empty as they haven't had the chance to scroll through it all day.

My store manager agrees that there are far too many managers in our store with not much to do other than manage a team of 2 or 3 ga's. Once upon a time the teams were much bigger but since all the cuts, lots of managers are being paid lots of money to manage 2 people.

With the NLW rising at 4-5% p.a and little scope to raise prices or make further cuts to premiums, I'd be seriously concerned if were a manager these days.

What sort of store  or department has 1 manager with 2 or 3 ga's?

Produce or PhoneShop.
Now if the company wants to get rid of managers then those two departments can either be easily combined with others or have satellite ones covering multiple stores.

The night TMs have to be scrapped they can rarely be found on the shop floor and when they do there basic office admin tasks they are constantly screwing up eg Not putting holidays through, holidays on wrong dates, too many/too little holidays. They should cctv record the full store and let the sm watch it he would see a few surprises. All the ones who he thinks are great do a nothing.
