5am starts you are expected to drag out pallets manually with a pump truck that weigh over 200-300kg. While there is an electric pump truck at hand, only management are allowed to use it due to "insurance" purposes. It takes around 45mins for 1 person to finish a large pallete. Management expect it done in 20 mins.
Working around 12 palletes, then you made to drag out the bulks, again manually. Dragging out water pallets and fizzy pop.
Management are oblivious how to do their job. Ordering stock thats not needed. Maxing out stock on shelves then ordering more for it to sit in the warehoue by not going out, creating extra work for the person working stock.
It is your duty to know about the store figures, from sales to financial loss. The departments that incurred the loss, how much loss occured.
You have to know PLU numbers while working on tills (price lookup codes) the short codes for bakery items, fruit and veg without barcodes. If you dont know them, managenent come down real hard on you. You get spot tests every week. There is also trolley tests, a week before the mystery shopper is to arrive.
You dont get your breaks on time, you get breaks often 30 mins before you finish. Which takes the micky on a 7 hour shift.
Do you yourselves a favour, dont work for £8.75 an hour. Only after a year service it will go to £9.45. By then they expect you to take the world on your shoulders.
Work doesnt live up to the extra £1 per hour.
