    I was told the cut off point was the 20th so that's likely why, though it's always worth explaining to your manager

    I've been told the Thursday before pay day is the cut off point , so that's probably why
    But if you're unsure just go see wages

    Uniform is blue trousers and a shirt/polo (blue or red). We got told to wear black trousers , shoes , and a smart black or white shirt/t shirt. You can also wear a black cardigan ,as it gets cold down the frozen aisle! Ha

    The student transfer service is a joke, it took them two months to sort me out so by that point I had been at uni for a month and a half. You will get an email of the store itself inviting you in.

    No I haven't heard anything, the closing date is the 4th so I'm hoping we'll hear around then

    Hi, I have a question regarding old colleague priority then new colleague . I m working in tesco super store from 2011 & in my department there was 4 vacancies open then I talk with my manager if he can give sun mon & tues with my same hours contract ? Cause I m working tue till Friday & these days are clashing with my husband hours always & I m flexible on that days if u can adjust before u give anybody. Then he said ok I will speak with my boss from that day till 2 months I was keep asking about my days if he sort it out he was just keep saying yeah possibly u will get then he said in the last few weeks might be u will start 1week in sep . When I asked him in sep he said sorry I can't give u Sunday but I can drop fri to mon so u can work mob till thurs . I said what is the difference between my recent hours then if I will get mon till thurs cause I m doing tue till Friday ? He said I can't do it I already got enough staff on Sunday now & let me know if u r interested in mon till Thursday shifts ASAP . I think old colleague have more priority then new people ? Even I told him 2 months ago after that he gave sun shifts to new people !

    Which Superstore do you work at, and is it nights or day work? Your post is quite incoherent, which leads me to believe that perhaps English isn't your first language; if you didn't sufficiently relay your issues to your manager, and instead expressed it in a way that is similar to your post here, well...

    Take a moment, explain your situation a bit more - get your most important points across as clear as you can. I gather that you work at a Superstore, and have worked there as such since 2011. Equally, that two months ago you asked your manager for a shift change, at that time four vacancies were open - assuming you asked for a shift change because of the vacancies, when were the vacancies filled? And if they have been filled, not much you can do other than work with your manager to get whatever hours you can - I don't believe Tesco is under any obligation to change your shift just because you want it changed, so take what you can get, really.
