Hi there, I'm in need of some advice.

I've recently started working at Tesco, at a Customer Fulfillment Centre as a picker under a Full Time Flexi Contract.

In my contract, I have been assigned the core hours of 3.75hrs per day, week days, and have had my weekly earnings calculated and shown in the contract. My contract also states that I may need to work an additional 3.75hrs each day should the need occur, something I'm completely fine with.

My issue is that for these last 2 months I've been here, every single day (except one), we've been sent home early due to completing the pick for the orders and having no more work to do. This is often after 2.5-3hrs each day, which is less than my core contracted hours.

This has resulted in me being paid roughly 20% less than what my core hours/contract pay says I should be being paid.

Tesco prides itself on having no zero hour contracts, but surely this is a zero hour contract, as I'm not being paid the amount my contract says I should, and I am now never sure what my minimum pay will be.

Does any of this sound wrong? What should I do?

Can’t you look for overtime on other departments? Rumbling or something...

I’m not sure if you’ve checked, but I posted this a year ago. There was nothing I could do to extend my hours to fit what I signed up. I was hired at a much better job after a few months.

I started working as a picker last week and its hard work I cant lie. Its basically like a big supermarket with products and you get a machine to scan the items to put it in the tray. You get multiple trays going round a conveyor belt thing so you are constantly scanning items to put in the tray and going round to multiple aisle based on where the machine you have whats you to go. Its pretty straight forward but very tedious. the job isnt horrendous but I think its the 2am starts that kills me. hope thats helps a little

Personally I prefer dot com than anywhere else, I find doing other work really boring. As above mentioned you basically go round scanning products on your device and putting them in the trays on your trolley, not much else to it, but it’s decent.

Yeah, I agree - it may sound bad but since I work at CFC I don't have to deal with customers so it's very chill! So far I haven't really had any problems - the only thing I hate is the pick rate, our target is 250😂
