    My last day tomorrow before transfer! Wooooo! :woo:

    Had a weird request from a customer the other day. She asked me to work out how many packets of everything she would need to feed 30 people twice. Then she asked me to work out approximately how much her trolley would come to. :o: I always knew someday my C grade GCSE maths would come in handy :p:
    I would have told her to fook off. That's well beyond the request of a mystery shopper. They aren't allowed to ask arithmatic questions, as it is pretty obvious that a lot of people aren't good at maths.

    Seems like you just had a customer who wanted to try and take the piece out of you! :rolleyes:

    PLU CODES

    Does stuff in Weighed Veg have PLU codes? It would be nice to just do 9181 (e.g) for Brocoli, rather than Plu>Weighed Veg>4>enter all the time (or favourites>4).

    You can find out the code by doing PRICE QUERY > Weigh Veg as Normal (as if you were selling, go via PLU menu etc) > POP-UP Screen > Note PLU code at top.

    I would have escorted her to GM and pointed out the calculators for sale! She sounds like a stupid ******* ***** to me! Down with her!

    Hi guys from this month's pay slip on the 10th I got paid for 36 hours work and 77 hours of overtime which to my knowlege is correct. This was my second month of working (this pay slip covers 3 weeks work), and I am not working there again until Xmas. However I also got paid for an additional 6 hours of 'holiday lieu pay' which added another £36.42 to the payslip. I thought that because I am not a permanent employee that I didn't get any holidays? Why did I get this extra money?

    If it says in your contract you must work xyz hours, then they must have to give you holiday?

    I'm no expert, but I assumed everyone got some holiday.

    Hey guys

    I was just wondering how long after your induction did you start work properly? Is it the same week or the week after? I've got something happening on the Friday & Saturday nights after my induction (Tues&Wed) and was wondering if it would clash? I'm supposed to work Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays if that would make any difference.

    I can still work on those days, I'd just rather not as it would involve getting up very early on the Saturday to make it to work on time, and then I'd have to get the train back to my event after work and would probably be extremely tired. I can't wait to start earning money again though, I've been out of a job since the beginning of August and my student loan isn't stretching as far as I thought it would. I'll be working in the bakery too, so that's something new to look forward to even though I've heard it's quite hard work.

    You start the same week or whatever, because your employment technically starts on the first day of your induction. So yep, you're working Fri&Sat. :tongue:
