    Got the ball rolling transfer wise. The girl in HR said to check back next Saturday to see if they had managed to sort anything. If they can, great. If they can't, great [cause then I can quit lol].

    Not had a bad day, just a hectic one. Got called off my break twice, after working 6 hours before getting it. The supervisor who called me back did apologise but it is still a bit annoying. Plus, I ended up working an extra 20 minutes after my shift because we were busy. It kinda bugs me that such 'overtime' is unpaid although I can understand why... Still, home now. Time to chill.
    I get paid for any time I go over my shift (Up to 15 minutes)?

    Tell your manager you worked an extra 20 minutes and basically say "I want to be paid or i'm going to be late by 20 minutes on my next shift".

    Plus side - store closed Easter Sunday when i work, so day off!
    Bad side - less money
    Look at the document above your clocking in machines. You do not have to work on that Sunday, and you will still get paid. It will appear on your pay slip as "Authorised Paid Absence".

    You just won't get the Bank Hol Premium

    So I filled in my holiday form and handed it to my department manager who as far as I know, just left it behind the counters and hasn't done anything. Now that he has left, I have to get a new form, fill it out and hand it to the fresh department manager. I'm probably not going to get the days off in May that I wanted now Argh!

    Do you just pick up a new holiday form from HR?
    we have a bit of paper to sign if we want it then they live it in the holiday forms box. or just go to your dept manager and say you want to book a holiday, can you do it now (cos they have to book it in)

    Easter Sunday is the only day you don't need to take off as holiday to get paid

    Oh dear. They are at it again with calling to change my shifts.

    They want me to do a day shift on the royal wedding day. Not a bad request in itself, except from the fact I have the Thursday night before and the Saturday after off - those are the only two shifts I've been able to book off since Christmas. There is no way I am going in on the day inbetween - crazy suggestion lol!

    Oh nice!
    Do you reckon you could be any problem with my wages on Thursday as for two of my shifts they asked me to come in from 8-2, instead of 12-6?

    I'd be surprised, since it's automated, but a few people have said we do, so who knows! It would be nice

    I Got my IPM from about 18 to avg of 22 each week now with a few things
    - if during a transaction you have to stop scanning press quantity
    - if there is ever a gap between serving people sign out , quantity only slows IPM.
    - if your store still has a conveyor belt in the packing area keep it on all the time unless someone asks you to switch it off
    - Learn PLU codes- I can pretty much do any common fruit/veg without going through the slow menu system.

    Hope this helps! Tbh tho, loads of people in my store have ipms of like 15 and no one cares

    Really pressing quantity works? I tried pressing it but it just came up with an error message.

    The c/o manager has changed at my store and has said I need to get my IPM up in the next two weeks. Im genuinely worried that they are going to get rid of me because of it due to what she was saying. I've not even been self scan trained yet when the others who started only a little bit before me have been.
