do they appear on the rosters as Supervisors? if so they're not set up correctly in People Planner to be paid a 2nd rate. I would take this up as supervisors are entitled to grade 3 pay at the adult rate (regardless of age), the only situation in which the pay has to be manually adjusted is if a supervisor only does a supervision shift on sunday (there's some bug in the system that doesnt upload the 2nd rate of pay correctly if the only 2nd rate of pay shift is a sunday shift)
Should that happen in all departments, or just frontend?

I know that in my store, only one Supervisor at any one time gets the Supervision rate... is that normal?
I mean, this is even on Saturday mornings when we have up to 4 or 5 around...

Hey guys, I'm just wondering...are woolies allowed to pay a custom pay rate? The reason I'm asking is because our Dry Goods Manager (+Fresh Foods) is requesting a higher pay rate otherwise he will resign. Would this ever happen ?

They would be stupid to loose him..He know's what he's talking about and he always helps other departments out when they are struggling.

ytrbut: not sure, I imagine it's a generic bug about 2nd rate of pay on sundays, but cant think of any other department where it would be an issue

Mark-AJ: yeah, that would be normal i would have, even though there might be 4 or 5 around ultimately, there will be one who is officially in charge, otherwise you'd have too many chiefs and not enough indians as well.

lordtopcat: most department managers are salaried, which means they get a fixed rate of pay regardless of how many hours they do, with no penalty rates or overtime, however, these salaried arent fixed at a store level and decided by the regional/area HR people.

This used to be a big problem in my store, not so much anymore though.

We re-opened on Monday after that black out. We would have re-opened earlier, but later the next morning when I was doing open on smoke-shop NONE of the registers would turn on. So I rang IT and they came like 2 hours after we where ment to open and he says to the Supervisor
'They're all fried...most likely it happened when the lighting hit'

Meaning they all blew up pretty much.

After that me and the Supervisor where like :jaw:
Coz he says...'yep...need all new registers, that will take about a week to refit them all!!!
So everyone went home...we have lost soooo much money, I got the joy of telling the customers 'Sorry, not opening for another week or so' Coz they where lining up out side getting angry at like 9.30 (we open at 7)

It's been really fun, but now we're open again :(

Just got offered a PPT after 2 months, but all the shifts are self-serve (I loatheeeee self-serve, having recurring shifts everyday of the week at SS does not do you any good) so is there any way I can negotiate some of the times (Fri 4:30-7:30; Sat 3:30-8:30) and shifts to be changed to registers instead of SS?

I reckon that you'd be able to. Just approach the service manager and ask them.

It is common, but not always.
I was given an interview a day after I applied.
