Working cash office 10 hours on Chtistmas eve, that is going to be pretty damn busy.
I think I'd rather work cash office on a day like Christmas Eve, rather than registers, or anywhere else in the store. No customers working in cash office :D

oh, im trying to convince the manager to make me a self-serve supervisor- what dont you like about it???
It requires alot of patience on my part, it really is mind-boggling how stupid some people can be when trying to use a self-serve checkout and then they get all shitty at me when I'm trying to help them. Its not that hard to wait till the light turns green, remove your bag, wait a tad then keep scanning your shit you dumbfucks. Then when I'll try explain to them why the machine is going spaz, they think I'm being condescending and won't accept my help, which means they continue not using it properly which aggravates them further, then usually start kicking the machine, storm off and leave there items on the checkouts.

The nerve of some people I swear, but you do get those really lovely people who are willing and grateful to be helped and ironically those people are usually the ones who get out quicker than the angry, impatient ones. Thats what I don't like about it, I'd much rather registers to it anyday :)

Haha, yeah I know cash office will be much better. When I say busy I mean I may have only 1 hour to read my book in the night instead of 3.

I always wondered how people do these strange hours, I was under the impression it wasn't allowed under the Agreement to work more than a certain amount of hours per day/week, and yet I'm always seeing people at my store, generally managers, finishing the same time as I do or later, even though I know they've been there at least 2-3 hours before my 9-hour shift starts :speechless:

The most overtime I would allow myself to do is 20-30 minutes, and I consider that a great service to the store :haha:

Ergh, young kids annoy the hell out of me.
Ours complain that they dont get enough hours, and then call in sick every weekend hungover. Wonder why you dont get offered more than 4 hours a week? There are perhaps 4 or 5 who don't, the rest are unreliable and suck.

*end rant*
tell me about it! this one girl got a job, came every second shift, then her mum rings up and complains that she's getting too many hours and only wants one every two weeks. So yesterday was one of those shifts, but she doesn't turn up so we ring her up and she's like 'oh, i'm in Hobart haha'. eurgh, quit already.

hours this week
m: 9-5
tue: 4-9
wed: 12-9
sat: 9-5
sun: 9-5

on tonight's roster, instead of a register next to my name it just has a smiley face, and my CSM won't tell me what it means and keeps laughing about it. but I have a sneaking suspicion i might be the store santa...

and trolleys 12-9 christmas eve, don't even have a reg. DEATH.

seems they've probably decided that they will put you on PPT, but havent actually made that official yet to capitalise on casual availibililty over X-mas/NYE, untill you sign a sheet with your roster, your not technically PPT, unless they want you to be, if that makes sense....once u sign the roster sheet, then there's no disputing your status.
Hmm sounds right. Im already assigned to work on christmas eve -_-

Just wondering also does that mean i get paid at a casual rate or PPT rate? Im guessing PPT but im hoping im wrong lol.

(btw im getting 10 hrs this week now but still not roster to sign)

Would a casual like myself get paid extra working on Christmas Eve, or is it just normal pay?

I think this chart means the money they are losing from wasted/damaged/out of date/etc stock.

That's the impression i got firsthand anyway.

Like that's the amount that could be avoided if people picked up their act.
