Getting back to the topic in hand, i smell a rat....

this open day, a fair few people went along, and i only heard of 2 getting a job, then rest all got the 'sorry, although your application was very good, we have not got a position for you' letters.

In this 'open day' it was stated that everyone who was offered a job would be either full time or part time...and it would be permanant.

Now, i know of several people, including myself, who have since had phonecalls where the guy basically says 'people have dropped out, and theres now a place opened up... i personally said no, i had made other arangements, but a few i know have accepted. they recieved another phonecall confirming their start date and instructing them to hand in ntice at their other jobs to start on monday.

they did as was told, went to work on monday where they were hearded onto a bus and taken to another store for 'an induction' where they were told they would only be there for that day, for 4-5 hours, and have the rest of the week off.

they were also informed that they wouldnt actually begin 'training' till the store opened, they would just be getting the store ready for opening.

Imagine their supprise when they get home to find an offer of employment letter on their doorstep, stating the hours as promised, but a little footnote at the bottom stating: as explained, this is a temporary position for 12 weeks, although we reserve the right to end this contract at any time.

Be careful, those who have left permanant jobs to go there... from what i hear, all those that were contacted last week are in this position, and will only be used till the store opens!

I'm pleased i turned it down ;)

Thats exactly what i've been hearing, it happened to a friend, she's accepted though. I wonder if it's true that so many people dropped out and now suddenly theres loads of people getting offered the jobs... and i wonder why their all temporary?

i think its tesco luring people into a false sence of job security in order to get lots of bodies in to fill the shelves before they open.

the other reason may be to get rid of the wasters after 12 weeks, but they all should have been told it was not the job they applied for, but a temporary one.

Its disgusting the way they tricked so many people, not only that, but their first pay wont be till the new year, and they will only be paid these 5 hours for 1 weeks work! Who can live on 5 hours for a weeks wages??

if they have offered contracts, and started people, they should honour those contracts, wether they are at work or not!

Thats exactly what we were talking about the other day. I suppose it gives them the chance to test a few people before settling them into permenant positions. I wouldnt care, there were supposedly hundreds of applications and yet so many people 'dropped out'... hmm.

Were the people who worked at Somerfield supposed to be getting kept on to work at Tesco?

apparently they were given the choice, and those who stayed are working in other tesco's doing training right now...

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
