    The Woolworths Thread

    Unreal. Almost 15 years old this thread! Also hope you Woolies folk are keeping well! I resigned in February last year. Made it to 10 years, and now have an amazing new job in the public service that is keeping me going. Missin' the priority one calls and customer jokes "if it doesn't scan...

    I’m actually in QLD, where they don’t pay LSL out after 7 years unless you get really ill, disabled, or there’s some kind of extenuating circumstance. What a joke. My St Kilda location is just to throw people off haha. I accepted my casual employment offer yesterday. So gunna work once every...

    The Woolworths Thread

    I’m trying to decide to resign or not. I’m at 9 years but have been casual and then only part time the entire time, so dunno if long service leave is worth it? This year I’ve only been doing 10 hours a week. Should I stay?

    The Woolworths Thread

    Can someone help me with the procedure for when a customer steals at the self serve? We have our regulars that try but management don’t care and find it too time consuming to get camera footage despite my repeated requests. Can’t really call the police without the footage without the customer...

    There's a scam going around at the moment everyone. One of our operators was targeted recently - if you ever see an EFTPOS screen which says ALLOW MANUAL KEY ENTRY, make sure you hit NO and tell a supervisor, because someone is trying to enter stolen credit card details into the pin pad. It's...

    All stores are getting "Pickup", the new name of Click and Collect. How exciting for all. Also, stores in our area are apparently getting new scanners - ones that scan barcodes from multiple sides of the product, like ALDI has. Anyone else got any new news? I also asked to check a ladies bag...

    Just wear them lol, it doesn't matter. If it were me I find the polo more comfortable cause it's less restrictive when constantly bending and moving but it's literally up to you. It's just not supposed to be the other way around ie. wearing Longlife polo in other departments but my store are...

    Nothing else goes in a gap scan really. It used to be stuff that is low in stock, but they changed it a while back so that its just stuff that is completely out of stock. @FlyingKanga you will get a really nice amount back when you submit your tax return.

    Thats in VIC though, I just looked at the QLD website and it says this: Source: https://www.business.qld.gov.au/running-business/employing/employee-rights/long-service-leave/entitlements Why is QLD so backwards :(

    The Woolworths Thread

    Hey guys can anyone tell me about Long Service Leave? Does it differ depending what state you're in? I've been PPT for around 6 years and casual for nearly three years before that. My 10 year anniversary is coming up mid-next year and I've sort of been hanging out for it to take my LSL and then...

    The Woolworths Thread

    Just politely tell them your circumstances have changed and let them know your new availability of three days a week and what days they are. If you are casual you have the right to say no. If you're contracted those days, you can write a letter asking to reduce your contracted hours and give...

    Get a contract if you can. Yes it's a bit less money, but the benefits your coworkers describe are right. With a contract you have job security, annual and sick leave, second discount card, and can still be flexed up for extra hours if they need you. You'll also be cheaper to roster on than a...

    That sounds like there was a saved transaction on there... if you try to sign off and there's still a saved transaction on that register, it'll ask for supervisor codes. This supervisor sounds like a spightful human. Come work and my store haha I'm awesome to work under :)
