average  hours  worked out  at  59 hours a week,  with the  cleaning and book work thrown in,  oh  and NO  mealbreaks, single handed  you had  to  live on take aways after hours, which  made it below  the minimum wage..........

Relief managers seem to be paid more a day than the actual managers.

It isn't surprising that relief managers get paid more than permanent managers...it's the norm for most trades...supply teachers, nurses, etc. are all paid more than those in the permanent position...it's the reward for not having the permanency.

As a relief  Manager  ,   I am self  employed, no  holiday pay,  like  employed managers get,also   do same hours, as  SS  has no  bar staff.for me personally  I think  SS  had a bargain................

Is there anyone out there that has been told by SS to pay back the shotfall at retail cost for not reaching 60% on food? Did you pay them back? Did you fight it?

Surley this policy has to be wrong, illegal?
 
What do u think of them doing this to managers especially if the managers have never been aware of this?

My partner and i were managers for hump for 4 years and for 3 of them (when we had area managers) we never had to pay this money if your gp wasnt 60%. Then when things went to the dark side we were told by humph pay up or your terminated. We paid under duress and went to the union (who are a godsend) and we are currently taking humph to court as the money he took from us is nowhere to be seen on the pub accounts, we are not expecting to get our money back but if we can disrupt this little tyrant in his daily bully boy tactics we will. At the moment he still hasnt paid back our bond (he actually owes us the full amount) but you never know a miricle may happen.

Wayne - thanks for telling us a bit more about what's going on down there in London - we don't seem to hear much about the SS empire down there. You mention courses at Bride Lane - this seems to be the address of the Crown and Sugarloaf pub and registered address of Samuel Smith Southern. Can you tell us a bit more about this place and what goes on there please?

I hope you find a better employer and that things work out ok for you in the future.

Cheers,

Jim

It did house theb two area managers until he got rid of them ,due to them being very competent in their roles. It now houses two terific girls oh sorry ! one full timer yhe other who does part time as he was gonna ask them to cut their hours in his pathetic attempt to cut costs.as it is the woerkers who are ruining the company.
The socktakers plus one who runs the LEGISLATIVE COURSES ARE ALSO IN ATTENDANCE
