Maybe they will flick us all a spare few quid as a thank you for the best Christmas in a few years. More likely they'll just dispose of more of us and get a few cheap managers to run the show.

Christmas sales ,and sales for the last quarter UP 2.4%.
That's a pretty poor showing for Tesco - food inflation hit 4.1% in November, meaning they grew at just over half the rate of inflation, so in real termm they shrank again. Source: https://tradingeconomics.com/united-kingdom/food-inflation

Could the loss of CM lead to changes on pi our store didn't change any hours on pi when the 12 dead line for legals 8am for decreases came in last year.  I am very sorry to lose our CM he is a great manager, there are some out there.  Worried that changes will be made before the manager leaves, our dept is a mess as far as hours are concerned, thanks if anyone knows.

Depends if you are meeting those deadlines or not. You say the hours are in a mess, if this is the case & you are missing the deadlines, then right hours right place should be done. I can't see a stock control manager taking more responsibility on & then keeping it the same so they look bad.

Just my opinion  :-X

But sales don't always go up and down with inflation - people usually adjust their spend , a 4% growth over the Christmas period I would be huge

When you really analyse the figures, Tesco recorded it's worst non-food Xmas performance since 2009 (despite having it's UK business led by somebody from an entirely non food background) and saw yet another further decline in market share against Aldi and Lidl recording record highs - so yes, people adjust their spend (by going to where prices are lower) but sales do go up and down with inflation since you are paying more or less for the same goods - that's how economics works. It's not just my view, it's also the view from the industry;-

https://www.ft.com/content/ea845fb0-e1d2-3ff4-999c-a17e4f3cee61

So if Tesco's core grew below inflation at the most critical trading time of year, coupled with the above factors, it's an underwhelming performance from the self-acclaimed market 'leader'. This is further backed up by the ludicrous claims that Tesco was the winner at Xmas - when Morrisons posted a sales rise that was almost a full percentage point higher. In the results, Drastic also said he had maintained the most competitive Xmas basket price - which again looks ludicrous when you consider that M&S was £10 cheaper than last year on theirs and Morrisons maintained the same price on theirs, thus not passing inflation on to their customers - and of course, Aldi and Lidl were all-round cheaper anyway.

It's not just Tesco - all the Big 4 are playing a similar game - but there are lies, damn lies and then there is Tesco's (spun) results.

Couldn't agree more with you. 2.4% increase while inflation higher than that, with lowest price from some product, and higher inflation on fresh food is a joke to celebrate it. Unless the cost of product and overhead cost plus operational are the same ( really doubt that ), I can tell the number of product sold might be lower, not mention the profit, because retail is not about the selling, but profit.

But what can we expect, from management team who still cant decide our platform retail, is it still in landlord style of retail or full competition retail platform, or keep it like now, none of those two, not going anywhere, just a mix of both platform without knowing the main strategy is ( the only strategy here only to eat lower staff "flesh" to make sure the higher, management  job safe with full mouth and tummy, a zombie style )

But i wouldn't be surprise if big bosses don't know that either, as long as they call aldi and lidl as discounted supermarket, it only show how ignorant they are in modern retail platform style.  Maybe they should go back to the late 90's  in some other countries to learn the changes, what it is about and how.

Keep treating their staff as free loader and customers as suspicious only going to bring this company down.

Tesco have got rid of over 10,000 people in redundancies and they expect those people to continue shopping there... then there’s the extra discount card that’s another 10,000 potential customers. Plus the call centre staff! They are clearly nuts. Wouldn’t shop there again even if it was free! Disgusting staff management, no morals and do anything to save money from the “little” people ..please take a day off unpaid? ..(so I can use it on a day I’m short .. to pay someone else)

Big announcement at our place was the changing of rotas and bringing in a sunday afternoon shift. We were told on 28th of feb and told consultation started 20th of feb??? When we talked about auto gates we were told it definitely isn't happening. So it definitely must be

Never shopped in a Tesco since I left ( not even a fuel station). With how they are treating the workforce at this time and all the cloak and dagger initiatives they seem to have, my money is better placed elsewhere.

If I was made redundant/left Tesco I would never shop there either. The shop is over priced due to directors creaming off huge bonuses right down to the TMs on the shop floor who walk about in numbers. What do the customers think when they see many shirt and tie TMs and no overworked GAs with holes at the knees. Rich/Poor people do not like to be ripped off.
