From what I've been told,the hub is used as a spy in the sky to ensure all processes are being followed. I've heard tales of investigations being carried out if waste processes are not seen to be followed, i.e. Manager not seen checking every line against the print, investigated. It is not a performance management tool, rather it is used to check compliance, hence extra cameras. Figures of costing around£10 million mentioned, apparently to be saved on shrink. So despite no security in store, replaced by agency guards at twice the hourly rate,if they turn up, the co can spend money to safeguard what is thrown away. Systems so old they are not fit for purpose and more shrink caused by stock not arriving than walking out of the front under some toe rags jacket £10 m p'd up the wall to tell me I've not checked waste in the right spot. Somebody must be on an earner somewhere.


This is not the Hub.

The Hub used to be an intranet site for head office colleagues where they could see vacancies, get info and announcements etc.

Has long since been replaced by Our Tesco.

 ;D ;D That IS the HUB. You're a bit (a lot) behind times.

So, does anyone actually know for sure if the horror stories about loads of sackings etc are true first hand ... sounds like head office creating urban myth type stories to prevent us all going on the rob coz they don't trust our asses

Also , can the cameras actually scan the contents of a trolley of the way round then again at the checkout , and if there's a difference it will be flagged ... sounds like made up stories again just to keep us plebs in our place

Yes 8 sackings, 3 appeals but got turned down, 1 manager dismissed,not sure on quantity but a few warnings from first to final.

Checkouts took the brunt, but then it’s daft things like staff shopping, back gates left open, waste booking to waste cages left open.

Has anyone heard of anyone being disciplined yet because of the hub?

Just want to add to this, a dotcom driver got taken off driving because he was an alcoholic (Customer smelt it, phoned Tesco and Tesco had the police waiting at his last delivery) he was then moved to warehouse very lucky to not be sacked on the spot. The hub then caught him reducing packs of beer and buying it resulting in the eventual sacking.

The HUB is just designed to get rid of old full time staff to be replaced with cheaper “Tesco value” staff that haven’t got a clue what they are doing and will take any job going and do any job management tell them. The HUB will start firing staff members for not swiping their clock in card at the correct angle next

Firstly, when the hub flags something it goes to store manager so it's up to them what to do. If you are not doing anything wrong you don't need to worry. If you are not steeling you don't need to worry. If you are not filling in six days in safe & legal book you don't need to worry. If you are not throwing out unrecorded waste you don't need to worry. We all slip from procedure from time to time. We cut corners when under pressure. We just need not to fudge things.
If you have an accident it's all recorded and should be simpler and easier to resolve. If you are asked to do something that should not be done it will all be on camera. It protects us too.
The next part about shopping. There is a trial going on that scans a trolley as you enter self service. As you scan things it picks up if a bottle is weighed as onions, things are missed etc. It triggers intervention from colleagues.
As for customer theft, what can the hub do, how far can it go?  If a customer steals a bottle what can it do? To my mind the best we could expect is face recognition next time they are in and the store contacted to be vigilant but I'm not sure if the tech is at that level.
