Of course the work gets done....you'd be disciplined if it didnt ???

The staffing levels are at the lowest I have seen in the last 20+ years, they budget for theft instead of feet on floor...the company IS operating at a bare minimum...all so customers can get out in the least amount of time.....

Our stock levels are ridiculous.....cages are six deep in back stock, and we still have Easter eggs on some and no staff to put the stock out, they are just working the delivery and letting the back stock fester.....our SM rarely, if ever, steps foot in the warehouse, preferring to chat on phone whilst having a costa.....and she's getting a bonus equivalent to about 5 times my annual salary.....why is morale so low?? Can't imagine  ???

Well since some say things are so bad how come you are still trading, and new stock is able to get in ?
after all if no one can get the work done every day then stock should not be able to get in nor would you have sales since no stock would be getting worked ,
and if she is getting bonus she must be hitting her target and good luck to her/him , she is doing what she gets paid for and you for what you do ,

Dear god are you stalking me?? Ok I'm a liar......I haven't worked for tesco 20+ years,....it isn't in decline.....it's my fault the stock is in the warehouse, though judging by your undertones, Twould seem I'm lying about that also.....as it can't possibly be?? And my SM has hit all her targets, through her own sheer will, determination, leadership skills and open and honest approach to the workforce....

Wake,wake,wake... and your back in the room :thumbup:

So are you saying sales will drop ? and we will have no more cuts ?
No, what I said was an economic reality;-
Inflation and cuts-driven profits are unsustainable

As to Inflation is that comeing to a stop as well ?
Eventually yes. As the recent prolonged period of deflation showed, inflation is not a permanent state nor is it perpetual. It's an economic cycle. If it's inflation that's driving a sales increase then you are not growing, you're just putting your prices up to inflate sales. Tesco was quick to attribute sales declines to deflation in previous years...

as to Dave  how long was he at the last company he worked for ?
Irrelevant, and no indicator of how long he will be here. How long has Matt Davies ever spent in a company - including this one?

If the Booker deal was let through,  they'd be hard pressed to block this one for the same reason that the Tescooker deal was opposed for.

How about if they took their jackets off for a week and did some real work like fill the carbs on a night shift for a week, maybe then they will be looked at in a better light rather than just swanning around the country doing talks and such like.
