This is how seriously Tesco take security. We have one security guard in the evening, from Friday to Sunday. He stands at the podium watching the cameras until he gets bored. Which usually takes about half an hour. Then he wanders around, looking at the stock and chatting to other members of staff.

I pointed out to the managers that if you have two guards, then one can watch the cameras while the other patrols. But if you only have one, he should stay on the podium for the majority of his shift. Otherwise the cameras are useless. Of course, Tesco managers being what they are, no action was taken and the so-called guard still waddles around the shop for most of his shift.

Sounds like yours is at least better than ours, all he does is stand near the door saying "hi mate" to every single person who walks through the door, when someone was helping themselves to a large amount of fresh salmon recently all he did was stand and take notes. Bring back the old style guards and store detectives who would think nothing of removing shoplifters or anyone whos behaviour was unsuitable.

No, you can't have REAL guards, it's UK.  Here a thief can take whatever they want and walk out not being interrupted.  You can not put a hand on him/her.  You must even open the door to their van so they can fill it up, it's called "being polite".  Oh and you must be more helpful to ethnic minority  thief, as you do not want to be named as racist.

"The Director now holds 155,415 shares representing 0.00% of the shares in issue." - as a point of interest, his entire shareholding has been accumulated in the form of SIP shares  8-)

Ovasees, saw this the other day doesn't really scream out confidence in the business when he's invested so little shares. Would love to see his shares in Unilever & his reaction that his old mate got the job he's longed for.

Tesco's rule (to comply with stock market terms and conditions) is that the CEO should have a shareholding equivalent in value to 4 times their annual salary - the rules are there so that the CEO invests in their own business (giving confidence to investors) and sharing the risk. Dave Lewis is the only FTSE 100 CEO not to put his own money into the business to satisfy that requirement (by comparison, the first thing David Potts did at Morrisons is purchase £1M of shares with his own money). In order to comply with this, Tesco has 'bent' their own rule by giving that shareholding to Drastic through a SIP scheme (free shares) as part of his package which effectively is an indirect bonus - he profits from shares at no cost, risk or investment on his behalf.

One security guard if you are lucky. Have seen checkout staff and managers being used to stand at the podium when the only guard goes for a break, does a walk round or is off sick.

Ovasees, Tesco's biggest mistake letting David Potts go Or not promoting him to CEO when Sir Terry left.

DJS1949 the news artice does say: A spokesman said: “We have announced to colleagues that we have taken the difficult decision to close the store.

“We have worked very hard to improve the performance of the store, but this was ultimately unsuccessful.

“Our priority now is to explain what this announcement means for our colleagues and wherever possible, offer them alternative roles with Tesco.

“We would like to thank all our customers who have shopped in our store and we will continue to do our best to serve them through our other local stores on Norwich Road and St Matthew’s Street.”


but thats a paper saying they have been informed!

The paper also says a colleague Wednesday when asked knew nothing about the closure.Wednesday is today so someone ain’t telling the truth.

They should do it at different times of the day also maybe reduced it a bit more earlier .so customers are not hanging around same time every day.

Lol, how pathetic do you have to be to fight over reduced food? God help us if a No Deal Brexit is as bad as the worst case scenarios. We'll have punters killing each other over the last loaf of bread! ;D

At least work will be a bit more interesting...

Thank God successive governments haven't cut thousands of police officer's jobs. At least we'll be able to rely on a well staffed and equipped Police Service to handle the wide-spread and violent public disorder lack of food will cause.

Oh, wait... :o

That seems unbelievable! In my store the computers still run windows XP (a system now old enough to drink - 18 years old!), and the pdas aren’t much better, they run so slow and need rebooting every 10 minutes. if the system can run on them it can’t be that good
