I wonder if tesco gonna give a kind of compensation for existing staff with the same position in the same place, and how they gonna think about it if tesco don't.

And of course the rest of us, as existing staff, if we get nothing. Kind like loyal insurance customer who have to pay more than new customer, in that case, I just get insurance for other company. As for the job, I guess time to go even slower and care more less than before.

I can see mates doing the same job for other companies offering a joining bonus arranging a job swap between themselves.   8-)

Tesco: It allegedly begins checking the customers' receipt when they leave the store.

USA late again  :question:  ;D

I'm unsure as to how customer safety fits into the story  ???

Just highlights how  the overworked established staff are taken for granted.Be nice to have a bonus in the lead up to Christmas.Maybe a chocolate orange if we are lucky.At least we've got a wordsearch to do for Halloween.

Bonus?! The people at head office won't even give us a hot breakfast on a cold winter morning! 8-)

Hot breakfast on cold morning , oh bless ,you work in a building with heating and need hot food , good job you dont work outdoors

What is this, the Four Yorkshiremen Sketch? ;D

I've done my time working outdoors in horrible weather. Now I'm indoors and I'd rather like a nice, hot breakfast on a cold day. Like the people at head office get, in spite of never actually doing any work. 8-)

Why do people assume that the only reason people prefer to have their shopping delivered is because they are lazy?   8-)

Only Vlad has expressed that thought, to be fair though, I'm inclined to agree, the whole idea of spending extra money on delivery fees and dealing with the hassle of ridiculous substitutions and dates/quality of items being poorer than what you would choose  when the store is less than a mile away is indicative of the entitled culture of todays TikTok generation.

Back in my day we were as efficient and resilient as the cold hard turnips of communist Russia.

I've seen 80 and 90 year olds do their own shopping. Anyone who can't or won't do the same is either lazy or weak.

I don't think I'm being unfair. :)

Tesco drops in Which cheapest supermarket table - with five cheaper rivals

Tesco has slid down a place in the Which cheapest supermarket monthly ranking, making it one of the most expensive on the list.

Well well well  :o

The only reason I would shop in Tesco is if it was the only supermarket nearby but Aldi and Lidl are within walking distance now and even Morrisons is cheaper. Tesco’s a rip off you are just funding the manager bonus or giving yourself more work to do if you’re a GA. Year on year the SM fails on his “colleagues recommend as great place to work” despite his best efforts. The GAs always have something to moan about.

just curious

Slightly off topic  - but Tesco boast about price matching Aldi on hundreds of prices ( Allegedly) , You would have thought Tesco were beating Aldi on hundreds of prices by being cheaper with the buying power of Tesco not matching them ? No wonder there loosing ground ?

Another mess of an investigation has ended up in court, and resulted in the claimant winning.

Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.
