It’s all down to forcing in fresh stock deliveries. The fresh team is undermanned, on too few hour contracts, so not enough time to clear or condense the back stock cages, leaving the fridges crammed!
Fresh delivery is sitting in the yard or warehouse for hours on end, while staff try to clear spaces in the fridges! All hands is hit and miss, as the company prioritise IDQ and one in front, above replenishment and adhering to the cold chain rule!

The continuous beeping of the checkout drowns out any questioning of rationale…the grabbing barstools in the hierarchy are blinded by the £ signs and their big bonus…let the minions on CSD deal with the backlash from the irate customers, who’ve had their festivities ruined with diarrhoea or food poisoning from their rotten food!  >:( >:(

And then when they push the bird in front of you nearly gipping then say "smell this it's off" well bugger me I could smell it when you walked in the store these are the genuine one's it's the ones who come back with just the receipt and then say I had to throw it away and demand a manager that know exactly what they are doing wanting cash only, and then they get it and more, little off turkey subject but one of the managers in our store once paid out for a new carpet when a customer had said they dropped a bottle of wine on their carpet ? they did show him an empty bottle of red wine and he caved paid for the carpet and the wine if I remember correctly around £500 plus wine £4  ;D ;D ;D

We once had a bloke, who had his jeans ripped by a collapsed trolley…they were obviously a high end brand expensive pair, which he had disposed of and had no receipt!

It was part of my then role, to communicate with the customer, I was instructed by the GSM to send some Tesco high value goodwill vouchers to the customer, by recorded delivery with the Royal Mail. The customer insisted that there were no vouchers enclosed on receipt, and the envelope was not damaged or tampered with on delivery  :o :o

The GSM did ask if I may have dropped them, but wasn’t accusing…he cancelled the voucher codes and sent more himself!!

Lo and behold, a few months later the customer tried to use the vouchers that he insisted he hadn’t received  >:( >:(

Love how when anything like this happens people are "mortified" a bit of an over reaction to a self serve till having an incorrect age restriction set up on it.

Such an insult, after removing 20 £1 voucher and some other voucher, they only gonna get a pen?
Why just open a skittles and give each staff one single skittles to make it obvious, only cost them a bag this way, dont even need to pay for it, just grab the one that gonna be wasted.

The major supermarket whose staff smashed target over the festive season were notified on their message board at work that they will be given a 'personalised pen' for all their efforts.

I can imagine most were very sure how they would like to respond, however a need to remain in a job most likely moderated most peoples response.

If the picture is the actuality and not an artists impression I like the idea of tables and chairs outside (in good weather) for weary shoppers to rest a spell & recharge, perhaps with a beverage etc before diving back into the fray of everyday life.

I do think there is not enough made of Al Fresco refreshments in UK.

So, according to Jason Tarry, we had to go through all of this nonsense and waste all this time, effort, energy, resources and money to figure out that what we actually needed was a cheaper priced range of products across the entire estate?

If only we'd have thought of introducing tertiary brands as a way to combat discounters years ago. Oh wait...

OvaSees it's what we're seemingly good at these days... wasting time, money and resources then axing X, Y and Z to then go around and do the same again.

2020 -  2021, "Retail staff are key workers! Without you risking your health to keep the food etc on the shelves, the nation would grind to a halt! Thank you for your service!"

2022, "Right, either accept the new shifts, T&C's etc or there's the door. Don't let it hit your backside on the way out, loser"

Where Tesco went wrong with Jack’s discount endeavour

Quote
It’s always good to see brands trying different pilots and experiments but in this case, it seems like it was to the detriment of Tesco’s core audience and business.

Large traditional brands like Tesco need to learn to have the right people and mindsets at the helm of running disruptive pilots and experiments.

You don't say  ;)
