lackof interest

Actually I do have buttons, and safety pins (various sizes), a needle threader, tape measure (that's for the colleagues who tell me that their new uniform doesn't fit but is actually the correct size and they need to order a size bigger),

Maybe its time to learn how to sew, lol.

I wore those merchandising gloves for working on frozen as the freezer gloves were too thick to work with speed as they were not practical in gripping the products , I gave up getting them from Tesco though so I used to order my own - packs of 12 on ebay - I should have claimed for them with the Tax man - I also ordered my own cutters & nearly ordered a new freezer coat as it took a year of moaning my old one was knackered but finally the union stepped in & I got one - only to get made redundant 2 months later !

Stuff like that coat all it takes is for you to tell them that unless they supply the PPE for the job you are not doing it they will get it then.

I've changed jobs in store and need to order a different shirt or two and pair of trousers from what I have now. Online it says I'm at my allocation and ordering more will require approval. Will these be done automatically from my store once I order or will I need to speak to someone in my store first before i order it?

Do both. You can still order it (and add a comment as to why you're ordering it, in this case new department). I would also ask your manager to make sure the uniform orderer/authoriser approves it. I authorise the uniform in my store and only question colleagues who are trying to order much more than their allowance or have somehow managed to order something they are not entitled to.

Thank you. My manager is off for the next week on holiday so is there a specific person who orders/authorises the uniform I can speak too then?

I have to order some new uniform, but various people keep telling me different things in relation to sizes. When I first joined the company (that was the last time I ordered any uniform) I ordered my regular size, and it fit. But now, I’m hearing from people it’s best to order a size or two bigger, that sizing has changed since I ordered. What are everyone’s experiences with Tesco uniform sizes?

The uniform seems to be made in batches so it will depend on the batch. It's trial and error.

I’m trying to order a new name badge, as mine is a bit tatty (been in the wash a few times!) and also I’ve changed job role. I log in to the uniform ordering site with my @tesco.com ID, but when I select to order a name badge, it asks me to log in again. My @tesco.com and first name.lastname IDs I use in the workplace aren’t accepted.

Anyone know what login details I am supposed to use for ordering my name badge? I managed to order shirts and so on without being asked to log in a second time

The new design polo shirt for females is awful, the worst yet so all the while this design is prevalent then the uniform I have will be worn until thread bare if need be!

Tesco’s creative sizing with uniform is driving me nuts! I ordered my size - didn’t fit. Went one bigger, still didn’t fit. Ordered two sizes bigger and it was the same size in inches as the first one I ordered! Do they just stick a size label on any old thing?? It’s getting pretty frustrating to keep coming in out of uniform and having my manager ask me why the uniform she authorised isn’t being used

The ladies smart trousers are awful now,button up front. Every time I bend over my backside is on show as they are too loose around hips but too tight on leg!

I’m so glad someone else thinks the same on the new women’s trousers ... I was starting to think I was a very odd shape

Cruella, haha, me too! I preferred the old side zip, at least they fitted better!

I have arthritic thumbs and hated the side zips, but the catch at the top of the front zip is even worse to do up.  >:(

This is what I am finding too - and every time I bend down I’m scared they might tear!
