Huge increase in Tesco home delivery service with 2,500 new drivers and 200 vans

Quote
Tesco has said it is expanding its home delivery and click & collect capacity to around 780,000 slots this week.

That represents an increase of 120,000 from two weeks ago, with another 100,000 increase planned.

Following a recruitment drive, the store said it's added more than 200 new vans and hired another 2,500 drivers and 5,000 store pickers to help handle increased demand following lockdown.

7,500 more potential virus victims ?

To be honest I feel more at risk when around other drivers and pickers than when I am out on the road on my own.  Some of them are not as observant of the social distancing rules as I would like.

Quote
A young Tesco worker was reportedly left in tears after a customer claimed that coronavirus was a "social experiment".

The incident is believed to have happened at a Merseyside supermarket earlier this week as staff continued to work under extreme pressure due to the COVID-19 crisis.

“There do appear to be two different strains,” says Ravinder Kanda at Oxford Brookes University in the UK. “[The L-type] might be more aggressive in transmitting itself, but we have no idea yet how these underlying genetic changes will relate to disease severity,”

Like buses, two at the same time.

As of yesterday, Tesco is also giving staff a 15 per cent discount on all their Tesco shopping for the next four weeks.

This is on top of its 10 per cent bonus for workers.

Why costs have gone up
Tesco expects its payroll expense to balloon by up to £405 million ($500.9 million), depending on how long lockdown measures are in place. The company is paying employees who are sick with coronavirus or in isolation, and has placed all workers who are over 70, vulnerable or pregnant, on 12 weeks of paid leave.

Can't be many over 70 who are pregnant.

Middle classes in south of England were to blame for stockpiling during coronavirus crisis, Tesco boss claims as panic buying sent sales soaring by a third

    Chief executive says 'more affluent customers' were behind the stockpiling
    Just 10 per cent of customers were buying a third of the retailer's goods
    Comes after Iceland boss said 'not everyone can afford to stockpile'

Has the hack been on a 14 day isolation?  Old news.

The following two were news to me.

Tesco staff may help customers with where to park their car on arrival, to help limit the number of people in-store.

    Customers may be asked to stay in the car to queue, with staff letting people know when they can come in store.

Coronavirus: 'I never thought I'd be so proud to sell bread and butter'

Quote
Laura McLellan says she has never felt so humbled as when she and her team of checkout operators were told they were key workers.

The Tesco supermarket worker felt so proud that she wanted to go back in time to tell her school headmaster about the important job she was now doing during the coronavirus pandemic.

Wait till the lock-down is over, you'll be an unskilled disposable shelf filler again.
