Stock Counts
« on: 29-03-21, 03:23PM »
Surely only this company could:
get rid of stock counters
get rid of stock managers
schedule full counts on fresh foods when;
       mfp range change
       end of period bakery counts
       most stores struggling with holidays post covid
and expect all done in one day
wonder how many recounts required
wonder how many screen counts done

very interesting to look from afar ......

Screen counts are monitored, any store suspected to be doing them it gets highlighted to store manager, and area manager in express and metro.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

I’m sure you get plenty of support f*$k all that is......it’s the mentality of basing your man hours on the least busiest day of the year.......just do what you can do.Your just hours to them now not a human being,they have got your well being as top priority though,what a joke.

"...just do what you can do"?! It sounds great until you fail and end up in the office having Lets talk. Seen it, experienced it...

Same c**p each Easter and Xmas, the office have no clue on the actual amount of work needed to complete full counts and the stores don’t support the stock teams to deliver it!   Any Let’s Talk should be swiftly challenged and counter acted in relation to support given, as per the brief, by other store teams!

Shambles, in my opinion causing more issues than fixes!!

Eh, not sure I understand. Are you saying they are not supposed to count stock and if they do they are challenged as to why?

Its a report that shows how quick counts were done, so for example produce doesn't take 15mins :)

Is this the 14x counts out of interest?

I know they've said the full counts could be completed by this Saturday at the latest if resource allowed (agreed, none  ;)) but I can't imagine that'd work very well as we head into Easter  :thumbdown:

Nope screen counts is where someone prints off all the count sheets that we used to use years ago and simply goes onto 141 and agrees with the sheets. or changes just one or two, and has resulted in people getting into trouble in the past.
